Not quite the same but I’ve just paid 1500 Yen to run a virtual half for the chance to be in the draw for a Tokyo place. Odds of around 1 in 30 I understand. (Not sure of the odds of being able to get there mind). Probably a better money spinner than NY.

Vienna has recently announced its date as the 23rd April next year. Conveniently, the day before the EGU General Assembly that I regularly attend (science conference). It's just one week after Manchester and I'll definitely not be doing two full marathons a week apart but might be tempted by the half in Vienna, which is run simultaneously with the marathon (basically the first lap of a two-lap course). A fast flat course with a strong field if I'm adequately recovered...what are the chances?

Got something to say?
