pingu- my avatar is a clue lol
still no race pace, although it does say on the e-mail, it could take up to the 14th
Got my race pack and my VLM acceptance mag today. Both franked by the dog on arrival at the house!
Number 4446 for me
Daz who said it would be mission impossible?
I did beat my PB by a second this year, laurag, and I think it's about the most annoying thing you can do in competition with yourself! I mean, one second! What's the point in that!! If I missed it by a second, I'd be upset, but I'd know exactly what I needed to do. If I beat it by loads of seconds I'd be really happy that my training was paying off. But one second, what does that mean? Can I stop there? One second in 13.1 miles! At least I know what my race pace is...
I've not had my race pack through yet got my VLM reject though. I too will be racing in pirate kit. Am aiming for around 2:10 if i'm being realistic. Did 2:01:25 at Llanelli but have had a knee op etc this year so am no where near fit enough. As I watched last year on crutches anything is a bonus this year Have a hilly 10 miler planned for tomorrow. Is anyone doing a long run next weekend too or starting to lay off? Can't decide.....
Long hilly one for me in the morning too.
my mate entered ages ago and forgot, so booked a holiday, im not sure which he is doing, so i will find out and let you know
Pebble - I managed to source one here, you might be lucky:
Fetch Cardiff Spaces Thread
Rio - what's that they say about new tricks
not so fit, you have to look at it differently. If it doesn't go well on the day, blame the race organisation, blame the other runners, blame the course, blame the lack of toilets at the start. Or, if you really think it was your training, blame the early nights, the overwork, the family that just doesn't understand, the dog that you tripped over spraining your ankle. Just don't blame yourself, you're doing everything that you can!
Honestly, you're going to have a great day out, doing something you love, alongside thousands of other people who love doing the same thing you do. You're going to get fed, watered, and cheered along the way; laugh at strained photographs online afterwards; and sign up for every other race you can find!
Who needs a PB? They're easy. I got one in the very first Half I ran!
Hey Ratzer-you're right. I think it's coz I did an eleven miler Thursday-never got into it-hated every step and just thought-Thank God that's over at the end-Didn't even get the post race buzz-wheras the week before I felt great-Just a bad day! Gotta do the Cardiff 10k next Sunday as well.
Just gotta think-everyone else is suffering too around the 9-10 mark!
So, what are the identifying signs for the pacers?
Are there energy drinks en route? Site only mentions water stops.
Is the start segmented by time? Properly? And policed?
Is the bag label going to stay stuck to the bag?
Are 11,000 cars going to be able to park near the start, when there're about 2500 spaces?
Why haven't they changed the name to half-snickers yet?
Going on last year:
They were holding sticks with small cards with the time.
No just water I think.
Yes, sort of, no.
Wrap it round a strap and stick sticky bit to sticky bit?
No but lots of locals will get trains/buses/lifts in.
Can't help you with that one!
