    That's your race? You ought to do well---it's a fast course isn't it?

    It is considered a fast course - it's very very flat. I think there's only one real hill on the whole thing (of course at the very end).

    Thanks!

    Not this year. I have to conquer the 5K/10K hurdle. Then think about running a half-marathon.

    It is fast if you get out front. There are so many runners that it bottlenecks in corners. So you will be running then forced into a walk. I ran it back in 2000, and it was my first. It was a good for my first one, but I prefer marathons that limit the field.

    Good luck and run happy

    Thanks UKRugby - hopefully those bottlenecks will help me slow myself down so i don't burn out early.

    And Zox, looks to me like you're already ahead of the game with 5/10Ks. Or are you trying to make me feel bad about being a plodder? icon_wink.gif

    No I just am basing it on my former college teammates. One of them just missed making the marathon team at the Olympics by a place or two.

    I'm hoping 10.10.10 will finally be my lucky number.
