well done andy, i havnt run derry marathon before but i hear good things about it from everyone whos done it,
Ran lisburn 10k last night, another big big turnout especially for the 10k, warm enough conditions too as usual - still a tough start, very crowded but in general I enjoyed it - there was a big debate on their facebook page when they mentioned the no headphones rule, but they seemed to backtrack a bit after the reaction! Personally I dont run with headphones, certainly would never race with them anyway, and completely agree with the rule by the athletics board - I'm probably not the only one to have been almost knocked over by someone completely zoned out with headphones on when in a race!
Thanks rodney, will definitely get down to give it a go sometime hopefully in the next month or so!
Anyone from the forum do the belfast marathon? I decided to give it a miss this year in terms of the full distance, just got a relay team together and I must say the hilly antrim road stretch isnt nearly as bad when you're finishing at gideons green!
that said, after a sit down I ended up running to the finish anyway due to the absolute dire organisation regarding buses to the finish! same old same old im afraid from belfast marathon...at least the weather was good, wind aside!
London looked superb at the weekend, i've done it the last two years but was watching it on tv this year myself - well done to everyone who ran it though, conditions were much better than they had predicted!
Rodney, whats the ecos parkrun like? Never done it before, i usually stick to the waterworks but I tried the valley last week and hoping to get round a few different ones in the coming weeks
Not that I wanted an accurate time personally after the disaster I had, but i agree - with them having the chips on the numbers and a mat at the end, I'm not quite sure why they didn't have one at the start - it does seem an oversight for such a big 5k event as Queens
