Happy Easter TRex and good luck in the American River 50... I'll be in the same country but working with no chance to take part in any marathons. The best I can do is run to the coach on Easter Monday morning and try to get some short jogs in during the small amount of free time we have.
How was Dover, Brer?
Mrs RJ nearly got blown off the South Downs on Sunday, and one runner had his glasses blown off his face...the most fun I had was being blown uphill whilst feeling like I was actually descending. I stopped to wait for Mrs RJ a couple of times and could lean back off the downs at a reasonable angle with the wind keeping me upright! Some participants got lost and quite a few dropped out. I hope everyone kept safe over the weekend.
Not bonkers at all, Brer - the closer I got to my 100th the more nervous I felt. I think that the injury I had picked u a few weeks earlier played on my mind, although the morning of the 100th was much better so make sure you enjoy it!!! I hope your foot doesn't give you issues on the day.
How many left for you now TRex?
Well done FR - only 11 to go!! I swore I would never dip for the line in a marathon, except when I heard the official timekeeper shouting "56, 57, 58, 59" to finish in 3h59m59s a couple of months ago.
I don't know you churn out that mileage JD - when I tried to do that amount I tore my quad, but I know I don't do enough miles generally (which might be the issue); great PB for you though, especially in difficult conditions.
Good running Chrissi and SD, especially in relative adversity...
Thanks for the update FOOW - keep us posted with developments...
Apologies for recent radio silence - nasty virus (courtesy of my daughter) laid me up for three weeks, followed by catching up with work and covering childcare for the rest of February. Back running again, and looking at ultras this year as I seem to have managed to get a waitlist place on the North Downs Way 100 in August; I'm slightly daunted having never run further than 54 miles before. Also having to repay my childcare debts from last year so training and ultra long runs will be at a premium.
