Big thanks for your feedback & tips , much appreciated. I need to do a bit more research on the Morrocco H/M as suggested, still the thought of doing it is keeping me psyched up so feel like I can face running in the cold & wet weather round Manchester. Cyprus in March sounds enticing so I'll check that out too.
Im quite comfortable at 10K+ , probably doing about 10 miles now on long run. Want to work up to half Marathon. Thinking about doing Morocco on 27 January 2013 as a way of motivating myself to keep up training over winter. Has anyone does this before? Any tips/advice. Also Im bit confused which day the Half Marathon is on - some websites say 26 January some say 27 January same day as full Marathon. I was going to fly out on 25 but not early enough if half is on 26! Love to hear from anyone. first time Ive used runners world forum. thanks
