TST - on 14th Dec I will be doing either an "O" event around the Goyt Valley or a race near Tideswell, so I might possibly be able to drop in at the pub
(but don't order any food for me)

meanwhile, 30 years ago:

“I never wore a watch in races and I didn't know what the record was,” Jones says. “The splits didn't mean much..."

GBM - oh dear! best laid plans and all that... Good Luck with your toe-dipping

TB - you can buy your own - Melton Mowbray don't come cheap!
I actually jettisoned the last couple I had on BS when I decided I wasn't going to eat them - they're behind a hedge above Bollington if you want to go and look for them...

I see GBM DNS'd the first race in his self-styled series
and FOAR outsprinted Kerrie - what a gent!

I'm having Thursday off work to do a day in the Lakes before we lose the good weather
Kirkstone-Fairfield-Patterdale-HighStreet-Kirkstone is the plan - looking at 7ish hours out - company welcome

I was going to mention the mental side, but I'm not sure if that's something you can prepare, or even get through experience
I have seen people just "crack" and retire, even though there's probably not too much wrong with them
what I try not to do is think about how much is left to the finish, just about the next section to the next CP...

if you've recce'd the course though, you should have a good idea of the "extent" of the challenge, so it shouldn't come as so much of a mental "shock"
it also help with pacing (one of my points)

top 3 DNF reasons that I've seen are:
1) using new shoes... feet ripped to shreds by blisters
2) going off too fast in the early stages
3) not eating/drinking enough (esp in early stages)
