I nearly always schedule a half about 3-4 weeks before a marathon and I always end up racing it.

The only time I didn't was when I had 2 close together - mind you, I set my PB at the one without the half. Hmmmm. 

I think if you're not going to race it then running at marathon pace would be a great idea.

Berkeley Runner - The logo sits just below the racer back and sits in the middle of the back  its not too low.

I was once quoted £70 - £100 by a receptionist to get my certificate. I went elsewhere.

Nodster - hi

Don't worry about the convocation, just yet. It doesn't get released until a few weeks before the marathon. It is basically an invitation that you need to print and take to the expo - along with your passport (as proof of Id) and your medical certificate (the link that Jimbob gave). 

However, if you keep checking in here there will be a flurry of posts once the convocation becomes available.

Suze - do you mix up your training? Like short fast runs, pyramids, Fartlek etc?

i found that improved my pace in my longer runs (ok, only a bit). 

Also, March - you would have been peaking for Paris, now you're just getting back in the groove. 

I guarantee that within the next 3 weeks, your running will be more fluid again. 

Plus you've got the excitement/dread of Asics 26.2

DLR - with regards Jimbob and I, what happens in Paris stays in Paris. That's what you told me anyway. 

I had a better run today, strange how it works out like that.

Italic run - I think it sold out late November last year and the year before, so its on schedule, despite the early sale of places. 

I tend to make up my own plan. Like others, I find proper plans a bit restrictive. 

I had an odd run last night. I wasn't really in the mood for it and found it hard going. 

Still, at least I got out there.
