Thanks Scott, picking up my new bike on Sunday so we'll see. Bit ofg a shock walking to bike shop, starting from scratch makes £130 running shoes seem like a bargin

Knee has given out again I think my body is telling me that 56 is about the right age to buy a bike.

So unfortunately I'm out

I know officially your not allowed to transfer entries but if anyone wants an entry and happy to take the risk let me know.

Thanks Scott, went out and did a mile last night first run since middle of November.

No reactions so fingers crossed as I build it up again, it always surprises me just how much fitness you lose but your brain still thinks you can run the same as before the injury

Did my first (only) marathon in May. Spent the summer training my wife for her first GSR, then entered this about 6 weeks ago, then twisted my knee the very next day so haven't run since.

Hope to get back out this weekend. Was originally aiming for a PB (which isn't that fast at 2:05) but may have lost too much over the summer with this latest lay off, so maybe just get around and enjoy it, have to see how training goes in next few week.

This is probably the crunch for me if the body breaks down again this time, then I think it will be time to gracefully accept I'm getting on and buy a bike

Jonnie, you'll never find a flatter course it's dead flat

I'm running my third time in order to encourage my wife who's doing this as her first big run.

Two pieces of advice 1) don't forget to enjoy it the crowds are amazing & 2) save some engery for the last two miles if it's windy (it normally is) the last two miles are straight into the wind (but the course is dead flat so that a bonus)

All of the above but mainly miserable runners (it's nearly always the ones with headphones on but that's another topic)

Anyone got any comments on this, ratings seem ok to good.

Just completed my first marathon in Geneva last weekend and whilst glad I've done one think I'll drop back to Half's as a more enjoyable race .

So planning to take May off then look at an autumn half and this seems to fit, anyone else entering , also does it sell out?

Well done Steve 1:46 is a pretty good time (about 20 mins better than my PB), if you can put the training in go for the big one next year.

Have to say it's hell (and I won't be doing another) but the sense of achievement at the end just can't be described.
