I would run Woodley again as it has such good pb potential. There was a flyer on the car when we got back to it for something called the Dorney Dash, another 10k, in early July. That's supposed to be totally flat as well so I might give that one a go as well.
We're off to Murcia in Spain for a couple of weeks. A friend of the father-in-law has let us have his villa at a bit of a reduced rate so it would be rude not to really. Will miss the first England game though as that's the day we fly back.
Would recommend Disneyland Paris, been a couple of times. We drove (well, I drove) down the last time last year, straight off the early morning shuttle and arrived in the early afternoon. We preferred the Davy Crockett ranch accomodation, gives you a bit more freedom to come and go as you please, although you do have to rely on a car or shuttle bus to get to the park itself.
The Woodley 10k was very flat, only a couple of small inclines that I can remember and one of those was running up to the finish. Have you done the Horsham run before? Once I get back from holiday, I'm going to see what's about and try and book a few runs. I suppose the next target is to get under 54 minutes and go from there.
Watched the cup final at the outlaws house who are West Ham supporters! The missus refused to watch the penalties. Good game for the neutrals though, just hope Gerrard can repeat that a few times in Germany. Talking of which, good signing in Ballack? But who will have to give way for him to play?
Well, I decided to go ahead and do the Woodley 10k, managed to get a pb and came in just under the 55 minute mark in 54:55. Not exactly whippet-like but when I consider that 2 years ago my pb was something like 1 hour 16 minutes or so, it's an improvement! Now I suppose the next aim is to get under 54 minutes and just go from there. Have you been out recently?
I need to have a count up of a load of change I've been given but they've had just over £1000 from me so far plus I've collected another £300 ready for when I make another trip to the bank. So not much more to collect from people now, thankfully. I don't think I'll be applying for a gold bond place in a hurry either. Getting the money afterwards is harder than running the bleedin' thing. Okay, maybe not quite as hard.
Had a quick look at the NDCS website last night. It says on there that they have entries for next years Marathon available to those that can pledge to raise £1100! What's that all about! Maybe they've got more places for next year so don't need as much off everybody. Have you managed to get most of your sponsorship money collected yet?
