Bernard - don't worry about the time, just enjoy the experience.

Good luck

I think you are all...........

Thanks Sassei. Like I said to one of my club's beginners this morning, anyone can run a marathon if they've got the time and inclination to do the training.

Six miles is a much more sensible distance though :)

Is any one thinking about another marathon yet?

I'm planning a trip to New Zealand in Oct/Nov which just happens to coincide with the Auckland Marathon.

Only thing that puts me off slightly is training through the summer - I don't run well when it's hot - and a 6.30 race start!

Can't remember what finish time I put on my entry form but expect to be in either 8 or 9.

ps - if you trawl back far enough, you should be able to find last year's Windsor thread.

Loads of us did this last year. It's a nice course with lots of undulating bits; last year it was very warm and they ran out of water at the last water station at least.

I also noticed the finish getting further away as I ran down the hill towards it.

Interested to read your report ORR. Sounds like you had a food run even if the organisation was a bit chaotic. Didn't think about the terrain when I posted about the course before.

Like I said before, I'll be keeping an eye out for this one next year and will do some ankle strengthening exercises beforehand!

HELP! I'm desperate.....

How did it go Topps?

For what it's worth, I started out with trainers 1/2 size bigger than normal shoe size and thought they were fine except that on longer runs (over 10m) I found the tips of my toes were getting a bit sore. Bought the same make in a full size bigger and though they felt huge to start with, I played with the lacing a bit and now they feel fine and I no longer have rubbed toes.
