I sent my entry off yesterday

Hi Bob  Have I sent you your number yet?  I am fairly up to date but have decided this stamped addressed envelope lark has its drawbacks. 

You wouldn't believe the different shapes and sizes that I have received (not to mention the recycle conscious ones who have glued togetehr old envelopes to make a whole!).  I do worry on some whether the postage is enough but I cannot get to the post office for them all.

Still plenty of time for people to enter  though.

Right, having done a 5k in an aquathlon today have decided I need to do something more me

So I must remember to send off my entry. Is it a donation thing again? (or is that a different race )

It's a donation thing again so much more civilised (look forward to your entry)

Ultra AJH, despite your placid -looking  avatar you have the word ultra in your name. Why do I suspect you've done more than 5K on a regular basis? Or is that what you swim?

Oh I put ultra there after the first one but am only up to 5 . I find the O15 a lot harder!

Am actually going to attempt to swim 5k in the swimathon thing next month and I do believe that I will not ever want to swim any further than that!

AJH - If you need to do more miles come and join the some of us D88 at the A20 17.3 mile pathway race the next day. Doug and Scottish Bill are doing both races.

Oh! I will think about it, it may be that I need to do bike miles instead.

No rest for the wicked

I have to say, the A20 17.3 mile race is not a name that makes you want to do it

I sent the entry form yesterday, hope it's not too late.

I believe the donation is fine, unfortunately I couldn't afford more this month and I have no idea what is the usual amount. Also I have never used the cheque before so I believe everything is fine and correct

I am really looking forward to this race.

Thats good, the chances of me, a cheque, 2 envelopes and 2 first class stamps being in the same place at the same time is remote.....

Sorry, have been on holiday. Yes got my number (86) I'm sure I sent a decent sae with it.

Ultra AJH  - It would be good ultra training doing the two races.

and it's Mothers Day

Hi Bob - it has been quite enlightening seeing the different shapes and sizes of sae's that have come my way. Some are so large I could fit the kitchen sink in and for at least one I have had to fold the number in half. Hope you enjoy it anyway.

Can I check that entries are available on the day? Not convinced Royal Mail will deliver my entry by the closing date otherwise. I did a race entitled Tough Ten recently although this sounds an altogether 'Tougher' 15.
14/03/2009 at 18:29
Yes but if you email me the form in advance it would help with the compilation of the results

What shoes are best??

Spikes, trainers or off road ( studs)

I might wear trail shoes, though I am fairly sure I have worn road before with no probs...... if it stays dry this week it should be fine.

Right, I am sending my form 1st class tomorrow.
