Dublin is a fantastic Marathon , only two hills and they arent that bad , sub 5 should be no bother to you , I ran it in 4:19 off a 2:15 half time , followed the HH plan also and it worked brilliantly , you have the miles done so dont panic and enjoy the taper (which is hard to do), eat and hydrate properly especially the 3 days running up, if you work shifts plan your food you need to be a wee bit selfish with your diet , dont go off too quick and dont try anything new , I used hi5 gels citrus , one long run I lifted one with extra caffeine, man I had a headache for about 6 hours, the atmosphere in Dublin is electric on Marathon day so mostly just enjoy it , best of luck

Booooo Paul , must admit I never fancied the alternatives much either , Manchester is supposed to be great and flat, 2 Belfasts was enough for me , Walled city is excellent or you could join me for a little dalliance around the Mournes
