Yurr be a rooral outen
is it nearly that time already
Easy, easy, easy Mick!
Will you and Phil be coming again?
how are u old bean
we may do, i'll have to see how i am, i return to training in ealy January
in October i had a op to remove an - Non milignant - tumour from my lung
expereince is on my side, but consultant says - just dont go seeking the old pbs as their gone
you may have to coach and mentor me all over again
HA HA Mick, me coach you? If you listened to the Consultant it will have been for the first time in your life. -If you're missing a chunk of lung, that's not going to help. It's not the end to your Comrades ambition though.-How's the ripped leg attachment stringy bit? -The back should be a bit better after a lay off.-Don't tell me you've put weight on and you're now 8 stone?
One piece of advice, if you want it take it, if you don't want it, just skip..You have got NOTHING to prove to anybody Mick. You've been there, done it, got the T shirt, the supporters club, and the status of iconic legend. I'm sure that Phil enjoys just being out and taking in the atmosphere of the events, and meeting old mates.
ha bladdy ha
the attachment u speak of - ( i'm told medically ) that for a man of my age i have a very large prostate gland - so, sometimes after about 9 miles - ish - my bladder starts working overtime - HM's - ok - after that can become pretty uncomphy
My back is better, after years of dismantling electric scooters and wheelchairs into a vehicle never designed for doing so - we now have a wheelchair accessable vehicle - though my back gets sore some days still - but it is as ive been told, - some things in life can come just too late
i can resume running in late december - early January - just how ?? it will go i have absolutely no idea - i'm not at all bothered , i'll deal with it as it happens
i must say, i loved all our times together - i have NOT forgotten, and never will - ( you , me and lots of others ) truelly inspired each other
and i sincerely hope that ALL the expereinced runners can mentor and and inspire the lesser expereinced runners - to achieve what we all have and feel good
Piss in the bushes Mick. Like the rest of us. 2x ibuprofen won't get you a lifetime ban. 6x coffees might, though...
If the marathon is cancelled you may not get your money back. I entered another event organised by Beyond The Limitations; the Berkeley marathon to be held in November 2012. In September it was cancelled due to a lack of entries. Despite emails, a letter, and phone calls, including a warning that I would leave this entry on Runner's World website, I have not had any response; let alone my money back.
Hi John - that's the reason I won't be entering until the last minute! I know the organiser has had some health issues so it may or may not happen depending on who steps in I guess. It would be a great start to the year so I am hoping to do it. Would be great to see Mick 'n' Phil there too, fitness permitting of course ...
If everyone leaves it to the last minute then the noose tightens on the race. Have faith.
They did have a 50k race cancelled due to flooding in 2007 and re-ran it a month later.
Karen - that's exactly what did happen, I was offered a place at Glos when they cancelled Berkeley, and I accepted.
I've had the same. Entered for the Berkeley marathon and offered a place in the Gloucester marathon which I accepted, but have had no response to confirm it despite emailing and leaving phone messages.
Chidder - i asked for a confirmation of Glos entry at the time and I received an email straight away.
hi, thinking of entering this one - how often are the drinks stops, and what do they give out? just water or are there energy drinks too?
Thanks a lot
thanks for your help - I think I'll enter this one - need some energy drinks en route in a marathon
