Well the weather could not be better for Sunday (not!). But I am still planning to run the marathon on Sunday regardless – starting on Torquay seafront at 7am!!! My hope is that the rain will help to cool me down over the 26.2 miles!

Just another quick plug for my JustGiving page; whilst your sat having a cuppa on Sunday a few quid sent my way would really mean a lot.

Also anyone who is interested in tracking how I run, whether I’ve been washed away, I have attached the route plan along with rough times of when I am expecting to be at certain spots. Those who are super keen, if you download the London Marathon app you can track how far I have ran, my race number is: 36945

Route plan: https://onthegomap.com/s/qif8bpvm Slight change at end, going to run to Aldi and through Exhibition fields and then out by the Arena entrance (as not sure if bridge will be open).

Chudleigh – roughly half marathon:  9am – 9.30am

Countess Weir roundabout – 23miles: 10.30am-11am

Middlemoor roundabout – 25miles: 10.50am – 11.30am

St James School –  11.30 – 12.15pm???

Many thanks,

Mr Gibbs
