Paris Marathon 2015

I've always run with Mrs O, so I struggle if I have to do any alone. You really can't underestimate the value of company, even if nothing is spoken. 

My goals are all location based. I have a list of marathons in places that I want to run and we'll do one on a big holiday per year. Next year is the Marine Corps marathon but I don't know the confirmed date yet to add it to the list. 

I think 3 per year is probably enough for me.

BMM is it sending you email notifications?

If so, you may have accidentally clicked 'Follow this Thread' when meaning to click 'view first unread post' at the top. 

You will see a message "you are following this forum" at the top and an 'unfollow' button next to it. Click.

Stewart. One of the 'features' of these forums is that's actually quite easy to accidentally ignore someone. That way, you wouldn't see their posts. 

To check if you are ignoring anyone, go to 'My Settings' (top right, under your avatar), then look at 'Forum Settings' and 'Members I Am Ignoring'. If there are any names in there that you don't want to ignore, take them out. 

Hope this solves your problem

LloydR - I've had a similar problem with my hydration pack, bizarrely mine causes pulls just above my waist on the left hand side. 

I no longer use my most valued shirts when wearing my pack

Tricky - that's a very convoluted explanation of how you got a puddle on the floor

Happy Birthday Tink.

Watching the London Marathon was what made me want to run marathons. Every year, I'd watch the finish and see them running past Buck House and think 'I'd love to do that'. 

In 2011, I took it one stage further - I told Mrs O my idea and applied for the ballot. Totally failed to get in and entered Paris instead. The rest is history. 

Still trying to get into London - one day, maybe next year

RR - I know the answer to the triathlon relay question

We watched the British team win the world champs in Hamburg last week (on the tele). 

4 team members, girl, boy, girl, boy. 

Each person runs a triathlon set - swim about 300m, cycle about 3k, run about 1.6k.

As each runner finishes, they touch hands with the next team member and off it goes again.

The dives at the start of the swimming can be a little bit unorthodox. 

Great fun to watch
