Lowrez, I'm booked into Belaire Suites as well.
Latest: 21.5 miles on Sunday in 3:27 after a 5 mile cross-country race on Saturday. So getting the distance back, although my speed for the shorter distances is way down. My GP has managed to get me in for a bone density scan later in the month, so at least I will know that either I'm okay and can stop worrying (after the ankle fracture followed by the pelvic stress fracture), or if I'm not okay then start doing something about it (I'm already taking supplementary calcium and vitamin D - have been doing since the stress fracture).
Trying to choose a marathon for qualification. I do like the low-key SVN races. Could aim for Saxon Shore 27th November... or Dymchurch again on 4th December. And they have one on 26th Feb if I don't make the sub-4 hours 8 or 9 weeks from now...
Any recommendations for mid- to late December or January marathons in the south-east, preferably low-key?
