Nah, wont have too much time to train so 10 miles would be more than enough for me. Good thing it would be a guaranteed PB if I fullfilled :D.

Woohoo! :D Sounds like fun. Actually, sounds painful but it might be fun once the painful bit is over!

Is there a time limit on the course? Like its going to take me 2 hours or something - and because numbers are limited I imagine there will be alot of club runners there.

It starts from a small village about 10 miles from where I live.

People who have run it before rate it very highly

You can get a train from London to reading, which is how I will be going: we can syncrenise and travel together if you wish.

Hey all! I like the sound of this. I am going in for the Paris Marathon (I hope) on Séamus' tenth birthday, so I could use this for practise...

What is the route like? Hilly or what?

Paris Marathon is the ninth of April, on my son's tenth birthday, so I have decided to celebrate by running 42 km! :lol:

The theory being that no marathon could be as hard as 36 hours labour, so if I feel like slackening I can remember how strong I was ten years earlier, and what good came out of it - so I will actually finish! And while it could never be as rewarding as the arrival of the famous Séamus, it seems a nice (and rather unusual) gift to try and give him - his first trip to France (he speaks French, and loves reading about its history) and proof that even old fogies like his mum can be healthy. I don't want him to feel he has to do anything in life that I do, but I do want him to learn that you can stay fit and active, and proud of what your body can do, so that when he is an adult he has good habits, not bad ones. And of course that would be proof that vegans, mum and child, are fit and healthy, so another reason to do it.

He seems to have good habits now, but he needs to keep them for a life time. Hence his unusual birthday present (which is also Neil and my honey moon...)

guess a 20 mile 1,,5 months before is a good preparation to see if you are ready for the big 42.195 meters

would be cool if we could start with 15 vegan runners. this way lots off people will see us...
