Running without music

Posted: 18/10/2014 at 17:22

As Faithsdaddy says, it seems to me music is often used by those who want to escape the fact they are performing the arduous chore of running. When I first started, I always listened to music because I thought I needed the distraction. Now that I know I actually like running, I feel no need. It's a nice opportunity to think about things and it can also be helpful to listen to your breathing.

Energy Gel

I usually take one gel during a half, when the going gets tough at around 9 miles. It gives you a boost, maybe just a psychological one but who cares?

first half marathon lots of people passing out, is that normal??

2wheels, what do you mean about runners race fuelling? I would be interested to know.

If you have sore quads, walk down the stairs backwards!

European Marathon - Berlin or Budapest

As far as I know it is the first time they've changed the date. While the circumstances were out of their control, they must have known about the the clash for a while before deciding on the change of date. National elections are planned more than six weeks ahead.

Firenze (Florence) Marathon 2014

I don't really see how they would be able to/would want to check with everyone's GP. In my experience, it is fine to sign it yourself, but an EA membership might give you more peace of mind.

Or they may accept an England Athletics card, which is cheaper (£10 at the moment I think).

Richmond Half Marathon 21 September 2014

In what way is it London's most exclusive half marathon?!


European Marathon - Berlin or Budapest

Posted: 20/09/2014 at 14:03

I would be a bit cautious about the Budapest Marathon. This year it was meant to take place on Sunday October 12. On August 29, they announced, last-minute, that it was being changed to Saturday October 11 because of elections. I have never heard of race organisers doing this before. It meant anyone who had planned to arrive on the Saturday had to either change plans and book new flights/accommodation or pull out. And those who'd arranged to arrive on Friday and then to have a day chilling out before the race won't be able to do that either. Plus they've now changed the start time to 11am instead of 9am which not everyone is happy with. I'm just glad I'm not doing it!
