Mr V - you can also qualify with a sub-1:15 half? Someone in our club aimed for a 2:45 in his first marathon. Wheels did come off but think he still managed 2:53 or something.
Well done, Lit! Who needs training, eh?!
Rather you than me, Madbee. Hope you survived unscathed.
Welcome, Velloo! Glad to have more ladies in there. But I am disappointed that I'll be the slowest woman on the thread by loads.
Good news on the Manchester debacle handling, Skinny.
My legs are feeling ok today. I think I may chance a buggy run tomorrow. If for no other reason than we're Cornwall bound at the weekend and I want to do a bit of coast path running (most likely run/walking as it is a b***h and I'm def not pushing).
I quite fancy that Birmingham run, just from the perspective of being able to have no travelling type faffing.
In the spirit of moving onwards and upwards I have entered Bristol half in September and shall be aiming to earn a Championship spot via the medium of a sub-1:30 half. Which I may or may not use. Anyone else fancy it?
I think I lost friends at the school gates by opining about those obstacle races, Stevie G. I think they think I'm elitist. They may be right but when I want to wallow about in mud I do a cross country race that is free for me to enter via my club as opposed to one race that costs more than my annual club subscription.
