Wooohooo, now a paid up member for 2013.
The training starts now... Ok, maybe in a day or 2 when my feet are up to it.
Have just entered! Will start thinking about training nearer the end of the year - have GNR and Royal Parks HMs before then.
Having done Brighton Last year and again this year was planning on doing something different next year but after the total devestation of having to pull out at mile 12 this year ,I just had to enter it again
feeling a bit more positive now and maybe I should not have tried running when I had a cold all week but I was told that if it is in your head it was okay
I am going to make sure next year that if anyone has a cold they stay away from me
heres to 2013 and a sub 4.30 maybe even faster now I have joined a running club
Trigger2 and Toby3 I did the GnR for the first time last year. It's an amazing experience. You should go along not expecting a PB as it's a truly massive race and can be diffficult to overtake. It's just one huge sea of runners the whole way round. Be prepared for a long slightly uphill incline along the John Reid Road as I noticed that a lot of people started to have their energy zapped by it.
The atmosphere is pretty amazing too. I will be running again this year. Both years I got in via the ballot!
It's good to see that some of us keep coming back for more, 2013 will be my 4th Brighton Marathon so I'm officially and member of the unofficial Ever Present club.
Hah! Can't believe how popular the 2013 thread is already. Congratulations to all those who completed on Sunday. A great achievement and Brighton is a lovely place to run.
Got my deferral code emailed to me this morning, very prompt of the organisers. Haven't signed up yet and have until 15 June to decide one way or another
It was a shame that yesterday's 'grand stand' seating wasn't being used.
What's this about spectator areas/amenities for next year?
I've got an expo code too so I'll register in the next day or so. Hopefully I've managed to convince a few mates to do it as well.
BTW can anyone from Brighton recommend a good running club to join? I've seen there are a few out in the area. I think I may be addicted now.
