Rich ... in your photos at mile 9, the unidentified runners below known forumites, first pic on the left on the third row down ... No 225 is Kev67.

Cracking photies btw ... I almost look as if I'm in some kind of forward motion in some of them :-)

I am still hoping against hope for a photo of me with both feet off the ground :)

I don't have a single one of those, Snaps - EVER!

I've been told it's because I 'walk' all my marathons.

Am planning to learn how to 'run' then by the spring!!!!

Rich, photos are amazing. I'm at mile 3, (no.337) behind Lee G (a fellow club member). Also spotted my face behind runner 225 at mile 9. As this race is my proudest running moment - very chuffed with the photos. Thanks

I keep saying I did it, I did it, I did it. Then I well up with pride, it's a great feeling.

Someone asked me on Monday,when I was still stiff and aching if it was worth it and I said no. Since then I've changed my mind, and yes it was worth every painfull step in training, the last 3 weeks were hell, at one point I laid on my bed and nearly cried because I my ankle was aching so much I didn't think I was going to be able to do the marathon, then my knee started to play up, but I convinced myself that was my mind playing tricks on me.

I suspect everybody goes through pain of one sort or another during and after the race.

Was it worth it, will I do it again?

YES YES YES it was. I hope to see some of you again at another one sometime in the future

Just read the review, from Paddy, He said he won the race then was disquilified. Anyone know why?
28/10/2006 at 19:34

If you are talking Abingdon it seems that the winner aledgedly used someone elses number and that's against the rules.

Mick - the directory is moving to the RRC (and later TRA) website for 2007 so won't have a book. Are you an RRC member?

cyber - was disqualified for running under somebody else's number didn't do the necessary transfer with the race organisers.
28/10/2006 at 19:44

yes we are members of RRC...

I have the book they sent me, which i believe you designed

At least it has your details in it !!

yes i've just looked , your details are on page 2

RRC and TRA directory

So, me not being very great on computors, where do i look in future please !!
29/10/2006 at 06:27
Mick - as you're a member of the RRC you will be able to access the directory on the RRC website. It's not set up yet but should be done by January.
