haven't managed to get in a run today, ended up volunteering at parkrun instead of running! odd jobs and house cleaning in anticipation of my parents moving in next week for most of the day. 1.5 hours planned for the morning though, and a kit dress rehearsal, as part of Portsmouth Coastal Marathon taper.
Great stuff Craig., the course looks pretty flat, and of course once you are halfway you know what the other half is going to be like! Looks like a slight potential to take the wrong path in and out of the beach/mudflat bit, so u hope the marshalling will be good at that point although it may look better from the ground!
Sometimes its safer to find off road paths to run on, as most people you meet are either runners, or dog walkers. Of course i have no idea if this would be the case in rural Brittany. If you are on the road as you found out it just lets people tail you in vehicles. Is there anyone you know that you could run with?
