Come one, come all; everyone welcome on this year long build up to the GNR
As much as I miss the North East (and will move back there some day) the South has one (and only one) advantage THE WEATHER - still managing to get most of my runs in outside at moment
Hi Adrian and welcome. It's always nice to find a new route isn't it. Sometimes it gets boring running along the same roads so finding somewhere new doesn't make it seem as much as a slog ... until the novelty wears off .
I should have done a 9 miler last night but wasn't able to. For one thing it was bitingly cold up here and windy so it would have been just horrible. Plus, I was expecting an electrician mate of ours to pop round after work as one of our RCDs keeps tripping (usually when no-one is in the house, so no appliances being used). I told him I'd be available from 4pm onwards. At 7.30pm he called to say he couldn't make it so it was too late by then to get out anyway.
I'll try and get out tonight instead.
I quite like the Coast Road. The monotony of the run feels like a good test as the miles pass by. Can't beat the Quayside and Tyne Bridge though - love running up throuhg town and past St James - good hill work out!
Long run at the weekend - 21 miler - so may see some of you oooot and aboooot.
I must be finding some mojo at last as I'm looking forward to tonight's run even though the wind is blowing and it's quite cold. No snow or ice, not that we've had much here.
Mrs LFC got her redundancy notice from the council she works for the other day. The good news is, she had a redeployment meeting and has been offered another job, still within the council, just for less hours. Better than no hours.
lfc - good and bad news on Mrs LFC but in todays climate work is a bonus. Good to hear your Mojo is back
ballot results being emailed as we speak, im in, who else???????
Well done to everyone who got places in the ballot. Hard lines about your daughter, BP, but at least with the charity place you can still run it together. Maybe we might get to meet you both in September.
Blimmin' freezing again tonight. Wrapped up warm and went out after work for a cheeky 9 miler that I should have done yesterday. I was dreading it but actually quite enjoyed it.
My skin was the colour of salmon once I got home.
BP - I did the GNR in 1:46 last year, but that was a total fluke, dunno where that came from. I'd be happy with 1:55 - 1:50.
Hello all, I just got my email, and I've been accepted!
Im a first time half marathoner and would like to ask a question, how does the GNR course compare to other HM courses? Is it fast?
