Decent enough Parkrun from me as well; 16:47 for 3rd ( 2nd place ran 16:47 as well ), seemed like quite a few of the local big guns were out & about this morning so none too shabby a performance & feeling quite good about my HM in a months time.
No autumn Marathon for me Lev, I think the only one I could do that would work for me in terms of timescale etc is Valencia, but that's not going to happen. possibly could do the Portsmouth Coastal Marathon for "fun" / a decent training run IE a 2:58 / 2:59 showing but aim to run under 3 hours, no faster & no slower. I did the Luton Marathon a few years ago & looking back on it, one has to admire the grimness of it all. Must be one of the oddest Marathons in Britain.
Good luck in Berlin, I reckon you will do well & then you can run New York for "fun"
I ran all of my decent Marathons in Saucony Fastwitch 5's which felt equally great in a Parkrun or a Marathon, unfortunately I feel they ballsed up the Fastwitch 6 & I wish I had bought a few pairs of the 5's whilst I still had the opportunity.
Ran my Marathon this year in Adidas Hagio 2's which was a mistake & became an issue after 20 miles.
Just recently I bought a pair of the Black Hagio 2's because I think they are a very decent trainer, just not for a Marathon! unless you are really small / light, I don't think you will get away with it, but great for a 10k or HM
I like the rigid feel that Adidas trainers seem to have.
