I know there are sooo many of these threads....but do the experienced amongst you wear headphones in a marathon race or not?
I've check the event, headphones are allowed ('not recommended'...but not banned). I can appreciate from a safety side of things its good to be aware of whats around you, but I always run with headphones and as live out in the country tend to be used to noticing whats around me (don't listen to the music too loudly, and so notice cars and the odd stray dog!). It doesn't tend to distract me too much from pace either, its more background noise....But would I miss out a lot from the atmosphere? Is it worth having them for when it gets tough (and when the atmosphere gets a bit more muted)?
