We are a group of runners with a wide range of both ability and experience, who get together on Saturday mornings (usually Beckenham Junction station) to run.

If you want to join us, all you have to do is turn up. Keep an eye on this thread for where our next meet will be. Or mail me for details.

So, the first May run will be tomorrow - 3 May - 8.30am at Beckenham Junction station for five miles(ish).

Happy running.

Donna - Jules has had to drop out of tomorrow's run.

Are you OK still to meet up at 7.45 a.m. at the golf club to run to Beck?

Sorry about tomorrow chaps. I will be thinking of you, enviously!

Will anyone be at Beckenham Junction at 8:30 tomorrow morning?

Yes Fliss, we will meet you there.

Snoops, David's plans have changed and he hasn't gone today. She is a bit better and so he is going tomorrow after lunch, so I will see you at 7.45 as planned.

Yipppee...see you all then!

Snoops are you up yet?

I at least know from the mobiles that you made it to back to Petts Wood, was the timely mobile call a help?

Tex Mex at Burger King was ok but would have preferred a Chineese, have to leave the pub earlier next time.

Have a good run this morning.

Seyhoos treat him gently!

Thanks for the run today everyone. I enjoyed it.

Snoops, I can't find the thread we were discussing. Can you email me where to find it?

JJ - I can't for the life of me remember what thread we were talking about. :0(

Ne'er mind. Looking OK for tomorrow.

Good Luck everyone for your races today!

Let us know how you do.

Sadly didn't run. Upset tummy. Tooooooo risky to be out and about and away from the loo. Shame though 'cos the weather is lovely and I am sure would have been a nice outing.

Hope you had a good time Snoops.

Sorry you couldn't make it Jules. Hope you're feeling better now.

I ran the Hildenboro 10 with Donna (who won a medal for being second senior lady home!!).

Nice run in pleasant countryside.

How did the other BJ's racing today get on?

Snoops, I am a bit better. Finally managed to keep some food down this afternoon and had a snooze too! Glad you enjoyed it. Well done Donna. I can't belive she is a senior!

Hope everyone else had a good time.

JJ - a senior is anyone over 18 and under 35 (ladies), or 40 (men), after which you become a veteran.

Glad you're feeling better now.

Well done Donna!
The Ted Pepper 10K was hard work. Laps are definitely dull, particularly when the fast finishers end their 3rd as I was about to start my 3rd. I'm still waiting for an official time.

I had a fairly disastrous Ted Pepper 10k - walked far too often. I think I was third from last with a worse time for 10k than Woking (only 5 weeks ago) which had hills and was hotter.

Decided I am not too keen on laps - ran past my parked car three times - was seriously tempted to get into it and go home the second time I went past it. Had it not been for Meg also being in the race, I might well have done!!

Will have to up my training - a half marathon seems no nearer my ability now than four months ago.

Big congratulations to Donna - fantastic.

Well Done Meg,Jo,Donna and Snoops!

Don't be disheartened Jo! I actually came last in a 10K which had 3 laps - I think it's something psychological about having to run round in circles you sort of lose the will to run especially when you get lapped or see the people walking home whilst you're still going!!!!!

By the way,I just looked in my training log from when I first came along to the Beckenham group and we did 4.5 miles in 1hr 6 mins! Now we can do a 10K in less than that so you're definitely closer to that 1/2 marathon goal.

Well done Donna (I feel rather aggrieved at being 24 and classed as a senior)!
