Blackpool is a good race for your 1st marathon mate!! 95% flat and a good race to use for pacing as you can break it down very easily.
I did this as my 1st and Chester as my 2nd this year and the experience gained really helped.
Hi, just got my pair of New Balance 1226 through the post and tried em on. They feel like slippers and are mega comfy!!
I'm still not done with my Reeboks and have another pair to wear out before I use these so just wondered what to expect when I do get round to wearing them!!
Well done Stu, be proud that because of you the event actually happened, brought people together and everyone that took part felt proud to have done so!!
Dont get bogged down after the fact that sometimes people just want to be part of something and thats enough. Pats on the back are fine but not needed by most.
There's only a few that need recognition and thats yourself and all the co-ords mate!!
