Welcome to the forum. There's loads of good advice on here, and quite a few laughs as well. I'm still new to running, and my ambition is to run a half marathon by next summer. But I don't think I'll ever do anything other than admire the marathon runners. Which races have you been doing, and which ones are you still planning on completing this year?
Provided you've done requisite training of course!
Sounds as if you're a marathon junkie!
I did Keswick 1/2m this year.....lots of ups in that but the downs made up for those! I imagine Langdale marathon is similar..just twice the distance. :d
