I will be running this as well, although I entered after the packs were sent out so I'm not sure whether I will be getting a pack before the day or not? Don't want to hassle the organisers just yet if they have had problems sending the packs out anyway.
My entry was a stroppy entry after failing to achieve the time I wanted at Mablethorpe Marathon at the start of the month. Not sure a band-aid marathon was necessarily the way forward, but this will be number 10 for me!
I normally run about 30+ miles per week at an average of 9mm-10mm, quicker for speedwork.
I have a week off coming up. My boyfriend does not. I would like to get out for some more long runs in this week, purely for the enjoyment. If I stick to running very slowly does this decrease my chance of injury or is it too risky to run much more than 35 miles due to my current mileage?...
And, as has already been mentioned, a lot does rely on bus companies. Yesterday, several schools were shut in our area, but not our school. The bus company let the school know that morning that it would not be running, meaning nearly 1000 kids would not have their usual bus journey to school. Several parents of children that walk to school/drive their child to school did not send their children in in the morning anyway, and of those that did, nearly half had been in to collect their child by lunchtime. My last lesson of the day had six students in!
I'm a high school teacher and have never worked in a school that shut for a 'snow day' although I know many do. A few years ago, when I first got my current job I was commuting from North Norfolk to Cambridgeshire each day whilst waiting for the sale of my new house (much closer to work!) to go through and when it snowed I simply got up at 3am (instead of 4:15) to leave for work to ensure I got there safely and on time. Not everybody had the same attitude and I was rather annoyed at those that stayed at home due to 'unsafe conditions' when they lived within 10 minute drives of the school!
