Friday (today) - drove over to Pete's place in East Vic Park for a 6.30am start. We headed from his house down to Burswood and then around the Bridges. Pete thinks it is around 16km. We ran a nice conversational pace which worked out to somewhere around 4.55 -5min/km pace. Really enjoyable run although we did have a bit of wind in our face running towards the Narrows. Put some vaseline on my big blister and covered it with some fabric elastoplast. Big improvement, still could feel it slightly but don't think it impacted on my running at all and with another couple of days until Darlington, I don't think it will be a problem on Sunday.
The BAA and AT&T have set up a system where you can register to receive email updates of how individual runners are going during the race. Alerts will be broadcast from the 10-kilometer, 1/2 marathon and 30-kilometer marks and the finish as the runner passes those locations.
How to register is outlined on this web page:
Also the B.A.A. will broadcast every 5Km split to its web site and family and friends can track your progress by logging in and entering your name or bib number. The Boston Marathon web site will change on race day and the process on how to enter the search will be clear.
