The weather has changed massively this week and looks like we're going to be lucky to have the weather tomorrow rather than what's to come a day or two later! A tail wind over the b!tches will be helpful too, and I can't imagine the stretch 10-12 miles can be any worse than last year!
I was certain I'd be wearing trail shoes given the rain that was forecast earlier in the week however I'm going to take both runners and trails and see what it's like when I get there. As Ed McK said, best not to stress too much about it, but I just won't be able to help myself in the lead up to the race! It's just one of those things!
Thought I'd say hi since i've signed up for Brighton again. Was going to give it a miss and do London assuming I'd get a GFA entry, however my 3:06 is no good now they've changed the quaifying time to 3:05!
Anyway, I absolutely love the Brighton Marathon so I'm quite excited about doing it again and will be aiming for sub-3, and hopefully achieving it this time!
Re Tonbridge Half, it's a great half. Quite challenging but that makes it better in my opinion. Just hope they sort the distance out this year since it was well out last year (see reviews). I'll probably do it this year. I've also entered Dartford Half (July) and Beachy Head (October).
Great time Neil. I did pass you a few times on the out and back bits (obviously you were coming back as I was still going out!). I did shout out as I remembered your number (plus you had 'Neil' on your top which helped!).
