Paris Marathon 2014

Martin - how are you travelling over? Having run TW are you in Kent? I did TW 1/2 last year in 1:42. A challenging course and a very good time by you!

I am Bib number 23432

Paris Marathon 2014

Posted: 12/03/2014 at 11:45

This will be my 4th Marathon. First was New York in 2007 when I was injured and got around in 5:42!

I did London last year in 3:52 as my calves went at mile 19 and was ready to push on for a 3:40.

I then did a marathon in 4:17 in August at Ironman UK.

I have been injured since then but did the Viking Marathon in January on just a few 5km training runs in 5:02.

I am just going to Paris to enjoy it and not race as I have not done the training. I am in Ironman Zurich so building up my run for that.

I am not female or single I am afraid but if you want to share and it is cheap… (lots of travel in the next 2 months so have to do it on a budget. I am even contemplating cycling there are back for a bit of training)

I have just got a charity place for the Paris Marathon and wondered if anyone was driving and could give me a lift in exchange for a contribution to fuel costs etc? I live 2 minutes from the M20 in Maidstone so en-route.

Also, is anyone looking to share a room? I have no accomodation booked and trying to do this on as much of a budget as I can!

Outlaw 2013

I have created a gallery of images from the Outlaw at www.triathlon-questions.com in the BLOG section. I was an official photographer covering the event in a editorial fashion for One Step Beyond.

There are a few Pirate images in there but I will create a Pirate only gallery if you guys share, like and comment on the gallery on Facebook and Twitter etc. I am a Pro but trying to make it as a Triathlon specific photographer so want to get my work out there!

It was really inspiring seeing everyone race on Sunday in those hot conditions. I am doing Bolton in less than 4 weeks now and the reality of it all hit home!

Well done to everyone for competing!

Just wanted to say thank you to Deal Tri for putting on a great 1/2 today. It was cold and windy and a very challenging day with the conditions and undulations but run very well.

A special mention must be made for the marshals who were out in abundance and very encouraging. They must have been very cold but kept their spirits high and kept us motivated.

Also I think I counted 5 water stations with the last having coke which was a great touch. It is the little things that count so thank you very much

I got a 8 min PB (have not raced a 1/2 in a while!) so very happy

The A20 Path 'n Downs Marathon and Half Marathon

Posted: 19/11/2012 at 10:57
I went for a 8 mile run Thursday lunchtime which is the furthest I have been in 2 years as I have been doing 5km and 10km's in Tris's. I went out on Thurs, Fri and Sat night and trained for 2 1/2 hours on Saturday (cycling and swimming). I was supposed to be racing in the KFL Cross Country in Deal but the 1 hour drive did not appeal, so instead I decided to do this A20 Path and Downs Half Marathon to see if I could get around this tough course. 
I ran at conversational pace and walked the 800m hill at a 12% gradient. I had my watch covered all the way so I just ran easy and not to a time. Somehow I managed a 1:55 which is a PB by 3 mins! This means I should be able to get around a flatter course in around 1:45 very soon (the hill cost me 3 mins) if I push on. Can't believe I got a PB - the training is clearly going well!   It was a lovely and very scenic route and well organised. Really looking forward to next years race now!!

I am by no means an experienced runner as I have only done 7 races or so from 10km to marathon. I like the medals though as it gives me pride. 6 or 7 years ago I was 16 1/2 stone and could not run 100m. Now I am under 12 stone and my PB for a 10km is 48 something and for a 1/2 sub 1:59. My medals are hung up and it gives me great pride to see them and it motivates me.

I think that bags full of goodies like fruit or a mars bar are all very nice but you can easily buy them yourselves for £1. You cannot easily buy a medal that states the race you have just run...LIke others have said it is a momento.

Why not increase the fee by £1 and offer both?

I may be being really thick but I cannot see the race results online anywhere? I am sure it said in a earlier post that they were online.

I really really enjoyed this race. Very good organisation indeed and a lovely route with some fun hills. A great day and race!

The only down side...No medal which was a real shame. For me personally, my view is that you can buy a bag anywhere but can only get a medal having completed an event. It would have been nice to add to my growing collection and a good memory.

Can't wait to do this race next year and thanks for the weather updates - really apprecited
