Great stuff Jimbob. You eyeing a sub-3 marathon?

Ha ha - early days to be thinking of such o thing! lets just say i want to train well and run well at some really cool big city marathons over the next few years with all you lovely peeps! The training for sub3 maras, as Sean, TD, OO et al will tell you, is a another step up in the level of traiining and having spoken to many sub3ers - i'm not sure if i want to commit to it. Also, too much pressure! i already had years of that trying to run sub2 at the half! My mileage and target pace is not at the sub3 level and i'm not planning to increase it any time soon (but who knows what the future holds)

Long time no visit. Hope all are well. Great meeting you some of you in Paris. Just completed the Brooklyn Half Marathon in 1.34.46. A new PB so am very happy and needed to share!

Progress Alexander and now you will be homing in on the Holy Grail - Sub1.30 ....!

RR - wicked race report girl. Sounds friggin awesome.

I'm out in the morning for a 10K race that came up last minute so wasn't part of my training plans. Ive had a bit of a cutback week this week so will run a few slow miles to the race and then try to run reasonably well. It's very hill so won't be going all out.

Orbs, DV my mum had a lot of platelet transfusions when she was very ill first with PBC/Liver transplant and then AML (during the chemo). Nasty stuff but those donations helped keep her with me for a bit longer so i thank you both for doing your bit.

I love the advice Weedy gave me yesterday when I complained of tired legs. He said "you need to channel your inner Emmy" , ha ha!

Carl, my race pack arrived yesterday also - we'll chat soon to arrange to meet up for that. Hopefully it will be mild and dry that day. Nic E from the thread is also running but i've not heard from her. Nic if you're out there get in touch!
