Why can't race organisers etc post on these forums? Lots of comments on other companies paying RW to advertise. So all the small events etc are supposed to pay loads to RW. Sorry state of affairs when you can't post. Plus I must have missed all the paid event advertisements. Can't see any at the moment.
Surely we should be supporting these type of events. If you don't like the posts don't read them.
If we are forcing these companies to pay to advertise their events then it won't be long before they will diminish completely.
FB - you need to get a life mate. Read one of these posts. Instead of blubbing, say something positive. I don't think too many people could care a less whether they've posted on TriTalk. I've got over 3500 posts on TriTAlk. According to you I'm ok to post my new event but other people aren't. Doubt I've ever posted anything else other than rubbish so that's ok eh .
I really think we should be supporting these events . The negative posters should perhaps focus on the training instead of meaningless waffle about paying for adverts.
Interesting thread. I've done a few marathons and a couple of ironmans. Hats off to Ben. Really interests me how far / much people do and I'm sure as you say Ben people do a lot more. I love reading about what people have done, it definitely inspires me.
Furthest I've ever run is 52 miles but next year I'm planning to do the Centurion grand slam of 4 x 100,s. Probably very unwise but you only live once.
I obviously won't post here as LLB,Lirish and cragchick will get terribly upset, lol, hilarious replies above IMO
I really enjoyed it even though I ran my slowest marathon ever, I've cycled 112 miles round Lanzarote and then run a marathon 1 hour faster than today. I found it tough going in places especially that bit 18 miles in with the thick / sticky clay. The section down the forest was also pretty slow for me, I must be a wuss descending as I was concentrating so hard not to turn my ankle over
