I desperately need some words of encouragement as I am running the Paris marathon in less than 2 weeks and am experiencing a lot of self doubt. I have trained hard and am now tapering having done my longest run of 22 miles 2 weeks ago. Last week, I ran another long run of 20 miles but now have the most disgusting blistered toes. I have held off running for the past 3 days to give them a chance to heal. I am nervous that my inactivity will have a knock-on effect.
Additionally, does anyone know if the Paris marathon has loos along the route?
If there is anyone out there running the Paris marathon on 11th April and is in the 'rose' category (4h 30m)perhaps we could hook-up as I am running on my own and could do with the company!
