Once again - thanks for all that and Fido2Dogs - just saw your post with all the great info re woman travelling alone. Many thanks for that...great stuff.
I have started loooking at flights.....mad really but I just know that once something like this has even entered my brain, I am going to go all out to do it. My other half said the same at the weekend and he has even offered to 'sub' me the money to get out there and do it - even offered to pack !! Hmm, wonder if he is trying to tell me something.
Apart from on here, it will not be something I will tell anyone about until next April....that will be a right big old challenge in itself !! I was accused yesterday of just 'tripping' out the marathons like it was no bother and should do something else instead such as an Ironman or tri. What a sauce....running marathons is BLOODY hard !! However, I refrained from blurting out my new crazy idea so all good so far.
I am going to keep plodding and racking up marathons - leggies and bits allowing - but will now be using them as training runs.
I am doing Thames Meander in two weeks, New Forest, Abingdon, Beachy Head, possibly A20 Track, maybe Bacchaus and then to round off the year - all being well - Portsmouth Coastal which I have done for the past two years....but hey...all training runs now so have taken on a whole new dimension.
