A mugs a good idea Hipps, so long as its classy and not the sort you'd find in a greasy spoon cafe. By the way, you are seriously mad, excited about Connemara next week, excited about Hastings and probably excited about a dozen more marathons in between .
T. Wells did a commemorative bottle of wine with a special label one year, sadly it didn't last very long , maybe Hastings could stretch to both, a mug and a bottle of wine...................
yeah well, i am sad like that
wine out of a mug
The Dartford Half gave one of those glass paperweight things - I quite liked it other than the fact it is scratched (my children dropped it across the track twice ), and of course that I now know it is cheap! I've alwaysreceived medals for full marathons which is good although all are merely buried in a drawer. The Sandwich haldf gave the only memento I've been disappointed with - after a hard half they gave all half, 10k and fun runners the same 'fun run' labelled medal the size of a 2p coin.
I do like the sound of this. Ran Luton last year so would be nice for a change. I take it that this course is much harder than Luton...
Yep sheep, i'm in this one too. I must be having some kind of mid life crisis, I hardly run at all for 10 years then suddenly i feel compelled to enter 2 marathons, 2 30 mile ultras and am seriously considering the London 2 Brighton 56. Maybe Alzehimers is setting in and i keep forgetting how much it hurts and how knackered i feel...............
This will be a special one though I feel, I think............... I cant remember why though .
Sunlover. It does sound like a crisis. Think I'm having one of them to.
I was looking at ultras yesterday and I notice that that Thames Tow path (Reading to Sheperton) is being run in November, I swam that, well part of the way this year. (it was a tad flooded) and thinking I want to do that again.
Maybe there should be a "Crisis Series" of runs!
blimey sunlover , are you making up for lost time ?! Thats quite impressive . Good luck to you .
Yes that pain/discomfort thing.. ..Why does it slip our minds so easily when we enter these things .I blame the online entry system myself
How far exactly did you swim CWP?
No I didn't do Arundel but are they like these 'running cubes' ?http://www.runningimp.co.uk/default.asp?cid=0&page=glass#3They were those cubes Paul, but they don't look cheap and are quite attractive. And they came in the blue box as illustrated on the site. Some medals I understand only cost pennies to produce but they are still a nice souvenir of the race. I suspect they might produce the same type of memento at the Arundel Park 10k this Sunday, which I will be running.
By the way, the Rye Summer Classic series medals were of good quality, all metal and of an imaginative design.
Sheep. The Thames was 50miles long and flooded...
what with falling over and spending a fair percentage ofthe time at least at knee deep all of it. (GRIN)
ANd as for the Entry system. Thats a good point. Ask you where you are from, and how long you will finish in, But never how much Pain do you want to be in.
Well, I'm registered. It'll be my first marathon if I actually manage to do it. I wasn't planning to even consider doing one for quite some time, but it all seemed to fit together and I figured why not aim really, really high - it is 8 1/2 months away, that's plenty of time to figure out how to run more than 4 miles in one go...
Oh, boy, what have I let myself in for?
Ah, the wonders of modern technology, Muttley! Still nice though.
Well done Tamise, looking forward to seeing you there in December. Welcome aboard.
