Well, I endured insults, punches, spitting and piss being thrown at me (and that was just for prioritising watching the tour over celebrity masterchef) but I got there in the end taking the yellow jersey on the final day. Splendid.

Quintana for the Vuelta?

I'm in.

Let's hope it's more like the 2015 Giro and less like the 2014 Tour!

Cybistrider - I'll be at Chester too. Sub-2:45 is the target.

Well done on the PBs Selbs and DanA!

Meh, I won a Virgin Money branded Ferrari along with my guaranteed entry!

Wardi - That's always been my strategy too, but the bargains appear to be drying up. I just picked up 2 pairs of old Bostons at £60 each but no old Adios around and the cheapest of the new version are £85 down from £110 RRP!

Congrats to the leading ladies!

I have a shoe question. Is anybody running in anything that they'd consider to be reasonably priced at the moment?

The last few years I've been running in Adidas Adios and Bostons. Since the Boost versions came in prices seem to have rocketed. Previously I could pick up pairs for £55 to £65, now it's £80 to £100.

There's one retailer that I can still get non-Boost Bostons from but I expect they'll run out soon. I'm wondering if it's time for a different brand.

Thanks. It sounds good. I've run Helsby a number of times which isn't too far away and may look at Lake Vyrnwy Half as a build up race.

Just signed up for this one as my 11th marathon. Thanks for the course descriptions so far. Is there any other 'need to know' info from those who have run it before?

Working away this week in a hotel with decent facilities, so I decided to measure my minuscule todger.

3k easy on a treadmill followed by foam roller, stretching, swim and sauna. Feeling pretty good now but the next 2 weeks will be very easy. I have the Welsh Castles Relay and Freckleton Half to look forward to in June and I don't fancy losing any time through injury.

Congrats Ballesteros. Good report and impressive final mile!
