I've visited Pennys and got gloves, hate and long sleeved t-shirt for 9 euro. They will kept me warm for the first few miles and then they'll be discarded.

Weather sounds it will be like Cork to Cobh a few weeks back - bloody cold at the start but once you're moving, you'll warm up. The sunshine helps too so don't over dress as when you get to the second half of the race, you will be over heating.

Spotted a few Boardsies at the expo yesterday and actually got them to stand still long enough for a photograph... Not going to name anyone though, you'll all have to come to the pub to find out who's who.

Why do they enter everyone with an address in Ireland as being Irish? I'm sure there was no other option on the entry form.

I guess I've just been assimilated. Resistance is futile.

What are people wearing tomorrow? I don't want to overdress, but I'm thinking singlet might be too cold given the temperature tomorrow. Might go with a short sleeve running top with a long sleeve over it that I can ditch a few miles in.

I'm sticking with the singlet, but wearing a sweatshirt and tracksuit bottoms to the start line.

I'm wearing the Boards AC singlet with a pair of gloves for the first few miles to keep the hands warm.

I only recognise one person in that photo. Will have to meet some more of you. Which pub are people going to?

Good luck everyone! Have a great race.

Just been shopping and got some extra layers ready for tomorrow. Tshirt, hat, gloves, bin bag all ready to be discarded at some point along the way leaving me with just the BAC singlet and shorts by the finish.
