Can anyone recommend a spring marathon up north other than Windermere? I like the smaller ones with interesting scenery. I also wouldn't mind a bit of off road. This is presuming I don't get in to London....thank you.
Just popping in to say hi! Yeh! Congratulations Big G on your marathon, recover well
Busy couple of weeks for me as I have just had a significant birthday! I was born when England won the football world cup. I have been out with work colleagues, had a small party and just returned from a lovely weekend in London with my 3 sisters. I have a spa trip planned when my daughter returns from the Philippines, meal out and possibly a city break in the Autumn....I actually feel better than 10 years ago, the year I started running! My goals are to run another marathon, look into off road trail running and maybe even an ultra......
Hope everyone is ok. Will try to read back on the thread when I have a mo
Thank you Big G and Shades! Managed at last! Here is the view from just outside the cottage at Calgary Bay. It was great to run along the beach and out along the headland at the back of the photo. Also to paddle straight after my runs!
I am way behind with the thread. All the best to MF and others racing today. Sorry you didn't make the cut off Shades but sounds like a sensible decision.
Mull was lovely. Hot and sunny everyday! I managed a few runs at beginning of week. I will try and post photos of my views. Is it possible on a phone?! I ran along Calgary beach, through woods, along a headland. Wonderful! On Wed my hubby and I climbed Ben More, the only Monroe on Mull. Very tough and haven't run since. Hopefully today I will. We did other walks, visited Iona, took a boat trip to Lunga and Staffa and lots more. Sad to leave.
