String - have a look at the Abingdon thread to find out more - seems to be a bit of a Fetch cult!!!

Ah - well I think Beachy Head will prove a bit more challenging from what I've heard!

Good to see you PB. That gel was the best I have tested so far.... like a squirt of fudge in my mouth :-)
Where can I get some from??? Hope the knee settles... to be fair mine ache too it's those silly hills. I think I will stick to a flatter course for my training runs.
No blisters with my new shoes :-) :-) ;-)

which gel was that PB? I had a 17 miler today - went well, but I think I haven't quite sorted out my carb intake yet, only took one gel halfway through and felt empty in the last 2 miles or so. Trying go gels - they aren't nice, but seem to work...

PB, hope your tummy clears up soon.

All this talk of the next marathon is scary though! think i'll get FLM out the way first...

how's everyone's fund raising going?

Hey all.

Another 20 miler under my belt - felt much better on this run, but was 3 minutes slower - but feel great about the distance now!!
