I am soo happy, I ran 4.5 miles today in under 45mins, providing i only started running 8 weeks ago and couldn't even run half a mile without collapsing i think this is very good.

I am planning to run the brighton half marathon in feb so it should be no problem.

Any tips though guys???

No tips needed as you're obviously enjoying and are well motivated.

Just had to post to say very well done !

You're a star
Well done, that's a great achievement (I remember how chuffed I felt when I got back to getting under 10 min mile, it feels great doesn't it)

Good luck with Brighton

Sara - brilliant! It seems to be quite a week for beginners! All the very best for the Brighton. Are you doing any races before then?

Would like to do a 10K, but don't know where to find any info about them, i live on border of east london/essex, any one know of any going on?

The only one I've heard of is the Chelmsford 10K on 24 November. There's a thread on it buried a few pages into the Events Forum.

Chelmsford 10k on 24 Nov - see the events forum - seems as if there will be quite a few who will be doing 10k for the first time and vying to be at the back of the pack!

Good luck - might see you there.

Great minds Scotty - you doing Chelmsford?

Well done, if you can do this a marathon is certainly well within your capability. Apart from all the Nike bridges stuff 1st December there is a 10 mile race inMargate check out www.Thanetroadrunners.freeserve.co.uk
Also Runners World lists loads of races. These are great to get to know people and a fun way of improving your running.

Keep it up and maybe we will all see you run past us at Brighton!

No. I've been checking out events for a colleague that lives in Essex. I tend to stick to South London events. Probably doing Crowborough 10K on 1st December.

Good luck with Chelmsford.

Simply go to the tab at the top of this page labelled EVENTS. Type in the month you are interested in, the distance, and the county + any other parameters of interst such as distance from home etc. and then click on search.

You will then see a list of events for the appropriate distance. click on the event title listed and instuctions for entry are displayed as well as any forum discussions on it.

I just did this and there's a 10k in Chelmsfors on the 24 th November.

Hope this helps

05/11/2002 at 14:16

You'll find entry form etc on www.crowboroughrunners.org.uk/Home_Page_Revisited.htm

There's about 6 forumites signed up for it already. I'm hoping to apply myself this week.
