hey elizabeth ellis 3, it is my 40th next year- not on the day though, how great is that! After about 7 years of running have finally decided it is the year to give the full marathon a go!
yes dressing up as a runner would be the way to go, but i feel the need to make an effort,( like 26.2 miles in the heat with some wine in the bloodstream isn't enough effort! what a stupid thing to say! but i do),
so my ideas up to now are, a bunch of grapes, a bottle of wine or a cork. never going to win the most inspirational outfit with those ideas eh!
more important obviously is getting the place and the accomodation sorted.....will work on that first
i am interested in this ine with a few friends as a big birthday celebration too...it looks as though registration opens in february and the dressing up theme of medoc's history will prove to be a challenge!
i really want to do the walk the following day (lush) so will make sure we look for accomodation closer than bordeaux.
i do hate running int he heat though, might be a bad choice but just sound like an unmissable event..pray for cloud!
any tips and hints for organising this whole thing particularly places to stay would be most welcomed!
