Wearing race T Shirts...

Posted: 04/07/2015 at 17:07
Yup. Been sat in pub for a couple of hours wearing an Eyam Half Marathon t-shirt. I wear them quite a lot , largely because I'm too tight / CBA spending money on clothes. They don't maketh the man, as someone once said.

Yeah, exactly the same Rich.

Sounds like you are going well Scott and Nader. Well done.

I think I could do with finding a half to nail some decent pacing over the next month or two.

Oops. I drove to work this morning with the CD on pretty loud. Is that ok? Mind you, it put me in a much better mood.

Nottm medals are good. Think you have to pay extra for t-shirt, or at least I did first time I did it.

I wonder how many musicphobes use gamins or similar. I've seen several 'dangerous' incidents with GPS lovers. Some struggle to even do training plods without being hooked up to a satellite.

Also some folk just don't really get the importance of music.

Is any of the new course open to traffic? There was a little bit of it 'dangerous' previously. To make the event completely safe, there really ought to be BMI checks at the start. And maybe shorten the distance. But obviously headphones are more of a risk.

How`s everyone`s training going?

I`m doing ok. Done a 17 and a 15 but both off-road so very slow. Need to maybe crank it up a bit soon and planning to bag a 20 soon.....

Lots of unhelpful and judgemental replies, I see.

I used to always run with music and also race too. I had music on the first time I did Nottm mara but didn`t last time (2013). Once or twice, I did races where they said strictly no music but I kept my IPod shuffle stashed away until I really needed it then removed it before the end. Usually it`s just nanny state / health & safety gone mad.

I intend to do the full at Nottm this year. I doubt I`ll be plugged in but I shan`t judge those that are! Good luck.
