I am not from the south. I am
North of the border. Here in Fife Scotland we have had a week of fab weather but I only saw it last saturday and Sunday as my office sees no daylight. My 10 mile was done in really hot sunshine last Sunday. Wilted badly by 8 miles so was glad to stop at a farm cottage and ask nicely to fill my water bottle.

Still not decided what I am wearing. Really want to get my tee shirt printed with 'Am I there yet' lol.

Hello Neighbours "pops in from Number 2's "

Hello Tiptoes.  How's it going over in 2?
30/03/2012 at 14:06

What's that smell?? Oh I see a number two has dropped in

sorry - it's Friday

Born North, lived South now in the middle - living in Loughborough - which is very depressing for a slow plodder!

So here it is - have decided not to run as  a greyhound in a bobble hat  but will be disguised a a gey haired short arsed woman - I may look like this at mile 17 only redder, more knackered and probably looking a bit more miserable - I also don't intend to have embazoned across my knees

Name: Angela (will be Ange on the vest)
Race number: 8578
Est. time to mile 17: 1pm according to the pace-guide (hoping to finish in 5 hrs)
Wearing: Oxfam Green & a headband, pretty much exactly as in my pic (sorry it's so teeny).
Special needs: Not really, a bit of encouraging cheer would be great, and maybe some jelly babies too!

Thanks so much for your support, you lovely people . Look forward to seeing you on the day.

Hi Angela.  I don't have you on my list?  Have you been allocated a group?  If not then you are welcome to join us, but I don't want another group to be looking for you if you are on their list.
30/03/2012 at 15:53
DL, are you going to be in the same charity vest?
30/03/2012 at 15:57
Hi SuperCaz,

Yes, I think... is this group 3? I got an email from Sister Bad Habit with a link to here.

It was some time ago, sorry for my slowness (been away for work). Maybe I was dropped from the list due to inactivity

30/03/2012 at 15:59
Ah, OK.  She didn't let me know.  Welcome, and you are on the Magic Spreadsheet now.  Look forward to seeing you at Mudchute.
30/03/2012 at 16:00
Actually I take that back.  You were on the original list but somehow got missed off my spreadsheet.  Sorry, my mistake.
30/03/2012 at 16:01
No worries. Those magic spreadsheets can be tricky things

SC hello
DL lol
Hope everyone is well.
Reading half for me this weekend then one more Long Run
30/03/2012 at 21:34
Good luck at Reading Tiptoes! It's a great race I hear.

Has everyone got another long run on for next weekend? Had my last one down for this week... but the training plan that Runner's World mailed out today has one more for next Sunday .

Am doing Forest of Dean Trail Half Marathon on Sunday. Should be good weather for running
30/03/2012 at 21:46
Angella, that probably depends on your definition of 'long', how many marathons you've run already, how fast you are.... This weekend is my last really long run. Next Sunday's is borderline long to my mind, but the last 6 will be at marathon pace so still a toughie I suppose.

30/03/2012 at 22:02
Oh good, that makes sense, thanks! My first marathon (or any sort of distance run really), so it's all new and daunting.

Had 14 miles for next weekend, which I guess for me is plenty long enough

Good Day oh wonderous people, sorry its taken a time but been very busy training (not)

Name: Dave Wood

Wearing: Help 4 Heroes vest and running on Jelly legs lol

Expected Mile 17: 22/03/2012

Hi Dave - you missed your predicted time out

I will read up on my CPR skills just in case

Evening all.

New shoes delivered but returned as too tight. Ordered another pair in next width up from another shop on Friday and said urgent. Kind man posted first class at no extra cost and they arrived this morning. Had their first outing this afternoon. Comfort
