bob, this is the first year in a while where I haven't achieved GFA, both of my attempts were scuppered by high temps (one of them was VLM), so you may have a point about fewer people meeting the criteria this year. Here's hoping.......
Re the male / female split, I believe the term is "positive discrimination" (which is still discrimination). I do recognise though that whether it's fair or not, it's their race and they set the rules, so there's not too much point in getting too wound up about it. I will be annoyed if I don't get in this year due to these changes, but I guess it might just prompt me to head back to Boston, which now has significantly easier qualification times than London.
Me too. See you there G-Dawg.
Hey DT19, that's really good to know. So despite the new rules we may not need to beat the (admittedly more difficult) targets by much after all?
G-Dawg, couldn't agree more. Need a cold day next year, I ran two marathons this year, and melted at both of them. London wasn't a lot of fun.
