I entered straight away-so its too late to back out now. Ive always wanted to run a marathon without having to travel too far to take part. It was on a wing and a prayer that the organisers would have things sorted by the time of the race. As others have mentioned the website is poor in terms of info available and not a lot has been added in the few weeks its been live. They should have a proper Q&A. The site says that the race is all on closed roads, but someone mentioned that they thought they had heard on the tv yesterday that some of it will be on open roads?
Gladrags - I did ask the question about kit bags on their Facebook page, and they said the bags would be transported to Bath. My plan is to have some cash and phone in my kit bag to go home in my tracksuit on public transport. The plan will fail if the bag gets lost in transport or is emptied! I might just take my cheap backup old phone instead.
The problem starts way before any form of schooling starts with parents. Sitting your child down in front of a tv to watch endless videos that keep them quiet doesn't help. Interaction by reading and talking to them makes them more ready/receptive for formal education
I think the comments made by a number of us reflect the different views and scientific research done on the subject. There was some good stuff done by Harvard uni a few years ago on running technique. I wasn't advocating that everyone should go forefoot. Its just that it worked for me. If you are fit,healthy,comfortable landing on your heels and happy with the times achieved or just happy to run, many experts, as mentioned by Squeakz don't recommend change. However Stef's problem has been with him for years and seems deep routed. This could be a medical problem that can only be diagnosed through being checked out , and/or technique that subsequently needs adjustment.
