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
Really good time last night rodney well done, super night for it and incredible amount of runners going sub 16, really strong field last night, great results too for the club winning the mens team again this year, some top performances
unfortunately for me my legs still had sundays 10km in them, one of my miles was slower than any of them on sunday - so my slowest queens race in 4 years, bit of a disasterous one, will be sure to space out the races from now on!
Rodney, im doing the 5k, not sure how the legs will be after armagh 10k on sunday past, but will give it a good go - I've also never done a 3k distance, might look at it next year, i think the races take off at a different time which is good, the course can be quite busy as i remember
