Phoned ACW organiser this afternoon to check on the update of the race in light of the rain and severe weather warnings country-wide. He told me that there were no plans to cancel the race, so looks like a wet weekend's running!!
Received a new pair of Montrail Hardrocks yesterday and am desperately trying to wear them in in the hope I can wear them on Sunday. They felt comfy straight on, but it might be a different matter after 40 miles. Problem is my only other shoes are road shoes! I'll make a decision on Sunday morning.
PS This morning's weight 75.2Kg. Amazing how much it changes!
