Shades/Mowser - I know Brenda very well! She's a really lovely girl and we've run together at a few events.

Shades - There are no services :/ Just a parking/picnic stop that i may have to use. I've been considering a she-wee.... for absolute emergencies!

Mamafox - what a lovely idea to have a cattery/kennels. I'm getting broody for another dog but will be good and wait 3 months until little one is here!

Big G - How are you getting on?

Hi all! Happy new Year to you all!

Mowser - well done on the flitchway -i heard it was a tough old course and very muddy!

Shades - are you affected by the floods at all? I'm still working until the end of february but we'll see what happens between now and then. It's a 45 min drive (best case) and i'm already struggling with needing a wee

Great news about the yogalates class. It sounds like a great class to go to!

Hi Shades, I hope that it doesnt get even busier when New Year arrives.

Little one is due end of March if everything goes well (crosses fingers). I'm nearly 28 weeks but i'm trying to keep a positive attitude and mindset.

Mamafox - Yes, indeed! It's been a rough day so far for Rogue as there have been a lot of firecrackers being set off

Great news regarding your run! I hope that the foot doesnt get worse. Have you been to see someone (sorry if this has already been answered).

Hope your little one is OK with the chicken pox

Shades - am mighty impressed that you're going to the gym so early! I guess that it'll be busy now until late January?

Mamafox - sounds like a good plan for your race calendar!

Another 90min fast walk for me this morning with the dogs. Quite nippy out there in the wind but happy to have done it and hopefully it'll wear the dogs out a little. Rogue is petrified of the bangs we've found out so i'm trying to get her as tired as possible for tonight.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Hey Mathschick - due at the end of March if everything goes to plan Let's see how I get on! It must be nice to have a bit of a break over christmas! When do you go back to work?

Muzza - I feel the same when i go out early mornings! You dont have a run hanging over your head!

Hey Mamafox - Yeah, I think you're right but I dont mind too much It's nice to get out there still!

It sounds like you have some great races down there. If you fancy something a little tough - would this be suitable for you? http://www.pven.org/

Hi all!

Happy Christmas/New year to you all!

Shades - some great bargains that you managed to snaggle there!

MF - Sorry to hear about your foot. I'm in similar foot woes

Mowser - A little late to the show but congrats on reaching #300!

I managed to get over to the race this morning, and wore the Teignbridge Trotters vest with pride whilst taking part in the annual Eindejaarsloop (Year End Race) in the town of Zwolle.

Organised by the local Athletics PEC1910 club, the event was made up of 3 race distances that all started at 11am; a 5K (1 loop of the very picturesque course), 10K (2 loops) and 15K (3 loops) race, with 125 competitors across the three distances.  Each race cost only €5 (£3.70), was chip timed with entry on the day, and the races started and finished at the club’s racetrack.  Included in the entry fee were a hot drink at the end and unlimited oliebollen, which is a traditional festive Dutch snack resembling a large, round doughnut covered in icing sugar.  The Trotters, and Shadies, would have loved it!

I opted for the 10K event and took it easy, finishing in a time of 50:47.  I had a thoroughly enjoyable run in what were cool and windy conditions….and then had a few oliebollen at the end to celebrate.  So although I wasn't able to properly "race" the event, I had a really good time participating.

Welcome to Dutch races! Cheap, well organised and some great food/drink afterwards!

MF - I really struggle with Dutch. I have been doing an online course and also bought a recommended CD package, but I'm struggling to grasp more than the basics at the moment  

Dutch isnt an easy language. I'm still getting to grips with some of the harder aspects of it although i can get by conversationally. Well done for trying! You're more than welcome over here anytime if you want to practice?

As I mentioned above - i've had issues with my feet for the past two weeks. A pain that rears its ugly head after 1-2 km and then doesnt stop until i stop. I've tried new shoes/new insoles but nothing helps Really struggling to get sorted so decided to rest it a week, then try a shortish run (5k) and then if it still hurts rest it more.... So i'm now walking a lot with the dogs and realising that i may not be running again until after Junior is here... so we'll see what happens.

Hope that you're all doing well!

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