Morning all

Wendy - welcome! It's good that you're making a start with good time

RunClaire - don't feel disheartened. I ran 5.40 in Bewl when I did it! Now i'm running over an hour faster!

Oh look! A shiny new thread!

Welcome everyone! For anyone that's reading this I recommend on joining in the discussion and participating in the thread. It's been a really long standing thread and you can get a lot of information about not just the race but Paris itself.

Things you want to say but can't

Millsy - I'd agree with Seren that trail shoes are a mandatory here especially if there's rain.

Who else gets up at stupid O clock to run ??

Hi all,

I've decided that going out at NOC (7.30) just isn't worth the hassle of every man and his dog walking around off lead

Gobi - Me too... I just cant seem to get the hang of it.

Valis - that's great news RE: Injury

List Fairy, I'm doing Summer Ranscombe on 12th July. Thank you!

I'll look forward to seeing you there!

orapidrun - I've not signed up for Amsterdam. If do go over it won't be to run the marathon. I feel like I could do with the summer off the longer stuff. Plus I have a sprint triathlon to do, so will need to get my ass down to the pool and blow the dust off the bike.

I'm tempted to go to Amsterdam because so many friends are running it this year, but if I do it'll be as a supporter or to run the half. Also I've had thoughts of using it as a starting point to jump on a train and spend a few day holidaying in Europe.

You're welcome to use my place to jump in/from/out of if you need somewhere as a base

Thank you for all of your kind words regarding my 100th! Cant quite believe that I've done it but really happy that I've managed to achieve something that I've been striving for, for a couple of years!

A lovely little run this morning. I'm fully getting into spring as the dogs are chasing every baby rabbit and bird around

Valis - good to see you back

Gobi - you love it really ;0)

Shades Marathon Training

Shades - You're correct. GFA and possibly Boston (3.40) but we'll see what the marathon gods and training decide.

Slowkoala - I don't really have 200 in sight but mini goals (speed, possibly going longer, possibly looking at every country etc). I'm not even sure how I managed the 10k if i'm honest. I've got a slight groan strain from it so am taking it a little easier. I know that recovery runs suck but they really do make you feel better!

Nells - That looks heavenly! I'll not share a pic of what my office looks like today with 3 goody bags and cakes everywhere!

We all love an alive and springy BM

I thought that i'd offer this on here as well. On Facebook - people have been asking questions about my journey to 100 marathons. If you have any questions (best race/worst race/progression of times/what I've learnt) please feel free to ask them. I'm going to use some of them in a work magazine piece that I have to write so any input is welcome

Fantastic shot! Looks like a great place to run. I think poor Becky looks a little done in - how big was that hill?!
