I'm a first timer too And can't wait!
I got a ballot place
First time at London - Sorry though have done 2 marathons before.
Ballot place and just starting back from injury - taking things very very easy.
VDS- Yes..I know I'm very very lucky to get the ballot place.
I've joined a running club so will be running with them once a week- the rest of my traning will be alone. A friend of mine also got through the ballot although she lives the other side of England so we're keeping each other motivated through texts/ online.
Running 5x a week at present and trying to avoid an injury. Just splashed out on some Winter gear from Aldi and have an early Christmas present in the shape of a 405 Garmin winging it's way to me. Can't wait!
Love running now, my only regret is that i didn't take it up when I was younger (now 38) but then again I don't think I would have had the mental stamina then to run 13- 26 miles.
Kate- who are you running for and what amount do you have to raise?
I got a ballot place, first time I applied as well.Can't say im over excited in all reality either, still more interested in doing tough guy or the snowdonia marathon.
This is my first one! I am running for the Brain Tumour Trust. I found out today and I am absolutely bloody terrified!!! i am really upset that my mate didn't also get a place but she is an angel and is still going to train with me.
I have been running for 4 weeks and I am doing about 10 miles per week at the moment, I am not going to put the pressure of a time on myself. I just want to get round and raise my money for a fab charity!
How many times a week are you planning to run? I am getting a bit stressed about fitting them all in. I am a single mum who works full time and with some careful planning I can get 2/3 short ones and a long one on a Sunday. Do you reckon that is enough?
