I would have liked to enter the Shrewsbury marathon but i entered a marathon the day before so no way could i manage a marathon the day after ( that said, i know a couple of people that are doing it!! )  perhaps i should try a recovery run of half marathon instead lol

so has anyone actually entered it yet, i know it is 4 laps ( 2 laps for HM )

btw how are peoples parkruns doing

there are some new parkruns taking place in Telford, Wolverhampton and also Kingsbury Water Park if anyone didnt know

Happy New Year All!!

New Year Missions 2013:

1. lose weight

2. run more

3. avoid injury

If I do #3 should be able to do #2 and #1 but doing too much of #2 means #3 might be a struggle...

ahh Yeti hope you stay injury free

Hi guys, just popping in as I've moved into the area and want to find out about local races.  I'm not running this year, but want to get some idea lined up for my return to running next year.

Yeti, are you the one I met a few years ago at the GSR?  Good to see a familiar face around these parts

21/01/2013 at 09:16

SuperCaz, loads of races............................where to begin.


28/01/2013 at 21:26

SuperCaz - yes that's me!  welcome to the Midlands! You'll usually find me at Cannon Hill parkrun if you fancy popping down there sometime...

Spence - looks like I spoke too soon. Recent snow meant lots of walking/trudging and pushing cars uphill. Result = return of swollen, painful knees

28/01/2013 at 21:34
Oh no, that's not good
29/01/2013 at 09:12

how are you ladies doing

29/01/2013 at 13:13
*looks about for a lady*
29/01/2013 at 22:04

seen any yet Spence?

hey Chris, how's things?

29/01/2013 at 22:05

I've got a swollen knee, but I have me a new Garmin and I've entered 2 races this year. Best get fixed then!

Not yet Yeti!!

What have you entered?

30/01/2013 at 09:11

Good thanks Yeti.

Worcester half for me ! Kenilworth half and Arden 9.


30/01/2013 at 11:19
Wyre Forest 10k in March and Brum Half in Oct

Havent entered the Brum Half, how was it last year ?

May be doing the BBCHM too, for the fifth time


30/01/2013 at 12:52

um, last year's Bham Half for me was, as a spectator, good fun!  unfortunately the guy who died was a friend of mine, so this year it'll be in his memory...whether walking or running...

If I could be sure of being fit enough for BBCHM I'd consider doing it again, but I think I should just leave sleeping dogs lie...
