Fingers crossed Brer that you make it for Sunday but I guess you have probably signed up for Denzil's latest madness on the 11th - which looks brutal - so perhaps a rest is in order. Hope to see you there shin permitting.
Hi all. Just back from a lovely internet free week in Wales recovering from the TMW. A top race and great to see you Chrissi. Some tough marshalling conditions as there was also a meeting of the world population of midges that morning! Managed to knock 10 mins off last year's time so happy enough with that.
Well done Mr R that sounds brutal stuff. I did think about you as I drove home over the Breacon Beacons on Sat.
Talking of brutal that was another busy weekend Brer. Don't know how you do it.
Off to Stoke for the Potteries Marathon this Sunday for marathon number 70. Could be a warm one
Well done FR on marathon #95 and great time at the dreaded 5km!
Brer, did you enjoy the Holly marathon last weekend? Looked like it was a bit wet!
Chrissi, it is a shame you won't be toeing the start line on Sat but thank you for marshalling instead. How is the injury going?
It has been touch a go if I would make TMW. My real life lazy Greyhound suffered a stroke while I was out walking her 10 days ago. Two nights at the specialist vets and an eye watering bill later she is back home and has recovered well enough for the vet to give us the ok to be able to take her to Wales.
A general lack of running over the last couple of weeks and sleepless nights spent with the hound has left me feeling less than confident going into TMW but I will give it a go. I will stop and say hello or try to if my lungs will let me after The Sting!
