Waves at Arty - I think I may well be up for this

I'd like to do it, but the Dublin Marathon is on the monday after so I think I am going to have to pass.  It's a shame as I wanted to do the first Birmingham Half-Marathon, but you can't help the way events fall....

Maybe next year....

Hi Maddy (nice pic!)

 Was going to email you to ask if you were going to do it. For some reason I am quite excited about it. I haven't run a step for months and months...   (not quite sure what each icon means, but that's meant to be *wibble*)

Arty you know you have plenty of time to build up to this just watch that hip - and get out for a long walk TODAY while the weather is gorgeous

LOL re pic has Lurker caught up with you about that yet?

The pictures are going down very well on some of the dating websites

Ah I am one step ahead! I've already been down to Cannon Hill for a walk this morning hehe.

 No, Lurker hasn't mentioned anything yet.

 Glad to hear they are working!

I'm just looking up training schedules.

Dusting off my shoes and going for first run in months tomorrow in prep for this event. Wish me luck!

Shame about the date change as that is the great south run date and my birthday!!!

Already entered great south this year but will hold off next year (should it go ahead again?!)

Still no new yet then?

Quite anxious to get signed up and 'committed' to it formally!

Me too Artemis.  Hope they do something before the closing date!

Not a snifter more about this event, save in Runner's World's fleeting reference to it in this month. Anyone else heard anything?  Any thoughts on the route?

Just found out about Birmingham Half, perfect timing as just got rejected in the ballot for the Great North Run

Any more news from BCC? 

 I am planning the remainder of my runs around this so it feeds into the half training, but if this is for any reason postponed/cancelled, it is going to mess up my travel and training plans - can BCC confirm it is going ahead? 

The website says more soon, but when folks, if it is going to be the flagship for next year, you'd hope  it would be up and running for entries by now - please update us - I am getting twitchy here - my money may go elsewhere (would rather not) if we're not hearing anything!
