well done for de-cloaking Chris. There's a good crew of people in here, there's a few crazy people who do ultras (so you'll feel at home) and one bonkers person who does a marathon a week (almost).
With an 8 bib number in Paris you are probably in the yellow zone. From there you should be able to attack your target - there will plenty in there doing the same thing, trying to run the GFA for London & Boston. in an unlikely and annoying scenario where you missed the London QT by a few seconds, you would still have a pretty good chance for the Boston QT which is slightly easier and is not a bad full-back to have to take the pressure off. (cost you a few bob more to do the race mind) So you have options. We have quite a few crew in the yellow zone - i'm actually in Red and based on the race the other day i may well stay there but hoping a couple forumites have a good Paris campaign and bump themselves up to Red at the expo. It's nice to have company in the pens. For me It's all about how the tune up races and tempo runs go come end of Feb / March time. If i'm not hitting the spot, i can always drop back to yellow.
Have you been for a run yet?. I'm having a bit of a turn, needing to stretch my legs, but haven't gone yet. Plus i've had an annoying post-marathon cold. By not running i feel like i am not flushing my system out properly.
