Hi All - been missing for a few days, but sounds like you are all doing really well!! Longest run ever last Sunday, 15M which was just under the 2:15 mark the schedule called for, so I was shattered but happy.
I have just been sent the race rules and it clearly says you cannot run with an ipod / iphone etc. This is potentially massive to me as its my first marathon and I'm using Runkeeper to keep me on pace. Is this ban going to be enforceable across 12000 people? Have any of you faced this before? I've never run with headphones before now, but am really loving the five minute refocus on pace that Runkeeper gives me....
Any suggestions or ideas, other than ditch Runkeeper now and manage without?
