welcome to wor new hoose!!!!!!
Hi folks welcome to our new house.
Over the past 3 years we have probably naffed up the Edinburgh marathon forums for real runners. Subjects such as crap days at work, marriage, pregnancy, divorce, football, morris dancing New Zealanders, the Apprentice, Big Brother, naked ramblers, the sound of music, pop idol, illness, depression, shoes, shopping, drink, cakes, more drink, trains, bikes with stabilisers, more cakes, chocolate, easter eggs, more chocolate, pizzas, curries, chinease take aways, children (not available in takeaway outlets), holidays, more crap at work etc etc may have detracted slightly in hindsight from the event itself. As quite a few of us didn't run or in my case didn't get round who cares!!!!!!!!!
This thread is intended to be a network where Edinburgh marathon runners past and present can get together and basically hang out of an evening (or whilst sciving at work). Whilst reaching out to regular runners like smiffie, soph, amber, smout, Kiwi et al it also welcomes other newbees like Dippycat, Adie, Cavehill and Afresh who have joined us this year and we would miss if they didn't keep in touch. We also love to keep in touch with folk like Bungee and KarenD who have done Edinburgh in the past and moved onto other marathons elsewhere in the world or bigger, smaller, better, more personal or in the case of Mrs D weirdly different challenges that seem rediculously long and unentertaining to the rest of us. Oh and bedhspaped too who some horrific illness and/or injury befalls her year after year to prevent her running!!!!!!
I've made some really good friends via this forum for the last 3 years and I'd hate to lose touch with you all (the feeling is probably not mutual ) although some may find me harder to get rid of than others
This thread is the runners world equivalent of cheers. Everybody knows your name and we are always glad you came!!!!!!! Come in, make yourself at home and I hope to see you all soon.
mmmmmmmmm thanks Can33 i think i might pop in from time to time (most days then) and see whos doing what!!!!
will we set ourselves a target of 10000+ messages before next years race, though that should be easy!!!!!
I've made it over from the other side.
First thing I have to sayis that I'm not sure what all the fuss is about England losing the cricket. Holland have produced some great players over the years e.g. Cruyff, Rep , Van Basten. No shame in losing to them !!!
Hey Can ace idea, think the naughty step might need a bit of refurbishment though, was it not curry kiwi who was in there last so what race am I gonna have the pleasure of seeing you at next, Milnathort Dash? Is that the one with the bloody big hill at the start? And yeh life running or not running is better having all you mad lot in it
Hi KP long time no see, so you'll be training for Dublin and a load of us will be training for Loch Ness in Oct Need to track done J Rex and see if she is doing Dublin aswell?
Adie we should def hit the 10000 lol
Housework, paperwork, dog walking and a run planned for today! Hubby at work so once I get off here, will get going lol
Enjoy your Saturdays all x
LOL at bean bag Smout, you'll not get up!
It didn't take some of you long to find the new house. We dont just have a bean bag for you smout we have got one of those super delux birthing pools James advertised on the apprentice. You know the one with the drinks holder and ashtray lol
Brig Bash and Milnathort dash are on the callender and work permitting I will hopefully get to both. At the very worst I'll get to the brig bash because its a bit closer to Dundee and had a bigger array of cakes at the finish. Against my probably better judgement I've also entered the dundee half in a fortnights time. I'm playing with the idea of running a 10k in Arbroath tomorrow. I think I've only ran one 10k in over a year so may be nice. I went to the pub last night instead of tonight just in case I fancy it
Lovely to see the Kiora Plodder popping into play. Hope you have been fit and well
ha ha I was wondering that too!!!!!! Thought you knew something we didn't Can lol
Just back from sunny doggie walk and now looks like it is going to pour!! Checked weather and the sun is meant to come back out by 4pm so its run time then instead of now.
I'm doing both the Dash and the Bash I love the Bash, its such a nice run on a summers evening
Hi girls good to see ya lol at the birthing pool Can. Bean bag sounds a good idea Smout for the expanding baby belly
Away to make food now that I'm not running till later now
The more the merrier Vixx hope you are fit and well. Just one wee question though where the hell have you been all this time?
If Bungee says the sun is coming out at 4pm we will have a house warming barbecue on the roof terrace of this swanky new penthouse. Its no a bad wee pad is it folks
I think one of those pesky moderators at runners world must have been fiddling with my links to go to the bookmark place. It wasn't doing that when I went to my bed last night
Just to disappear totally off topic when is fathers day? Cant be arsed going into town to buy a pressie but would have to if its tomorrow. It must be pretty soon.
Its 21st Can
Hi Vixx course you can join us so you did Edin in the HOT year with the uphill finish!!! A lot of folk still like that route better even with the uphill end madness lol I was spectating that year. I ran in 07 & 08 and then decided I definately don't like the existing route! I'll never say never but at the minute spectating Edin will do!! Am looking forward to Loch Ness now
Just made and now eating a big bowl of red thai prawn curry with jasmine rice So by the time this goes down I'll be ready for my run
I never said I like the climb I like the 1st 22 miles better!!!!!!!
Old route until portobello, dont do u-turn and head back to hollyrood and continue straight ahead to musselburgh race course. Best of both worlds. Fast course, sees more of edinburgh, should be downwind for most of it (although hasn't happened for the last 3 years bizarrely) and a good finish at the racecourse. Win win situation.
