Plusnet Yorkshire Marathon 2014

I ran this last year. The hills are mainly up and over the bridges above the big roads. Rrabbit describes the course well. Green Dykes Lane is not too bad. Great support, knowing you are near the end and the downhill sweep to the finish is lovely good luck everyone.

Big G, thankyou for your update. The photo album will certainly be something beautiful to treasure.
As you say it will be good if the coroner takes the difficult decisions out of your hands.
It sounds as if you have a wonderful family around you. I hope they can carry some of your heavy load.
As Emmy says your virtual friends are here for you if we can help in any way. I said a big prayer for you and Claire and Jay at church this morning.

Big G, I am so very very sorry for your loss. You have written the most beautiful piece about Claire. Please do keep posting. We are here for you (())
I know you like your park runs, we ran York for the first time today round the race course. A fast route but the best bit for me was finishing with a lady doing her first run.
Like MF you are constantly in my thoughts and I will say a prayer for you every time I run.

Big G, like the others you and Mrs G are constantly in my thoughts. I hope Mrs G is recovering ok. I wonder if the hospital can advise you. I am sure whatever decision you make will be for the best. I am sorry I struggle to find the right words. Lots of prayers. Sure a run is a good idea. Xx

Shades lol at hubby packing! I went early in the day to visit uni with daughter. I left him list of things to remember......Sorry to hear about your trip. Hope you are feeling better.
Congratulations Emmy on your double
Mowser 10 in 10 you are amazing. Loved reading your report.
Big G hope you are ok and baby comes soon. I understand a little of how you feel. Our eldest was 2 weeks late and induced. Time really dragged but worth it in the end

Home again after manic weekend attending university open day and celebrating my hubbys 50th with his family including v sick dad. A visit of very mixed emotions. Hubby forgot to pack my run shoes but I did 2 good walks instead .
Have emailed my thoughts re GNR which always makes me feel better. Need to start planning my next races which will certainly be smaller events.
SK so sorry to hear about your old work colleague.
Congrats on your club challenge.
Jugula, S32 and others well done on your long runs. Always tough ones in marathon training. Someone once asked me if I ran twice a day when they had passed me in two different villages hours apart when I was doing a long run!

MF thankyou for your race report. You did brilliantly. I wonder if you will eat the sausage!
Exercise class last night and first run since Sunday this morning. Feeling good. No races booked. May do a local 10k in next few weeks, spring half marathon and then.....Windermere marathon.
Happy running this weekend

Big G that's great news. You seem so sensible in your approach to returning to running.
S32 well done with GNR and I can sympathise with your feelings and experience. Shocking to hear about the weeing men. Yuk and awful for those clearing up. I am glad I hung my quite decent sweatshirt on a railing to hopefully be picked up by a charity. I agree it did seem there were a lot of hills. Hope you recover well and find another half marathon to do in the future.
One more thing... my bib also tore at the holes that I originally thought was a good idea. I kept having to create new holes!
