Not bonkers at all, Brer - the closer I got to my 100th the more nervous I felt. I think that the injury I had picked u a few weeks earlier played on my mind, although the morning of the 100th was much better so make sure you enjoy it!!! I hope your foot doesn't give you issues on the day.
How many left for you now TRex?
Well done FR - only 11 to go!! I swore I would never dip for the line in a marathon, except when I heard the official timekeeper shouting "56, 57, 58, 59" to finish in 3h59m59s a couple of months ago.
I don't know you churn out that mileage JD - when I tried to do that amount I tore my quad, but I know I don't do enough miles generally (which might be the issue); great PB for you though, especially in difficult conditions.
Good running Chrissi and SD, especially in relative adversity...
Thanks for the update FOOW - keep us posted with developments...
Apologies for recent radio silence - nasty virus (courtesy of my daughter) laid me up for three weeks, followed by catching up with work and covering childcare for the rest of February. Back running again, and looking at ultras this year as I seem to have managed to get a waitlist place on the North Downs Way 100 in August; I'm slightly daunted having never run further than 54 miles before. Also having to repay my childcare debts from last year so training and ultra long runs will be at a premium.
Go for it Chrissi!! Everyone I've spoken to says COD events are good (not done one myself though).
Hey Brer - how did you crack your rib? I didn't realise you were carrying an injury. Colds are a pain and you get over sooner or later, but a cracked rib? Are you able to run through it?
Back on the wagon again now - 30-miler in the Surrey Hills to kick off the running year. Great weather, lovely scenery, plenty of mud and stunning views across the North Downs and Weald. On a day like that it's nice to run a relaxed ultra without worrying about time (or numbers FR). I must admit I am finding it hard to wean myself off looking for a marathon to run every spare weekend, so Mrs RJ is busy trying to book up my spare time with childcare or social engagements...
