Snowdonia Marathon 2014

Posted: 27/08/2014 at 20:37

God description there John Bach, except you didn't mention the weather FR, like the sound of the Scotland events, have made a decision that other than London I am not doing any hyped-up city marathons next year. That said, I've just deferred my York marathon place until next year because of..well, I can't be arsed with the hassle to be honest!

Packed for next jaunt but I am such a prat sometimes. Went out for a little pre-ultra marathon and marathon back to back jog and ended up doing 23 miles. Taper-over rated!!! We'll see. Not done it yet but this time I may have pushed the limits however pulled in an hour's BlackBerrying which yielded a mountain. Crumble anyone?

All good training for SNOD Fenland Runner, was that in Scotland? Not done one in Scotland yet, next year's mission is to get a little further afield.  

Washed my kit and re-packed for the next round of lunacy. Ultramarathon in Whitby plus fish n chips on Saturday then marathon in Halifax on Sunday

Nurse was a lovely plod, beautiful coastline and couldn't be happier to taking it all in.

Jason, how goes the training for Abingdon? You will storm a PB there but book digs soon as the prices rocketed a month before, mine was 68 quid but same place ramped it up another 40 quid in the last week as runners were making last minute efforts to get a bed.

Love Endures, I love those bars. Send the over to me over the virtual network Glad you got a place in the end buddy, look forward to meeting you.

Back from canal land and am exhausted, those locks have done me in! Good to see everyone in full Snowdon marathon training  Off to Northumberland in a moment to do the coastal marathon. It will have to be a bimble though as foot not quite right. Will enjoy the scenery and have some good banter along the way and hope for a non DNF! Happy bank holiday everyone!

Hiya John,hope all is well with you. Jason,you are storming back to it buddy! I appear to have bust something in my heel so may have to lay off for a day or two. Locks are killing me anyway,I will have opened and closed 266 of the damn things by the end of the holiday???? Have a good time at Bryn Gloch SD.

Well,yesterday's marafun in the sun was a tad slower but came in 2nd lady so reasonably pleased. Look like I've been to Tenerife instead of Northampton!! Torquayrunner,I have similar pack,much better than waist belt except my back gets a bit warm in this heat so I tend not to bother and just pop in a shop for liquid if required.  Wabo, if you require hills,I'll send you some of the horrible ones that I am surrounded by!!  20 miles for me tomorrow,a little recovery run before I go on hols on my narrow boat- that is the cue for a complete weather change! It will rain for the next 3 weeks

Sorry Mandy, chap didn't come to marathon today who had spoken of selling place. No probs Katherine.

Phew, what a scorchathon today. Great to see Jono again today. It was 30 degrees when I finished at Run around the Reservoir in Northampton. 1st lady in 3:37 and about 3 stone lighter due to fluid loss! Round 2 of marathon weekend tomorrow-it will be painful

Hiya Katherine, any of stretch of road from Beddgelert to Waunfawr is good esp. if you want a bit of extra support after half way. It is a bit of a trudge as a runner so you may welcome a familiar face at this point. There is a pub-Snowdon Parc just before Waunfawr itself which has a large car park and a lot of people congregate there. Hope that helps.
