Hope everyone keeping fit and healthy and not eating too much at this yummy time of the year That's why we all run isn't it??

Have been trawling around to try and get some flights booked and have gone with air france. This goes via Paris but comes out at around a quite reasonable £500. Thought i would mention it since BA and South African Airlines are around the £900 mark at the moment.

Jacquie - good healing thoughts from me as well. Keep a positive outlook and i am sure you will be ready to toe the start line in May.

Welcome WW. Always good to hear of new recruits to the race

Garth - I am sure now that you can run again and get some consistent training, your running memory in your muscles will return soon enough.

Stephen - cracking run at Valencia and always great to get a new PB.

I have just got back from Valencia as well. Totally agree with Stephen, great course, great organisation and at the end it was like walking through the fruit section at a supermarket!! Goody bag was ace with lots of food!! I had a fantastic race and definitely my best marathon by far. I got my fueling spot on and my pace judgement was pretty good. Went through half way in about 1.40 (ish) but came back feeling really strong to post 3.18.11. So new PB at long last by about 5 and a half minutes. First time i have ever posted a negative split on a race as well. Was obviously very very happy and now can i join the Pen B gang for Comrades please?!!!

I shall be experiencing the buses back for the first time this year as well. So where do you buy the bus tickets? Are they at the expo somewhere? And have just booked into the city lodge so shall be there along with a few others on here i think.

I am aiming for a qualifying time at Valencia in a weeks time. Do i dare think about joining Pen B for the first time?

Interesting idea about running back to back marathons near to end of April. Do people think thats its helpfull and beneficial?

Nice running Poacher, at least you managed to better those 3 seconds and get your sub 3.20. Nice.

Well, back from Chiacgo. One of the best races i have ever run for atmosphere, weather and friendlyness and people. Simply stunning. Had great time and at least worst case i can now run the race next may. Finished in 4.04.12. Dont think Beachy will be quicker but hopefully Valencia will be!!

And cheers for the links Booktrunk.
