Dachs, your brilliant response makes this thread worth reading. 

Don't ask

A question might be basic if you have been running for years, but not necessarily for a beginner. I think it is quite insulting to label them as 'lazy'. Surely it's a good thing for  people to engage with the forum? You're not obliged to read/answer their posts. And if they were that lazy, surely they wouldn't have taken up running.

I agree that the American website is far superior. And a lot of the articles on here seem to be recycled from there. It's a shame – I think they are missing a trick, particularly when it comes to reviews. How hard can it be?

Does age grading favour older athletes?

Philomena – yes age grading does get you into the London Marathon. Well, not the actual grading but running a good for age time which is surely the same thing.

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.
