If I am accompanied by my own Mariachi band playing a medley of 180bpm Latin American covers of classic Heavy Metal tracks at 90 decibels, will I be disqualified?

It depends - do they do requests? 


Only if it's Heavy Metal. Will that affect the likelihood of disqualification?

I'd like to enter this race please

Trainers for hilly muddy runs

+1 for the Speedcross for mixed terrain and not too much mud and also +1 for them wearing out really quickly on tarmac

If you kept your pace then you were probably working harder in the last few miles to maintain it...I would think this is normal..

would be my guess too

Just go to a shop with a treadmill and try on a whole load of lighter shoes till you find one that fits and that you like the feel of. When I first bought some lightweight shoes, a nice bloke in my local running shop brought me a huge selection of neutral shoes in my size which should theoretically have been pretty similar, and there were some I loved and some I absolutely hated. He let me run in every single pair for a good few minutes; the whole thing took ages but was worth it.

pretty much

I had similar before my first marathon. Cleared up just before the race and run was fine (apart from the 5 weeks missed training due to injury).

Reykjavik Marathon

the race is completely within the city, other than new and old downtown it is like a big suburb.

great race route. I really like the culture day, lots of music in shops etc.What Minniemonster said re viewing. The Blue lagoon is dear but it is a one off, thoroughly enjoyed it.

Auto lap or not

My Garmin approach to London.  Three data fields: current lap pace, total time, total distance. Autolap "on". Pace band on the other wrist.  

The autolap function means I don't have to manually press the lap button 26 times, and I keep an eye on the lap pace for pacing.  At each mile marker I check the time against my pace band.  Whether the watch beeped 10 or 20 seconds earlier is irrelevant.

And don't moan when your Garmin says you ran 0.3 miles too far.  Especially when it has you supposedly popping in for a cheeky Nando's at Canary Wharf.
