Can anyone advise whether there are alternative mapping options for the Garmin Forerunner 205? The mapping that comes with it is ok but very limited in detail. Is there anything out there anywhere near OS level of detail? Thanks.
I'm interested to read the views on what to wear. I'll probably bring a light jacket just in case. what about the legs though. Do we reckon leggings or shorts???
Lastly, whilst I've done a few marathons and hammered out a 20 miler the other day, I've been neglecting the hills a bit (somehow or other my training route always seems to avoid them). Has anyone else done this race by just training on the flat and if so, how did you get on? N.B. please feel free to lie to me for the sake of my morale.
I'd agree with the comments above. Atmosphere not quite up there with the FLM but this wasade up for by excellent refreshment tables (I'm sure I was gievna a brandy at one stage!!) good orgainisation, more space and a nicer city. Hotels weren't too expensive (last minute.com was fine for us) and transport to the start wasn't a problem so you could stay well away and still get the metro.
Just read through the string since the race and concur with most of the sentiments. did the half for the fifth time in six years and have got to say it was the best orgainsed yet. also to say thanks to Hugh Brasher and Sweatshop for taking the race over a couple of years ago when the City Council pulled out. The councillors thought at the time that the race had gone 'stale'!
I've also got to send my condolences to the family of the runner who died
Alf, Abersoch was where we stayed. I failed miserably in running around there using the cracked rib as an excuse. am back into it now with a 13 miler yesterday. i just need to build in a few hills now!!
