I've been ill this year, first of all with diabetes which resulted in cataracts so I went totally blind. Fortunately I have had both eyes operated on to remove the cataracts. The diabetes is now under control with twice daily injections of insulin, so I have re-started running. I've done 2 park runs recently and got my time down from 30:30 to 29:46. I think the second time would have been faster but we stopped to help an injured runner until a marshal arrived.

While I was ill Beans, a rescue Springer spaniel, joined us he is about 3 or so (actual age unknown) and completely bonkers. His best time for a parkrun is 26:20.

I'm getting on a bit, since I will be 11 next spring, but Bean and I, plus the two-legs are training to do the 20km route at the Stonehenge Stomp at the end of January.

Races with dogs

The downside of Canix races is that they are all over the country and usually only 5k. (the major exception being the 1/2 marathon on the Neolithic trail). They are usually fairly pricey too, and expect you to have all the 'right' gear, which naturally they sell.


The upside is they are well organised and have a good atmosphere.

Giants Head Marathon - June 2013

Hey GB, good to see your marathon is coming on. Thought about it yesterday as I was standing on the A37 marshalling the Wessex Ridgeway as usual. Its about time your club put a team in and tried to stop the Doddlers sweeping the board again.

I did it the same time as Kittencat. Effortwise I'd say it is as tough as the Grizzly. No bogs or stuff but more climb. I did dehydrate on the run, if I ever do it again I'll use a Camelback.

There are a couple of navigational issues, but keep the sea on your right and you will get there in the end.

Still at Seaton there are several excellent fish and chip shops and you can have a pint or two in the Hook and Parrot.

Sarsen Trail, Neolithic Marathon and Cycle Ride - Wilts

DC3. Oh yes there are hills!

Climb just after the start, then a big climb onto Sailsbury plain at about 10, then undulating to the finish.

Just start easy. The great thing is to be constantly passing walkers who are doing the same route.

I may do the Canix half marathon with my owner.

lardarse - How can you justify the human race when they kill each other? Your comment is complete dog shit!

I've got a Marlin (sort of Morgan shape but even more beautiful). Last two weeks have been brilliant. Its an 80 mile round trip to work, and by Jove you are awake when you arrive.

Had to laugh at a MX5, roof down =  good, but air freshener hanging from mirror!
