Finally took the plunge and entered yesterday following a decent 20 k training run yesterday, will be my first marathon. Always wanted to do one but never got around to it.
There's a decent video here of warm-up exercises from Strength Running which might help: https://youtu.be/v73-flygfyI
Might also be worth checking out hotels around Crawley/Three Bridges/Gatwick, on the train line from London.
Watford half marathon date isn't on the Watford Harriers website yet, entries for this year's opened in October.
I've already entered, enjoyed it last year, and local to me.
