Has anyone entered Berlin marathon as a team? I think last year was the first time you could do that. I'm just wondering if you all have to be living in the same country. I want to run with my sisters but one of them lives in the US. There doesn't seem to be any info about it on the Berlin website.
BigG - great time in those conditions. It sounds like you were very sensible. I'm sure you are enjoying the local beer tonight! Re VLM - I think it is a great idea to fundraise for WAY. You will not be under any pressure as there is no target and it is a cause which is very personal to you.
Cal - very well done! You are cracking out those PBs at the moment!
SK - Well done on 1st lady in your category. I've just seen your pic on FB of the cabbage and beer! And that is a pretty good cash prize as well.
Shades - it feels odd to not have a race report from you this weekend. What on earth did you do with all that spare time this weekend?!
Lily - I think all the marshals do a great job, it can be a pretty thankless task at times. I try and yell thanks when I am able to.
Iain - Shades is right about the GFA for VLM - I have scrutinised it as I am aiming to get a GFA and thought if I could get it when I was 48 I could use it to enter the year I turn 50 when it gets (relatively easier). Still have quite a few years to go though!
Mowzer - I think you have to do London at some point! Perhaps when you've exhausted every other long distance running event in the UK?
Not much running here. I managed to self-inflict myself with a killer hangover yesterday and still wasn't feeling great today so I've been very lazy. I will be back on it tomorrow. I want to enter the Grand Union half in mid-November but its the same day as middle son's cubs remembrance parade so I need to negotiate with my husband. I think he still needs to get over dealing with the marathon last weekend so I'm biding my time a little. Off on holiday on Thursday (Lanzarote) and will be taking my trainers with me to keep my legs ticking over.
