why can't I start a forum discussion
I was going to say why can't I start a forum discussion for this event ? but I can now, so here goes -
my number has finally arrived - luckily I'm not superstitious - I'm no 13
How early do you have to enter to be no 1 ? I entered back in February
Mine arrived today, but I only got round to entering a couple of weeks ago!
I think to be number one, you have to know someone. Kenny Dalgleish runs with no 7, I think - presumably his old shirt number ( a footy fan will correct me, I'm sure)
apparently, to be number 1 you have to be related to someone.
Kenny Dalglish doesn't run it anymore - he only did the first 2 because they were in aid of his wife's charity - and yes, that was his shirt number
see my blog www.running4rwanda.com for a picture of Kenny and me taken after 2005 Santa Dash
Ho Ho Ho
Daggers is a legend! anyway, he started his own run along with the Alan Ball charity last year, think its round stanley park, or Sefton park, entrants either get a red number 7 shirt (his Liverpool) or a blue 8 (Balls everton shirt)
I was going to run the santa dash this year after doing it last year, but i wont have chance to go and get the santa suit from over in Liverpool, last year wasnt too bad i sent my wife when she had a day off, now though it just isnt possible.
Did the santa dash last year and it was great.
Had to get the train over from the Wirral in the morning, and was feeling a bit nervous getting on with my santa suit on ( lucky i was the only one on the platform) but when the train pulled into the station it was just full of santas. A very funny sight. Sadly I can't do it this year as I'm going to a party the night before and wont be back in time.
Did a warm up to the Santa Dash today the RNLI REINDEER 10k at Knowsley Hall - very nice location.
The sun was out, but it was sub-zero temperatures all the way round, will have to train up and down ASDA's freezer aisle for next year - looked like RUDOPLH time i finished - but had a good day.
Am sure the santa suit will keep me warm enough for the dash - does one wear 'Long Johns' underneath or will me boxies and 1973 Everton Top suffice!
Lets hope the weather is kind to us next Sunday.
Lovely day here in Formby. Let's hope it's as good tomorrow. Good luck to anyone running
