I think I may be a little obsessed. I’m eating, sleeping and talking Madrid ALL THE TIME. I’m pretty sure that everyone is fed up of it, and we haven’t even been yet! 😮
The taper is under way, as is some early carb loading (any excuse!) as @TheWelshWookie and I had dinner at our favourite cafe tonight. Yum!
I’ve been scouring my Madrid travel guide, highlighting places I want to visit, and working out the closest metro stops that we will be using. I’m also just about packed, too 😉
I’ve checked and rechecked my race day gear, and it’s all ready to go. I’ll be packing my trainers in my hand luggage……. just in case!
Saturday morning cannot come quickly enough…
Does anyone have any tips on places to visit, or any favourite restaurants and bars that we shouldn’t miss?

Thanks, Kristin! 🙂
Have you run the marathon yet in your sleep, I do that for the week before a marathon and arrive exhausted. Good luck, enjoy the taper and the carb loading that really is the best bit!
Ha, yes- I’ve run it several times in my dreams! Glad I’m not the only one!
Hubby moans! Very excited for you !
So exciting and I know exactly what you mean about being obsessed – I get the same about Paris!
I’m afraid I’ve never been to Madrid so I’ve no sightseeing tips for you, all I can say is relax, enjoy the race and have a brilliant “runneymoon” 🙂
Thanks, Allison! You know how it is! 😉
Sadly, I haven’t been to Madrid, but I know you’ll have an amazing time!
I will, and thanks for the tip about packing trainers in hand luggage! 🙂
How exciting! I know I ate really well everywhere in Madrid (and Spain). You guys will have such a great time – I’m mucho jealous.
I think the only words I can offer are “Squeeee” it is just that exciting. Good luck & have fun
Thanks! I can’t wait! 🙂
Can’t wait for Madrid. Good idea of trainers in hand luggage, I just bought some new ones today 😉 Ro
Fantastic! I’m sure you’re as excited as I am! 🙂
I’ll be thinking of you while I”m running my Rock ‘n Roll half marathon in Nashville on Saturday morning. 🙂
Enjoy your run, Tom: I hope it goes well for you! 😉
