Leggy - Welcome to the thread. You've picked a great event for your first marathon. Stick around and ask any questions or share any worries you have. Plus don't worry, freaking out about running a marathon is perfectly normal.
Hope everyone out in storm central is ok. Apparently we're over 100mph winds now!
It took me ages to get to work. All trains cancelled, roads flooded, roads closed, bits of trees everywhere and the police diverting pedestrians near buildings where things are getting wind damaged with bits falling off.
Kaz, I would hope your work wouldn't send you out in that. I was fighting not to get blown into the river after parking the car and walking into the office.
