Hi baljc congrats and wow that is a great time to aim for.

Hoping that I at some stage i manage to get myself out and train rather that just writing about it!!!

EHN - me too. Plan for Paris starts Tuesday... I'm already carb-loading!

Currently I'm dreaming of being able to complete the following (at least) in 2013:

Jan 1st Morpeth 10k

Feb 17th  Brighton Half

March 23rd Coniston 14 

April 7th Paris Marathon

June 23rd Alnwick Half Marathon

July 14th Northumberland Coastal Run

September 15th GNR 

September 29th Berlin Marathon

After that, have to see if I can still walk!

How'd you get into the GNR?!  I signed up for the email notification but got nothing

RS - I'm a member, 2013 is my 3rd year of three.

You'll likely hear in January if you've been successful, then the charity places are released.

If you get a place through the ballot, they offer you a chance to spend a large amount of extra cash to guarantee your place for 3 years in advance. Makes me sick to give cash to BUPA but I love the run.

Glad you'd fun on hols.

hmm...I'm doubtful I'll hear but will wait and see.  Guaranteeing a place for 3 years?!?! surely they have enough people wanting to do it without offering that?

holidays were fun In a mad running, swimming, cycling blur way.

GNR is a favourite of mine (says she who deferred this year!!)

At present I just have Liverpool Half in March in my sights but intend to rectify that.

All the best with day one of the Paris training Iain -Paris marathon another great event

I love big races, and have also paid up for another 3 years guranteed entry into GNR after using up my 3rd year this year, can't wait! Nice warm up for Berlin! So far, I've also got the Great Manchester Run (did I mention I love BIG races?!) and the Leeds 10K. Will sign up for the Great Yorkshire Run when it's out.

....and here's one from the weekend with my running face on, without ears on...

You're a runner after my own heart...

..infact rather than me just telling everyone I am running Liverpool -I perhaps had better actually sign up for it. 

Orbutt & JPenno is the Mersey Tunnel 10k also on your lists??? 

22/11/2012 at 14:26

EHN - it will be.

Did it last year but didn't do as well as I wanted, so unfinished business.

22/11/2012 at 14:28

Orbutt - I have unfinished business with all of last years races!!!

22/11/2012 at 14:59

Kaz - now that I think of it.....

The greatest thing about running is, in my humble opinion, is that even if you've a great race, you always want to better it.

I may have the mentality all wrong, or maybe it's because I'm a below average runner at best, but the psychological side is, to me, so interesting.

Saw my GP today - unfortunately tells me to continue to layoff running, to let the PF settle. I've been referred for orthotics. The physio was of little use. Basically, I've put about a stone on since Berlin and am shockingly low. I may have to disobey the practitioner... I need to get back to the gym too...
