As I sit here at my desk (!) thinking about Sunday and how great I felt after finishing my first half-marathon, at Silverstone, I am now thinking about my first marathon.
I want to allow plenty of time to up my level from where I am currently to marathon-ready, so I am erring towards the Autumn.
I am someone who has to have soemthing to work / aim towards, I think next Spring is too far away, so I'm thinking this Autumn.
There seem to be a few around Septemeber / October, and my question is can anyone offer any words, etc, about which one would make for a good first marathon.
By good, I mean one that won't scare me off doing a subsequent one, one that people have run and found well organised and efficient, good atmosphere, etc.
I have heard the Chester Marathon is quite good.
