Minni v Dubai Dave
Thats the one Sarah!! On the odd occasion that they do manage to arrive on time they play a fanfare and announce 'Another ontime arrival with Ryanair' whereupon the passengers are supposed to applaud loudly [I think]. Luckily they abandoned the Belfast route when Belfast airport refused to pay for the privelege of having them annoy all their customers..
I didn't realise BM had also been cancelled - perhaps Minni arranged it so that you couldn't beat her
O4S I'd already decided to claim I was blocked in and couldn't make it, just in case.....
I decided on a duration run today considering the weather. 3 hours off road. The snow was beautiful but knee deep in places. Ended up with 17 miles and now have a snow burnt face!
I've just walked to the Chinese takeaway. Nearly slipped over several times. The road and pavement is like a sheet of glass. No way could you run on it.
never flown easy jet myself. The ex wife was scared of flying so all our holidays were in England.
Simon - running / walking is tricky, cycling would be suicidal!!
I had entered Folksworth 15 today (cancelled) although I'm not sure if I was fit enough to run it. With Brass Monkey cancelled too, are they rescheduling, refunding, forgetting about it and keeping the cash?
Turn up and pick up your t-shirt?
Your idea sounds sensible. Folksworth are trying to reschedule.
Winter Tanners are offering partial refunds - it only cost £4!! They can't reschedule as their next 30 mile event is only 3 weeks away. Trouble is 90% of people entered online so about £1 of the entry fee has already been taken by the online company, and even more would go if they had to refund.
Just getting the waterproof socks out for another epic...................
So they might offer a £1 refund?
Awe, sorry to hear people's races have been cancelled
Well done Minni and Red for your runs in the snow! Hope everyone else has kept safe in those slippery conditions.
Well the long awaited snow fall has finally reached Essex, it was hit or miss whether we would go to spin this mornign, but we phoned the gym and made sure it was still on then off we went. The roads were okish, down to single lanes to follow in other peoples tracks - was amazed how busy the gym was, spin class full as normal. Didn't hang around after to do core/weights but glad we ventured out as who knows what the roads will be like tomorrow?!
Some impressive long snowy runs going on. I have to confess I wimped out yesterday as it was so icy, but there's lots of fresh snow falling now and that's normally easier to run on.
wow, seems the weather is a lot worse for you lot for once! We have -8, a bitterly cold wind and no snow.Sorry about all those cancelled races and huge well dones getting out in those conditions / braving the treadmill for hours.Only one more run to go today to make the full 6 for Jantastic. Still feeling shite

Barry - Well done on 18m on the TM. It looks like 2old will have some competition from you and Chick for lsr's on the TM.
Simon, you are confusing me with AA! I don't do treadmills. Ever . They are an instrument of the devil . Could never face the boredom of being stuck on one for hours.
