Hi F2D, 'a wonky bum', I won't ask any more but glad it's all ok now and you're back up and running.
Please do come and join us... I'll be the one taking your money Sunday morning, along with Pipes (also on this thread). Its my first all female race too and I'm really looking forward to it. A chance for us ladies to run while the guys do the hard work marshalling and cheering us on.
See you Sunday,
Yes there are places, be great to see you there.
more the merrier.
The ladies have the easy job its us men that have a tough task keeping all the ladies under controll but beware of helen she devising a cunning plan with the lead car!!!!!!
as if I would do something like that
a rope between you and the lead car is cheating
I hva also managed to secure two sports masseures who are offering free pre and post race massage
I was planning on sitting in the boot for a while!!
woo hoo, book me in for a massage then (mind you, if I 'hitch a lift' then i probably won't need one!)
Only trouble is the boot on the car is not that big
I think ftr was trying to be funny..... I can't hear any laughter though!
Come on ladies, only 3 days to go.....
This race sounds so good I'm hoping to EOD too, providing I can persuade the other half to drive me the 50-odd miles to get there, with the knowledge that (as a very speedy male runner) he'll be unable to take part himself!
I may even have a chance of being able to sight the lead car for a couple of kms, something which has eluded me in any previous 10km race
Your OH is more than welcome to support everyone and there are always some very tasty cakes at this event so he wouldn't go hungry
there is a rumour that the lead car may be slowed down by some extra weight in the boot
you trying to say I'm heavy????
Be great to have you join us on Sunday Susie (plenty of time yet for some arm twisting of your OH)
Footman we have now changed the lead car to a van due to the boot space being to small (not that i'm saying some one may be to heavy for a car)
FTR, footman, you only need the van because you guys won't be able to walk after all the cakes you'll have eaten!
Bridget, not if I'm already in there you won't! like the rope and skateboard idea though....
All other ladies, we do like running this course really
We are a fun loving running club who like eating cakes with the occasional run in between.
New spot prize arrived washing up liquid and marigold gloves !!!!
this year the winners will get the usual little trophies and all the prizes will be as spot prizes
so the spot prize list so far is
yankz race lace X12
sugoi shorts X4
£20 voucher for local butcher X1
£10 M&S vouchers X2
£25 voucher from Rejueve clinic towards any treatment massage/ manicure etc X1
£40 meal voucher for that good pub round the corner ask FTR for details X1
foot file kits X3
assorted socks X given up counting
shoe cleaning gel X5
so don't just leave when you finish you never know what you could win
about 1 in 7 or so if everyone stays behind, assuming some won't probably about 1 in 5
not quite sure how to dole them out, at the finish?, based on times? or positions? to people who are nice to me on the day? best customers? mmm
oh and everyone who finishes gets their pack with foot cream T shirt and all the usual literature
we also have Lucozade sport turning up with their van to give away a few goodies
anything else we can entice you with, to run with us on Sunday? Apart from a fantastic course in beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, very, very friendly and encouraging marshals, CAKES(), all those lovely prizes.......
See told you all Helen is trying to cheat .
she is trying to find out the position she has to finish to get the best prize.
All the spot prizes are going to me and footman now i think that is fare.
I was actually looking out for us ladies, knowing what you two are like!!!
Never trust a man to organise anything....
