The Watford 10k

Yes, nice to be back in the woods, though something may have to be done for the faster runners lapping people on their first loop.  I thought the new location at the bottom of Cassiobury park worked well, though it was initially hard to see where the front and back of the start was.  Overall though, really enjoyed it!

London Marathon 2015

On the TV coverage yesterday a woman who'd run it 18 times said something along the lines of "everyone should do the London marathon once . . . "

I'm wondering what the chances are if you pay upfront?  I'm not sure if I want to risk the £48. 

When four of us tried two years ago, the one who wasn't as interested in running got the ballot place - he did however at least run it.

Haven't met anyone else that uses it, but I use Sports Tracker:

Eton Dorney Sept 29th

Hi, I'm thinking of entering that as my first tri as well, although I'm coming from a slightly different angle as I've only just got a bike and haven't cycled for years.

I have swam in the lake at Eton Dorney before, and it's a good one to start in as nice and clear with not too much vegetation.

will never do this event again. Late starting. Not enough stewards, no starting groups so i was caught at the back. I then had to run the first 5 km in heavy congestion while other 'runners'(that's being generous) walked, stopped, took pictures of themselves( i kid you not this lead to a very frustrating run I have learnt my lesson and will stick to smaller runs. This run is ok for fun/charity/first timers but for anyone else will be excruciatingly frustrating

I did it last year, and this pretty much sums it up (apart from the cold weather).  The only other thing I would add was that as well as walkers in front, there were faster runners coming through behind us.  The route is nice and it's OK for a first run, but no more than this.

I like it, parks which can be very busy on summer evenings clear out when you get a bit of rain.  

Am I the slowest EVER?

Laine, your "more about me" page says it all - you've done immensely well, keep it up and enjoy it!

Stokenchurch "Run The Rock" Charity Fun Run

Hi, didn't run as we didn't know it was on (last minute camping weekend in Radnage), but spent some time at the finishing line.  Nice atmosphere, thinking of doing it next year.  Is it going to coincide with the village fete/festival again?
