KR - the main part I found myself running solo was soon after halfway to maybe 21/22 miles - I don't think I passed (or was passed) for about 7 miles ! However, in the last 4 or 5 miles I started passing other runners and was able to keep focussing on the next one ahead. The worst bit by far is a loop through housing estates which is included in lap 2 at around 24 miles before you head up the slope onto the prom for the final mile or so. This loop isn't encountered on lap 1, as at the start there's a trip through the town centre which is missed out on lap 2.
MsE - classic tapering - you'll probably run a stormer
speaking of which - 4 easy today - right hamstring sore, also wondering whether to ditch my usual mara shoes for a pair I've only run 3 or 4 times in, and never more than 6 miles, but which feel much more cushioned than the usuals . . . . . . .
rest planned next 2 days (travelling Friday), 15 minute jog Sat morn,
no 27992 green start for me - if anyone wishes to stick me on the list . . . .
