J8 - Be careful & take it easy.


The Trotters are putting on an end of fundraising celebration event or 'closing ceremony' so to speak at Marple Cricket Club on Saturday 12th January to mark the end of the amazing fundraising efforts for The Christie and to show appreciation & thank people for their generosity and support.

The evening will involve team quizes and games to entertain everyone, the bar will most definitely be open and we'll end the night with some music and dancing.

There will be no further requests for donations on the night but if you would like to pop a fiver in the box on the way in, this will cover the costs of the night (except the bar tab!) and any left overs will obviously go into the fundraising pool.

It would be great if you could come and so to keep track of numbers please can you confirm whether you and if you have one, your OH are able to make it.

I will start a list! (I just hope this is more successful than one of GBM's!)

Is anyone else thinking about doing the Ribble Valley 10k? it is on 30/12/12

A few of us did it last year and it attracts a great field (apart from us). Undulating but fast and a good excuse to have a few lighter days.

www.ribblevalley10k.org.uk/

not sure I can be bothered to get up there on my own but if anyone else is up for it...?

BHB, be a good warm up for the 4 vills..

J8-a fair few GOOD long distance runners can acquire this condition, at least Eric and GBM won't have this problem , let's hope it's sorted soon, was it NHS or private, as NHS seem to be very good nowadays, Wythenshawe, seem to be the specialist in this field in the North.

PPP re. JP

GBM-unfortunately 1.2 secs. difference is a lifetime in sprinting, it sounds good but they'll be thousands ahead of me, i'm looking at doing the Masters championships in May i think, if my body doesn't fall apart.

JS-i'm enlisting you on my next fund raising  and yes, i've contributed. How's the injury/condition?

TB - I don't know if I've misunderstood you or if you've misunderstood me, the purpose of the event is not an attempt to ask for more donations for the fundraising campaign as everyone has been so generous already, it's simply an excuse for a piss up, to thank everyone, and to hand over the whopper of a cheque to The Christie and mark the end of a tough 18 months. The suggested £5 is just to cover the cost of the night so the whole fundraising amount can go to The Christie.

Re injuries/probs, slowly getting better thanks but it's gonna be a loooong road back. Well done on the speedy 100's.

22/11/2012 at 14:07

J8, I guess the usual things like trying to reduce blood pressure, alcohol and salt intake are what you should be doing until results are back.  Fingers crossed for you.

Are you in BUPA - you would probably get seen within a few days.  And what made you get tested in the first place? 

22/11/2012 at 14:14

SARQ, may be up for LSR on Sunday...but LSR to me is 7:30 m/m not faster.  I'll be doing 16 miles or so.  Would prefer a bit later than 0800, but if that's all that works for you and maybe PPP then OK.

I also won't be doing a parkrun on Saturday, so PPP you have no excuse to avoid Burnage (and you had better beat my time after the age related stick you have been giving me).

JS, what or who are The Trotters?

22/11/2012 at 14:31

BHB, LSR was just ridiculous last week, but it was all PPPs fault, you needed to be there to help me reel him in.
8am works as it doesn't effect the rest of the day for me with the young ones, mainly OH.

22/11/2012 at 15:01
SARQ - my fault! It wasn't me we were reeling in!

Might make it Sunday but might do LSR tomorrow afternoon as I am stuck at school for a few hours prior to the oh so thrilling speech night. So if I can be bothered I will do it then. having said that, I probably wont so I will join you for part of it at least as I will need to do some sort of a run anyway. So outside the Lizzy at 8:05?

BHB - fair comment on the Parkrun but 18:10 is a good effort on that course and I can't do it this Saturday as the OH is at work. I will be doing the xc next weekend though.
22/11/2012 at 15:18

Jonah8 and i are doing a track session tonight at 6.30 if anyone is interested in joining us/watching Jonah8 pop his clogs! He has promised me his trainers so don't be angry with me when i remove them from his corpse. 

22/11/2012 at 16:39

Some of us had a pleasant run in the sunshine this morning

GBM - would like to join you Sat but cooking stuff for the inlaws all day!!

22/11/2012 at 22:43

J8 - Hope you are OK and can get it all cleared up soon.

GBM - I will join you on Sat but I'm going to scratch from the Grouse. I don't want to 'race' on consecutive days on the back of my meagre mileage over the last 4 weeks.

I picked the wrong day to run home from work without a rain jacket or cap !

23/11/2012 at 08:38

JS - M and me would like to come to the Trotters do, it thats okay, please. Cheers.

 

23/11/2012 at 11:08
SW - you do like shopping don't you?
23/11/2012 at 11:15

SW - I assume you're signed up with Sport Pursuit? if not I can send you a link to register via that bags me a fiver!
