Istanbul Marathon 2014

Posted: 10/11/2014 at 15:47

Great - my wife is already there so we will probably use a cab. And as she is already there I can get one person access to the BA biz lounge if you want breakfast. Bit early for beer unfortunately but I don't mind if anyone is travelling solo.

I'm in a mess after a bad Berlin and two local ultras since, so will just be taking it easy on the day.

I'm running this too, and my wife is Turkish if anyone needs any help. I'm flying out BA at 9.40 on Friday and going straight to the expo. Could probably share a cab if anyone is doing the same.  The expo is quite some way from the old town, but much nearer the airport.

Marathons that you can run at a gentlemanly pace

I agree trail marathons may be the way to go - easier mentally because of more variety and changing scenery. If you ever get anywhere near Colchester, try this one - - 7 hour cut-off.

There are quite a few local to me - it depends where u are ?  There are groups on facebook and probably on here if you can find them - notably Liz Smith and Paddy O'Flynn along the Essex / Suffolk border area.

Ridgeway Challenge 2014

I've had to pull out and have a paid room in Swindon for when I finished with wifi and breakfast at a decent hotel. Very cheap to anyone who wants it....

Good luck to everyone - I'm very jealous as the conditions look better than expected !

I never normally run with an IPod but it helped a lot through the night.

Kent Roadrunner Marathon 2014

Thanks - sounds simple. While I am sitting comfortably in a chair....  My garmin should help - I've never done more than 3 laps of anything, so counting might be a challenge

Curious about how this feel as my first proper run after TP100 - feel pretty well recovered though.

I've done quite a few 50s with no foot problems whatsoever but the TP100 destroyed them. Probably a number of reasons but complacency due to lack of previous problems was the root cause. So you are right to wonder....

A guy did the Thames Path 100 in that shirt, which can't have been long after he got it....  Mine hasn't been worn yet so may need an airing. It is a bit LOUD ... !

I'm just hoping I can shed the multiple layers of skin I killed on the Thames Path before it starts.  And I'm not sure I can count to 17...  How does this band thing work ?
