Whos has run this before ... what is it like?
Training (in earnest?) starts next Monday. But then again, the wonderful Hal Higson says 'Remember - Monday is always a rest day'. (I'll second that!). So I guess I'm going to be all up & raring to go next Tuesday! If I was as diligent at my training as I am doing all the planning & making relevant lists about fitness/nutrition - I'll have finished Dublin before I've started it!!
Good luck to all!
Week 1 was a few weeks ago for me - I'm aiming for the 7th Oct for my first, remember.
This earlyish start is ironic as I did the Beast of Bryn on Saturday, in biblical conditions. All we were lacking were the plagues of locusts!!! It was 15 mile trail race with steep, steep climbs, precipitous descents, in deep mud, torrential rain, floods and gale force winds (fallen trees, the lot!). It was going to be my rule of thumb - if I managed to do it, I could definitely manage another double. So hey-ho, here we go, again! Next week, I'll do a gentle 10 miler.
Where are you going so hot, Emma? We're going to Malcesine, Northern Italy in August which will probably be too hot for me, also.
Is there a dedicated Dublin 2012 thread anywhere (Events??) can't seem to find one and I don't want to start one as I'm still hmming and haaing about doing Dublin this year...I did it 2008 and 2009 and a bunch of my friends are talking about doing it this year.
MrGFB and I are doing the Midlands HM in Portlaoise in August...and I figured it'd be good to keep the momentum going for another full marathon.
Is there anyway of transfering this thread to Events? Think it may be the best option to have it under that catagory - I'm sure there's plenty more people signed up for Dublin 2012 but are missing the forum?
Seems very quiet.
I agree - there is normally a thread in events...why don't you start one Puffling
Not very computer literate & have know idea what to do! Perhaps I'll leave that to you GFB & then you'll have to come to Dublin?!! (no pressure - he he!)
GFB! Lovely to hear from you and great to hear that you and MrGFB are still racing. I know why you don't want to start the Dublin 2012 thread - the jinx on the thread starter not getting to the start!
For other Dublin newbies I did Dublin in 2006 (can't believe that's 6 years ago) and unfortunately have been hit with one thing or another so haven't done more than halfs since. However, ever hopeful. All that's been said so far is true - not hilly, weather usually ok, not too hot or cold and support generally pretty good. Hope you all enjoy it.
Oh sweet!! NRG2!! How lovely to hear from you again!! (I'm tempted to start the thread...if no one does within the week I will)
Just a boing to say Puffling has started a thread for Dublin in Events
Cheers CSC - never thought to notify anyone here.
