London marathon mags

Rejection mag for me. 6th year in a row that I've been rejected through ballot. Did it back in 2014 through club place though. Seen dozens of rejection magazines on facebook but not one acceptance one yet but just looking on here it's obvious that both have been sent out.

Find it odd they don't just tell all those that are to be rejected by e-mail now. Last year I only had the e-mail and they didn't send it out until the 3rd or 4th day of magazines being received.

JCP Swansea half marathon 2016

No issues at all driving in from Fabian Way. Parked just across the bridge from Sainsburys in a car park by the harbour which meant no issues with closed roads and easy exit out afterwards. Could easily have just turned up at 8.30am. Was more luck than judgement mind as I found the road closure / parking information on the website quite confusing. I know a lot of people parked at LC2 where the race village was but the website suggested the roads out of there were going to be closed until 2pm so didn't fancy being stuck there for 3 and a half hours after I'd finished.

No worries-  I managed to get one in the end and so glad I did because ended up with a PB! Funny how much your own performance affects the way you view an event. Hated it the first two years - best event ever now

Can you use the same qualifying time twice? A friend of mine got a GFA qualifying time back in April 2015 and therefore got to run London this year... can he use that April 2015 time again to enter London 2017 under GFA as well.

Manchester Marathon measure short 2013 - 2015

Nooo! Marathon PB and only sub 4 hour time is from there in 2015.

Odd how it took so long to be discovered especially as I believe the majority of runners clocked it 0.1 or 0.2 short in previous years. 

Very little about the confirmation on forums / news articles etc considering the statement was 3 days ago.

How was the BB race Mokshaeight? Quite fancy doing one of those next year - 10K, HM, M and Ultra options I believe?

Had a bit of a nightmare and first ever DNF. Had thigh / hamstring issue from the start but tried to ignore it and hoped it would ease. Went off a PB pace and seen Seren twice on the first out and back.

Passed T-Rex around 3-4 miles - I was going to say hello but you were in conversation with another runner and didn't want to interrupt. I started struggling more with the issue from around mile 7 and encouraged my club mates to press on. I think T-Rex overtook me around mile 9 just after the bridge and I was slowing so you probably seen me quite a bit behind on the way back. Ducked out after one lap and after explaining the issue they still let me collect a Half Marathon medal and goodie bag so thank goodness there was a half marathon option.

Went for massage afterwards which confirmed issues with hamstring / quads. Appointment booked with my usual sports massage therapist on Wednesday.

Enjoyed supporting everyone else and stayed until our last club runner was in just after the 4:30 mark.

T-Rex - really enjoyed the Ultra. A different experience for me having never gone beyond marathon and all of them being mostly road. Did recces of the course beforehand and mud ranged from what it was like on the day to bone dry. Lovely scenery and weather conditions were good after a drizzly start. I finished in 6:40 so we may have crossed paths at some point. I'm pretty sure I saw you in the early stages of Snowdonia Marathon - I'll make a note of your number and say hello this time.

Great Welsh was my first marathon back in 2011. Done a couple of halves on that course since plus a couple of the other Llanelli halves which use some of the course. Look forward to returning this weekend and to get a course best I need to beat 5:04:08 (PB is 3:50)
