ABsolutely loved it - though my legs are not thanking me today. Great event, lovely smiley marshals and great support. So glad we recced it to death beforehand, it really helped to know what was coming next.
I am delighted to have completed my first marathon. Big thanks Phil to you and everyone else who made the event possible.
I'm swinging between realy excited and downright terrified at the moment - I'm even dreaming about the marathon!! Wish it was Sunday already.
As for the trail v road shoe debate - there are one or two bits that will be muddy, depends on how much rain we actually get. Up to the Mast usually drains pretty well, it's the section after the Roman Road and the bridle path out to White Coppice which could be interesting.
I'm going with trail shoes but not my Inov8 Orocs - they're great but just too heavy.
Good luck to everyone running & see you at the start .
