Anybody planning on doing this?

Nice course, but not flat! Have run the route a few times, although have never done the race.

BTW - Fat Bald Bloke please do not enter this race. It should be nice weather in June, and I don't need you jinxing it OK?

Might make a good 1st half if I'm ever fit enough ;-)

Hi M

You know it makes sense!
23/02/2003 at 18:21

Forgot to ask before. Why the tiger?

Now you see thats a very long story.

Suitably intrigued.

(Gets comfy cushion and drink, and waits for the answer)

Very nice place, NOT very flat course!
23/02/2003 at 21:24
Tell me about it. Did the route again yesterday.
23/02/2003 at 21:26
This is one of those halves that you do for the scenery not the time.
23/02/2003 at 21:30
Yeah, I have to agree with you on that one.
23/02/2003 at 22:35
Having second thoughts now - need a nice flat course to give me every possible chance of making it to the finish (not too concerned about time just yet - it'll be a PB anyway!)

I thought you were off to bed M?

Last year this was run on Jubilee weekend and was scorching hot so even with my habit of finding events in the rain it should be a good run.

M don't let them put you off it may not be flat but it is not really hilly. It is a good sociable run good atmosphere and I would recomend it plus the tee shirt is one of the best. I still wear mine from last year.

FS good luck for Oakley have finally entered Ashby so should be well tierd by the time we next train (just getting the excuse in early)

where is the spell check on this

Hi FBB. Don't know if I'm going to be ready for this. Am definitley planning a half in June but may benefit from a few extra weeks and doing Borehamwood.

Good luck at Ashby

Good luck at Asby FBB. Have just answered your email.

Hi M. Just sent you one too.

I've been pondering whether I should enter this as my first half. I'm not sure if it's abit too ambitious as I'm not up to that sort of mileage yet but it would give me something to aim for.

KS There is never a good run to do as your first half. It always seems ambitious and when you get there everyone looks like they are fitter than you. But enter, run your own race. Let the forum know your number we can look out for you and encourage you on the day. You will be suprised how many of the fit looking folk come in behind you. Even I beat some of them sometimes.
10/03/2003 at 22:47
Yeah, but your one of them now FBB!

KS you should come along. You've got ages till June. I'm sure you will enjoy it.
