My Last Run

Posted: 18/05/2011 at 13:20

Club 10k, actioned in 1hr... Having also cycled that day and run quite a bit the last couple of weeks, my legs were dead!!

Good run, but hard...

All this talk of ultras and weird drinks... Oh dear maybe i've stumbled down the rabbit hole...!

Looking forward to the pub after the marathon, sounds like it'll be another kind of marathon session!!

Wow, that's how you finish a race...

Shame he's passed away at only 24. Elite runner or not, that's too young for anyone to lose their life... sad times.

Simply Run - Simply shocking

Nice thread, getting a bit off topic, but still a fun read...

Glad Simply Run responded in such a positive way, hopefully the OP (and follow up complaint) were both satisfied.

Still amazed that a lot of users on all sorts of sites are so black and white on issues. Love or hate, but rarely in between...

Liking the analogy of RW forum as a party too... Woohoo!!

Snowdonia Marathon 2011

Thanks all for the welcome Am looking forward to some summer training for Snowdonia.

The 2011miles is a year long thing but i'm running half and cycling half, as a long goal, and as a little bit of fundraising. I was going to try Snowdon this year regardless anyway coz it seems awesome.

Does anyone else look at the race profile and just whimper...?!

Best Medals

Posted: 13/05/2011 at 18:47
Best one for me to date has to be the Hardwick X-Stream horse brass. Closely followed by Shakespeare 2011 (first ever marathon)

Although while we're talking about medal i do get annoyed at sharing. Shakespeare has Half and Full on it. MK half just has Festival of running and is given to 10k'ers....

Will post pics soon...

Glad he arrived safe and sound, and none the worse for wear!! I was pleased to meet the little fella, and as time passes the bad memories are disappearing and the good ones are staying.

Shakespeare medal is nice, although call me elitist but the same medal for half and full does annoy me a little....

Snowdonia Marathon 2011

Having finished my first marathon ever at Stratford last weekend i'm now looking forward to #2 in Snowdonia in October.

Ever since i started running and heard about this event it has been the one i wanted to do. Having had a pretty miserable day in Stratford i'm really hoping to do myself justice on the day.....

Look forward to seeing you guys there!! I even managed to convince my sister to sign up last week before the shut out. So it's going to be a family affair!!
