Well been awhile since I popped in - I'm waving frantically at you all ??????????.
i was wondering if anyone else is still waiting for their reject notifications for VLM? I've still heard nothing, nil, zilch not even charities contacting me ........
is it something I said !
Call 'em up Pri-Fi .....
It's taper week for me ..... got maximum 35 miles scattered throughout the week. Just gave myself a bit of punishment after a weekend of Belgium Chocolate and drinking beers with lots of people from this thread at The Wedding of the Year. 7.5 miles kind of tempo run, bit slippy underfoot, dodging peds, bikes, cars, school kids, leaves, dust-trucks, took in a fair bit of Hampstead Heath as well. Need to punish myself a bit more this week, particularly on pace, I've been a bit lazy with it recently.
Good for you Nicole ..... you are a Boston Qualifier and you're not letting the cut off stand in the way of your plans. You'll have a great time over there. The locals make you feel very welcome. It's a great vibe at marathon weekend.
Good call for training on those hills, especially the downhills. Despite running my best ever run this year, I was hurting after about an hour. My quads were trashed. I have to say Boston could be considered a fast course but also quite challenging. I've never felt so sore after a race in the first 24 hours.
Welcome Kenny. Hop on aboard the awesome Paris express. Don't delay it will sell out soon. Don't think twice just do it. It's awesome big city marathon and there's pb opportunity. Btw nice 3.07 at Berlin, clearly you'll beat that with a clean run closing in on a sub3 surely. Make sure you put yourself in the red pen.
