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.

Time wise, I ran 4.12 In 2014, Hope to run somethng similar this time. No idea if I will or not, but to be frank. I don't care. Don't run this race for the time. I run it to run it.

Trirunning faster, are you still selling your place ? I know someone who Is looking for one.

After missing last year's Snod, I'm on course for this one. Am, for the first time, doing two marathons in a month, Eindhoven and then Snod. I'm very excited, really can't wait. ready for the Snod house, looking at staying from the Friday to the Sunday. 


Injury free and counting down.

Hi all, after missing last year's race through work, I'm lookimg forward to running this fantastic marathon again. 


Loved the race back in 2014, but it wasn't just the marathon, it was the whole experience. By far and away, the best race I've ever done. 


Cannot wait

Peter. It's probably down to people who enter in haste, say as a New Years Resolution  (for Snowdon) or getting caught up in the drama of watching London, but do not realise the dedication of training that is needs to run a marathon. The craze of celebrities 'running' a marathon doesn't help either.

Has anyone run Loch Ness before ? Possibly looking at daunting (for me) prospect of both within a month of each other.
