Having done FLM in 2005 and will be doing Cardiff in Oct2005, I want to aim for a spring 2006 marathon.
FLM was a deferral from 2004 and although I wasn't prepared I just *had* to do it else lose my place. Now that I'm back into running, Cardiff is for progression and enjoyment.
I didn't want to endure the FLM ballot, didn't fancy yet another big city mara like Paris, so I've settled for Rotterdam. The date, availability of hotels, travel (train, ferry, flights), agreement from the rest of the nrg-b clan makes this highly attractive. Given that people have stated it is a fast flat course with which I can target my sub3 dream makes Rotterdam the best choice.
According to the Rotterdam Website
registrations open in Oct2005.
Anyone else doing this?
