Camaraderie Rules ;o)
I wonder how you recognised Tattoed Runner Chimney?!
Thankfully my wife is picking up the numbers on the way home later - she will fit the timing chip for me - I can never do it and it is a bit embarrasing asking someone to attach the chip for me when I have to pick it up on the day of the race!! Apparently they didn't want to use the chips built into the numbers on account of the number of runners who wear other tops over their racing vest given the weather in recent years!!
I have had the last of my pasta "creaton" - sick of the stuff now - no more pasta for at least a month after tomorrow - Indian takeaway and a couple of cans of cold beer tomorrow night me thinks!?
Excellent news everyone according to Derek Brockway on Wales Today a depression is arriving for Western Parts of Wales by early tomorrow morning with strengthening winds and all that lovely rain associated with it.
Now it is not expected to be as miserable as three years ago when it rained bullets all day but runners beware it will not be especially warm at only around 13-14C and with the wind and rain it going to feel colder.
In 2008 the mountains of the llanberis Pass could not cope with the ferocity of the rain it was that bad but atleast it was warm at 17C which was mild for the end of October.
Vest and Shorts weather i fear not, windproofs and tried and trusted clothing that you know will not let you down in poor weather.
Just goes to show one day it can be gorgeous in Llanberis as it is today but this is ERYRI and those mountains attract the weather like a magnet.
I bet it will remain fine here on the coast tomorrow but even i noticed a difference in temperature from Llandudno to Llanberis.
The sun was shining beautifully in both places this afternoon but it felt noticeably cooler in llanberis and with poor weather almost guaranteed its going to feel cooler still.
What will Bwlch Y Groes throw at us tomorrow.
Anyway my 17th Snowdonia marathon will be run in traditional weather FINGERS CROSSED
I will be standing on the start line as always special vest with no number on it.
If you spot me please say hello because chatting on forums like this to people you have no idea what they look like is funny,
Have an enjoyable race
Good to catch up with some forumites yesterday- and hopefully more today!
Weather awful, but not a bad day- apart from falling twice on the mud and hurting my arm!! Got another GFA and finished in 3:13.29
Weather was VILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Off for food now!
After breaking down just after leaving home this morning, leaving the garmin in my car and having an awful interview with S4C (safe to say they won't be showing it!) I was very pleased with the run - just under 2h55m I think. I felt in good nick before the race, but didn't expect that. Great to finish just behind stonemonkey who like me has failed to go sub 3 at Snowdonia in the last 5 years
Llongyfarchiadau/congratulations again Rou - really pleased for you (although I couldn't help laugh at watching you reaction to that piece of sports bar which you got afte the race!!)
JB- well done
Gobi- Padarn Lake Hotel- lounge bar around 7 I think
*for you mate*
