Long time no post in this forum for me. Just read the past couple of pages. Some sad and tough stuff has happened to people here, which puts running into perspective.
FYI I am trying to get my running back on track, after a summer working away from home, house move and new job I neglected my running somewhat and gained a few kilos. Then I got my London marathon entry response back. I'm in! Cue need to turn things around.
I have started cyclin to work 5 miles x 2 each working day. Joined my local running club Reigate Priory Athletic club, run a few parkruns, done a few long runs on Sunday mornings, and today re-engaged with the forum that gave me such inspiration for my 1st marathon last year.
i am planning to get fitter and faster than I ever was before, and to see a substantial reduction on my marathon time, but I know it is not going to be easy.
i am also looking to set up a new junior parkrun in Reigate, but have been too busy with work to do much about that.
All the best for everyone here
