Trigger2: I´ll do Warsaw marathon next weekend and will probably get the result from the London marathon ballot a few days after that. If I´m not successful I will pick another European marathon in april, most likely Vienna. But in either case I will take some time to recover from Warsaw and then start training for my spring marathon. Hopefully we will get a mild winter up here in Scandinavia...
Is somebody doing this race or is it somebody who has done it before, and what did you think of it?
The race is my main target this fall and my goal is to improve my PB (3:38) with a few minutes, The course is reported to be flat and easy to run so I am optimistic about an improvement. As they have pacers at five minute intervals between three and four hours I´m thinking about following the 3:35 pacers.
I have good experiences of Poland. I have visited both Krakow and Gdansk/Sopot and thought it was good. Nice people and low prices. However, Warsaw is much bigger than the other cities I have visited and it is described as more "communistic" in the architectural style, so it may not be as nice as the other cities I´ve been to.
