Holy hell, more nutters! Oh well, if I wake up early enough I might join you!

Trex, that unearthly start for the ultra was in August and the sunrise happened  soon after the start at 5.30 am..and it happened on beautiful tranquil sandy beaches not Bwylch Y Groes. 

Hiya Chrissi, hope all is well.

When does the third lap start Duane?, don't put ideas into my head!

Oh actually, this does sound rather appealing now I think about it. Finish the first lap, re-fuel at Y Pantri and go back over the grim bits before it gets dark and well.. a great evening out. Tis only a little ultra after all

UDS, I guess the target time reference is mainly for me as I have set off with a target time for Snod so many times but then some beastly calamity happens mainly due to the weather. One year I was pinned to a stone wall by the wind and a marshall had to come and haul me off it. However, forecast looking ok at the moment but as we know, strange things happen nearer the day and the rain forgets it isnt supposed to be there!!

Jono, Saturday will be marathon number 170. What about you? I'm hoping to pop into Y Pantri at some point Friday evening so may see you. I fancy the idea of a Fri/Sat double but for the life of me, I cant imagine getting up at silly o clock on Sat morning to do it twice in one day. TRex, you have eclipsed my levels of insanity and I shall certainly be getting you a pint of Llanberis' finest if you pull it off

Hey Jono, you are back! Thanks for all your messages, I just go and do them without target time and just enjoy them. It is all a warm-up for the final event of the year ..10 marathons in 10 days courtesy of SVN Running on the Kent coast.

This will be the ultimate test of of my endurance and sanity after so many events this year. But.. I can always walk away.

Running is a hobby, start taking it too seriously and it becomes miserable. Snowdonia marathon is the perfect it for all it throws at you. Don't worry about target times just enjoy it!

No more on the injury bench now guys, take it easy this week!! Jolly at 6.30 sounds good, Trex may have decided to do the triple by then so we may not see him!

Leicester happened, it was ok. A bit hillier than I remember but not quite to Snod standard. Bimbled round nice and steady in 3.46 to complete marathon 50 in 50 weeks.

Will be fab to see usual folks around again Llanberis and especially to meet any new Snod forum folks in the evening. Come and join us, we are harmless!!

UDS, that pacing makes me feel ill 

Bit beleaguered at the moment, pulled out of marathon at weekend as felt rough/stomach issues and wiped out.Still feel a little odd. Hope this is not going to be long in 1 day from now as have Leicester marathon on Sunday as last training run.

TRex, I'll be at Pen Llyn again-I loved it.

Ok, everyone take care now-no broken legs tripping over a trolley at Tesco at this stage please
