Snowdonia Marathon 2017

Posted: 10/01/2017 at 00:54
Hi everyone. I've joined a new running club this year so,with a lot of core training and some proper specific speed sessions, I'm hoping for some improvements in my running times.

3rd time running this race and I love it. The house was great last year, looking forward to visiting the wonderful Y Pantri again and tasting all the delights there.

Please put me down for 'just' the single. I'm nuts but I'm not bonkers.

Won't  regret it. It's tough, but by far and away best marathon I've ran

Absolutely battered by Snowdonia Marathon finished in 4.38, over 25 minutes slower than last year.

At around 24 miles, on top of the last climb, I seriously cramped up and started to get very cold and shivering. Only option was to 'foose my legs' and push on.

Crossed the line in a lot of pain, got my slate finisher's coaster and immediately thought of signing up for next year.

One of the reasons I love this race so much is because it's brutal, because it's not easy, because the views are stunning, because the whole village come out, because the owner of Y Pantri, where we went to eat last night remembered me from 2 years ago and what my favourite food and coffee was.

Snowdonia Marathon isn't just a race, it's a village being shown at its very best. No matter how hard I'll find it, I'll always return the following year.

Probably something to do with why it sold out in 12 hours this year.

Put me down for 4.15 or there abouts. I'll definitively be around for beers after the race. may well pop into Y Pantri too as I think some mates from Run 4 All Neath maybe there too.

Well, tis less than a week till my 1st of two marathons in October raising money for the MS rehab centre in Swansea.

Eindhoven looks like perfect weather, around 16 degrees and sunny. Using it as a training run for Snowdonia so anything around 4 hours would be perfect. Would love to be PB hunting (3.46) but no where near there.

Training has gone ok, not too much speedwork, other than parkrun but got enough to get around I reckon and am looking forward to saying hello again in a couple of weeks.

I'll be the one in Holland poncing around in a Run 4 All Neath vest.
