Not sure if I'm in the right place here, no GNR posts for 2 weeks? No matter.
I entered this with a friend who didn't seem to get in for some reason (I'm not totally convinced he actually entered...). I was thinking of not doing it but I've realised that I would be daft to pass this one up.
I've not made any travel/accomm arrangements yet. I looked on the nirvana website and liked the idea of the campsite but it seems to be sold out. The only option they seem to have from Manchester costs £125. I guess I could maybe just bite the bullet and cough up, unless anyone has any other ideas?
Well it rained today while on a 13-miler and I lived so now I know I'm good to go. It really hasn't rained all that much up here in Manchester recently (believe it or not) and I don't train every day of the week so I've mostly avoided it.
Despite living in Manchester it doesn't always rain here and it's very rare that I have trained in the rain. Where I have and it's a bit uncomfortable I'd just cut it short and run home.
But I've put in a lot of work for my spring marathon and I'm going to be at the start line rain or shine. I confess I don't know what I should be wearing if I get up on the day and it's raining. Do I get a runner's rain top just in case? Or do you just wear your normal gear and grin and bear it? What do people do?
