Thanks Keith L - good idea about the 5k. I am raring to go now - flights booked and I have gone for an apartment in Charlestown mainly on the basis that I liked the look of the sofa and it had a bath both will be very much appreciated at the end of the run!
Must now concentrate on the York Marathon in 3 weeks and then the Maravan at Cleethorpes in November.
Thanks will have a look at both - in fact have been looking at AirBnB as I have used them many times before. I am thinking of going on the Friday but was a little worried about doing too much walking - many thanks.
I have been lucky enough to get a place in the Boston 2015 Marathon. I now have to sort out getting there and getting some accommodation. Would welcome any advice from anyone who has already done this. Where is the best place to stay - near the start or finish - recommendations, anything you can tell me.
This is my first marathon abroad - I have tried to find other threads on this subject but can't. Any help appreciated.
