It won't make me an honorary Kenyan, but it does give me the feeling that I can complete the marathon in three weeks barring horrible conditions.

Wow, nice work. I got lost on a 17 miler in Bangor while training for the San Antonio Marathon in 2004, and I wound up running about 28 miles. That was pretty rough.
I am in a similar boat as you right now. I ran a 50k about a month ago, so I feel pretty confident about the Marine Corps Marathon in 2 weeks. I considered running Manchester the week after MCM, but decided that the trail race 7 weeks early was probably in my better interest. Had I known about Manchester before I registered for Marine Corps, I would have chosen to run that.
Sounds like you're ready to go for your marathon! Congrats, and good luck on the big day! There should be no doubt now that you can do this, right?
