Hi gang just back from Newcastle paced my wife round the GNR and she beet me over the line by 1 second in 2.12.23 had too walk a bit when here knee went but things went OK realy was triped twice but never fell thanks to beeing able to move my legs faster to keep balance all in all though it was a great day toped off by having a beer in the main tent and waching white van man and the gaslighters play
The hotel we stopped at was the pits our room was right above a disco and the bed was shaking till 3am the bathroom was a joke with tiles coming off around the bath and the shower took what sempt like 20 minuets to warm up will never stay there again
Well done on the Great North Run Foofighter, sorry to hear about your hotel.
Malakite, I did the kilomathon this year. It went from Nottingham to Derby this year, think it's been reversed next year? It was well organised with buses from the city centre to the start, and for spectators to get to the end, and then everyone back to the city. It was a good route, I enjoyed it. Think there was a bit of an issue at the start where they made everyone get in pens quite early to wait for the off and it was a pretty cold day, so not best ever. However, I ignored them as I was queuing for the loos and just joined them at the last minute, so it was avoidable! I'm going to Edinburgh in a couple of weeks to do the kilomathon there.
hey - id recommend kilomahon it was good fun last year but i did get stuck in the loo queue!my kness still feel quite sore - its like ive pulled a tendon behind it. even walking for too long makes it sore. does anyone have any tips for making this better? its not swollen so i dont think ice will help. i want to go for run !!
First run last night, everythings fine – although I can tell I’ve been training for distance not speed. Good on all of you who trained or ran over the weekend. I stuck to my plan and took the family off to Blackpool. Unfortunately nature conspired on us twice, raining all weekend and giving my eldest (9) a bug which saw him throwing up with alarming regularity.
Curiosity got the better of me, with the discrepancy of 800+ runners , looking at the entries and finishers. So I sent an email to the organisers. Apparantly we had 32 more full entries at the start than finished. So 777 no shows.
HI not been around for a bit but just red back
The name of the hotel was the rex in whitely bay if i do the GNR next year will not be going here
Two weeks post race now and the recovery seems to have gone well. I've got my first off road race on Sunday, a short little 4 miler which will hopefully be fun.
I'd just like to say, it's been a pleasure to share the journey to RHM with you all. I hope you got as much out of the training and the race as I did and wish you well in whatever you decide to target next.
So, when's the London reject Stratford Marathon thread starting?
