I can't wait, Sarah, going to be amazing I've got a lovely pic of the two of us at the finish line at my last half mara where he had done the 3k and we're both showing off our medals - I'll post it on my thread, seeing as how pics seem to be appreciated!

Shame your husband doesn't share your passion - maybe he will be converted one day! Being a sad singleton, I don't have those concerns - no-one to moan at me for going on too many training runs haha!

Thankyou SBC, I've been taking notes and am looking forward to taking it more steady next week......will be able to enjoy the sites around york more and should still have enough energy and legs left to dance at my OH Christmas party in the evening and ? Do the park run the next morning....all being well!

Trying to put some more pics up but I cant find the upload button to do it from my phone!

I was just about to say you will have to post it. I did check with Katie that we could post pics (just incase with sponsors and brands possibly being in the back ground) and I got the green light. Does your son look like you?

When my OH has been away with the running club he does come back all enthusiastic about running but it never lasts. He's said he would like to do the isle of Skye half with me next year so I'm hoping he will catch the bug with that as its a wonderful race and place, if that doesn't convert him I don't know what will. On a plus side at the moment I can get him to start tea so that its ready when I get in from my run(normally at about 9:30/10pm at night) if I've been at work.

You will have to find someone who runs....would make life much more easier!

No, luckily he got his mother's looks! (but not her attitude haha) - have posted the pic (I'm the tall sweaty one in the background )

Well that's promising then! Hmm... Not sure the washing machine could cope if I end up with a fellow runner - it has enough trouble dealing with all my gear!

That's a lovely picture. He looks so happy....he's definitely a runner in the making. Your both colour coordinated aswell, with his medal ribbon matching your top.

If I'm running in Sheffield I'm a little nauty and leave my clothes at my mums to wash.....I think she enjoys doing it though!

Evening Sarah and SLB! How are things? It's all got a bit quieter on the forum today!

08/12/2012 at 21:07

Sarah I hope so! Would love to have a ready-made running buddy Although... he did join Running Club at his junior school and went for about three weeks then said he wanted to give it up. Asked him why... "It's really boring, dad, all we do is run" (!) Clearly need to work on him...

Haha well if she enjoys doing it... what's her address?

RRR - good thanks! How's the birthday going?!

Morning RRR, how was the rest of your bday? 

Hahaha, thats so sweet Steve, bless him.....I guess he does have a point....once he starts work (which I know is a while off) im sure he will start to share your enthusiam for running. 

But if she starts doing your washing, she may have less time for mine !
