Of course I will CR . . was thinking about it the other day.

Already have a Dublin resource section, am going to do one for Connemara . . and you've provided lots of links and it makes sense to keep them in one place. Took me a while just now to trawl through the thread but I've got them all bookmarked now so it's a simple matter.

We can add to it as we move forward to. I'll put something together over the next week . . bit busy this weekend with daughter coming to stay . . and let you check it out before we reveal it to an unsuspecting world!!

It'll be a pleasure!!

One thing about your list in the post above . . you ought to include those of us who are definitely going along at the top of it don't you think . . so it has the definites first and then the probables, in two separate sections.

Better get to bed after all that unhealthy and unfamiliar thinking!!

Nite all . .

Rich,

No hurry with website. Enjoy your daughters company.

Called my cousin in CPH yesterday to secure private accommodation. She could not believe I was already planning these things for my nxt marathon. Guess, I am a bit early....

Good list CR!!!

If you get stuff like your accomodation sorted now then you can relax and train with peace of mind . . far better than worrying about it or leaving it to the last minute.

I was looking at some of the accomodation websites you'd suggested last night, in case my contact doesn't work out. Didn't seem so expensive to me!!

Enjoy the weekend . .

CR - you can add Seaweed to the definites but for the moment I have to stay in the probables.

..got my email confirmation through...need to find some time to read through the 100 or so outstanding posts since I last really looked at this....unless anyone can summarise for me ;-))

OB,

Must admit I don't know Seaweed, but I trust you and have added him/her (?) to the list...

So, OB, what made you change your mind?
You can register now and wait and pay at the Expo...

Glad to hear you will be ready to resume training next week CR. I would really like to do a sub 2hr half before switching the focus to marathon training but I haven't managed to enter a half until Reading next March. Must try to find something sooner.

Save a bit of chocolate for me.

Is LR on the list of probables?
CR

Thought you were gone off chocolates! Just received huge box of "Ferrero Rocher" from guest.

LR is not yet on list. He does not want to hear another word about the RW! He he..
He has entered Flora and Paris.

When he hears how many probable forum runners there are on the list, I think he will soften up and consider...

Am keen to run RP Wednesday. Will save some chocolates for us as post race treats!

Well, I would like to aim for the sub 2 hour half marathon too...

I think it would be perfect, if we could do some 5 and 10 k's first, gradually build up to the half marathon in March and then the big one in May.... What do you think?
07/11/2003 at 20:48
I am itching to do a half marathon sooner. Preferably tomorrow but can't find anything other than maybe Bedford on 14 December for which I have no transport.
Have you entered any other races (5K, 10K?)
Looking forward to RP and esp the choccies. Don't forget to bring some for CA!
PS I did a RP pb today.

There's an awful lot of code going on here . . have to get the CIA or the FBI in to investigate I think!!


Don't forget on December 14th it's the Forum Holly and Mistletoe Christmas Frolic near Reading . . there's a thread on URWFRC altho' it doesn't often make sense!


Ian . . guess there's nobody who wants to summarise the story so far!! But it's a bit like a soap opera isn't it? Doesn't matter if you miss a few episodes, you just join in wherever you find yourself . .


07/11/2003 at 22:37
Yes, I know about the Holly & Mistletoe get together but have been meaning to find out more. I know this is the wrong thread but Rich, can you tell me whether the rest of the family (Inc children) are welcome and whether food is involved or is it just beer drinking? Will you be there?
07/11/2003 at 22:44

At last, somebody's come out to play!!


I can answer the last question first . . yes, I'll be there . .

And I definitely plan to eat lunch as well as enjoy a drink. Don't forget that many of us will be driving so the beer drinking shouldn't get silly.

One of the organisers, BK, is sending me some information about the run (I have the maps already) which I'm going to post on my website so that everybody gets a chance to see it, it's easier than e-mailing stuff to everybody.

I'll ask him how family friendly this is likely to be . . and does he know of other families that are coming along . . it's the sort of thing that should be mentioned one way or the other . . Personally I hope families are included but runners are odd sometimes aren't they!!

I'll let you know when I know more . .

08/11/2003 at 09:41
Thanks Rich. I know on a lot of the "dog" threads people often start comparing dogs to children in terms of being a nuisance.
Wouldn't want to create a bad atmosphere.

CR - Seaweed is a forumite who started the long, never-ending "New york" thread. He is a "proper" marathon runner but likes to do the large events in fancy dress and for charity. He ran with me both in New York and Dublin (where he was dressed as the schoolteacher).

He has already entered Copenhagen and I'm negotiating the domestic bit to try to be there with him!

Great stuff. What was your PB?

Maybe you and CA should run alone if I slow down the pace too much?

Of course, I'm the one, who's got the chocs, he, he....
CR

Rich,

You won't need either CIA or FBI. If you're really interested in the codes, I'll help you,- but off the record.....

Sorry, I don't think I'll be able to attend the H&M get-together. December 14th and 15th are already booked. Hope you will have a great party!

CR
08/11/2003 at 15:58
OB,

Thanks! I saw that great picture with you and Seaweed.

I wonder how he's going to dress up in CPH?! Maybe in "The Emperor's New Clothes"?

OB, why not bring over family/domestic goddess to CPH?

Lots of activities, shopping, sightseeing etc.... Tell me what they want, and I'd be more than happy to help out...
