Just signed up to run a marathon in Edinburgh chaps
First time for me running this distance, and I was wondering if you have any tips and what to expect on the day. I'm going with a group of 14 people from my university, 6 of which are running the full marathon. We had just had a meeting today to discus the accommodation we will be staying in for 3 nights
I've got a running plan from ASICS
I have also got an app called Strava Run which will record everything from my android phone, such as the distance, time etc and I plan to buy an armband to fit my phone in it. Due to it using the GPS it will chart everything that I need to know and allow me to follow the running plan precisely.
Equipment wise, I've got running shorts and a synthetic material running top. I have proper running socks so I shouldn't get blisters, and some reasonably expensive Adidas running shoes. I'm running on May the 26th
