Apologies for the flying visit. I arrived home tonight and Mrs GD told me that our daughters are at the in-laws, please pack my bag including swimming trunks, walking shoes and running kit for the 10k Sunday as she's taking my away for my birthday! So probably won't be posting now until late on Sunday (family meal out straight after race). All the best to OO at Keswick and Badbark on Monday plus anyone else racing this weekend. Bye for now!
2nd May – Belfast Marathon – Badbark - Sub 3 21st May - White Peak - Gul Darr - 320 - 3.30 21st May - White Peak - Poacher - stay honest. 29th May - Comrades - BI - sub-9 29th May – Newry Marathon – Badbark – Sub 3 11th June – Portumna 100k Ultra – Badbark – Sub 9 hours as my ‘A’ goal. Finish with any time as my ‘B’ Goal - (My only DNF 2 years ago after 85k) 18th June - Race the Wall 100K - Lorenzo - no real idea, but I've told people at work that I'm aiming for under 12 hours so I'll stick that in. 25th June – Victoria Park Belfast, 12 hour race – Badbark – Run till I drop 24th July - Outlaw - thread smackdown - Slokey Joe and Moof 25th September– Berlin Marathon - G-Dawg - Sub-3.10...why not!? 25th September– Berlin Marathon - MsE - TBC 23rd October - Abingdon Marathon - Lorenzo - sub 3:05 23rd October - Abingdon Marathon - LB70 - 3:09:59 23rd Oct - Abingdon - Jason T 3.14.59
LB70 - it's the Thetford Iceni marathon on 11th Sept; so very handy for me. A low key event, but would be enjoyable. There's a Norfolk Coastal marathon on 29th Oct (a Saturday which suits me). The course hasn't been announced yet, but I guess it's around the same area. I'm guessing this would be quite a bit slower still, but not too concerned with that. If I'm still looking for GFA then I might be looking at the dreaded Raceways Shakespeare again. Lorenzo - same as it ever was sub 40.
LB70 - pleased you got a place at Abingdon after all. Lorenzo - only 4 days left for me! Racing list is looking healthy again. I have half an eye on a local trail marathon in September. Last run before the 10k this morning; just 3 slow miles.
