Wow Clarki - way to go lady!  Good to have you back.  I lost this thread (as well as the plot) for a while.  Nice to see us all returning to the fold!

Clarki... Vikki on FB has done Brighton. It is hilly but ok if the wind doesn't blow along the seafront. I have put in the ballot ( London ) as well and hope it will be my swan song. Yes my very last marathon. Not to say I wil not be doing smaller distances. i hope to be helping out at Brighton as a marshal so maybe see you there.

Cheers guys - had a week off running as a rest and then ran again on Sat and Sun, felt OK.  Dunno whether to do a proper race report as last year, it would be depressing reading.

Gatton - I'll give you all some virtual coaching next year if necessary, but not sure you'd want to follow my advice lol

Caro - I did remember where you stood and I saw you last year (just after Mile 17 marker I think) and I did look out for you to no avail.  However, imo there were many more people in that area this year.

I might apply for a GFA entry for VLM again this year. 

Welcome back Clarki, you'll have to do both of them lol

Hi guys, did the Bristol 10k yesterday and again surprised to see my times improving, although not a PB for me, i did 49 about 4 years ago, however i had got up to a 54 last year, but did a 52.36 in Feb and did a 51.17 yesterday, so very very pleased with myself. All this cross training, squats, kettle bells and step classes is paying off, ive not done as much mileage but getting better times Goal to do a sub 50 for 10k this year.

Happy running out there guys

Way to go Clarki. keep up the good work..

We all could do with some advice Gatton!

Well done Clarki, doing great.  You'll soon have that sub-50 10K again, keep up the good work.

Just thought I'd bounce this back to the top to see if any of you guys are anxiously awaiting your magazine - if you're still out there running and generally how you all are!

For my part I'm waiting (not necessarily anxiously) and am also waiting to sign up for the GNR again (I know you all think that's bonkers)!

Trig I'm waiting. Will be honest, not really sure whether I want it to be a yes or a no! What about everyone else?

Good to hear back VB. Going by the link posted in another thread I've been unsuccessful but as I'm at work I've no way of knowing if rejection mag has arrived yet! Ah well not sure my heart's really in it anyway
27/09/2013 at 10:45
Well my magazine hasn't arrived ???? I'm worried now it's gone to our old house although I did email them our change of address. I saw on Facebook you didn't get in Trig. How are you feeling about it? How about anyone else?
27/09/2013 at 10:50
VB I think I'm rather relieved. Struggling to get round 10k at the moment! Not sure about anyone else!
29/09/2013 at 09:53
I'd be more than struggling. Tbh I think it would have to be a deferral even if by some miracle I did get in!
11/04/2014 at 07:58
Thought I'd pop in and see if any among us are running on Sunday? I'd love to come and watch but not sure how practical it would be with 2 littlies...
11/04/2014 at 14:03
Hey VB! I've still kept this thread bookmarked but it's been very dormant! Not running on Sunday but am toying with the idea of going to watch for the first time ever! Went to Expo on Wednesday and met up with Gatton - hope all's well with you xx
11/04/2014 at 14:14
Hi Trig, if you can go and watch I would highly recommend it-the atmosphere is incredible!! I'm glad there are still people lurking on here. I'm good thanks, how about you? Xx
14/04/2014 at 20:51

Wow - been a while since I've been on here, prompted by watching a little race on TV yesterday.

Sad to hear you didn't get in, here's fingers crossed for you all next year 

15/04/2014 at 08:04
Wow Daz - where you been? Are you still running?

VB I did go and spent almost six hours on the embankment - a truly amazing spectacle. So sad to hear about the poor man who died
16/04/2014 at 13:58

Hi Trigg, I trust all is well?

Not running much, only one race last year, VLM.  Been training on and off, but ruptured my achilles tendon again at end of Jan, so really done very little and hence no VLM this year.

Glad you and VB enjoyed the spectating, we did consider coming up for the weekend to watch, but it clashed with a friend's wedding.  I jokingly told a few people on the Saturday night bash that I was running VLM the following morning, and some did actually believe it.   I must still look the part and can obviously talk the talk even if I cant walk the walk.

Notwithstanding that, at lunchtime today I did my first run in about 3 weeks, a gentle 3.53 miles, felt ok'ish and tendon only a little sore now.  I'll be back!

It's always tragic when there is an incident such as the man dieing, I guess the only consolation is that he was doing something he enjoyed, and that he has now raised a very large amount of money for his chosen charity.

Catch you all soon!

Hey Daz great to hear back from you - hope your achilles is healing well.

Oops entered the ballot for next year at 2 a.m. this morning - the entry system closed at 10.00 so we'll see what happens.

Anyone else entered?
