    No, and I knew it was a risk so that tempered my disappointment.

    Fantastic read Sandwell, congrats on a superb performance. I've taken a lot of inspiration from that.

    Shameless plug alert.

    If anyone is interested and feels they may benefit from the post marathon guidance and training plans, do head over to the new 2022 Graduates thread. Title says DCM but it's open to anyone and everyone to join in.

    I have just signed up for Amsterdam, any recommendations for hotels and travelling tips are appreciated.

    Hotels aplenty. Start, finish and expo very close to a train station which is straight from schipol Airport.

    Try book early close to the stadium. And on the day get Into stadium early

    Anywhere near the Vondelpark is a good option. It's close enough to the stadium and it's a nice place to go for a shakeout run the day before. Good connections to the city center from all sides too. Public transport in Amsterdam is exceptionally good so you'll have no problem getting to and from the event no matter where you stay.

    I stayed in the best western this year, decent price and food. Rooms need a little modernization but fine.

    About 2.4k from the Olympic stadium. Straightforward getting to expo and start line, I walked on the morning.

    There's also a supermarket and nice pizza takeaway around the corner.

    I'm in for '23 as well. Hoping the old body holds together for 11 months 🤣

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,204 ✭✭✭ chabsey

    Signed up for round 2 as well, this time I'll take no chances things to try for the first time on the day.
