LJB - what weight increase?!?! you've lost loads!

Chris - I would recommend the Nottingham half, for sure, but not sure that most people are too enamoured with the loneliness in the 2nd half though.  However, it doesn't matter if you've decided against it anyway!

Yeti - yes, but I have put some back on and scared I will end up big again if I dont stop going to the garden shed (Chris M - you couldnt possibly know but our shed acts as a wine cellar)

Plus agree with Y - have done Notts half which was great, however feedback on full from other running buddies is not good.

HTA - click on the speech marks under their post, then in your post, click the speech marks on your own toolbar. You can edit the quotes to say just the bits you want...

I dont get speach marks under the post - just message member, ignore member and send to a friend. Theres a bubble with a + in in it top left hand corner but that doesnt seem to do anything....

Must be being stupid.

Road kill - I'm doing Robin Hoom mara too , I wanted New Forest but didn't get a place in time, but couldn't face two laps of Wolverhampton. I'll do the Wolves half then RH and the New Forest Half then Snowdonia.

Hey guys, whats the robin hood marathon like, do you recommend ?

As has been said before, great 1st half, 2nd a bit tedious, particularly the bit round the rowing lake at Holme Pierrepoint. I'm going back for my second, though.

Hey you guys,

 if you could do me a favour and ask about results as soon as you finish and mention that I do display screens etc at the wolverhampton half that would be great.  I didn't get the contract  for that one so would like to encourage them for next year

Where's the petition? (not that I'm doing the Wolvo half)

Well it was Wloves or Robin Hood , and as I've done wolves half several times I couldn't face two laps!
