I think I just got carried away in the euphoria on Facebook, with many of my club mates entering this, and some of those being my closer friends in the club. Some people think that I have taken on too much, however there are some very experienced friends/runners who think that this is doable, if I rest for a few days after Manchester and then just do a couple of short runs in between, they think I should be OK. But I may end up doing a combination of walking and running from 15 miles, which is fine by me.
The route has finally been announced and to be honest, it brings no surprises as the course had already been described as flat and fast, so that had to take in the wetlands. Personally I would have preferred to have seen a route that began in Newport and ran out to Cardiff before heading back to Newport on a out & back or loop route. But I think this route has been devised and designed this way as it means there would be very few road closures.
