How did your run go Wabbit? I was supposed to swim today but walked the dog and it had stopped raining and was really mild and I'm stuck in a windowless room all day and well - I ran instead I am supposed to be recovering/tapering but sometimes you just have to take your chances when you get them.
Thanks LMH - I havent been posting or come on here. Have been running but on / off though have been on for the last couple of years Did a run in Elvaston park - beautiful park. Well done, your running seems amazing XX
If only I'd have known that you were so close EP - Elvaston is one of my regular running routes. Any races lined up before VLM?
I thought so LMH!! I am thinking of doing Edwinstowe 10k What about you? xx
I've got the GER next week and have just entered Portsmouth Coastal Marathon in December. When is Edwinstowe?
Coastal Marathon - sounds undulaling Edwinstowe is in December. Cracking run, nice time of year. . .just before xmas. Good luck with GER ( . .whats that stand for . .thought I knew )) xx
Booting this thread to the top in case more Team MacMillan runners want to join!
Good luck with GER and Portsmouth, LMH. I agree good timing just before christmas. I am hoping to do similar but at half level not full marahon. See how training goes.
EP - Great Eastern Run. Portsmouth should be flat but is right on the coast so very wind exposed with some trail and I believe one section across a shingle beach.
Have you found a half Wabbit?
6 MONTHS TODAY!
I only know that as I have received all sorts of e-mails from the charity about registering with London Marathon directly etc.....
How's everyone doing?
Cracking half marathon for me yesterday - though the weather could have been better! Time to focus more on getting the longer runs in now. Six months seems like forever but I bet it will be here before we know it.
Very wet half marathon yesterday, that makes 2 x HM, one 10 mile race plus a 5 mile race in the last 5 weeks. Good start to the winter training. 50 mile ultra next Saturday to get the cake eating part of the training underway.........
Hope the weather is kind to you o4s
I managed to get a place through the ballot at London marathon , am considering running for macmillian but can anybody tell me what they are like to run for , I already know they are a great charity through. Personal experiences , after the race are your family allowed in the recovery centre and is there showers available ? Any information would be appreciated
Others may have more experience with MacMillan than I however my first impressions are that they are very supportive and will do as much as they can to help you.
I can't answer specific questions you raise but why not e-mail them directly. I am sure they will be able to answer your queries.
This is the first year I have ran for them. Good luck and fantastic news that you will be running and raising money for a very worthy cause!
Hi Mark, Macmillan don't have showers in the recovery centre, you're allowed to book two guests in though I have seen Mum and two children join Dad so they may be flexible with younger ones. Supporters aren't really supposed to have the food and drink but tend to get something. The volunteers are amazing and the massage just what you need at the end.
Mark G5: the post race recovery centre is brilliant, from the Scouts directing you all the way [and in my case carrying my bag], to the cheerleaders cheering you down the steps, the volunteers, massage, food and drink etc. No showers but wet wipes provided for a quick freshen up. Just chatting to other runners and their supporters brings home to you how much Macmillan have helped so many families. This will be my 5th consecutive year running for them...........................
Not VLM, but i'm doing the 2014 Brighton marathon for Team Macmillan - anyone else doing that one?
Hello Im in VMLM 2014 and looking to run for a charity - Missus doing an ultra for fund raising next year too so I presume because I have a place I don't have to get £2k raised (will aim high but not having that kind of pressure would be good). Going to have a good read of the links here as you all seem a nice friendly bunch
Already posted on beginners but I am confused what training prog to follow - any advice (4 runs max pw) grateful. Gosh less than 24 weeks!!!
Just a quick hello from another Team Macmillan runner! I was diagnosed with Melanoma in January (currently all clear) decided I wanted to pay my thanks to the brill Macmillan team.
