Rich - I signed up for Paris as my first marathon, with a slower half time than your Bristol time and achieved a sub 4h. Don't do yourself a dis-service, a careful, balanced training plan and you can definitely complete, with a very good time!
Bob - Sounds nasty, glad you are relatively unscathed.
Dan - I've always fancied going to Scotland for a race - looking forward to hearing abut it seeing if its worth a mini-break next year!
Nicole - Good training, keep up the god work, just remember to listen to your body and ease up if you get a niggle.
Katy - Looking forward to seeing you convert those excellent 10k and Half times to a marathon time! Sub 4 is well within your reach
I'm in the ballot for London, but I've already paid and signed up for Manchester the week before. So I'll probably defer it UNLESS the OH gets in too, in which case I'll run it with her. D-Day next week I think!
