Hi Everyone :)
Massive congratulations to everyone who did the London marathon. What an amazing day!
I just wondered if anyone here has done or is doing the Edinburgh marathon? I was wondering what its like, the good bits and not so good bits, the hard and the really hard parts.
I've read on the website that you're not allowed your mp3 player and although I don't generally run with music i thought i might take it to boost me through the reeeally tough bits.
Anyway any tips or advice anyone can give me is very very much appreciated :)
The out and back nature of the Edinburgh marathon means it could be more interesting, that said, you get some gorgeous coastal scenery. Once you're out of Edinburgh its really flat until a little bit of a hill near the turnaround point. Take your sun lotion with you, if its a sunny day, there is nowhere to hide. I enjoyed it though, and would certainly consider doing it again.
