PB for me last year in Cardiff, not real hope of repeating that at the mo, so I'll rub shoulders with DB9

 go on then, im guessing 1.55 as i hear cardiff is a good PBer and its only my 2nd ever half, so as long as i beat 1.58 i be a happy bunny, the super hero costume might slow me down a bit though?

not doing this one this year as i think its a bit steep.done it last 3 years,aimed for sub 1.30 following a guy called carlos (i think) managed to achieve it and more.really worked to follow a pacesetter as i felt like going faster at start but followed the guy and at end still had something left.the finish a lot better last year than the finish at the castle,that was bedlam!!!pretty smooth organisation and support would reccomend its just the prce thats putting me offill be doing torfaen instead(now thats the one for a PB)

I will look at website for pacers, I may be interested.

I've run this the last 3 years, although 2006 was the Full Mara for myself (last time they held one).  I know I'm nowhere near fit to mount a PB attempt (1:28), but was considering a reasonable 1:35'ish as a pacer perhaps.

Believe they've already got a 1.30 and I'm doing the 1.40 daz
08/09/2009 at 11:02
Lol SC, doubt I could manage sub-1:30 at the moment anyway. I see you've got the 1:40, and not sure I'd fancy 1:50, I'd find it difficult at that pace I think.

Might just low-key pace a few club members, will see what times they're aiming for.

Oh man, I just signed up for this but I'm nowhere near your times! I'd LOVE to get under 2 hours. I ran Bristol HM on Sunday in 2.12 although I had an operation 7 weeks ago, so I was pretty pleased with that considering. Perhaps with a big push this month I can get close to 2 hours...you never know!

Catoface - that's not a bad time considering the 7 weeks, work hard for the next 4 weeks, allow a 2 week taper and you should be good to go!

Hello Spike, I assumed it was you lol.  Usual rubbish here, not content with my running, feels like I'm getting worse.  Obviously just old age I guess.  Will see you there.  Did you do Cardiff 10K?

I signed up for this last night on a post Bristol high.  Did it a couple of years ago quite seriously ill ... wasnt planning on it this year as for some reason I though it was £35!  When I found out it was £26 it almost felt like a bargain, lol.

Me too! Hope you got on ok on Sunday - was fairly warm!

Daz - thank you for the motivation, I think it might be a long shot to get under 2 hours, but I'll give it a right good go! Your times are the kind I can only dream of - good luck with the race whatever you decide to aim for.

Very warm!  Catoface, what time did you do in Bristol, a couple of years ago I did a 2.04 in Bristol then a 2.00 in Cardiff, Cardiff is the faster course ....
