A week on Saturday (the 31st Augugst) I will attempt to run my second marathon distance to celebrate my birthday. Thankfully I’m not doing it alone. I have a good number of friends and family joining me for bits of the run (about 20 peeps if all goes well). I’m not sure if I’ll make it. Training has been going well but it’s a tough route including some big and long hills and finishes off with 8 miles of trail. It’s not a race though so I’m planning a slow pace. It should be fun and it’ll definitely finish with a beer. whoop whoop! If things work out well you’ll be able to track our current position on the map below.

You can view the intended route here on garmin connect and the tracking above will be available from about 9am which is when we hope to set off from Dorchester. Hopefully we’ll reach the finish line (The Cove Inn, Portland) at approx 2:15pm. You might need to refresh the page to be able to see updates and be aware at times there may be some lag if I’m out of cell coverage (likely to be on Portland). Links to this page will also be posted to facebook and twitter the morning of the run. The party starts at 2pm at the finish line if you are in the neighbourhood and want to come along.
