rozee - there's nothing in your public profile so I can't email you! can you email me (from my public profile!) details of the Nottingham event. there are three of us wanting to do a tri so that sounds like a good starter event. cheers.
Samantha, I finished in 4hr36. really enjoyed most of the experience but had a horrible slump between 16-20. ran all the way although I must have stopped for about 10mins chatting to friends and family on the way round. considering I hadn't fully recovered from the viral infection I didn't do too badly but somehow feel disappointed with the time! I had a day at the Sanctuary today to recover so had lots of time to think and I'm now thinking that if I get a ballot place and I can find someone to run with then I'm considering doing FLM again next year - I'm supposed to be doing a triathlon with a friend in August so maybe I'll feel differently after that!
agree that we should have had irremovable smileys and made better plans to meet up but hindsight's a wonderful thing! it was great that a few of you made contact and got to run with each other for a bit.
forgot to say well done to rozee - you must be well chuffed with your time and not having to think about doing another one now!
