I've just moved to Hadlow, near Tonbridge in Kent and would like to join a local, friendly running club. I ran the London Marathon this year, but am just a plodder, and don't want to compete. I'm not very good so get put off by the local big clubs like the Harriers or the AC. I really just want to plod around and make some local friends!
Thanks everyone! I know I should just ignore them, but it is annoying. I am very proud, and so are the majority of the people around me, and certainly the ones that matter to me are proud of us. It's just annoying that people think they have the right to try and belittle something like this, whether they've run it themselves before or not.
Thank you all though. And many, many congratulations to all who finished, no matter what their time!
