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.

Back to normality time 

Mandy, I may have a contact for you after the weekend, will let you know if I have.

Lol Roy, I am such a weed on the final downhill so I just kept trudging up Bwlch Y Groes aided by another runner. We just kept motivating each other to keep going at a steady trot by hurling abuse at each other

Back to back marathons at the weekend for me, will bring my total up to 25 for the year so far. Jono, are you doing Run the Reservoir jaunt?

Oh Panad, its a day out with treats at The Pantry at the end. Just treat it as a jolly

Off for an ultra in Stratford tomorrow. Still a bit stunned by coming first overall at last week's ultra..small field but still chuffed,30 miles in 4hrs 7 mins.

Jono, I'm 48, less of the zimmer frame comments please. Are you doing reservoir marathon in 2 weeks?

At last, have de-bugged the computer. Hello again, Team Snod! Newcomers, the biggest ascent is at mile 24 and biggest and the most evil descent is at mile 25 then, you dont give a damn unless you are after a marathon pb
