i don't think there is a better last drag of any race than the last 4 miles of London. Boston is the special one - the grandaddy of all marafuns, London for atmosphere on the day is more or less on a par. Tokyo and Berlin not quite as good but still amazing races. Can't comment about the other two WMMs but hoping NY is same sort of atmosphere as London.
I've heard it has some quiet sections plus we know it's a tougher course. I'd love to run close to 3 hours over there but I know i'll have to work very hard in the summer and make a noticeable improvement. Then still have a very good race execution on the day. There's got to be at least 5 minutes (if not more) for course difficulty so a 3.05 at NY is comparable to 3.00 in London.
Hi TBO2 ..... good job at London. Hope you're back in the hat today. It was perfect running conditions compared to Paris. Paris was amazing though and a lot of fun .... and a very scenic course. That was my 3rd Paris and 3rd London. I'm back for London next year and skipping Paris probably until 2018. I'll still remain here on this thread as this is my "home" on RW
Bedders, great news the misses is in for NY! I'd love it if mine ran it as well .... she's done a few halves but is pretty adamant she won't do a full.
Btw nice sub3 action at That London last week .... I also snagged my second "career" sub3 and I was greatly helped by the incredible atmosphere and perfect running conditions. Planning to work hard at my training over the summer so I can run well in NY as well.
