Morning Hipps, have a great weekend in Connemara, what pb's are you aiming for this weekend .
By the way this is an early morning for me.
Anyone know if the list has been updated yet with the RW online entries?????
Last long run this weekend before I start the taper for the Shakespere, I'm certainly looking froward to a bit of a rest as I'm permenantly knackered these days!
Have a good weekends running/racing everyone.
No SL they haven't updated yet - I entered on 31st March and am still not on the list so I expect there are lots of other RW entries to add. It's so easy to enter races isn't it - perhaps too easy ... I have now entered 2 marathons and have never run more than 14 miles todate Looking forward to my long runs being over the summer though ...
Yes B, its too easy to enter online, especially if you know your card details of by heart, you don't need to move and suddenly a few minutes afterwards you think EEEEEEKKKKKKKKKK, what have I done. However, if you're like me the very fact that you've already paid for it makes you do the training and finish the race!
I'd not thought about long runs in the summer, that'll be a novelty .
Nearly there cinders, only one bit of skirting and the door then I can start on the schedule. I've got to do one for myself to include the ultra-runs, I'll send it to you so you can have a laugh at my expense .
Mr Finknottle, how did it go. Did you need skis to get up the valley! Its still snowing here, were only a short way away from Arundel.
I didn't get out for my run, got up at 7.30 and felt exhausted and achey so went back to bed and woke up at midday. I've started sneezing and sniffing now so probalby getting a cold, hope it dosen't hang around.
just watching the gymnastics on tv, they make it look so effortless, oh to be so graceful........
Yep, that's about the size of it. I got to Crossbush and the sleet had just started. Then it snowed like hell after that. Managed to park at fhe car park and sought out a race marshall, who told me the event was cancelled. Really disappointed in view of this freak snow storm. Was so looking forward to it; however, I was given to understand that the top of Target Valley was a white sheen with visibility of only 15 yards. It would have been really unsafe.
However, when it's back to normal, I might just try the route, as far as I can either later this week or next week, to see how things go. It's the taking part of an event that has taken the shine off proceedings.
No chance of re-scheduling, so have opted for a refund. Race number torn up.
SL, have you changed your name?
Wow, all this snow. We've had our annual 2 flakes down here!
never mind mr F, theres always next year .
Yes Cinders, I've just changed the spelling, every other forum I'm go on its spelt like this so I thought it was easier. Its still the same old me though.
Has anyone noticed that the Hastings 100th Anniversary Marathon, held in 2004, has had a review? I think the only runner was Snoop Dogg. Oh well ...........................
Has anyone told Eric Hardwick yet?
lol, where's that review!
Ah glad its still you SL
Just go to the event page on RW, look up this event, AND THERE IT IS!!!
It might be a misplaced review for the Hilly Hastings Half!!
I'm sitill not on the list either. So....... I sent Enquiries@SportSystems.net an email asking how they populate their lists and would postal entries and those from runners world be included!
I'll keep you all informed.
We are sorry, but we’re only responsible for the online entries received through the custom-built store that we created for the event and all the postal entries. All the entries received so far via these routes are published on the current entry list at www.sportsystems.net/hastingsmarathon.
However, we’re still waiting for the organisers to send us any entries taken via Runners World which is outside of our control. Once we have this data we’ll process it and re-publish the entry list.
So just down to the organisers to get the list over!!!!
Not worried anymore, but it would be nice to see my name in print!
