I've not done a marathon yet, although I've been running for about 3 years now and have done a few 10ks, 10 miles, a half and another half in a few weeks. I *was* thinking that I would put off doing a full mara for another year until my smallest child starts school as I struggle to fit in the juggle of work, running, spending enough time with kids etc. etc. On the one hand I figure I'll be needing to take four hours our of one weekend day for a good few months. Precious time with my kids, especially the 3 year old. But if truth be known, am itching to push myself a bit further, and I keep on coming across the new Milton Keynes mara. Is anyone doing this? Is it a decent course? What to do??
