Brighton Marathon 2015

Well done everyone, some great results for all different reasons. I had an ok run the weather and bad cramp caught me out. Got back in 3:43 which is my 3rd fastest marathon so should be pleased. This will be my last BM as there are quite a few more I want to try. I'm doing Dublin in October and then going to sign up this week for Paris next April.
I'm going to keep reading all the great posts over the next few days. Once again well done everyone

Hi guys, thanks for comment/suggestion i have taken your advice on board and am not going to defer my place. I did nothing yesterday and had a little to eat later on. Went back to work today for a few hours and have managed to eat/drink with no ill effects. I then went for a very easy run tonight (4m) legs felt great, however stomach still tender. I am determined to run this race as it is 1 of my favourite marathons and have trained hard for it. No run for me tomorrow last day at work before heading to Brighton on Friday. Going to do 1 more easy run fri AM and then enjoy weekend. Thanks again for your comments, I hope you all have a great run,

Hi to you all, I have posted on here for ages but have been reading almost every day. Some reall i trending posts with some great tips/help.
I have trained really well and was looking forward to Sunday until last night whe I was sick and think I have 1 of these 24/48 bugs that are going around. I now feel terrible just taking paracetamol and drinking water with little food.
Question is do I pull out and defer place- has this happened to any one else before this near to race. Can't believe how bad luck this is as I was feeling reall positive about race. Panic is setting in was meant to go out for easy run tonight. I don't think I could run 1 mile. Have been reading Brighton details trying to get my mind posative. Has any one had these bugs before do they go as quick as it hit me?
Thanks in advance fellow BM runners

Great sat AM run 8.5 m at 8:45 pace. Felt so comfortable really happy with running at moment. Summer break has definitely helped. Off to work soon on the late shift, I will b buzzing whilst everyone else will b miserable. The joys of being a runner

Hi all, great to read comments. Toby 3 I know what u mean about lost mo Jo. I had a great spring and completed an ultra beg of summer. Then had a lazy summer with max 2 runs per week and max length 6m. However got right back into it sept and now feel in great shape. Running 3times a week and gym min 2 times a week. Really mixing it up from bike at gym (spinning classes and bike on my own for hill training) to 6m runs easy/hard and LSR at weekends. May be an easy summer is what was needed. Really looking forward to Brighton next yr as I'm planning on celebrating my 50th yr by entering HM and marathons that I have not done before except my favourite which is Brighton (my 4th time)
I'm also hoping for 3:30 (prev best 3:33) if all goes ok.
Tillstar good luck with job hunting does it mean u have lots of spare time at moment for running?
Keep up the posts very motivated by them.
I have got Stevenage HM nov2nd not the most scenic however trying to fit in a HM race every month to see how MP is.
Happy running

Comrades 2015

Thanks running rodent for letting me know about this site.

Im wanting to do this and was thinking as it will be my first comrades I should do it all through a sports tour company. I know this might b more expensive however all is done for you. Or do u think it is easy enough to do by myself. I dont have a clue about which hotel (are there ones near expo/start) and what flights are needed. I need to do a lot of research. What is qualifying time and how do u show u have done it.

I look forward to reading all posts and catching up with you all.
