On just a slightly different note, I logged on to thank Bryan Dale, the photographer on the day for taking over 2,000 photos at 6 different locations, then uploading them onto the Internet, where I could download them for free. I really appreciate this very kind gesture of goodwill. Thank you Bryan.
Thanks for the info on the race on your website Bryan, http://racephotos,org.uk I am going to give this one a go. A bit vain me, I like my free souvenir photo . I have given up on chasing PBs on flat, soulless courses. Everyone is eye balls out, no time for supporting one another. Hopefully on Sunday there will be camaraderie, mutual respect and time for me to share my jelly babies. Also I am looking forward to finishing the race in the Pavilion Gardens, I have fond memories of visiting it regularly as a child with my parents. Have a good one everyone, lets hope the sun shines.
Above it says the race has 250 entries, can someone post the current situation. I get to know about a lot of the races I do from Bryan Dale's Racephotos website and he says that the figure has risen to over 300. At the moment I am unsure if I can make the race, so if places are still available I will probably just turn up on the day. As I am travelling down from Stoke, it would be nice to know if the race had not reached its limit. Thank you.
Pretty tough, but I got close to my PB on the course, so considering the heavy rain and strong winds I am really pleased with myself. I have been training hard for this race, so it's nice when things come together.
All of this would not have been possible without the superb race organisation. Well done to all concerned.
Thanks again Bryan, for providing excellent momemtoes of a momenteous occasion
I smile to myself as I thought about a comment from Usain Bolt's coach. He said that Usain might not break the World Record in the Olympics as the weather in Great Britain is not conducive to running fast times. Hell man, he is only out there for 9.5 seconds, he wants to try it for 4 hours.
