Loch Ness is great scenery and where I got my PB so would be my pick. Have also run Milton Keynes, Edinburgh, Abingdon and Liverpool this side of the pond.

ABP Southampton Half Marathon 2016

Slowest half for me by a long way at 1:57.  I was supposed to run it last year but due to illness the organisers very kindly allowed me to defer.  Found it tough going but good support from the crowds and just glad to be back racing again.

Hope you enjoyed the run @hillstrider.  Supposed to have run it last year but due to illness they very kindly deferred my entry to this year which was really good of the organisers.  First half for over 15 months so found it tough going but glad to be back.

Thanks for the heads up Scott.  Headed towards West Quay and found no problems finding an NCP in the end.  

Southampton Half - Parking?

I'm running Southampton half tomorrow and intending to drive down early.  The Car Parking link on the website falls over and the App is not particularly clear on how easy and close to the start I'll be able to get.  Can't even find a satnav postcode or address to head for.  Anyone do it last year and have any info they can share?

I'm pretty sure the council had a lot to do with the old Newark half stopping a few years back.

Heard absolutely nothing although if you want to discuss bringing back an old race you can't get enough of RW staff

Morecambe Bay - Cross Bay Challenge 2015

Good to hear the event organisers are listening to the feedback from this years event and are looking to change it back.

I ran it back in 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Recovery after pneumonia

Posted: 16/01/2015 at 15:36

Well I'm early 40's but I was diagnosed with a chest infection in December which unfortunately turned into bilateral pneumonia leaving me hospitalised for 10 days over New Year.  I've been off work now for 2 weeks and have just been signed off for another week as still not great.  They told me it could take 6 months before your lungs fully recover. 

I've suffered a lot from chest infections over the last few years so a bit prematurely perhaps I promised the wife and family that I'm going to stop running for the year to see if my health improves.  I'm hoping at my follow up appointment next month the doctor might have some ideas on how I can prevent the chest infections and help me change their minds so I can go back to running 

That said the events I am registered for from Feb - Apr I'm already looking to defer or get refunds where I can as I'm not walking that far at the moment so jogging isn't going to be anytime soon.

Good luck on yor recovery.
