A great prize & challenge
28 is clearly the magic number! That's amazing seren nos. I would be ecstatic if I could do that.
I noticed that the March half goes from Parc Y Scarlets - that might put jonathan off if he's an Ospreys fan
We only tend to get down to Lanelli on the odd weekend or school hols - would love to try a half along the coastal path. All my halves have been up and down hills, although for every up you do have that very nice down!
Nothing like booking onto a race to make you want to go for a run! Ashby 20 I am coming to get you!!
Hello runners! I'm new to this forum, having discovered it upon being selected for bootcamp. I've been reading all the advice and tips from past bootcampers and find it very helpful, thank you all!
I'm looking forward to meeting everyone at bootcamp. I'm excited for the experience and get more and more anxious as it gets close!
Welcome Gremlin. What is your running history? I think we are all in the same boat - excited but a little anxious. I'm sure on the day, from what some of last years attendee's have said, we'll have a great day whatever the outcome. Look forward to seeing you there!
Hi Gremlin....looks like it should be dry but cold for you lot.much better than wet and windy
Hi Seren nos, it looks that way but some of us southern softies may be in for a rude awakening. it's been pretty mild down here so far this month and whenever I have put tights on I've regretted it because it's been too warm. Mind you, I was grateful this morning for them - the rain was torrential. Great fun - always have liked training in those conditions!
DS2 your right training in the wet and wild is good fun.... as long as your heading straight home into the shower!
Green and white tigger - It makes you feel alive doesn't it. I've been bouncy all day. My business partner thinks I'm totally mad as he retreats outside to inhale more nicotine! I know what I'd sooner be doing!
Thank you for the weather update, I haven't given it much thought! I love running in the rain, but I'll pass on rainy and windy. Dry and cold I can do!
I started running 5 1/2 years ago as a way to get back in shape, but was too intimidated to run any races until 2010. Finally, I decided I wanted to conquer the 1/2 marathon and signed up for one without ever running any other distance. Following that, I ran a handful of various distances and then I ran my first full marathon last October. I LOVED the feeling of crossing the finish line and knew that I would run another one, but life got crazy and I wasn't sure when it would happen. I ran across this program at the perfect time!
Nice one Gremlin, which marathon did you do?
Hi Malcs, the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., USA. A great course for a first timer!
Wow - across the pond eh. And the Marines too - did you have a drill sergeant shouting at you the whole way round?
It sounds like there's going to be an excellent mix of people come Friday. I never use to be a fan of running in the rain, but I ran the New Forest Marathon a couple of months ago and it was torrential rain for the whole race. I thought I'd hate it, but I actually loved it. I think the camaraderie of the other runners helped.
Phone probs Jenf?
I don't mind the rain so much but I hope it's not standing water! I had a cross country race on Sunday - eek! They didn't need to put any extra water obstacles in this year as mist of the course was underwater! Think I might have got a better time in flippers!
Seren Nos and AbigailLucy - I'd LOVE to knock 28 mins off of my marathon time! I've only done one marathon so far and the thought of being able to knock some more minutes off is very appealing!!
