who's in?? :-D
PQ nice to see you the other day.
You looked 'on a mission' so didn't want you to break your stride.
And you Nam
I was on mile 9 of 10 so on a mission to get back to my car !
What shoes are people suggesting???
Road shoes ok or XC shoes? I have some Salomons which are lovely in grass & mud but if there's long stretches on road in between I'd be reluctant to wear them.
I'm getting a bit worried about this race now...
You be fine!
Race number and map/route arrived today
It talks about 2 "hills" and lots of "undulations" - I dont know how they are defining the line, there though!
I am very worried about this race......I cant do a flat 5 miles.....never mind hilly ones WTF was I thinking of? Do you think they will wait for me to walk/crawl round?
TT they are probably going to be grateful for all the help they can get - seems to be lots of bits changing tracks etc - so I will get lost, I am sure
Nam - they recommend XC or cross trainers because it is "multiterrain". Most of it is in the park, except for 1 mile which includes a linking section of pavement(apparently)

None of this talk... we've got until the end of the month... you can do 4 miles now and you can do 5 miles then.... !!
We can drag each other round...
Well 1st post on here so hello everyone!
Looking to do this as my 1st event in about two and half years. Currently struggling on 3 to 4 miles.
So if you see a fat bloke huffing and puffing on the hills give me a shout.
Hang in there!If you can run a mile,you can run a thousand!
Set yourself a realistic goal.Talk about it.Seek advice.Then just go out and do it!!!
With you all the way!!!
You can huff and puff at the back with me
Yes Nam dear, but you did 6+ the other day....you could end up draggin me rather a lot
Er... hun thos were 6 very flat miles with lots of little stops for crossing roads, pedestrian crossings, letting cars past and the steepest hill being Cathays Terrace (>>snort<<), so I reckon these 5 will take me AT LEAST as long if not longer...
I'll huff at the back!!
Woo hoo we can have a "huffing at the back club"
Thanks for the comments.
Done a few events in my time (Corus Wesh runs 2004 & 2005, 2004 Cardiff Half marathon and a couple of inter works things) but sort of forgot about things for the last 2 years. Just getting back into it and finding 3 miles a slog.
I need to just get on with it I know.
Best foot forward etc.
Got my number... 183...
Guess I'm committed now...
Hi Katie.... I'm fine, Barking is too... Praying for nice weather for London... not too hot but no rain... I reckon waterlogged Rio's costume would be quite heavy.
Barking and I did the Cancer Canter on Sunday which didn't go very well for me at all, thanks to my neighbour ringing me out of bed at 3:45am pished as a fart, asking for her spare door key which I keep for her. Then couldn't get back to sleep for ages... then slept in and ran it on no food... it was freezing.... joints sore from all the standing around in the cold, but then overheating at 3k... nightmare...
Next race can only be better...
