Running a marathon with plantar fasciitis

Sorry I didn't reply - the answer was I did cut my pace because it was boiling hot, but I guess it's a bit late now !
How did it go? Did the foot hold up?

Douglas Maus! Welcome back - nice to see you have a friend
I survived Loch Ness - it was tough, but I gritted my teeth and kept going, struggled on through thick and thin. That was the 10k - I believe some nutters were running a marathon too

Marie - it does have to be the exact certificate on the Paris website. Some doctors will do it for free, especially if you're running for charity, or for a charge of about £20-30. It doesn't have to be your GP though, so if you know of any friendly doctors...

It is possible to run a marathon with pf. Can you get the physio to tape it up for you, even if that's a few days in advance? Definitely worth having the tape in place as much as you can between now and the race.

I ran the Paris marathon with pf - stood on the start line with a metro ticket in my pocket and promised myself I'd pull out if it got too bad. Up till about half way it was sore, but not impossible, then after that everything else started to hurt too so I stopped noticing it. I got to the finish I and I don't think it did any lasting damage.

So, all packed and ready to head up to Loch Ness. Although clearly I didn't need to bother packing any pants for Sunday .

I can't believe I've arrived late to a conversation about pants . Although I notice the gents aren't contributing much to the discussion?
Commando makes me nervous. I like a bit of extra coverage.

Emmy - along the coastal path from Newhaven to Brighton. It wasn't a race though, just a run with friends.

Some great runs yesterday - especially Matty - that's amazing
Slowly getting back up to speed here - hilly trail run for me on the South coast yesterday, in brilliant sunshine. Feels good to be back, but the speed definitely isn't there yet.

Bambi - I had a pair of Bondi B's but  I had to send them back after 6 weeks because the uppers started to disintegrate (faulty batch apparently). I replaced them with Bondi 3's, which I wore straight out of the box for a 30 miler. I wouldn't recommend that, but I got away with it. They are very comfy. Although they aren't as heavy as you might expect for so much cushioning, I fancy trying the Cliftons because they're supposed to be significantly lighter.

Yes, they are amusing to look at, but the great benefit is you can run straight through puddles without getting your feet wet because they're above the water .

Is that a ladies size 8? I'd like to try these (I have other Hokas) but I can't find the ladies ones in the UK bigger than a 7. Where did you get them from? I could buy the men's but I'm not so keen on the colours.
