God description there John Bach, except you didn't mention the weather FR, like the sound of the Scotland events, have made a decision that other than London I am not doing any hyped-up city marathons next year. That said, I've just deferred my York marathon place until next year because of..well, I can't be arsed with the hassle to be honest!
Packed for next jaunt but I am such a prat sometimes. Went out for a little pre-ultra marathon and marathon back to back jog and ended up doing 23 miles. Taper-over rated!!! We'll see. Not done it yet but this time I may have pushed the limits however pulled in an hour's BlackBerrying which yielded a mountain. Crumble anyone?
All good training for SNOD Fenland Runner, was that in Scotland? Not done one in Scotland yet, next year's mission is to get a little further afield.
Washed my kit and re-packed for the next round of lunacy. Ultramarathon in Whitby plus fish n chips on Saturday then marathon in Halifax on Sunday
Nurse Gladys..it was a lovely plod, beautiful coastline and couldn't be happier to taking it all in.
Jason, how goes the training for Abingdon? You will storm a PB there but book digs soon as the prices rocketed a month before, mine was 68 quid but same place ramped it up another 40 quid in the last week as runners were making last minute efforts to get a bed.
Love Endures, I love those bars. Send the over to me over the virtual network Glad you got a place in the end buddy, look forward to meeting you.
Oh SD,sorry not to see you at Snod this year..are you sure you can't do it? You may regret not being there,I've ordered sunshine and light breeze for the day plus a karaoke's special at JD's plush choice of pubs! Well,Northumberland marathon is absolutely stunning.Tough course but wow! Plodded as planned so only 4th lady but I finished feeling ok.Will have to see what damage I've done overnight. So worth it,managed to get sunburnt and Craster kippers ????!
Back from canal land and am exhausted, those locks have done me in! Good to see everyone in full Snowdon marathon training Off to Northumberland in a moment to do the coastal marathon. It will have to be a bimble though as foot not quite right. Will enjoy the scenery and have some good banter along the way and hope for a non DNF! Happy bank holiday everyone!
Hello from canal land,great to hear everyone's news.I heard about the mountain race Panad,glad it worked out reasonably well.House stuff sounds good,I may have to come and have a nosey when over in October???? Hiya John,hope all is well with you. Jason,you are storming back to it buddy! I appear to have bust something in my heel so may have to lay off for a day or two. Locks are killing me anyway,I will have opened and closed 266 of the damn things by the end of the holiday???? Have a good time at Bryn Gloch SD.
