Paul, there were a few forumites running as Oompah Lumpahs in the Belfast marathon. HMM usually runs as a 4.30 pacer. As you say though, the forum is much quieter these days but I think that's due to people using Facebook more now. If anything, the running scene here is busier than ever due to the interest generated by the parkruns, C25K, Jog Belfast, Born2Run etc. It's great to see!
Well done on the 5 miles, Leslie. I was out myself for an easy 3 mile run after circuits, although it was baltic. I'm enjoying the running at the moment as was bothered with anterior knee pain last year, but that has gone and not having any particular aches & pains now. Long may it last. I've got a few more 10ks coming up, then I'm in for the Dune half marathon. I just need to get the mileage up now so got in an 11 mile run at the weekend.
Hi VDOT52. We're not ignoring you. Mags is the authority on this. Athletics NI issues the athlete numbers here but, as it is a part of UK Athletics, I would thought that the online retailers should accept our numbers. I've never tried it though.
