Just popping my head round the corner to say hello. Signed up this morning.
Thanks Goldeagle. I was at Amsterdam at the weekend. Bagged a PB so I was chuffed to bits. How'd you get on? Looking forward to Paris next year.
Weedy, well done on the PB. A couple of the other guys on the thread did Amsterdam. I'm doing Snowdonia on Saturday with Fiona and Philby. Beginning to wish I'd done Amsterdam....
Brilliant run guys in Amsterday, Dave great story about getting lost there.....
All the best to the Snowden runners enjoy and have fun if you can a mountain marathon!!
I think me and DT2 are having a sub 2:30 smackdown in Edinburgh next year - anyone else?
Am soooooo jealous (not) of you guys doing Snowdon this weekend. My body just wouldn't comtemplate 26.2 on a mountain - ever!
I'm sure you will all have a good time though and if anyone smashes a PB I will eat Noah's sick stained bib!
This was Jo's best attempt at a pic in Amsterdam. Now I know that us guys can shift a bit but really - is this the best I can expect!
and finally - the heroes enjoy a beer!
good luck for tomorrow one and all. I'll be thinking of you - oh hang on - I've got a half marathon tomorrow
It's today, not tomorrow... I've only just realised when I saw a sponsored advert on Facebook...clicked the link to be taken to S4C and when I looked at the listings for tomorrow it said "highlights of yesterdays race" meaning todays race...Oops!!
No text message from Fi, no updates on FB, nothing on here...do you think we should send out a search party?
Just arrived home after a fantastic weekend in North Wales. Great company and an amazing marathon. That is a seriously hard race but we were so lucky that the weather was kind. Got round in 4:25:20 which I'm really pleased with. Then a few beers with the gang last night. Legs don't feel too bad today but don't think it's a race I'll do again. Weather was awful this morning (normal Snowdon Mara weather). Don't think I would have enjoyed that much.
Will let Fi tell you about her PB attempt
Well, no going back now, that's me entered for 2013! been out of the running game for a year or so but decided this is just the motivation I need to kick start the passion back up, not done a full marathon for 2 years now so we'll see how it goes - BRING IT ON!!!!
Sounds like a great weekend guys - wish I could have been there for it. You all did great jobs and to go close to a PB beggars belief but at least I can get Noah's sick stained bib in the washer now. Been saving it up for a few days just in case!
If I can give you some advice Philby it would be to not race again next week!
I did a half yesterday just 7 days after the Amsterdam marathon and was leading for about 200 yards but 8th after a mile and in pain with my calf muscle. This spread to both legs and the thighs by mile 3 in 30th place. Could hardly breathe and just about hung on to finish. Although I was beaten by a boy in a scary mask and a carrot.
However, just to prove that not all best runs are the fastest I got talking to a guy at 9 miles desperate to go under 1:22 for a PB. I offered to pace him to the finish which gave me something to do and we delivered in 1:21:53. He was chuffed to bits and I thoroughly enjoyed helping another runner smash their target. Happy Days!
Welcome to the thread Hill1. This is the thread for the Edinburgh Marathon 2010 but we're still going. Most of us went back last year and some are going again this year I think (Me and DT2 are in) Your more than welcome to hang around and chat but usually when we make that offer we don't see people again - please stay, we're lonely in here!
