I know it's a bit 'after the horse has bolted' but have just completed 2 runs recently in aid of my mum who sadly passed away with Lung Cancer as H&W was her favourite charity and they do need every penny they can get! Have attached the link below but managed to do my 20 miler (even though had a calf straing 4 weeks before) and the Shakespeare Half was tough too as suffered with an inflamed achilles 2 weeks before so couldn't run at all until the day. Thanks to anyone willing to listen and please give whatever you can, no amount is too small. http://www.gofundme.com/6zihag
As 2014 is technically Reading's 30th year (as 2001 was cancelled due to foot and mouth), do you feel (the same as me) that they should be producing a special 30th year medal? Just wanted to know what other people who have done this event before thought.
Well done on the training and your improvement made so far. I do my own training plan (gym or swimming once a week, 1 long and 1 short run rest of week). Have done 15 HM's and 3 London Marathon's and it seems to suit me pretty well.
Doing Bristol again as a lovely course but when I did it in 2009 had a cold the week of the race and had near exhaustion at 9 miles (strangely felt fine at 8 miles but went pear-shaped suddeny) so had to walk the rest so not happy about that. Am trying to lay that ghost to rest by hopefully posting somewhere near a 1 hour 50/55 finish.
Should be a nice medal (although my 2009 was a good one) with it being the 25th anniversary and all
