Whoops - where has last week gone? Did Hare & Tortoise marathon last Sunday - quite local, near Sharnbrook in Beds. Organised to perfection by a great guy (member of 100 club and someone I've run with quite a few times) - low key, fine weather, lovely route - 5 laps on farm tracks and through the woods, great HQ with hot showers, drinks and snacks twice on each lap and loads of food at the end and lots of good company. Finished in 4:54 which was half an hour faster than last year, but did feel tired at the end. It's one to look out for if you like the smaller events and is advertised on Runners World events.
This past week and next week I've scheduled as rest weeks (just a small amount of easy running or run/walk) and I don't have another event until Dec 18th. Fortunate really as it's been so cold I didn't want to even go for a run mid-week . Might run tomorrow morning to watch my former club doing x-country - there again I might have a lazy morning!
mamafox- another great marathon from you. Well done .
Big G - very belated Happy Birthday
