Just wondering if anyone else is in for this?

It'll be my first half marathon, but unlike a week ago when I would have been slightly awestruck at the step to enter a half marathon, I'm now seeing it as good training for the Kielder Marathon in October.

What a difference a week makes...

You should join a club

I did.

The Vegetarian Cycling and Athletic Club. It has many things to argue in it's favour - it's a club, for one, there's a club vest (yay!) and the people are spread all over, so I don't need to start making excuses for not making club training nights. 

Virtually perfect for the vest-wearing, calendar-blind vegetarian about town.

Do they run the Harrier League (cross country)?

Don't know - I'll have a look at their site...

I don't think they do - pity, great experience and excellent training opportunity for longer runs

I had thought about joining Northumberland Fell Runners, who do more hills and stuff, but I kind of got round to the VCAC first - the whole first claim / second claim confuses me hugely, so I don't know if I even could join NFR now, or what...

Yes, you can.a couple of my club mates are also in NFR. They only run fell races in NCF vests. We are on facebook and website
