Possibly... Cos of the heat, I won't start training again till September, but that's just about enough time, I suppose. Will see what my other half thinks...

Is that the one you were talking about in the "Bugger" thread, Martyn?
Training for a Marathon during the Iberian Summer (at least half of the specific training) can be hard but maybe the 10k?
Will see what my other half thinks...

Yes it is Fulmar. I'm In Alicante city as well. I trained for the Murcia marathon during the summer. It was a case of getting up early and bearing it. It's good training and it hardens you up. Just remember to take water with you.

Bilbao night marathon is good, October and cooler as its run during the..er night!
I ran with a guy (well, an M70) a couple of days ago who told me about his experience in Bilbao. It seems to be a really well-organised and fun event. If I remember correctly there's a Half-Marathon on the day... er night :d as well.

TBH, if we're going to do it, I'd rather do the marathon...

I'll decide after tomorrow's marathon if I will go for another this year or concentrate back on halfs. Was originally thinking of dublin, but never been to Valencia so...
