Something I ate at Pete's Eats once didn't agree with me and I've not been back - the only place I go for something substantial to eat now is Y Pantri on the High Street - home made lobscouse followed by the best coffee and flapjack in Llanberis! [I'm pretty sure it was voted best coffee shop in North Wales]
I was at the Petzl Night race at Coed-y-Brenin on Saturday - a 3 hour event over a very challenging 3k course in the dark. I spoke to a few "solo" runners who were using the event as training for Snowodnia. I "just" did the team event to support my club (which I haven't been able to do much this year), although I'm considering doing the solo event next year. It is a great concept and a fantastic event - would highly recommend!
Sorry to read that stilldreaming, although Snowdonia ain't the event to do if you are carrying a niggle or if you're under the weather - a local runner I know was hospitalised after falling ill at mile 17 in the Chester marathon.
That's the pace target re the Waunfawr climb TLG, but recent history may indicate it will end up being 9 minutes+ - in 2014, when I clocked my quickest time (2.50), miles 23+24 were probably 10mins+ after my calf started cramping
