Happy New Year to you and welcome to the 2013 thread of the Cake Runners Athletics Club (CRAC)
As the title suggests we are here for anyone who just wants to go a 'little bit further'. Several of us have been together for a couple of years but we always welcome new members. So whether you're aiming to increase from 5k to your first 10k or training for a marathon or Ultra, please feel free to come and join us.
The CRAC team (virtual world and only on this thread) started a few years ago because we realised that along with running we seem to have an equal passion for cakes and puddings . Our club team colours are the Battenburg and we reside in the CRAC Tower. I'm sure all the regulars will soon be calling in to introduce themselves and claiming a seat on the sofa in front of our roaring fire.
On this thread you will get lots of laughs, support, encouragement, food and hopefully a bit of running knowledge Very occasionally we even manage to meet up at a real race or training day!
So please come on in, grab a cuppa and a piece of carrot cake from the tea trolley, make yourself known and join us in running 'Just A Little Bit Further' in 2013!
I love carrot cake, thanks chili
Never say no to a bit of carrot cake.
* comes in and settles down by the fire* Mmmmm I love Carrot Cake. Thanks Chilli and yes,everyone is welcome.
Anyone tried 'Tennessee Toffee Pie'? It's hard to explain exactly what it is, others have likened it to cheese cake, but I don't like cheese cake so surely it can't be that! Our local pizza place used to have it all the time, but they haven't had it in for ages now and I have no idea where to buy it in shops. Hopefully it'll come back at some point, it really is luvverly!
I reckon my aim for the first part of next year is to get back to 15k again, and push towards 20k and beyond in the remainder of the year.
Edit: Just found an image of it:
Looks scrummy RR. I have made far too many puddings this week. I do have a lemon drizzle cake for our CRAC meet up tomorrow with Rocker and his lovely lady.
Haven't weighed myself in a while. Guess I will do that tomorrow morning Wonder how many pounds I'll have put on?
Same here - weighing time tomorrow morning. I've been doing the HIIT for the best part of the month though, so I'm hoping to see some come off..
***takes seat to watch the show***

AF - have a great race this morning.
Anyone made any interesting New Year's Resolutions? Or what about running goals for 2013?
I had a great 2012 and whilst I didn't quite manage to do my first Ultra I did thoroughly enjoy all the marathons and long distance trail runs. My aims for 2013 are:
1. Outlaw Half-Ironman Tri in June2. Continue working on my 100 T-shirt at parkrun with my girlies3. Cycling weekend in Berlin with my brother in Sept4. Hopefully an autumn marathon as yet unidentified.
Thanks for the welcome
I would have had 'injury free 2013' as a target but too late 'cos I developed peroneal tendinitis on Friday so am celebrating New Year with foot in bucket of ice. But anyway - no more injuries!
ultra (have already entered Two Oceans in Cape Town but may have to ask for deferral if foot doesn't recover super-quick)
I'm a 'slowbie' but would quite like to crack 55 minute 10k
