How`s the training going?
RW - It's tonight S4C at 22.05.. freeview or sky.
I was going to wait till I'd seen the film before signing off the thread so I can congratulate JB etc. on their camera presence (and also brag if I got a good part myself he he) but looks like most are leaving anyway so hasta la vista.... may not do SNOD09 but am aiming for an ultra or two...
RESULTS and PHOTO`S here :-
mmmmmmmmmmm, someone mention food?
Anyway I'm not here, shhh!! When you all decide where to run and post next, put a link on here then I can find you all when I'm out of hiding again.
snowdon we have a problem
if like me you ran with a jacket over your top and race number you may not get a photo..just tried and thats whats happening i guess
Me too CD.
Plenty of photos of you floating around CD !!
yes thats the one
but for me they wont be able to locate a photo as my number wasn't showing
though i do know the photographer so i'll call him
yeah me too Suddy. Give it a day or two maybe. I had to carry my number for the last couple of miles (wind blew it off), but definitely held it up (over my face) for the cameras. Looking forward to those shots
Why am I still here? So much for that resolution then.
Do I get the prize for getting closest to the target time in the 4hr group? Chip time 4hrs 4secs (PB by 6mins). I think the wind helped.
Well done to everyone on an epic achievement in interesting conditions. Sorry I didn't meet up with the 4hr group before the start. By the time I'd jogged up to the start at 10:15 there was no discernible group at the intersection. I only got to link up with T Rex long after we'd finished. I recall a green vested vegetarian cyclist and athlete slowly overtaking me in the latter stages of the run. I wondered if it might have been T Rex but I had nothing more in the engine to close the few yards and ask. Turned out it was. Good to see you TR in Pete's Eats after the delayed and long-winded presentation.
A few statistics for you. My fastest mile was up to mile 5 (6:44, downhill and wind assisted). Slowest was up to mile 22 (13:57, uphill, tired, walking and wind hindered).
I loved the friendliness of the event, and all the supporters out in the wind and rain cheering us on. The family with the young kiddies handing out jelly babies shortly before the right turn to the big climb was a godsend. Two jelly babies plucked from the palm of the little 'un were just what I needed to give me strength.
It was a very enjoyable day. I will be back in 2009 for a 4th consecutive try, with sub 4 firmly in my thoughts.
Next major one for me is Round Rotherham 50 in December. Anyone else? There might be a better chance of meeting up, with the smaller field.
