PPP, rest up old timer - it's your comeuppance for shouting obscenities out of your car window.
Just been looking at VB stuff and noticed this year's entry form had 'ladies record 79:27' on it, but JS did 79:02 last year????
Jonah8/RC/JMC/SARQ/other non forumites--Great turnout this morning. Thanks for the run!
Good Luck all racers this weekend!!
Good luck to all those running this weekend especially FOAR who I managed to transfer my number to.
Grindleford - I know it's a few weeks away but I just wanted to get you all thinking. The trains don't run from Marple to Grindleford on that day and there is a bus replacement service instead, so don't think we'll be doing that! There are however trains running between Hazel Grove and Grindleford so that's an option. Secondly, is everyone racing it or are we running in groups? Thirdly, are we making a day of it and either getting some lunch at the pub in Grindleford we went to at Christmas or should we make our way back to the Hairy Dog (via HG) or Hazel Grove to watch United in the pub at 3pm (home to Norwich)? Lots to consider!!
Like GBM said, Great turn out, best for ages, like the "old days".
Ending up doing 20 miles in 2.22, looking good for Boston.
ES- I will be driving to Grindleford, I'm running it with Kev like last year, could do with you running it with us because I'm not 100% sure of the route.
Think I'll give watching the football a miss though.
Morticia, I think last year was when the locals thought it was good fun to switch the signs and send runners on the wrong route. Perhaps they are not recognising course records for that reason? That's a pity 'cos I'm sure JS's time was genuine.
Sounds like I missed a good run this morning. Did 12 miles myself today but it felt harder than it should have.
Grindleford - I got my matches mixed up. United kick off at 12.45pm away at West Ham on Grindleford day. Looks like another plan is needed!
Grindleford - forget everything I've talked about above! If United beat Reading tomorrow then they'll be in the cup that weekend and won't play Norwich or West Ham. They'll be playing Middlesbrough or Chelsea on a day and time yet to be decided.
Well done Morticia!
ES - I hope you were never fixtures secretary for that club you were involved in !
Well done all racers.
Half way through marathon training now .
Haha FOAR thanks for the help - there is a bit of a knack to the scanning especially on a bright day with 400 runners. The gate was a bit of a fail though!
I think we all had the same experience at VB HM. Perfect temperature, running along really well 6-7-8-9 ... then at 10 miles the wind that we hadn't noticed on our backs was suddenly head on. That made for a testing last 3 miles but I managed to contest 3rd until within sight of the finish. So 4th in 72.52. Which gives PPP a target for Wilmslow.
Charlie Batho collected 10 thermal mugs from the organisers of the aborted Helsby HM when he was at Wrexham yesterday. He asked me to let you all know he'll be at the track on both Tues and Thurs evening this week and will hand them out on a first-come, first served basis to would-be Helsby runners. He said that the organisers also requested the return of the chipped race numbers if any of you still have them, to help keep their costs down for next year.
RB- i think PPP will have a better chance when he has his hair cut, he'll lose 10lbs in weight.
FOAR-people have strengths in different areas, Eric's isn't in planning or direction, there again, that goes for half the threadites
Mort-who won the great debate, you or Daz?
PPP, you have RB's pretty amazing V45 time to aim for. Good luck with that one!
ES - does that mean your Grindleford entry is up for grabs?
Can I have first dibs please. I promise not to beat your amazing time of last year!
