(Jugula) so sorry to hear about your experience. Really hope you recover well. Sure others on here can advise.
Iain congratulations on your 10k.
Shades sorry you missed your marathon. Sounded like a sensible decision.

((Big G)) Thankyou for keeping us updated. A tough day but glad the cow made you smile. Sorry to hear about the probate problems. Hassle you could do without.
Hope your back is better soon.
Good luck Shades and Iain and SK and any others racing tomorrow.

I dream of girly running shoes......I have size 10.5 feet so have to buy size 11 men's....Up and Running are lovely and don't bat an eye lid at me asking for men's trainers but I wish I didn't have to! I am trying to find girls ones for my daughter (also size 11) as understandably age 15 she doesn't want men's shoes. We have found some New Balance ones on Long Tall Sally site but they are not well reviewed. Think direct to NB best way but that will cost ??95! But it would be good all round if trainers were available in more subtle colours!
Very tired after run, hilly forest walk and gardening. Now going to make some flapjack...

Big G, will be thinking of you today. Planting a tree for Claire and Jay, beautiful and a place you can always visit.
All the very best Jugula, you sound well prepared.
SK hope your 10 miles goes ok.
Managed 6 miles yesterday, long way back from the garage, and chest felt fine. Day off today so plan a quick half hour run before meeting friends for a walk.
Good luck to those racing this weekend.

Big G sorry to hear about your experience with Cruse but glad you can talk to your GP and someone at the hospital. Good you are getting out running and seeing friends.
Thankyou everyone for your advice and good wishes. My chest seems better. I am dropping my car off at a garage tomorrow and will start running home. If the chest hurts I will walk instead

Still feel discomfort in my chest after my cold when I run. I know the sensible thing would be not to run till I feel better.....
Big G so glad your GP was so sympathetic, kind and supportive when you visited.
MF will hopefully enter York again sometime but struggle with summer training for a marathon. I prefer spring ones. Will definitely volunteer to marshal again next year
Emmy congratulations on your double. Sounded tough but you did it.
Kk and SD well done on your races.

SK yes I ran York last year. My favourite of my 4. Well organised, great support and interesting route and not far from home
Well done Mowser on what sounds like a challenging race.

MF hope you are ok after your fall. I have fallen many times so am quite paranoid about it now.
Moore congratulations on a tough race.
Big G always write what you feel. We are here for you x
We had a good Park Run yesterday. Both a bit delicate so ran gently, not looking at Garmin. Just speeded up near the end and finished only 1 min slower than pb. Fountains Abbey was beautiful in the early morning mist and sunshine.
Today I marshalled at York marathon. I had the best time and loved it. It was so foggy that visibility was only a few metres. I was part of a great team but standing on my own so free to cheer, say crazy things etc with no one else hearing. My hands were sore but enjoyed every minute. It was an honour to be a part of a wonderful event and I was touched by so many runners thanking me. It was good to give something back for all the many marshals who have helped me over the years. I was standing at 7 miles. Some were finding it very tough. They may still be running now....

((Big G)) you have been through so much. I am so sorry. I wonder if you have an understanding GP who you can talk to. As MF says perhaps seeing friends will help. I don't feel I have the right words but I think of you and pray for you often x
