Thats brilliant BB! I did 3:10:33 at 20 mile Glos today (my watch) - v pleased but keeping up the pace for those last 6.2 will be a challenge to say the least! thoroughly delighted tho' beautiful day and scenery and glad to have those miles "in the bag" ! Happy training all
theres a sub 4:30 thread on here - why not join in, lots of motivation and support and I'm sure there are some "first timers" on there. good luck with your half - most race predictors indicate something between 1:50-2:05 should be able to achieve a 4:30 marathon. Don't start too fast! Save the energy for later. (Thats usually my mistake tho!)
I appreciate the charges to the charity, but its probably worthwhile as that and the 5% has to be weighted against the fact that the charity gets the money IMMEDIATELY, and can therefore earn immediate interest etc. Much better I think than pledges on sponsor forms and having to wait and gather it all in. However, maybe CWL have a special deal with bmycharity, because when I tried to set up my charity on it the charges were definitely v high - I think registration was 150 plus 50 pound per month - all payable by the page owner!!! Personally I just couldn't afford it!
