I wonder how our Loula is getting on.
wooohooooo well done Boss!!!!!!!! thats a fabby time !!! you are gonna blast the marathon!!
my run for charity was very very very cold (snow) very very muddy and very hilly it was so muddy that where we all had to park ( on grass) was a mud bath and it was chaos on the way out. cars were stuck in mud ( NOT ME!!) and having to be pulled out by tractor or pushed out by other runners!!! eelk!! it took me longer to get out of the car area than it did to run the flipping thing!! it was started by the lovely Raymnd Blanc and one of the Drs from the Brain Dr series on TV at the john radcliffe hosiptal.
i always do this event as all the proceeds go to the oxford childrens hospital and it was also my VERY FIRST run event ever that got me into running and gave me the bug , so it has a spoecial place in my heart i did 43 mins- freeeeeeezing!!!
Well done Loula. Hubby was worried as we parked in a field and it was boggy but we managed to get out with a bit of slipping. Sounds like a very special race for you too.
Wow! well done AF and Loula! You have all done brilliantly today.
MC - Glad you got your MRI done. Here's hoping they can find out what's wrong now.
Oh! Fantastic times Ecky, AF, LLB - inspiring! Are we going to get detailed reports and pics?

hellooooo from a freezy Oxfordshire!!! we have had bits of fluffy snow but nothing really buts its minus temps-wind bitterly cold. brrrrr.
franny sis, a 'pootle' is a relaxed run hence, i had a pootle around Blenheim, ie im a lazy little tyke who couldnt be bothered to run hard
afternoon from a frozen snowy nottinghamshire, can't believe it is March!
by eck - you need to get a gorgeous young dentist like mine then you will be breaking your teeth on purpose but go and get it sorted before it starts hurting
swimming tonight so long as the snow isn't too bad to get there
had a boring inset day of doing admin work
How is everybody? Just shooting through - sorry I've not been about much, but a combination of someone quitting work before Xmas, and doing lots of commuting means I don't seem to have much free time anymore!
Quick round up of news - doing Grindleford Gallop has re-ignited my interest in running! Thanks for all your kind wishes, weather was much worse than last year, with rain, sleet, wind, mud... but I did knock 23 minutes off last years time, and came in under 4 hours, which I was happy with for 21 hilly trail miles in the Peak District. Other than racing - in 3 weeks time I officially move in with Liz I'm moving down to Hertford, and will be commuting back 4 days a week, working from home on a Wednesday. Quite nervous, as it's the first time I won't be living in Wisbech since the day I was born, but... hugely excited and happy too.
Other than that, not much to tell really, running hasn't been going that well...or that badly, but now I'm getting interested again so hopefully I'll have more to report. North Downs Way 50 next...
Right, I'm off on my commute home again!
rocker!!!! great to hear from you, so happy things are working out with Liz, well done on the Grindleford gallop
Don't want to rub it in but it was in the 20s here today. Not that I got to see much of it mind you!
Rocker - well done on your Grindleford gallop! And as MC said, it's great things are working out for you and your lady.
By'eck - I don't like the dentist either.
Helping little un with his homework.....better get back to it.
Rocker-Great to here about you moving in with Liz and that you are a happy chappy.Well done on the Grindelford gallop and knocking 23 minutes off your time from last year.
Franny-I am a bit achey today- will do a little run tomorrow.
Cold and snowy and just had a horrible drive back from work. It's meant to be spring.
Thanks for everyone nice comments about my race ysterday - still feel good!
Hi Rocker Well done on the race yesterday. Can't wait for your house warming party
Well done to everyone who has run in the freezing temperatures, bitter wind and snow flurries. It was sooooo cold. Managed 5 miles though.
chili - well done for running in that cold yesterday. still bitterly cold here and more snow overnight, although I am glad I am not in Sussex by the look of the news!
right, better get on with school work
