Been stuffing my face all day in preparation for this :lol: done quite a few marathons but I think this is going to be the hardest by far :shock: doesn't help that its 28.2 miles :lol:

The course is on my doorstep so I train on lots of it and I've done a few 23 mile loops on most of the course, so I'm hoping the fact I know what a b*stard of a course it is gives me some advantage at least :D

Just crossing my fingers with the weather :) lets hope its as nice as the weather they had last year 8) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0Sj4KIpyUg

You're Effin mad, but good luck!

I miss running. Pull on a pair of shoes and off you go. No fiddlin or fettlin, pumping or oiling...
Just a cool breeze through your tackle...

Amazing, well done!!! What were your times? Are you planning on doing any more of the CTS runs? I'm doing a few of the halfs in the coming months.

Awesome result! Never mind winning your age group (great job) but 7th overall really isn't bad for an old codger :wink:
