Tigerspaw, the G2E honestly sounds a bit grim but it will do for getting me back into the swing of things after having a pretty crappy year since the D33 in March.
I remember cycling it in my pre-running days and was struck at just how monotonous a route it was. It must have taken me 10 hours to cycle it that day as I was so unfit and got 2 or 3 punctures.
Despite this seeming negativity I'm quite looking forward to it. It's a big challenge and although it's 6 months away I need to start getting myself sorted out now if I want it to go well so I now have a good reason to put the running gear on when I get in from work instead of being able to doss in front of the tv all night.
Enjoyed the D33 on Saturday by by God, if I was able to kid myself on about my fitness beforehand I certainly can't do that now!
It was a real slog in the 2nd half and I was a good 30 mins slower than I would have been last Autumn so really going to have to buckle down between now and the HHF if that isn't going to end up with a 20 mile death march at the end.
D33 is a great wee race to kick things off for Spring so will certainly be back next year, hopefully better prepared.
