Great stuff Al, I enjoyed Bristol last year although the end was a bit twisty for my liking.

Also my Mum has pointed out that only the additional stations are cups. My brother ran last year and said there were bottles. The pdf states http://www.bmw-berlin-marathon.com/m/en/race-week/runners-info.html don't throw cups and bottles so it is a bit ambiguous. Anyone got any gen on this?

Spirun apparently the technique is to form a V by pinch... oh who am I kidding?! Yes it's tough but quite glad I didn't take much water on training runs (1 x 175ml bottle) but...

I haven't tried the gels are they okay (watery or dense - or v. sweet) does anyone know?  I will be taking 3 x SIS as they are so easy to take and don't need water but I will take 1 at start, 10k and 20k leaving the rest all to play for.  My personal lesson from Washington last year was take gels! I couldn't face a big Zipvit Bakewell Tart gel with 50g carbs at 15 mile (Sticky, dry tasting and the taste is horrendously sickly) and I proper turbo bonked at 19 miles.

But you will know you're not drinking alcohol so surely that will mean that you can fight off its effects?  

I got a case today from the nice people at Erdinger in return for a race report from Berlin.  That said I did plan my trains and flights to maximise post race fun!

I missed the first ballot but they do a second chance ballot for slots not taken up by first ballot.  I am number 21414 and guess I will be in pen 1B (2:40-2:50).

PP/Lev sounds good.  I will be up for that before flying out.  Goal is 2:45 so hopefully wont be too far behind!

I think some of this isn't new and rightly given that they'll follow traditional thinking so the results will fit current plans.
