Cant believe the news from Boston!!!! Hope no one, knows any one taking part!! Its a sad day for the world of running

Nicola was running Boston. Hopefully she's safe and sound.

Hi - sorry never posted on this thread before but just wanted to assure you that Nicola and her family are safe and well. I'm sure she'll be along to tell you in good time, but I just wanted to let you know. Thanks for your concern .

16/04/2013 at 08:33

God yes, so she was and thank you Tiny Runners 85 for the update and no need to say sorry this thread is for any one and time.

16/04/2013 at 10:52
That's good to hear that Nicola and her family are ok, thanks for letting us know.

I guess it's just horrid knowing that others in Boston aren't ok. The news last night was awful.

THanks everyone.  Being a fellow Lancashire lass I'll probably join in with this thread, as you seem like a good bunch .  But it just feels too trivial today to be chatting about training and racing considering what's happened.  Feel so empty today.  I'll pop back along at some point. Take care.

It certainly was Lou, i was in shock about it , i just could believe that you would do that and then shock turned to anger.

Your welcome any time Tiny R and we pleased that Nicola is ok, she not just one of us on here she is one of our running community and i doubt there is a runner in the world that wasnt annoyed and saddened by what happened.

Lets all keep our fingers crossed the London lot and hope its well.

Had a nice run around Southport after a work event, i ran on the beach for quite a bit, until i hit the pair, and that was hard going and then i ran long some sand dunes on my way back, which cuts my legs up lol so yer.....lesson learned there!!

This is routhly what i ran, but being lazy i didnt bother mapping hte beach or the dunes, just the roads along them, however, if you run it your clearly come across entry to the beach and i doubt your miss the dunes along by the lake :

I also ran along the grass along marine drive, rather than the pavement, just to make it a tad harder, Does anyone else tack;e greass verges  or is it just me ?

Any who, thought id share the route, just in case anyone else fancied taking it on.

Ive now entered the Fleetwodd 10Mile, is anyone else running it ?

Ok mind made up.ive entered the manchester marathon cant wait now. a field of 8000 should be a really good my son running as well with me so thats made it even better for me.hes 6 mins to catch my pb of 3.43
19/04/2013 at 10:01

Nice one Rick, best of luck and dont let your son catch ya

19/04/2013 at 11:41

I am entered for the Fleetwoood 10M.

Focus this year has been away from marathons and main aim is to get some good times from 5k - 10 miles. Been training pretty well since December so looking to get a good time at Fleetwood. Luckily getting in good practice running in the wind!

19/04/2013 at 13:48

Well done Rick, i hope it goes ok so good luck to you and your son for that one.

Hello Max! I'll to let you know my number if i find it out before hand and say hello...

Yes the wind is quite strong down that way, i found that out on my run around Southport yesterday and when i did the Windmill run a few years ago. Should make it interesting. Are you based on the coast ?

19/04/2013 at 21:49
Your Southport run sounds good sj- you're brave tackling the sanddunes. If ever you fancy a long run around there you can continue along the beach/coast road up to formby to see the red squirrels. I used to do that on my bike when I was younger.

Good luck with your marathon training Rick! Hope the weather is better than last year's (which made Preston look dry).

Fleetwood sounds a good race- at least coastal ones are always flat. My next race is unexpectedly the Manchester 10k as I won a place. I'm going to officially start my training again tomorrow at parkrun as I've had a bit of lull.

Enjoy the sunshine this weekend! It feels like spring might actually be here.

Red Squirrels, why didnt you say sooner :P he he - Well if i have a meeting down that way again, i will take your advice. It was a nice run, but tough going on that beach and grass section and yes the crazy ssand dune experiemnet he he, but im sure it will do me good

Manchester 10k hey! Im put off by their crazy stages starts, but as you won a place why not hey!! So how did you win a place ? Are you parkrunner of the month again ? :P

I am not at parkrun today, which any minute now, your find out. I swtiched my long run to today as i could watch the full marathon show. #Loser

Hope everyone has some great runs this weekend.
