Just returned from couple of days away on business.
My, we are getting nervous aren't we.
Think a good plan is to sprint as fast as you can from the start, intimidate the Kenyans, let them know who's boss, it'll destroy their confidence, and then just try and hang on for the last 26 miles.
Vixx 76, I've hired an apartment, I always do when I do a marathon abroad, I don't need to worry about finding a decent restraunts on Sat night, will just saty in and cook plain pasta, wake up and eat exactly what IO normally do for breakfast without worrying about what they'll have, wehn breakfast starts etc... . Whats more, you get more room than in a hotel, and usually about the same price as a hotel.
