Gave up on posting way back as life just got too busy - but - thanks to Chozza earlier in the year took his place for my first SNOD and - no surprise - absolutely loved it - my best race and marathon by far - fabulous day. My slowest too because I was so terrified of detonating around mile 20/22 I set out slow and steady and the strategy worked as I found it fine - lovely last mile as had so much left in my legs and felt so good afterwards I know I can give it much more next year.
Have already booked the B&B and tried to convince anyone at my running club who will listen to do it. Thank you all for your advice way back - I can see why everyone is so obsessed with this event and just can't imagine doing a city marathon again. Am hoping to do the Dartmoor Discovery Ultra in June as feel invincible now and to keep me going until my second go at that last hill next October!
