Re: headphones - I did not wear them in 2012 as abided by rules but lots of other people did. So did wear them in 2013 again with lots of other runners and nothing happened to me.

Mike yes - after last year where I did exactly what you did this year and went off to quick. This year went off at 7:45 pace and when Spring hill came I was ready for it and went up it at 8:35 pace and better still could then immediately pick the pace back up again at top. My last 5 miles was a minute quicker than my first and my last mile was 6:58 so I obviously got something right this year. Not a PB but a good 1:41. there again my PB was at Lydd!!

Lily and others great news that you all in - it is not steep but I would not miss it for anything (well apart from being in Orlando in 2012) - the atmosphere is something else.

Andy - No there are no showers at end. Re: the Metro your wife should have no issues getting to end but it will be busy. My wife has done it before on several occassions and even got off at 2 stops to see me run by and then got back on again and then to end - however she said that was busy. Last year she simply got metro to gateshead Stadium and watched us go by there and then got Metro to finish and saw us there.

The Grinch - sometimes people think too deep into things instead of looking for obvious. At end of day if you don't enjoy running why do it - tact is to get people enjoying from start

OS - I find it hard at the beginning of a training plan to run a 10K at any pace - I tend to slow down - at least on a treadmill I keep going at same pace and it then convinces my brain I can still do it and the weeks after are easier
