You've been getting around with your supporter's role Roobs 

Completed my 'run every day in March' challenge today, and totalled 130 miles for the month. This is the most I've done in a month since I started running. Slightly tough this morning after not as lot of sleep and too much alcohol, as it was OH's 60th birthday party last night. At least I can go to bed an hour early with the clock change!

I managed 30 lol

Well done you two

I knocked another two minutes off my parkrun time on Saturday That's 6 minutes off now since my first one on 23rd Feb I feel like I am finally starting to get somewhere although every run is still feeling hard. Got Braintree 5 on Sunday I would just like to get round in under an hour I have to start watching myself as I keep starting off too fast lol!

Hope it went well Tracey.  Who else will be in London next Sunday?  I'm off to the Expo on Wednesday wearing my bright pink hoodie so I don't get mistaken for a tory mourner

Morning everyone

Well done Tracey.  It was an honour to give you your medal for your new PB 

Also got to see Hippo and she's put a lovely?? photo of me on FB of the moment I realised that the lady who was taking my photo was her.  Wondered what was going on for a minute until I noticed her 

It was a long day, down at the start around 07:30 and eventually finished about 4:30. It was freesing cold first thing , the wind was biting, but once the sun came out at lunchtime it was really hot and I've got lovely red puffy cheeks to prove it (forgot to put my sunscreen on  )

Roobs came down for the weekend and we went to The Expo on Saturday afternoon.  Bimbled around a bit and met up with Tracey but there was nothing worth buying and after a coffee we summoned a taxi, otherwise known as Mr L  and headed off home. droping Tracey off at her campsite on the way.  It was pouring with rain and blowing a gale all day, but luckily Mr L was more than happy to take us there and pick us up so didn't have to get soaked.

All in all, it was a lovely weekend.  Great to have Roobs down here again, meet up with Tracey and see Tracey finish her PB and see Hippo again.

Here's to Brighton Marathon 2014 

15/04/2013 at 10:31

On a down note.  There was one fatality in the marathon.  A guy of 23 collapsed on the course at 16 miles and despite CPR at the scene and cardio surgery when he reached hospital, he died in hospital.  RIP Marathon Runner (we don't have a name yet).  A very sad end to what was otherwise a brilliant day.

15/04/2013 at 10:40

And nearly forgot.  The highlights are going to be on Channel 4 at 07:05 on Saturday morning.

Well done Tracey! Getting closer to that sub 5, and I'm sure you don't plan to give up marathons, so sure you'll get there. A girl from our club did her first marathon at Brighton, and managed a 4:54 I think - she's very thrilled, but can't get down stairs normally today. She'll probably be almost immobile tomorrow.

Sounds a really full and enjoyable week-end Lyndy, but as you say, the fatality casts a cloud over the day. Very sad.

Had a lovely week-end in Cambridge last week-end, for a wedding, but we stayed 3 nights, so time for sightseeing and the Cambridge parkrun. I beat my Southampton time, but it may have been an easier course. Didn't feel it after I'd been out late the night before drinking bubbly with the bride's family though!

Lyndy - that photo of you looks lovely

16/04/2013 at 14:19

Hiya everyone

Was a lovely weekend in Brighton Only marred by a stupid, selfish fetchie who I will probably knock out if I see her again lol!

I managed not to put on any weight which was a bonus - especially if you consider what I ate

It was great to be there for Tracey's pb We both entered next year's race and that will be another pb for both of us - I'm certain of that!

Now we just have to convince a certain Brighton resident that she really should do her home marathon............................ lol
