Thanks for that also!
I wont be running in a ted costume, I would be a rather tall bear at 6 ft 4 " !
Think I will keep it as minimilist as the weather allows on the day. The marathon is daunting enough without lugging a bear around!! Thas not to say its an achievment running in a costume (we have a tough off road local new yrs race here - the Huncote Hash with a regular gorilla running every year!)
Camelbak arrived today, I'm very impressed. Just need to fill her up & do some gentle taper runs to get used to. Think key to it is liberal barrier cream on anywhere the rucksack contacts the skin!
