bought some gore x run ultra shorts a few months back and they are the comfiest shorts i've ever owned, have inner compression short, extremely light and gel pockets at front.normally about £70 but been very cheap, around £25 online at amazon. or as others have said, bodyglide or vasaline but some people have said vasaline has stained their kit.
Looking forward to this but missed nearly 2 weeks training after needing stitches in my head, so need to get a long run in this week. training could be better in my head as only done a 14 miler as my longest run so far but i run before breakfast on empty most of the time. time to test the fuelling strategy for on the day. Sounds like the race packs are about to be sent out too as i had an email to amend my address etc before the 23rd August.
Thanks for the link Sticky88 ( I thought I was correct about the college ) I was considering using the train but sunday service gets there too late. Good news if the parking arrangement worked well! The car it is for me then. Good luck.
I'm in! First marathon too. my running buddy hoping to get a place tomorrow after he missed out on pre sale even though he had a pin, so may be going it alone with places going this fast! Anyone know how the parking went at the college last year? wondering how early to get there as I'm less than 1 hr away.
