That's what I've done. Italian races also require a med cert or a "licence". My EA membership card is the licence apparently but I've used one of my med cert copies to make me a cert for Florence. Might as well just in case there's any gip at the expo.

Yes O! Deffo, although to be fair I did 3 hours beer quaffing at both the last 2, but this time I'm staying until someone carries me out.

Welcome Smudger, PJ and all the newbies.

Reminder to all, to print off your med cert from the Paris Marathon Website, fill it in and get it signed and stamped (very important) by your GP.

I just got mine done (for free-result-some GPs charge).

Eurostar is booked so just need to get the Accommodation sorted. Leaving the family at home this time so looking for a party apartment option or room share with running pals who are also in the race.

Well been awhile since I popped in - I'm waving frantically at you all ??????????.   

i was wondering if anyone else is still waiting for their reject notifications for VLM?  I've still heard nothing, nil, zilch not even charities contacting me ........ 

is it something I said !

Call 'em up Pri-Fi .....

It's taper week for me ..... got maximum 35 miles scattered throughout the week. Just gave myself a bit of punishment after a weekend of Belgium Chocolate and drinking beers with lots of people from this thread at The Wedding of the Year. 7.5 miles kind of tempo run, bit slippy underfoot, dodging peds, bikes, cars, school kids, leaves, dust-trucks, took in a fair bit of Hampstead Heath as well. Need to punish myself a bit more this week, particularly on pace, I've been a bit lazy with it recently.

Boston Marathon 2016 Registration

Good for you Nicole ..... you are a Boston Qualifier and you're not letting the cut off stand in the way of your plans. You'll have a great time over there. The locals make you feel very welcome. It's a great vibe at marathon weekend.

Good call for training on those hills, especially the downhills. Despite running my best ever run this year, I was hurting after about an hour. My quads were trashed. I have to say Boston could be considered a fast course but also quite challenging. I've never felt so sore after a race in the first 24 hours.

Welcome Kenny. Hop on aboard the awesome Paris express. Don't delay it will sell out soon. Don't think twice just do it. It's awesome big city marathon and there's pb opportunity. Btw nice 3.07 at Berlin, clearly you'll beat that with a clean run closing in on a sub3 surely. Make sure you put yourself in the red pen.

List Fairy please put me in for London Baby!
