I won't make Y Pantri On fri eve as I'll be travelling, but it sounds a great place and plan to visit for a pre race caffeine fix and some post race recovery.
My stated time of 3'59 is a bit of a random number! I reckon I can do a flat marathon in 3'45 and an earlier post suggested an extra 15 mins.... I'm not sure I believe this!! But i don't have anything else to base my time on! it's good to have a target, I'll run the best I can, if I meet the random number target I'll be chuffed, if I don't I still expect to have a great day and won't be disappointed. Counting down the days now!
What happens if you wear something they don't like? Are you asked at any point to remove it? Disqualified? Or is it not an issue unless you are expecting a podium place? If the later I don't need to worry!
Becca do you have any more info on what ' logo obscured' means? I often run with a cap, I find the peak keeping the sun off my face and white very thin material / mesh help with the heat.... But all the caps I own have (fairly subtle) manufacturers logos or race logos. I guess I can find the video of the race and see what people wore
Great report Macca, yes I sure you and gave you a cheer, but my attention was split between supporting and watching/advising traffic! I think maybe people are under estimating how strong the wind was and how much of an impact it might have.... I cycled across from home to Abingdon, have been running lots recently so probably 6 weeks since I'd been on the bike, left home late, took a wrong turn on route so added on a couple of miles and still arrived early..... Was feeling great about how much the running must have improved my general fitness..... Until I went to pedal home... It was tough, felt like I was putting lots of effort into moving incredibly slowly! Realised I had been blown to the start, not simply super fit... It must also have had a big impact on runners, whilst it must have been behind occasionally, head winds and cross winds really sap energy, and I'm sure windy days lead to slower times, so great running everyone in tough conditions!
