Howday folks. I've been missing in (bike) action for the last 6 weeks or so. Managed not to fall off and break anything, so that's a bonus. I've been ticking over with a few runs, but need to get cracking with some proper marathon training.
I am such a sloooooow reader that it would take me to Christmas to catch up, so what's been happening? I spotted a few new names *waves hello* and that HA has had a baba (congrats). Good to see Ferg back - we all thought you'd popped your clogs. Are you back to full(ish) fitness? Hope so.
Hello everyone - Jimbob pointed me in the direction of this thread. Thanks Jimbob.
I have an NYC place and due to husband's work commitments it's looking increasingly likely I'll be going alone. I wondered if there are any other solo travellers or any If anyone knows of any solo runner groups. I wouldn't want to encroach on anyone else's holiday, of course, but a celebratory post-race drink or two would be nice.
It's looking increasingly likely that I'll be going to NYC on my own, as my husband/family/friends have either work or financial commitments. I would really like to go, as I have my heart set on getting all 6 WMM before I'm past it.
I'm not concerned about travelling alone, but I don't relish the thought of a short break in a big city completely on my own and wondered if there are any running/travelling groups out there who cater for solo runniers. Meet up groups, social gatherings after the race, that kinda thing.
I'm in! New York in Nov and a 95% chance of Chester in October.
I do have a headband knocking around somewhere that I used to use for 'jogging' in the late 80s (bet you were still in nappies or even a twinkle in your daddy's eye back then, Brixton, judging by your youthful good looks). Said headband might get an airing.
Well done on the PB Macca - which marathon did you do?
Brixton - brilliant time for a training run!
Well done on the possible PB Koala. Good run, either way.
I'm still having a post-London hiatus from running. I did the off road costal relay last weekend (our team did really well, considering we're a ramshackle bunch) but mostly I've been back out on my mountain bike.
I need to get a wiggle on though and get training for my local half marathon in August and maintain a certain level of fitness for Chester mara (probably).
