16 weeks to Edinbur...

In 16 weeks time I shall be boarding a train towards the great city of Edinburgh.Have been running for a couple of years now and am beginning to see some steady improvements.Ran Robin hood marathon in 08 which was fun.Ran FLM last year,after getting in through the ballot which was a good day out.Didn't get in this year so am off to Scotland.Was a bit worried it may be a bit hot for a marathon at the end of May but am reliable informed it only gets hot for 10 minutes in August up there.Hope you don't mind me coming on the VLM page but I had a look on the other marathon pages and it doesn't get many visitors.Have been reading the blogs for a while now and thought it is time I started my own, follow the ups and downs towards a hard but realistic goal........................
