Cameraderie Rules! SNOD
Got back from wales last night after having an extented break with the family. Well i didn't get the time i was after obviously not enough hill work done in training, but i did have a great time despite the weather again and it was good to meet some of you guys during the race and afterwards in padarn lake.
Trex- thanks for recomending the vaynol arms, we spent the last 2 nights in there enjoying good food and great beer.
I wasn't sure about doing this again next year as it is a 600 mile round trip and my poor kids have been like drowned rats for the last 2 years waiting for me to finish, but there is something about this race that makes you want to keep coming back.How many of this years formites are going back next year ?
Not next year RR, but I feel I will be back...
....and I thought the man with the green jacket was only supporting me..... lol! He was great..he gave some really uplifting positive advice... he shouted at me to keep my rhythm going just like it was...and that I was going well, and it really helped my confidence
.....and I'm glad someone said he kept turning up because I was beginning to think i was getting de ja vu....
Well done everyone!
Tre - I've done Stratford a couple of times and many don't like the greenway but it's dishpan flat after a climb so the last 6 are just fine for me. I never tire of the scenery seeing something new each time - the thatched cottages are before the main hill , through long marston and dotted occasionally through the course. the course is two laps the second longer or at least different as you only run the full greenway once.
It's like marmite - love it or hate it especially the greenway. i don't mind and it's local. Nice weather too often very sunny.
I'm in for next year RR and a few others have already entered.
Is it too early for a list T Rex, ducks to avoid FR
I would say it is never to early for a list Tom S !
I am begining to weaken already about coming back next year, what will i tell the kids, i promised them it would be sunny this year.
I'm selling it ! tre4 is depressed by the greenway - the first year I did it the weather weeks before had been raining and cold so on the day everyone dressed for the rain that had been expected. However after an hour the sun came out and it was the hottest day of the year up till then, the final flat 6 miles of the greenway looed like the retreat from Moscow - people walking, sitting , discarded euipment , energy belts, coats hats gloves. I could have been made for euipmnet for years had I collected it all!
I'll do Stratford as it's local , lots of people I known haven't got into VLM , I'll be looking for more LDWA events next year too. I enjoyed Robin Hood marathon this year so I'll do that in September too. it's making the time for these marathons.
Steve Z - After the way you tore the course up this year i expect you will be leading the 3.30 group next year
jason d - A promise of good weather, i am getting close to hitting the race entry button.
i think you mostly missed my sarcasm ng / mh
i'm doing it anyway
ta ta from me lovely snodders..i'm off to the dark side permanently now ie snod 2010
see ya there !
