Finally signed up - been talking it up for the last couple of months and now that I have got round to it I am looking forward to it. Home town marathon and starts about five minutes away from my front door so can't wait. My girlfriend will be pleased she can go back home and have a nap once I've started! Not run up the mast for too long so might try and rediscover my climbing legs that way over the weekend!
Took a massive 3 minutes off my PB today - down to 1:43:10 now which I'm very happy about! Cracking course that was only let down by the coastal wind - though there's nothing that can be done about that. Stayed at the Norbreck Castle hotel - it was like I was staying in the 1970s, it was awesome!
