    I'm thinking of entering the Bupa London 10000 which takes place May 2009. I managed to do the Race for Life in June of this year which was a much much shorter distance. This Bupa race looks a bit high profile as they are talking about running athletes who enter. Has anyone else ever done it or is anyone thinking of entering? I would not be able to run all of the way and would expect to walk some of it (I had spinal surgery a few years ago and have metal rods and screws in my back so I am not able to pound for very long). Opinions please should I give it a go, I want to do something for Cancer research as my Uncle is very ill with bone cancer. What do you think fellow CDers. :eek:

    I'm just worried that they will still be waiting for me to finish long after everyone else.

    Well done Rachel, for doing the Marathon this year and again next. Did you run all the way? Did you feel intimidated by the faster runners? I really enjoy walking but have not started doing much running yet. I will be 56 next birthday with is mid May and I'm worried it will be too much for me.

    I think whether it takes you 4 days( it wont) its the achievement of finishing and I would admire anyone who does that and I hope I'm as determined as you at 56 ;) go on you know you want to!
