Ran in this a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it (apart from the last 1k!). Think I might go for it again this time.

Any other takers?

Yep...I'm doing this one, hopefully!! Was supposed to do it last year, but had to pull out because of injury. Hope to manage it this time though, and soak up some of the ambience of the dreaming spires (or was it perspiring dreams?!).
See you there!

Hoping to do this one. I think the correct term for Oxford is the 'City of dreaming cyclists' (love it really). Anyone going in fancy dress? It seems to be quite popular looking at previous years photos. Wonder when their web site is going to be finished.

Yeah, I'm a local so it's got to be done!

In fancy dress?

Did it last year and am booked in again. Really enjoyed this one and had a lovely afternoon in Oxford afterwards.

Will running in fancy dress give me a good excuse for a cr*p time?

Specially if you go as Pooh Bear! (just spotted your pic)

But that's what I really look like, RLTW!

I thought I might dress up as a human being.

Did this last year, really enjoyed it. Not sure if I can make it this year yet.
20/02/2006 at 22:35
TMW, that would be a shame!

How are you?
20/02/2006 at 22:36
Short, fat, hairy legs huh? Try a costume with long lean legs. How bout batman - at least he has underwear!!
20/02/2006 at 22:38
RLTW, are you saying I am not a cute, cuddly and lovable little hunny bear?

I am hurt to the quick...

Pretty good ST. Everything going well, running going very well at the moment. Want to do T & G but 3 weeks after my marathon (Belfast) may be a bit soon.

Are you well?
20/02/2006 at 22:44
Sounds like it's all going great for you, TMW.

T and G is 4 weeks after FLM, so I should be all right - I think that's about the same gap as last year. I'm training much better for FLM than last year and enjoying my running a lot.

I'm well, thanks. Climbed Kilimanjaro last month - great experience! I like to think it was cross-training for FLM ;-D

I'm sure you're all those things and more - Wouldn't dream of deliberately causing you to sob -you just give the appearance of being a little - hmm! athletically challenged (if you really are Pooh Bear)!
20/02/2006 at 22:46
Good recovery, RLTW!

I'm not really Pooh Bear. But I guess you knew that anyway.


I am short though. But not fat and don't have hairy legs (well, not since yesterday anyway...)

Sorry, Hi TMW. Just a little frivolous banter. Dare I wear a green ribbon now?
How about we all go dressed to match or as a theme? I guess it depends if you guys want to get PB's. I just hope to keep running!
20/02/2006 at 22:52
Frivolous banter is entirely acceptable, don't you think?

We wore green ribbons at the Bristol half last October and it worked well.

Suggest a theme, then, and see what people think. I am not bothered about a PB, so happy to give it due consideration.
