Hi, I'm a 'late joiner' on this thread, I only made the decision to run Dublin last week! It's on my birthday so I am 'throwing caution to the wind' and jumping on a plane from here in Cornwall to come and run around Dublin!
Just recently ran a half in 1:27 so am hoping to crack Dublin in under 3:30. PB to date is 3:48 - Paris 2013
The old clothes are a must! I usually pop in to the local charity shop a couple of days before and kit myself out with a stinky old sweater and a pair of old stained jogging bottoms for a couple of quid. My wife took a picture of the start line just after the runners had left in Paris....it looked like every homeless chap in the area had decided to strip off for the day!
Looking forward to it...and the first beer since Christmas at the end!
