I was hoping we could start a thread of tips for the 1/2 marathon since many of us have never done a marathon before and don't know what to expect or things needed etc. If you know of something please post it hear and we can all get ready for the big event. Here are a few I have come across... 1. Bring throw away clothes to keep warm prior to the start and then discard them on the side of the road. They will be donated to charity. Or you can use a trash bag. 2. Put something called Glide or vasaline on area that could get blisters or run together to cause irritation.
