ASICS target 26.2
It must be catching this running thing......my 14 year old daugther asked to go for her first fun after school....!!!!.....Tired and muddy and smiling....!!!
Hi Melaniejayne - I don't think I met you at bootcamp but I read your piece and was really touched by it. I too have three teenage daughters (well almost, the twins are 13 in three weeks time).
Our household has been voting for you. You sound an amazing person and I wish you and your three girls the best of luck in everything you do!
Some familiar faces on here as well
Hi David....I recognise your face.....twin girls..!!!....thats a totally different story!!!.... not suprised you run too!!!!!......At least I have a male dog, but I think hes feeling pretty out numbered now!!!...
Wouldnt it be fab if you got thorugh for your 50th...!!!...Roll on the end of this bit so that we just know one way or another.....
Melanie, what can I say. I feel slightly in awe. To have gone through all that and come through with such positivity - amazing.
What's the name of the hospice you work at and where is it?
Also, what other marathons do you have planned - apart from Paris of course?
Respect for your comment about not turning to alcohol and cake but with all this running I think you can allow yourself the cake at least!
malcs - I think we all have choices and we can either go one way or another when things are pants, I guess working in a children's hospice makes me realise how lucky I really am!!....Its Chestnut Tree House near Arundel, and of course I think its a fab place!!!....we have a great team and we have a huge empahasis on enjoying what time we have!!!...
Plans next year as far as marathons.....Stenying Stinger....( my first and apparently the worst... really hilly!!...aghhh) but I have been told if I can do that one I can do anything!!!.....Brighton marathon, lochness and new forrest......also Fany y Big and trail walker.....!!! Wahhhh.....Think i might need to either give up work or the children to fit in the training!!!!......probably the children.....!!
What plans do you have???.......once you have the bug its hard to let go....I used to be a skydiver so Im kind of filling that gap too. I gave it up 2 years ago but Martin kept me busy so didnt really notice how much I missed it......
So what was the tights outcome????......
Wow that's quite a list - good on you! You've got a great attitude, I have no doubt you'll achieve your goals.
Hmm, my plans look a little lame in comparison. Last year I did a load of races but this year I wanted to focus purely on decimating my marathon time. So for me it'll be just one marathon in April either Paris or Llanelli (for most people Llanelli is the natural second choice to Paris)
Re the tights issue - it was tights over shorts by an overwhelming majority! Very relieved as I had randomly chosen this option hoping it might be the right one. Just glad that it has now been proven by rock solid statistical analysis.
Best of luck for the competition and everything you are planning!
Best of luck Mel, will be great following your progress if you get through - you have a truly inspiring story and you deserve it
Let's hope they don't leave us waiting too long for the decision!!
Echo Steve Mel, best of luck to you.
echo that echo xx
Is there an echo in here?
oh you are all very busy on the forum today with your 'echos' while some of us have to work!!!!.........is it lame to echo you back!!!!
Well done Mel, enjoy the experience.
.I hope that you have managed to sort out the work situation for the next 16 weeks so that it can take a back seat to the number 1 priority .
Congratulations on making the team - look forward to working with you. I will email you direct to have a chat about programme and goals etc.
Congratulations! sorry I didn't meet you at BC, but you have such an inspiring story, and are a worthy winner. All the best for the next 4 months!
Look forward to having you along on the journey again. Mel - Oscar is such a great contributor to the forums - insights, tips and lots of support to come from him!
Hi Mel, many congratulations on getting through - so pleased you're through! Looking forward to getting started?
See you Sunday!
