Sorry B&T I've only just seen your message and your right ,I was busy ...Hope cricklade was ok at least it was dry and sunny,unlike today as I've opened the curtains ...

Pleased to announce I'm a grandma ,I have a grandson, he made a an entrance into the world at 9:30am yesterday, weighing 7lb 13oz ....birth plan didn't go according to plan, as my daughter and baby were taken for an emergency caesaraian for him to be delivered, one min I was watching my daughter in pain of labour, she had to be induced, her waters then broke but her body wasn't dilating quick enough so they put her on a drip, which increased the contractions and severity, she then had an epidural which in hindsight of what happened next was a good move!! The epidural kicked in and she could relax a little and cope without gas and air, but her cervix still wasn't dilating, and baby was getting mighty distressed on each contraction, so we go from 2 midwives to 7 people in the room including the anaesthesia man and I stayed calm as did Mel although later she said inside she was shitting a brick !! So epidural was topped up so she was able to stay awake and her partner was with her , baby was delivered his cord was around his neck and body which is why he was getting distressed as well as the gates not opening properly as it were , Mel lost quite a bit of blood and her blood pressure dropped lots apparently I heard later , but they both made it he is lush, Mel is very sore bless her and it's not the start to being a mother she had in mind but she is coping well and feeding baby herself at the moment

Robert, I ran London last year, and I thought it was pretty crowded then trying to weave my way past everyone,let alone with a buggy , I'll do some of the shorter training runs around where I live with the buggy , my daughter wants to lose weight for her wedding anyway so I'll get her to come with me ......she will be ok with it, after all she knows this is what her mum does, without winter training I'm a lost soul 

Toby is snowmaiden gonna do both next year then like I did ?? 

Sorry you were unsuccessful again, keep trying ....

Robert I found it does not make any difference,donating or not donating,I've got two jackets , and this is the first time I've got a your in mag this is my 7th attempt , I ran for charity last year as London was on my marathon list of one's to do, but found the charity fundraising over took my training, so I vowed never again unless I got my own place, only thing is I thought I'd never get in as I'm in the most popular category, so like I say have to grovel to my daughter cos I said I wouldn't run a marathon in the spring with all the training ...ho hum ....I think it's in my blood I just have to run for miles on a frosty Saturday morning  it will make me a better grand ma !!!

I got in !!! Came home today to find a "your in " magazine on my mat, I did scream with delight and deafened every one,then realised I'd now have to tell my eldest daughter (who still hasn't given birth to my grandchild,10 days late, induction tomorrow!! )That I'll be winter training,when I said I'd give it a miss due to aforementioned grand child ...

I ran London last year after getting a Parkinson's charity place and having to raise £1900 which I said I'd never do again,raising that amount of money is harder than training and running 2 marathons in a week which is what I did ...

So I guess I'm running brighton 10km then I think it's two weeks later, I'll run the London marathon

Toby 26:2 is only a marathon,you've run enough of those to know that !!! I was thinking an ultra where you don't have to use map reading skills to , or even a nice two day one where you just rough it over night in a tent !!!
