A general forum for runners in Thanet
A lot of you know that I am "out there somewhere in the Far East" ...
Just to reassure people, I was nowhere near the earthquake or tsunami (although water levels did rise a bit around the coasts in Korea) ...
The prevailing spring wind is north west to south east so we are not (yet) in the path of any nuclear fallout from the Fukushima plant ...
All is well ... although I am concerned about many ex-colleagues and ex-students who live in Miyagi area...
thanks DB, good to hear. Bobo and I were thinking of you last night although I was sure you were in a different part of the world. You've confirmed that.
If anyone's at a loose end today, the quad bike racing on Margate beach is worth an hour... we went yesterday and enjoyed it. It's free too!
DB, good to hear you're ok.
We went too yesterday PSC, can't believe how many people were down there, was good to watch
Many thanks to TT and his father-in-law Mike for the lift to Lydd and their company today. TRAC had a turnout of, I think, 7 with the two of us plus Steve King and TJ also running, together with a couple whom I did not recognise and their son, who won the children's race by a fair margin.
The course is totally flat and despite a fair amount of wind I think there were quite a few PBs around with TT and I both getting one and me getting below 2hrs for a Half at the 21st attempt! This race got a very bad press over the last 2 years and they really made a huge effort this time and it was almost faultless. A big improvement.
Thanks JFDI - that's all newsletters posted, so hopefully everyone will have theirs within the next few days.
Good to hear all's relatively well in your part of the East, DB.
Cinders/PSC - is that the same quad bikes that meant wewe couldn't have our 10 this morning?!
Very well done on cracking that 2 hr mark at long last, CB ! I know they've been canned recently, but fair play if they've pulled their finger out. No results up yet, but I'll keep an eye out.... That might have been Sarah and Stephen - I know his lad runs in the juniors.
I felt very heavy legged out this morning, after two big mileage weeks (for me, at least!) - was glad I didn't have much more than 13 pencilled in anyway!
Well done CB!
Only 3 people turned up at the Pavilion this morning - 2 were really nice about it and one (an ex TRAC member was a complete a**e but heyho! The 2 guys both deferred till this year as they like our races and one was off to enter our marathon as he's heard good things about that too
Glad to hear DB is safe - sending positive thoughts to your friends
Oops, sorry Ed, yes, the same quads. They'd be brill of course on another weekend
Glad there were only 3 JFDI
