On the morning of my marathons, I'd have porridge with syrup, tea with sugar, banana, energy bar, energy drink,
water, some more water, and maybe a bit more, and so on. This, coupled with the excitement and anticpitation, will
have you pissing like a race horse before the race, but do not be alarmed, this is normal.

Thanks for the tips, that's pretty much exactly what I'm planning to have :-) I've got my sports drink sorted too, been out running with it too. The toilet issue is bugging me loads though!

Just wear brown stripy shorts, piece of piss. Or, dont take a dog with you, then you will definitely not want to curl one down at the furthest point away from your home.

Is that you Cally in the selfie type thing?

If so, you look lean, mean and happy.

Give it your best shot and ENJOY it.

I've got the Outlaws visiting for two weeks so might not be around to read your timings,

but don't worry, you do your bit and, I'll do mine - eventually. :wink:

I still cannot work out when your run starts as this link is confusing for me:-

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-tyne-34224687

Anyway, perhaps you've already started and finished, but you can only give it your best shot.

Go For It. :wink:

Done and done! I didn't fall on my arse (sorry Rozza) and I finished in just over 3 hours. A fair bit slower than expected, but my legs started to let me down around 10 miles in and had slowed considerably. Never mind, fantastic experience and well worth the effort. Thanks to everyone who have supported me and donated to Bloodwise :-D

Okay Cally, outside of your expected timing, but you did FINISH.

I'm in a charitable mood and will donate 50 Quids, but I ain't doing it tonight as too drunk....

to fook about with debit cards on-line.

Glad you enjoyed it, next year I expect sub 3 hours. :wink:

(for a full marathon). :lol:

Nah, do it tonight, your drunk fingers might press the 0 twice ;-) Seriously though, that's really kind of you and will put me within touching distance of £700, thanks so much :-)

And sub 3 hours is definitely achievable in the future :-)

Well, donated as promised, but haven't had the confirmation email yet. :(

Now, if some kind soul could find a fiver then you've topped the £700 mark.

Currently - Raised: £696.67

For every upside, there is a downside.
