after starting this thread i have been in my own world running and preparing for a wedding!! Nice to see people are getting stuck into the big mileage. I have had a poor winter and its only over the last few weeks i have just had to go for longer mileage runs - still done two 20+ now and managed a hilly 22 miles in 2.50 on Sunday. Should be part of a great few weeks for me - getting married on the 5th April - London Marathon on the 13th - Boston on the 21st as part of my honeymoon - only condition with the fiancee is that she can spend loads on 5th Avenue in New York if i am allowed to run. 

Which hotels are people staying at - i have the Doubletree at Cambridge - Flying out from Heathrow on Friday morning on Delta

did a 1:30 at congleton today on undulating course - boy does a marathon take it out of your legs - they felt like dead weights out there - absolutley no power in them up some of the hills. Anyone else back running yet?

Not done it before and had to pay for a Hilton as it's also my honeymoon 

Flights seem reasonable though

Twice - nice race, stadium start and city for the first part then suddenly down Amstel river - this bit can get a bit windy - then back into city. Deffo flat and really love the race and would recommend it.

We have booked the Hilton in the Cambridge disctrict which overlooks the river and the downtown skyline - kind of had to do something good as it is part of the honeymoon  -
