    Seems I'm in too!
  • Capt WP ...  jump in to any of the beginners threads on Tri!

    3 maras for me this year,  Beachy, Hastings and the cool down at IM Nice  image
  • I'm on it now... well after the send  image

    this year is looking well busy... 3 Ultras (got a realy nice 100 k coming up) and about 7 Marathons..! 

  • yay, cinders!!!!

    now i'm really excited, and it's only april image

    yikes, meldy - ironman! have you done one before?

    already been for my cycle today image

    for all those that don't know me that's very early for me! 

  • All these  wooohoooo and wehhays.  It sounds like the noise from any American Show!!!!

    (still got to love the excitement.)   I'm trying to sort out a way of running in Black and White! 

  • don't you just run in your pants?image
  • Be nice too....  But the Police apparantly don;t like that...  Don;t understand WHYimage

    I've entered too - Beachy will be my first marathon and then this. It is a bit rash because beachy may put me off for life, but it is so close to home and a one-off so a shame to miss it.image
  • Redhead - Petal's not in for this one - she hates straight road marathons but is fine when it's part of an Ironman or an off-road challenge. after she's done IM France and Beachy Head she's giving up on anything more than a 1/2 marathon as frankly she hates long distance running!! it bores her
  • thats usually because she has you for company   image
  • probably not far wrong there Mouldy
  • Just been speaking to someone, they reckon it could be full, I sent my entry in by post, getting a bit concerned!! anyone know how many entries so far??

  • B,
    Beachy is a top marathon. my favourite of all time.
  • sorry, don't know ian. someone who does may be along soon image

    the police are no fun, are they, captain?

    beachy is on my 2009 list, have heard it's fantastic. can't believe i have a marathon list when i haven't done my first yet! come april 27th i'll probably be sobbing 'never again'! 

  • I suspect if they have postal entries they would have reserved some spaces for that?

    It will be my 4th year at Beachy ..
  • I think it's my 6th beachy... I just can;t get under 5 hours on this...  I ALWAYS have issues leading up to this event.    It's my NEMISIS!
  • i've heard it's tough.

    what's your mara pb? 

  • OK, thanks runner duck, will keep a look out.
  • 4:17  but still it;s not hat I don;t like the hills.   just Hates me!
  • I did an online application yesterday and got in so fingers crossed for you that there are still spaces.
  • that is a big difference - no wonder beachy head has a reputation as a seriously tough marathon!

    i hadn't realised just how much hills take out of you until i did a flat half marathon a couple of months ago. i saw just how much fresher you stay without that surge in heart rate and quad overload! doesn't happen a lot where i live, especially when i'm with the running club who are masochists to a man. have to confess mara training on my own has taken me along the canal a lot image.

    well done on the 4:17, sort of time i daydream of getting! where did you get that?

  • cross post, richard!

    hello image

  • 4.17?  thats usually the time of day I finish
  • lol image

    that'll be me!

    You're not fretting already are you RD, 8 months of fretting is a long time....., theres nothing stopping you entering Beach Head this year you know image.

    Capt'n, cant  you wear your pants over your shorts in true wonderman style???????  Beachy in under 5 hours, I'm not sure I'm gonna get under 5 hours at stratford in a few weeks time ......., , I shall try my hardest though.

  • I not that normally caught up on times,  But I just want it! 

    My 4:17 was Luton, (probably just wanted to get away as soon as possible)

    And Pants over shorts... Intresting....   I should try that...  Or just on my head..!

  • yes there is, sl... sanity image

    nope, not fretting about hastings (yet!), just asking about beachy head for NEXT YEAR!!!!

    pants on the head - could be a forum look - that way we could all recognise each other at races -result! 

  • You want to do Beachy this Year....

    It is your Destiny!

    In one sentence you talk of sanity RD, in the next you talk of pants on head  image, are you schizophrenic?????

  • Beachy ROCKS
