I think my number is 10420 but had better check before it gets added to the list. FAJ is coming down to watch but don't think she'll be running it sadly. A parochial question - how many Embra folk are doing it? I recognise a few names from the Edinburgh marathon thread! Hello to Debbo, Bryan the snail, Wee Col and Eeyin!
Clueless thanks for your words of comfort! As for your water situation you could try one of those belt thingies that has a little bottle holder? When I did my one and only marathon (v slowly) I carried one disposable bottle in my hand, one in the belt and then had boyfriend stationed at mile 19 with another one containing a caffeine and guarana drink. Legs still felt hellish but brain was wired!
Sorry to be a johnny come lately on your thread but I entered this race in December and suddenly it's happening and because of on-off injury the most I have run so far in training is six miles and er, I am a bit worried. Anyone else hoping for a sub 3hr??
