P&D spring marathon 2016

Posted: Today at 08:32

Tri - well done on the Fling, was following a friend's progress throughout the race, it was quite exciting. You sound in remarkably good shape compared to her, she says she feels like she's been hit by a bus.

AWC - well done on the finish, getting sun burn is crazy it's still snowing up here.

Ramjet - hope you feel better soon, running with a virus is horrible and as others have said the training won't go to waste.

BR - mental.

No running for me all week, or walking due to a non-marathon foot injury. I can weight bear again so will do some light jogging, eventually. I've been using this time to catch up on drinking, lying about the house and over eating.


Overdone it?

Thanks for welcoming me to the thread. Hello Marrows! Well done on a sub 4 when you hadn't even planned to finish. 

Tommy that picture is brilliant, what are you doing? The piss avoiding at the start was quite something, a runner I know vaguely was standing in the pen waiting for the gun and having a little piss, not sure how she managed it.

Lit you've got a whole new income stream!

Actually we weren't robbed as a team I just added it up wrong, duh!

We were faster than Edinburgh AC too, so we've been robbed of our team prize!

Yes there's no consistency in the age groupings, someone at my club told me I should be targeting FV50 track stuff, it might've been a veiled insult though...

All the PBs apart from the 5K (not a Parkrun) were done when 43. It's usually just vet prizes I get but have been 1st Female 5 times, 1st park run lady finisher twice, can't remember team ones.

You should hear what I get called at prize giving ceremonies, I've started just cutting them short and walking up before they finish saying my first name...

Oh no sounds like I've caused chaos -- do I get anything for being very short?
