NEnot that anyone would think of printing off your post and showing it to H!!!Good pacey run round the Stray should set you up nicely. I think you may have transferred your achilles problems to me - mine has been naggling again for a week or so now
XPShope we miss the wind - it can be a bit exposed out there!!
It WAS windy last year. Wardi wasn't the only one who was a bit frustrated.
TS - you wouldn't ........ would you???
XPSI thought the lowlight last year was the dozy woman BMW driver who drove at speed along the partially flooded road and soaked many runners - including me!!The wind rounded it off nicely after that...................
NEwho - me??????
XPSnot much chance of me featuring near the front nowadays!!
Well after a run on Sunday that was seemingly in the teeth of a gale for much of the way I can only hope we do not experience that on Sunday coming!!!Wardi's fine mane of hair may prove to be a severe drag if that is the case - I think a visit for me to the sheep shearer will be in order before the race!!
I recall that Wardi did not actually feature in the finishers list last year at first time of asking !!
I guess having to pick up the chips personally will prevent 99.5% of the male runners using female runners numbers that caused so much confusion to the officials last year - it is hard enough for them as it is without that sort of stuff going on.
perfect race day today - no wind, clear blue skies, light frost overnight. Light taper run reinforced just how nice it was outside
unfortunately it will not last.....................................
.......................it isn't going to change.
Wind SW 18 mph - snow and sleet showers forecast
So that's a head wind on the way out and tail wind to finish - could be worse he says optimistically!of course it could die out half way round...................................
Good luck everyone and enjoy it anyway.
Thanks for that wonderful news, TS
I'm always hopeful that the weather peeps will get it completely wrong.Especially in the flatlands of York.
Then again, weather of that kind will allow me to wear my new winter gear.
Question: Does anyone know if there are shower facilities available after the race?? I'm hoping to just get showered and head straight to the train station, but obviously I can't do that if i'm stinky/covered in snow... I looked on the website but couldn't see any info. I'm loath to email the organisers this close to the race as I know they'll be swamped, so thought I'd try here first.
Good luck everyone.
I think it says 'showers available' somewhere - the booklet sent out with your number? I'm driving there from Durham and certainly hope there are!
