I'm not making any big announcements so shhh, keep it quiet, but I may be back in business (running). 

Did a little 3 miler today. Went well but the real test will be how I feel tomorrow because doing the same thing last week caused a massive relapse. Fingers crossed!

hey iv spoken to lottie and she is in for the thunder run! Malcs i' llmessage you her details.

15/01/2013 at 19:05

Excellent, so....


All entered and confirmed - no turning back now 

The team can be modified online at any time. I put the team name as "RW Bootcampers 2013" based on Tigger's post about hoodies earlier but it can easily be changed.

The event manual is here:

This really is the best race I've done. In many ways it's alot like bootcamp - a load of like minded people all crazy about running and high on adrenaline. I think you're all going to love it. And of course running in the middle of the night is just something else!

15/01/2013 at 19:40

Thats great Team Bootcampers! I'm really looking forward to hearing all about it. Someone needs to take video footage please!!!

Good to hear you back out running Malcs, fingers crossed you're on the up again!

15/01/2013 at 19:49

Shh Jen, quietly please. I don't want to tempt fate so I'm keeping it hush hush for now. If I don't feel like I'm going to die tomorrow then I'll crack open the party poppers 

PS. still places on the team if/when you change your mind 

15/01/2013 at 19:56

ok.. I'm whispering..

Almost wish I wasn't away on hols now, It sounds like it will be a blast.

15/01/2013 at 20:05

So excited now!! can the team message me your email address's please!

thanks x

Thankyou ever so much Malcs for sorting it all out, im so grateful, chris will be relieved that hes not the 6th person as well now as he doesnt like the idea of camping or running so much (yet...but im still working on him).

Thanks for the heads up with the showers aswell, if im seperating laps then a good shower is warrented....and a flask of coffee!

Im keeping my fingers crossed that you will remain well by the morning, it sounds like youve had a good rest and gave yourself alot of time to recouperate.
15/01/2013 at 21:57

No problem at all. Tigger is now the official team captain hence her above request.

Hopefully we can all arrange to be on the same pitch but that's all for later down the line.

Yes rest indeed. No running for me today of course, isn't that right Jen?  Certainly wasn't tempted by a cheeky 3 miles round the block with the missus. Not me guv, I was at home resting 

16/01/2013 at 07:32
Lol. Hope your feeling ok this morning Malcs and you've made a full recovery.

I hope netballs cancelled....its too cold to be playing outdoors without gloves (never understood why you can't wear them as if anything they hinder you catching a ball rather than help you)!

Crack open the part poppers, switch on the fairy lights and hoist the main sail, I think I may finally be rid of the lurg! 

Don't think I'll risk running today but I'll definitely be out tomorrow. 

Are you not allowed to use fingerless gloves Sarah? I'm surprised they are that strict. In Rugby you can use certain types but they must be fingerless.

Glad to hear you're on the mend and big thanks for your organisational prowess on behalf of team bootcamp.

Does anyone think we should have a competition for the ultimate bootcamp based name?

G'day everyone,

Apologies for not being back on since got back from hols but been busy on call at work. Plus trying to catch up on forums impossible!!

Great news about the Thunder run- who is confirmed in the end?

Need to get the running back on track, as really lost enthusiasm around Xmas. did a couple of runs on holiday, including a 7miler from the hotel as far as the mnearest p[alm tree and back. It was a dead straight road and I did wonder about mirages...Whether it was the heat or eating/drinking too much as well, but I could barely walk for a couple of days after. Even the kids kept saying Daddy is walking funny

Mind you, went out at 10.30pm last night in -3- was really refreshing until I realised when got back to car I had no petrol and the petrol cap was frozen. Mr Bean type video followed as I tried to force it open!

Other than York, has anyone else any other plans for Autumn marathons? I fancy chaicago but not sure re the price. I'm going to d the Great North Swim and maybe a couple of tris in the summer as well

DS- will send email later

16/01/2013 at 16:56
welcome back Clive. Yep..its time to get your running back on track. I'm sure your hol was a much needed break! I'm not doing TR24, but am doing snowdon marathon in Oct. ! lots of hill work for me this summer.
16/01/2013 at 23:34
yay, glad that youve finally made a full recovery Malcs. Were not allowed to wear any types of gloves or hats....i think its quite mean really as some days it can be freezing...luckily the match was cancelled today. Dont think I would have enjoyed it in -3 - -8 conditions and freezing fog!

Hi clive, hope you had a fabulous holiday. Im, sure your running will get back on track now that your back home and back into your routine. My car door wouldnt shut today as the lock was frozen and wouldnt work properly....very inconvenient!

Im one of the people doing TR24.

Hi Indy...why not!
17/01/2013 at 15:35

Sarah - thanks. Did 4.5 today SLOOOOWLY. Minus 8 and no gloves? Netball players are obviously all hard as nails! I'll stick to rugby.

Clive - great to see you back!

Indy - no problem. All for a bootcamp name comp - are you going to start the ball rolling? 

17/01/2013 at 16:50

Afternoon all. Not been posting much because work has been manic - I think I'm paying for my inability to work in December due to being totally absorbed in this thread! Wife reminded me last night that we need to change both cars this year and eldest will be off to Uni next year. Suddenly the need for income looks a bit greater than it did when all I could think of was Paris!

Malcs - (whispering). Glad to see you are back in business. Is your first race the Spitfire?

Clive - Trust you had a great holiday? Thanks for the email. I have read a little but will do my best to have a proper look this weekend. looking at the weather forecast i might have a bit of time on my hands..........

Very jealous of you lot doing the TR24.

Jenf - enjoy those hills. Have thought about doing Snowdonia myself on more than one occasion. I shall look forward to hearing all about it. I thought about you on Saturday when i took my daughter hockey and the cafe next to the pitch was selling granola bars. Didn't look as appetising as yours though


17/01/2013 at 20:38

hey DS2 still a few places left at Snod i think...I'll supply you with granola bars

Malcs, good you've got another run in.. slow is good!

Lol Sarah re car, my electrics have been playing up in these sub zero temps n the windows go up n down on tier own! bit chilly!!

17/01/2013 at 20:53

Evening all! It's started the snow is making another appearance! looks like I'll be swimming tomorrow! glad to say Mr Tigs is driving home now instead of tomorrow! thought I'd share that!! very excited about the TR24 , anyone else other than malcs, rrr, and our team that's doing it?
