    I've just entered the Brighton Marathon next year (2013)

    I'm very nervous. I've done half marathons but a marathon is a completely different kettle of fish

    SCARED!

    Thanks everyone

    Training umm I don't know yet. Any tips anyone? Would be very much appreciated.

    I've searched on the internet and there is sooooooo much info about how the best way to train is I just don't know where to begin. Fitting training in with work and study will be difficult as well but running a marathon is one of those things that I have always wanted to do 'one day'....cliche I know....I want to make 'one day' today haha.

    Anyone with experience please post your advice.

    I might start a blog, doubt anyone would read it though lol, but it sounds like a good idea

    A lot of us find the blogs keep us motivated - telling people something good that you've done feels great, having to admit to being lazy isn't Although followers can be pretty good pick-me-ups! I'll follow you and I'm sure other will.

    Why don't you have a look through the blogs and see if anyone is working towards similar goals? You could follow them and maybe discuss the progress

    All I can say about fitting things in, is to schedule everything. If I don't plan to do something, I find it very hard to make time for it. But if I plan the best way to fit everything in, it seems to work easily and you feel like you have more time to get organized.

    Anyway, I've never done anything like this so couldn't possibly advise you. But you sound excited so I'm sure you'll keep focus. Best of luck, feel free to direct us to your blog if you make one!

    before you do the marathon make sure you can do at least 20 miles

    trust me on the day when everyone is running and crowds cheering you feel like you could run 50 miles so the last 6 miles should be easy enough

    LIVE LONG AND PROSPER

    peace

    Nah, I'm kidding. Well done for signing up and I wish to all the best with your training - why not keep a marathon training log up here so we can see how you are getting on?

    Any charity you are running for?

    What did you do to enter? As in can you sign up as a personal runner and go around houses collecting money (for a charity of your choice), or do you have to be registered/sponsored by a charity to do the collecting and hence running?

    I looked on their website and they have 'early bird' registration i.e. a limited number of first come first serve places so I thought I'd sign up.

    I may raise money for charity, it would be nice to and if you have your own place you can raise as little or as much as you like.

    I think it's becoming quite a popular marathon so maybe in the future it will just go straight to ballot. Hopefully not though, I hate ballots lol.
