For any newbies...  entries open approx mid-September.   First come, first served.   Costs go up as the number of places reduces.....

For new people considering running the Paris Marathon, you need to understand that this is a long running thread that gets updated every year but has been going on for many years. So if you feel like you are dropping in on an old conversation, you are, however, you should know that we've always thought of the Paris thread as "The Friendly Thread".

Please join in, introduce yourself and don't be shy! For newbies, feel free to ask questions. There are people here who are multi-ear veterans of running the mara (& other events) in Paris.

There are people here who are still in never again marathon mentality and dont't really have any business hanging out in a marathon thread Like TD says this thread is for everyone, there's no cliquiness here and we like new people!

Anyway I am loving the new interior design, the sofas are very comfy. So much so that I may have a little snooze. After this amazon tennis that is - go Murray!

Eggy. Cracking improvement to your HM PB mate. You are on fire this year. Really, well done!

Marathon Maus. I am so happy you have a diagnosis that makes sense and a viable treatment plan. I hope you can become aware of the early triggers for the migraines and are able to take actions to minimise the problems they cause. Stay strong lady. And as for P&D, soak up the knowledge they provide and then right-size it to your own domestic situation and running experience. You don't have to conform to what they say, just apply it intelligently for yourself.

Am delighted to say I managed my longest run today since Paris. 51 days after my op and thanks to Neil Belgium's pleasant conversation, I managed to clock up 20kms. Feel like a good sleep now. Blasted Olympics keeping me awake though

Oh not the stool fibre intake is just fine!

Oh congratulations eggy, that's a huge improvement! And well done TD on your run, fastest healer ever. MM I am glad that they found out what was going wrong, wish you all the best for moving on from this point.

I've definitely got 2 ears

Nice one Tricky - that's a big test!

Maus - very glad t hear that you have something that you can work with 

I have two new kittens.  They're 6 weeks old, Maine Coon/Bengal cross and they are already causing havoc after less than 24 hours.  A wee bit young to be away from Mum but she rejected them so we dicided we'd take over the extra care they'll need for the next few weeks.  The resident Madame is deeply unimpressed

In on the first page (i hope!)

MM thats great news, and Eggy great time. Been watching the sailing, felt a bit sorry for the Danish guy!

We'll always have Paris...

( '2012 is my last go at this..'...has morphed into '2013: 'could be the year of the sub-4'. It helps,having the attention-span of a ....Oh, look! Tennis!)

Well done, Eggy. * And I've decided to marry you off to my daughter.No need to meet.It would just complicate things...*

RS! I thought  you were all ' UK-citizen ' now?  * I love this 'nationalism-meltdown..'..*

Just to be clear, I was screaming for team GB when there were no NZ crews or Nz wasn't doing too well (aka the quad).

Ohhhhh shinny new...FUN...let's take it out for a spin and get some dirt on here...yer_maj: are the two new pussies a bit much action for you and Mr Maj? (NB: newbies, it does degenerate a little but there's someone responsible who brings it back...most times)

I can safely say that the weather forecasters got it COMPLETELY wrong for surrry today.  Was supposed to be scattered showers and mostly sunny.  It wasn't!!!  I managed 61kms on the bike with 4 hills, one with 20% to 10% and then for fun back up to 20%.  I'm stooooffed.

A thread wedding...and on the front page as well.  Excellent....will we wear lycra?

05/08/2012 at 16:20

had to post that before I'd finished.  Goooo murray!

Eggy - YAY, awesome PB.

MM - YAY, for a diagnosis!  how about a nice easyish goal while you get the medication sorted?  series of 5kms or 10 kms?

TD - YAY, for the run!

There's sooooo much happy going around at the moment it's brilliant!!!  3 golds for GB last night were breathtaking.
