Dave 928- I'm hoping the gamble is worth it I feel confident they will sort it out. Just shows how hard it is to organise a big event. At least I don't have to enter a ballot and get rejected again like London
this will be my last post in Berlin thread and just wanted to finish by saying well done everyone you are among the 1% who can or choose to run marathons. It's been a great summer training for this event writing about it and reading how others are doing.
my plans are as follows- wait for my London reject email, and if I don't get in as I suspect I'm going to enter Manchester marathon in April and train hard to see if I can get in under the magical 3:30 mark. If I do get into London it will be to enjoy the run as i don't think 3:30 will be possible with such a large field and so busy.
then my autumn marathon will be Florence in November. Nice and late so plenty of time to train in the summer and a great excuse to go for a holiday.
good luck to you all and look out for me in another thread!!!! All the best
