Camaraderie Rules ;o)
See you all next year. Sounds from a brief skim of last years thread that new route is a winner? Plenty of people PB'ing.
I ache but it was worth it!
had a bit of a shock yesterday as it was the first time i've ever felt that i could quite happily stop during a race and started thinking never again (damn those quieter sections of the course!), so so glad i didn't...looking forward to next year already
Just put last post on old thread
Can't wait for next year Panad Glad you didn't stop for a while there was using seeing you in the distance to carry on!!!
now you mention it that may have been part of the problem TR38 - when i dropped back from you and TRex I was using the sight of you being just in front to keep going, trying not to let the gap get larger, before you dropped back and TRex opened up the gap and i eventually lost sight of him, that's when it got a lot harder.... (nothing to do with having run 17+miles already of course )

. Anyway, the only way is up..and up Brer
Just read your race report on the 2010 thread - can't believe you sub-4d with those issues, awesome!
was about a week after last years race that this years entries opened i think, so not long......
My first and last marathon this year eh.
Maybe just one more next year to prove I can do 4hr 30min....or is it the wine talking.
Another classic set of challenging weather conditions this year. The only thing I haven't experienced in this race in the last 4 years is snow!!!
Will also have to try to beat my 2009 time: I missed it this year by 10 seconds - gutting! Aiming for sub-3:50 in 2011.....

I had a 'first and last' marathon in 2005.
Couldn't run a mile when I entered but after training , hobbled round the Cardiff Marathon in 5.37.
One year later and I finished the same marathon in 4.31.
I've now done 11 (including three Snowdonias) with a PB of 4.17 .
Damn addictive this marathon running
Saturday's marathon was my 8th in 4 years (and my 4th Snowdonia) - it is, without doubt, the best marathon by far and it is the only marathon that I will do every year - I guess I am lucky to have it on my doorstep?
I'll be there - this event is one of my "regulars". Don't know in what capacity, though - let the side down a bit this year after 3 consecutive 3:59s - a 4:11.
I'm not letting the wine or TRex talk me into this one....but I'll quite happily string along for the ride on the forum because I like you all lots!!! Panad...lovely to meet you and what a cracking time!!! you must be chuffed! TRex...you're a true gent and it was lovely to meet you too. TR38 well done matey!!! that hail was something wasn't it!!!
