Very good of you to read back, ES. Sorry to hear of your woes and fingers crossed your careful recovery can continue to plan. Better to hit 30 miles consistently for a few more weeks than to overdo things. I will see you in Chicago - I have also stumped up my $210.
blimey Jools & ES off to the Windy City. We're out of sync on the majors. I'm in NY in November for no 5 and targeting Chicago in 2017 to complete the set. I was looking at the WMM wall in London EXPO yesterday imagining my name up there. Spotted a few names I recognised including me mate Steve who ran them all sub3.
The cost for international entrants in the States is very high ... 30 or 40 bucks more on Boston and Chicago, but New York is the ultimate Skankity Skank at about 100 dollars more. I understand extra postage costs but NY takes the wee wee.
just had a little 5 miler, squeezed the pace at the end and nearly got up-ended by a road sweeper person who decided to veer in front of me very suddenly.
