Berlin Marathon 2015

Yep, in too. Pretty chuffed, but  my LBAC mucker didn't get in, so not quite as happy as I should be, especially as he did 2.50 last year too.

Should be a good gang going over too..need to get training if I'm going to beat Phil pub (fat chance of that )

Yes Ric - Sometimes those races you rush to get to - and hence are not so nervous about - can be some of the best ones!

Matt - Good run at Leeds. I was considering Telford, but might enter Eastleigh or Chichester - still not really local as such though. we'll see.

It's in the Berlin Marathon email confirmation time now - getting nervous, they email from the 20-25th November. This will be my second and last mara if I get in..

Yeah just realised its the day before it all kicks off. Gonna be tense

Why are so few races on Saturdays ?

Posted: 19/11/2014 at 08:43

Cross countries are great as they on saturday pm. You can have a shower, beer and LSR the day after. Understand the Sunday thing, but just feel more 'sporty' on a saturday

Glad the Wolverton 5, next week is still a saturday.

Bring Back races

Cranfield 5k at Cranfield Uni, Beds. Suprisingly fast course even though there is one quite long hill between 3-4k.

Friday night, BBQ, student bar after. Perfect....Until they got arsey and stopped it, the dullards..

Great running all - boy it's frustrating looking at results for races you are itching to do, but can't really get to. Also as I would be hoping to beat my 32.38 PB so we could have had a great tear up - hey ho! Really good reports - love the descriptions of how it feels during the race..usually bloody 'orrible

Jonas - were you the Tunbridge guy I ran into at the Highgate 10000m? (as I couldn't see because of the rain!!)

Myself - did the MK Parkrun in 16.21 which I was quite happy with as it's a bit of a bugger with its switchback hill that should be sub 16 on a flatter course.. (people reckon..). Decent 15 miler sunday am too.

Down to Bmth at the weeknd, so have the Poole Runners winter series 5k friday night on the prom at Boscombe. Sadly they are going to move it as Parkrun is taking over!

I fancied doing Telford but just too far from me really. Went on the site and it looks a good'un. Think it's the day after the Southern old boys xc anyway.

Shame as I really want to do a fast 10k, but Leeds and Telford have gone now. Doing Wolverton 5 on 29/11 which is fastish, but can be a bit blowy..

Colds - cold showers are good, as it heats the body up as you warm up. I only do that when forced to, when the bolier packs up at work!

I reckon Frazzles would make an excellent crispy bacon burger.

Love Bacon crisps, but why when you get past 30 do they stay with you all day? Can't eat them anymore.
Hate this nanny stateism. As a healthy runner, there's nothing better than eating very unhealthy food, because you can/have earnt it...and feel damn smug about it too..
