Good work, TOIG,TFIW! Berlin is brilliant. Training over the summer is just fab and, like David, I did 2011, 2012 and 2013. I loved every one. The course is great, the people are amazing and Berlin is just the best!

I'll be 40 next year and the closest I ever got to sub-4 was 4hr13 in Amsterdam 2008. I'm really hoping I can build up to a great run in Berlin! Good luck!

I'm in too.

Commiserations to all this who were disappointed today.

Berlin is just a fab marathon. Brighton first so 2015 is going to be a great year (hopefully!)

Iain Moore- I live in Geneva now (week days at least) so the medical is not so easy. Besides I'm fitter now than 2009 so the certificate is still good

Anyway, that 32.55km run I did just now was for laughs. 2h38, avgHR 85% (bit higher than I would like), but given I didn't run at all for 6 weeks leading up to Christmas, I seem to be getting back on it now.

TD - 'I seem to be getting back on it now.' I love it!

OO-51 - surely you have a local doc or two to ask…?!

Weedy - 'Good luck to everyone getting their medical certificate signed today. Statistically speaking, Monday's the day when doctors are most likely to agree to requests from patients on account of them having spent all weekend playing golf and being in a good mood. Okay, I probably just made that up, but it sounds right.'

Golf? In a good mood? On a Monday??? Pah!

Have been to Cologne for the marathon twice (it was the first I ever run). Never seen so much post-race grub lined up. Great place.

TD - sounds ideal!

Iain - 10% achillies/PF, 90% CBA I'm afraid!

DLR - glad you're overcoming the potentially-fatal (to your running career) CBA...

Yer Maj - I get freaked by just thinking about sub-4 Too much pressure for a first marathon

Orbutt - if you've tried and failed with the anti-fungal paint your GP might give you some systemic anti-fungals if that's what you want. I think that your immune system is meant to deal with it if you give it time.

BM - absolutely right. Orbutt - see the doc, he might give you some anti-fungals, but frankly, unless the nails are breaking or painful, I suspect he won't. It'll settle given time.

I can tell you where I haven't been RR, and that's running!  Prior to last Friday I'd ran 6 times since Berlin and only 2 of those since October.  Did 6k on Friday and 10k on Saturday and found them incredibly tough - had to stop 4 times in the 10k!

Hopefully I can slowly increase fitness and get round Paris ok and then go for my sub 3:15 somewhere (venue TBA) in the autumn.

And yes, I'm still grubby if not truly dirty.

DLR - what happened to the running dude? (Sorry been away…)

Dirty Dirty Dirty Leeds Rob wrote (see)

At the moment the shortlist (in no order) is Flanders Fields, Koln, Warsaw or Budapest, but there may yet be somewhere from left field

DLR - I'll hopefully see you at Koln I hope (I'll be doing the half though).

Glad all had a good Christmas, and very happy Maus that you and TD got to spend it together.  That's the way it should be.

I am well and truly into the taper irrationality - I awoke this morning convinced that I will not manage a half marathon, let alone the 4 races I have planned 2 weeks form now!  I know it's in my head, but that is where I live.

Dannirr - I've seen your Garmin stats, you're well on the way dude. Stay cool.

Leggy - here's hoping the new year brings you better luck.

Much quieter down here this morning but a lot of fallen branches and bits of roof lying around. 5 miles this morning, now I'm off to the airport. I wonder where I'll end up ?

Can't remember who asked but it looks like there will be another In the Long Run charity run across Europe next summer - Sophia to Rome, via Greece. Another hot one .

Good luck to Maus and TD and anyone else on the move today.

*Apologies for trespassing on the thread*

Glad you got home ok RR.

ITLR part 2…?

Merry Christmas, all.
