Race Registration. Today (Wednesday) I left my hotel in downtown Athens to check into the race hotel [Hotel London] on the seafront at Glyfada.
Arriving just before the scheduled check in time I managed to miss the long queue that formed less than an hour later. Check in was very straight forward and they went through the usual checking of documents and double checking the medical forms.
Went for a short run with Jarlath along the seafront and then the rest of the evening was spent sorting the drop bags which must be handed in today (Thursday) by 4pm. I was hoping we could hand over the drop bags on race day because drinks might spoil in that intense heat.
