Hi I have just signed up for the Chester maraton in October, this will be my second marathon after doing the Edinburgh last year. Has anyone ran this one before?

HI Camberwell
I too failed for the London Marathon 2013.
I entered the Edinburgh marathon and had the best time of my life.
The crowds were fantastic,and the runners were so friendly.

Awesome experience.

Wow.......Get you Cbo.

Can I have your autograph?

Looks like the other runner behind Japhet is going to play a game called "Slapping you mate around the ears whilst their not looking".

Well done you.

My wife asked me how my first marathon went and asked me if i'd ever do nother when we were sitting down having a picnic in the runners village.
I cannot repeat what I said on hear without being banned.

But a few days later and guess what?
I'm looking at doing the Wolverhampton Marathon in September so I can beat my Edinburgh time by at least 30 minutes...

Then HOPEFULLY I will get a congratulations magazine in October for London.

Are you thinking?


Well done you. Fantastic time even if you struggled the last few.

What a great weekend for myself and the family.
Before I waffle on about my run I would just like to say what a beautiful city Edinburgh is.
I was very nervous going to the start and getting there was a real pain.
Had to get a taxi in the end 4 miles away and ended up costing me ??17 with all the roads closed. (Think I was robbed).
My Run was good for me but I know I can do better.
My first mile took 14 minutes as I was desperate for the loo and had to queue for ages.
In the end I managed 5:14 which I will take as it was my first.
I know I can do better and will do at my next one.
I also thought the organisation was spot on and the crowds were fantastic.

The last thing I will mention was the topic of running with mp3s.
I didn't run with mine and glad I never, because the camaraderie I had with fellow runners outweighed my own music by a mile.
Thanks all.

Hi All
I too have done all my training with my phone and app and music.
But I am going to run without it.....I think that running and talking to you guys will give me the mental motivation that music cannot.

BRING IT ON !!!! (In caps i know).
everyone on this forum must meet at the finish and have a celebratory drink.
If the fast ones don't mind waiting for the slow ones. lol
I will be in shorts and a t-shirt and covered in sweat.

May the force be with you on the 26th.
(That was from my son Jack)

7.5 miles yesterday as the last of my sunday runs are over (except 1).
My pace is still not good,I try and run slower than my race pace but end up running 50 seconds a mile quicker.
I really hope that I can manage to control myself on Sunday and not go of too fast.
Hope your all well and looking forward to it after all our training.

Hi All

Felt really really guilty today, as it's my birthday and have had to take in the cakes for all.
I have have had a couple of fresh cream buns..emmm
I am going to have to run a few extra tonight though.
I have just looked on the Edinburgh Marathon site at the F.A.Q and i'm gutted
to find out that under Scottish Athletics,you cannot wear an MP3 player.

I have done all my training with my Asics app and my music,and I have have looked at last years videos and have seen people wearing them???

Is anyone else planning to wear them?

I know that they are not in the spirit of things but my music will help me I think.
