Keith - well done on the fast time! That's awesome going after a double
Big G - certainly. I was just wondering as the guy appeared to be very fit.
Mamafox - can you tell the mantra's that i tell myself during a race?
Shades - that is strange about your foot. Could it be something related to blood flow? I can't get to Tralee easily enough to make it worthwhile. I was thinking of trying to tie a race onto a family visit but i'm not sure yet.
I've just read that our EA subs allows us to run IAAF races without needing a medical letter. A guy up our way has just had this confirmed in an email by Florence Marathon. That'll save a bit of hassle / money ...
Britrisky - I wouldn't risk that in Paris without contacting the organisers for confirmation. It's not an IAAF regulation, it's a French regulatory thing - you also need a medical certificate for other sorts of events such as triathlon and cross-country ski races.
Completely agree with RR. I wouldnt risk this. I'm not sure if it was for that reason but there was someone last year from another group that tried using the EA Subs' and when they got to Paris they had to run around on saturday to try and find a french doctor to write them one
RR - do you think if there was an email confirmation from the organisers that it'd be worth it? I also have EA subs but never want to risk it. I have enough issues with them accepting my original medical certificate
