mamafox - I'm sure all that training will reward you.
I'm leaving after lunch. However those pesky French air traffic controllers are up to their tricks and my flight which is not due out until 6pm already has a delay of a couple of hours so I expect it will be along spell at the airport.
so if you see an air traffic controller today give him a kick from me.
I'm signing off now. There's supposed to be free Wi-Fi at each of my hotels but who knows, so I may not be back on here until Friday week.
mamafox - although you're fed up of speedwork, you must be seeing results...otherwise you wouldn't have kept on doing the sessions.
You never know there might be another marathon runner on my holiday trip. There are 400 or so Brits running Budapest marathon and I see from the start list there's a few from Tamar Trotters, who Big G will be familiar with. They are a big (and very friendly) running club from Plymouth and I believe their club is so popular that there is/was a waiting list to join.
Had a lovely run this morning in daylight as I didn't need to go out so early, however the rush hour traffic weren't so pleased with me running at rush hour on the back road which is a rat run. I caused at least 2 traffic jams
Emmy - it's a normal holiday, for non runners. However, it just so happens that the 2 days I'm in Budapest is the day before and the day of the marathon, so it would be rude not to take part. Budapest has been on my 'to do' list for a long time.
SK - yes I noticed the other day that the thread was nearly 10 years old, I had to edit a post and after doing that it returns you to the first page. I'll have to scroll through to see who's the longest serving Shadie!
I going to Prague, Budapest & Vienna, never been to any of these before
mowzer - well done at Mablethorpe, another sub 4 in the bag and yet another prize Bit of luck receiving the flowers too. I can see why you like the race so much I remember the lovely friendly atmosphere. Not sure when I'll do it again as it's a 6+ hour drive for me and it clashes with a lot of other events too.
Lovely dry morning, had a really enjoyable run.
Last day at work today for me until 19th Oct, I'm ridiculously excited about going on my holiday tomorrow
