TRex, not at Abo or any other marathon this weekend as funds have run out. So did 24 miles on my onesome! Bit late but good luck for tomorrow. Look out for Jason, he seems to have vaporised! Hope he is ok.
Stu, I plod around in Asics GT 1000. I've run a marathon with a pair straight out of the box. They are for slightly over-pronators, don't know if that helps!
Jervoise, my choice for trail marathon/ultras are Salomon Speedcross 3. Awesome grip but great support unlike the innov8 ones I've got.
Oh, I've just realised that all being well...I'll be in my caravan in Waunfawr this time next week..enjoying a beer pre the best marathon in the World (in my humble opinion!). Managaed to avoid a last minute entry into any marathon this weekend so it will be a gentle 20 mile lsr tomorrow and 10 on Sunday.
Dare I mention I've just looked at BBC long range forecast for next Saturday? I hope it is correct but know better than to rely on it!
Ivan, you do about the same road times as me. My problem with Snod is the final descent into Llanberis...it is brutal. But if you aint bothered about breaking a leg at that point, go for it! I walk it and so lose a lot of time. I did 3hrs 51 last year BUT conditions were very good. Hope that helps
Fenners, will be my 82nd marathon. We are chasing that shirt boy!!
Chrissi, if you do come to support I will be wearing a Buff headscarf-with Welsh dragons on it
Hello Team Snodders, just returned from a blistering 17 miler in wind and rain...yeh, nice to acclamatise to forthcoming weather at Eryri. Yes Chimney, I believe I was first at York marathon, that is, first to nearly collapse of hypothermia at the beginning . I'm in the Yorkshire Post photos and a ravishing dude I look too
Great news, gaffer has agreed to let me have Friday afternoon off so will be meandering my way over to digs at a sensible time. Get sorted, registered then into Y Pantri for some fantastic coffee. Are we having a meeting time?
Great to see some familiar names here again, please come and join us at Y Pantri if you are in Llanberis on Friday, early evening.
