bp - cant you run off road..we've got loads of snow here but ive managed to get 50 in this week..i run very little on the lanes anyway i guess
no doubt loon dod will have doubled that as you say t rex
first one to finish buys the chips then t rex?
now that would be a classy way to travel! Was in touch with the guy we are staying with for the fling today who reported that the loch there has 8 inches of ice on the surface. They are planning a curling competition next week!
Have a good weekend all - no nasty snow/ice related injuries please!
CD - OK, you're on! Although first job will be to get the tent up and quick shower before hitting chippy/town, etc.
Looking forward to this. It's the same day as the Devon 100, a new event, which if I'd have known about would have entered before entries closed. If it clashes again in 2011 I may well be heading to West Country instead. But if not I'll be having another go at the full 96. Anyone care to join me?
t rex..tops..we'll just be finishing by the time you've got your domestics done
probably be my last fling (for a while) so cant oblige
Your final Fling?
Make sure it's a good one, then. Do they have any good ales in Tyndrum or will it be only fine single malts?
They sell the Skye Brewery's "Hebridean Gold" at the Green Welly Shop - my favourite. Beer made from porridge oats - what can be better than that?
I could be tempted to try going further in 2011, though not sure I would be very good company.
First run today after a long spell off to recover from an injury. Did two steps, slipped on some ice, and fell on my ass - not a good start.
Sounds like old slops to me! OK, AliBJ, we'll plan the logistics later. What happens to you then? Do you transform into something terrible at night?
Can I put a question to the group?! I was wondering if I should be thinking about taking walking poles on this little trip. I haven't used them before but given I suspect much of this is going to be fast walking for me I was thinking they might help. Would appreciate people's views on this one. Part of me thinks they will just be annoying to carry when not in use but I can see on the hilly sections they might help.
bp - sorry cant help there ive never used them nor has anyone else on here..well not when ive seen them running
better off having a dog pull you along
I thought as much! you are all too bliddy fast that's your trouble!
Birdypie - I think you would find hiking poles a hazard, if not to yourself, then to other runners. They're disallowed in fell races. I noticed a few people were using them in the Oner and Ridgeway 85 last year. I personally wouldn't consider them.
bp - no im not fast at all..i prefer to savour ultras rather than gobbling them down
think you'll find a lot of continentals using them. but then many also have cuckoo clocks too
