Snowdonia Marathon 2015

Posted: Yesterday at 20:48

Jono..100 miles...thud. Not for me, that I feel may be one challenge too many. Heads down and achieve the target for the year!

John, fair point if it involves another individual's entry. Good luck on recovery though, what is your next challenge?

SD, I agree totally with your clubmate. Total groundhog event at Shakespeare, nothing to look at except lengths of airfield but it was flat and not windy. Oh well, that is the positives done!   Now, if I were to start the superlatives about Snod...

Well done on Broadway, I don't know how I missed that one in my schedule. It sounds fab.

Panad, hi! How's renovations going?

Trex, where are you buddy? Are you lost somewhere on the Brecon Beacons?

Run Jono, are you marathoned out yet? I think I am, everything is falling apart. My mind, my body and sanity. Should hit 49 by midnight on New Years Eve, Ultra on New Years Day then it will just have to be 2 a month next year.

John up boyo, thrash it. Oh, perhaps you have more respect for your body than Jono and I have.

Inside Forward, looks interesting route. Seems very different from usual one.

Hello Team, glad to see plans are in place for 2015

Jono, well done on the PB many maras are you up to now in year of madness?

Yeh Chimney, a good thrash in mud does you good. Good luck at Clowne, I would join you but am elsewhere!

Marathon 42 of the year passed by without too much issue. Autumn Shakespeare on Saturday. I was very careful due to recent scare so bimbled around a very flat course in 3.40 mins, could have been at least 10-15 mins faster I reckon but care was required!  This weekend takes me to numbers 43 and 45, a back to back in sunny Cleethorpes

Chrissi..Echinacea and loads of vit drinks. If you aren't coughing, don't worry about-you'll be fine. Are you at Conwy Panad?

Dave, as it is a Saturday, there are regular buses straight back to Bangor.

Just watched film, isn't that great?

I know that x rays are not always conclusive so am mindful there may be more to it. Pain virtually gone now but as you say Panad, it was a close call. So, you are back in the saddle. I hope you have a mighty big padlock for it

Quick pop in , disaster at marathon 41 of the year on Saturday..Hardmoors Goathland job. Bust my foot at mile 8 and had to run/hobble the other 20 through rivers, swamps and ..well, it nearly broke me. The weather was appalling..nearly, nearly pulled out but battled on.   However, ended up in A and E yesterday with poss stress fracture however X ray today ruled it out.    Brer lives to fight on !

Cheers for best wishes for OH, he is in full grumpy depressed mode because op was not conclusive and we may need a repeat scenario. It isn't a major serious illness but does have massive impact when you are self employed.

Chrissi, with you on the off road joy. I'm off to Goathland for Hardmoors marathon this weekend and cant wait. Brutal but beautiful!

Chimney, we really must plan a run over your way. It is so close to me yet I never think of having a trot around there. Treat the missus to pie and chips at Clowne Miners Welfare-that should do it!

Well, off on a lovely school residential tomorrow. Brilliant stuff, abseiling, caving, night walking, BMXing. Oh, I have to take children? Really? Here's to 72 hrs with very little sleep!!

UDS, will be staying at my usual haunt but thank you anyway for going to all that effort and putting the offer out. May be we could have post run drinkies there. I'd be up for getting food and stuff sorted.

Running Eye, sorry you didn't feel you could pop in for a chat-next year!

Chrissi, thank you for good wishes. However, good sense regarding my on- going cold and OH having an operation yesterday meant I decided to do just the one today 2nd lady but it is such a tough course psychologically I can never get a very good time. But, deed is done  NUMBER 40 of 2014  Thud! I need a beer now!

Great to hear from you Panad!

When do we turn the lights out in this forum? I always feel a bit sad when we depart from one to another, but hey..let's go!

Oops, just tried it. It's linked to mine so just ignore that  but I assume you can put a new name in and get your own!

Anybody fancy a little certificate of their achievement on Saturday                                                   Hope that works! Just print the table of your results and it turns it into a certificate.
