I so agree Alan...definitely meant to be. Have you a justgiving page? Thanks for the links for the Newry HM - im going to check out the logistics of getting the pack. I have dodged hitting the submit button for the HM series I think Ill give it a couple more days before I officially confirm that goal my times have decreased rapidly with injury so Im not sure if going public is the best thing
Alan B, that will be an emotional part of the race for you - hope you run well in your Dad's memory.
Kenny, I'm sorry to always miss Dervock - hopefully one year it won't clash with the Open Golf Championship!
Go for it Linda , there's always someone going round at a nice easy pace(me) , though I'm going to see if Alwyn will give a piggy back round some of it , should improve my time greatly
Kenny , Dervock is 1 of 5 I'm hoping to do this summer , really enjoyed it last year and the children had a ball .
Alan , that's definetly meant to be and what a fine tribute that his son will pass the door running the Belfast Marathon , good man.
Martin, we'd be some combined weight!!!
Alwyn, maybe we have the start of a new category, MV40/45(combined)
Last run over me , 4 miles on the Antrim Road at 8:40 m/m , rest time and away to Tescos to buy my body weight in fusilli and granola bars
Now Martin there's your easy pace and then there's mine ...a world of a difference Im sure, but thank you for the encouragement
Alan B you not doing the whole just giving thing...brother died of the same thing recently?
Mayo street...was born there..and the run goes up past where my front door was! would have got such a buzz going up there...
Lets hope that the crowds turn out in force to support everyone running BCM
Martin & Alwyn - Pantomine Horse springs to mind as a new category for you two!Alan - a poignant day for you on Monday and a very fitting & welcome amendment to the course. Good luck sir & run tall.That's me done also Martin - easy 3 miler tonight.. must go and look out my running vest with my name on it (that I wore only once before - BCM 2006) and see if it still fits!
Hmm , if u see a woman with a big St. Bernard dog and 5 children handing out haribo at the half way mark that's my family , like rent a crowd
Ricky, you could put 2 of me in anything I wore in 2006 , yippee !!! And as far as the pantomime horse goes " I wanna be the head, I wanna be the head" !!!
Thank you for all your best wishes folks, no just giving page im afraid ...
Mark really saddned and shocked to hear about your brother. My heart goes out to you ...
Trying to engineer a little "window of opportunity" to nip out of work here and head to the pack collection ...
Martin, whats the dogs name, we can freak your good lady by all calling it by name
Hmm , I like it , the dogs name is Holly ! Though I was tempted to say Princess FeeFee just to hear a load of grown men and women call it out
Bag collected so thats it official , bag collection is in main city hall for anyone who doesnt know like me, avoid the free leaflet tent unless its raining, its time you will never get back
Good luck to all you guys in the marathon on Monday.
I'm doing the Gideon's green to corporation street relay leg so hopefully will get to the finish in half decent time to see aa few clubmates come in.
Thanks TG , enjoy the relay !
Ricky , best of luck for the weekend , give em hell and I look forward to hearing all about it
Okay, first things first. Good luck Ricky. Hope you have a great run on Sunday and enjoy the rest of your break afterwards. Look forward to hearing how you get on.
Good luck to everyone else doing Belfast, either a leg of the relay or the full. I am going to be at the finish line on Monday so will hopefully get a chance to congratulate you as you finish. Prior to that I am going to be on the Athletics NI stand at the Expo (or free leaflet tent, as Martin calls it) tomorrow afternoon and Sunday. If you do decide to venture in, come over and say hello.
Mark - and anyone else who is going to be out there supporting - please give runner 1413 a shout if you see him. He doesn't have his name on his shirt but he is called Stuart and his proud Mum is going to be at the finish line so won't be able to cheer him along the route.
And for anyone suffering from 'Marathonitis', a little jog around the Waterworks at 9.30 tomorrow morning might be just what you need
I'm off to Limerick in the morning so may not back online for a while....Best of luck to all running Belfast - kinda wishing I was coming back on Sunday evening so I could turn up to support now!
Good luck tomarrow ricky,all them hard winter miles gonna pay you back.look forward to the race/pb report
good luck every1 monday,cant believe its may already! Where did the time go?
Picked up the pack yesterday, Postives - queues were better organised. Negatives - Crap T-Shirt unfit for running in. No Plasters!
At the expo I was done on £1 on the buy 5 gels for £4, I was already out of the tent before I realised. I also got the impression the people selling me the gels thought I was an idiot and that I didn't know what they were used for. My mate was about to get done as well but pointed out that it was a 5 for 4 offer. I would recommend going to boots for the essentials (except the T-Shirt).
Well done to anyone who did the Causeway Crossing events. The 50k for me had two particualrly challenging sections. The climb up out of the causeway on those chuffing steps and the return section along White Park Bay. Don't want to see a beach for a while again. The event was well supported with a surprising number of Americans entered.
It was well organised with good route markings and good aid stations. However it was disappointing there were no finishers goodie bags but simply a medal that doesn't even state the distance covered. Not up to the usual 26extreme standards!
