Well done for your qualification as well lowrez. Keep working on that CC batch

I am holidaying in Australia during November and have picked the Great Barrier Reef Marathon, perhaps not a PB course but it does only have one brutal hill in it at about 18km, good prep for Comrades me thinks!!! Just need to sort the jet lag out though!!

And Becca, no point expending too much energy for a sub 3.40, you still had 20 seconds to play with

Chicago Marathon 2015

Hope you all have a great time. Ran Chicago last year and had a great time. The support is brilliant. Watching the sunrise over the amazing sky scrapers as you stand at the start area was pretty cool. Make sure you check the bean out in the park as you head towards the start. Some lovely dark images to be had reflecting the Chicago skyline. And apart from the slight incline near the end, its as flat as it comes. Will hopefully catch the race online somewhere next weekend.

I have done that one for the last couple of years but have something different this year planned. Its a nice course, although chances of a head wind coming back along the last 2 miles are very high!!! Its mainly trail with some kissing gates in places. If its rained a lot prior to the event it will get very muddy in places, basically the course is an out and back. Very nice and lovely camaraderie that time of year. I think they even have mulled wine at the feed stations.

Nice to have a another friend to the party, welcome Mac3. If you are travelling from the UK jet lag is non existent, its only 1 hour ahead so its perfect.

Another +1 for the city lodge. I stayed there last year and it was great. Close to the beach and to the hilton and expo. And of course this year, fairly close to the finish as well.

Quick question SD, I am right in assuming that the buses taking us to the start leave from outside the expo / hilton and you buy the bus tickets in the same place at the expo as per this year? This will be my first down doing things on my own so to speak!!

Good luck with everyones qualifiers, hope taper madness isn't setting in.

Lowrez - well done with the scottish half and good luck today for the english varient.
