...and the beat goes on...
Dannirr.. she has given me the phone number for her colleague who will be at the finish.. I will pass this to ATM.. she has asked to be kept up to date with progress and they will make an annoucement as we approach the finish... local TV and press will also be notified...
yer_maj... what is your hairdresser on...? There is nothing sexier than a MILF over 35...! Women just get better and better with age... I would much rather date a 45 yr old than a 25 yr old... (errm... subject to written consent from Mrs DV..!!)
He's a 32 year old man...who has recently split up with a girl 10 years younger than him. I suspect he had images of Mrs Robinson in his head and didn't get what his fantasy had delivered....
He thinks I'm as old as Methuselah
The pertinent bit of information missing in your last expression of opinion DV, is your own age - all these things are relative you know
From your love of running you must be between 32 and 35 years of age.
So now you have a dodgy knee as well TD- What are going to be like at 50?
Yer maj- sorry I missed your querstion. In my long runs I'm just taking a drink. When I get up to really big miles (e.g 20+) next Feb I may take a gel or a shot blocks on my long run. I've tried them all, no particular preference.
Mr Maj no 1 was 5 years younger than me. The current Mr Maj is 8 years older. I was 27 when I met no 1 and 33 when I met no 2, having never had a relationship with a man older than me. I know which one I prefer
Hmmm I might give shotblocks a go when training for Paris - I like the High 5 gels and so does my stomach but no matter what I do, I seem to get sticky which annoys me!
@Yer_maj - I'd give jelly cubes (rowntrees) a go...they're the same as cliff shot bloks and cheaper.
I've always had a thing for older men!! Girlz dad is 13 years older than me, and future Mr Kaz 9 years older.
YM - I was just about to offer to send you shot bloks(about 10 packs) but on a quick check they are past there date! oops!
I prefer jelly beans. Much easier on my delicate stomach!
Just caught up with everyone's posts and advice re: Paris - thanks guys x
Will seriously look at Paris then - what is this medical certificate they ask for?
Karen - everybody has to have one, it's just a one page form signed by your GP to say you're fit to run. It does have to be signed and stamped by the surgery though or it'll be rejected.
Some GPs will charge to do it - some won't if you are running for charity. I took a different approach - booked an appointment so my GP could actually meet me before he signed it, in the meantime suffered a nasty dose of norovirus and went to the appointment when still feeling pretty ill. GP was so appalled that he signed with lightening speed and kicked me out without charging me before I infected half of Cardiff
Ha ha - nice one yer_maj!
So where would everyone recommend for cheap accom in Paris for next year's marathon then? And what is the weather usually like for the Paris marathon?
you guys ... give me anyone who can make me laugh till I cry and I am smitten, they can be any age they want (although over 16 would be nice), I work with some young folk that are old before their time and some old folk that are still young. I have been round a bit, but still blush when I get embarrassed, still get crushes on people, still put my shoes on without undoing the laces and squeeze the toothpaste in the middle of the tube, oh and wear my new running shoes out of the shop
Don't you think running keeps us young? All that marketing guff about facecreams, when a good work out that keeps the blood pumping, the skin pink and gets us drinking loads of water can't be bad. Rant over that is all
yer_maj wrote (see)
Well now....drum roll....I just did 5k and nothing fell off. Nothing hurt then, nothing hurts now but by 'eck I feel like I've lost some fitness having not run for 2 weeks
YAY, the list fairy is back!!! and there's lots of newbies, FUN!
Dannir - thanks for the update on "mid LSR baby" (for the newbies to the forum it's a VERY premature baby that Dannir delivered halfway through a 20 miler. Ran in 10 miles, delivered baby, ran home. Yup, it get's different in here).
DLR - hee hee hee, lovin' the new version of a stair master!
so much happening on the thread today! I had a chat with mates over the weekend and it's looking like london in 2014 (friend is turning 50)...so that leaves me open for a spring marathon...which one should I do? I'm working on a flag for the support crew. So far I've got thoughts about adding: the route, abstracted bristol chart, cake, knitting needles in blue and white cross formation, eiffel tower & arc de tiumph (but that might be a bit obvious), levitating runner...anything else?
I dare you to knit a stool chart....
You forgot a Dragon
oh yeah and Karen, if you let us know where you're based I'm sure there is probably someone on the thread who is close by and can take you out for a toodle (nice easy run) and/or chat to answer any questions you have. I'm in London but can't get out until after amsterdam.
