Snowdonia Marathon 2014

TRex - the main train and the runners set out at the same time the train trundles along to the end of the line and back (for your route) and we run a route thats as close to the line as possible with various obstacles like mud, bogs, mud, hills, mud and try to get back to the finish before the train   (i have no chance of beating my 10K train unless it breaks down)

JD - you have a serious shopping habit  love that you were colour co-ordinated

Really liking this cooler weather for running

Since handing the SNOD baton over to Mandy i've had a lovely few runs just bimbling around because i want to with no pressure  

Race The Train 10k number arrived today

Not sure i'll be going to Borth Beach 10k tomorrow after all it would of been hard enough on a nice day never mind with a howling ex hurricane lashing the beach.  But who knows will not make any decisions until lunchtime tomorrow when it's time to leave the house.

Hope it doesn't affect anyones races/long runs tomorrow

Mandy - are you still looking for a place ?????

I'm still running but only low milage as i keep breaking one way or another (last was falling over walking the dogs and wrenching my back - very ouchy for a few days) so realistically i'm not going to get my miles up enough for a happy SNOD  but i reckon i'll be able to get up to half again so will probably do Conwy in November and best bit is Mr C will do it as well - he's got the running bug properly after TMW - so every cloud eh.

Oh and we're doing a beach 10K next weekend and if we haven't drowned RTT 10K the weekend after. 

Sportstest - road shoes are fine

Bit of a blip over the weekend i blame the weather

To be honest the thought of long runs is scaring me slightly at the moment can't quite get my head around it all

Panad - are you doing Snowdon today ????? good luck if yes

Brer - and anyone else racing (or even long running) this weekend hope the weather doesn't cause too many problems.

We've just had a few rumbles first thing this morning so far but plenty of rain but the BBC map for 4 o'clock looks a little scary - hopefully ok tomorrow as i'm off to investigate a new route

I'm back  at 4am with dogs to collect at 9 so feeling seriously knackered now.  Think i may hve a little more excess baggage after 2 weeks all inclusive in Lanzarote but i did do a couple of 4 mile runs (how the hell some of you guys race in that heat i'll never know i settled for some serious spectating at the Fiesta race on Saturday morning) walked up a volcano and a lot of happy wandering along the promenade mean i'm all rested and ready for SNOD training

Katherine - you'll probably be ok with water stations i carried a bottle in my belt last time and hardly touched it

SD - glad hand ok
