Fans of Thanet



  • That's fine Mark, I should arrive around 07.45 so I will wait outside the station. Can you email me a contact phone number just in case anything stupid happens like my train being cancelled.
  • Latest weather forecast is for highs in the low 40s and lows in the low 30s and snow showers in the morning, oh joy of joys. I have enough trouble staying on my feet in dry conditions.
  • Bill I will send you my mobile phone number.  Just thought I will need to pick you up at 7.50 so that we can meet the others at 8.00.image  Are you planning on making the session tonight?  Hill reps I think LOVELY

    Looks like the weather is gonna add to the fun although BBC weather website is saying only 20mph winds 4 deg and sunnyimage

    where have bo-bo and cliff face gone ??

  • I've been out running image and now I feel alive - cold, wet but definitely alive!

    Great fun on the top of the Downs watching the rain dancing and swirling in the wind, then as it (wind) drops to turn and gust the other way it dumps the water like a cold power shower. All those sad people in their cars - I always feel the farmers and myself are sharing a secret joke on days like today.

    My weather forecast promises cold but bright and no precipitation - jelly babies fortunately work in all weather. Is there somewhere on route we can buy extra water?

    Right off to play with operation stack - need to takes parents to WHH for post op check-up. 

  • Bo-bo  there is a village shop in St Nicholas at Wade which I guess is somewhere around the 18 m mark (ish)  I usually stop there and buy water or fruit juice and a snack image
  • Mark

    That's fine. I cannot make tonight as we have company annual dinner up in London, black tie job. Unfortunately I will go into saturday on the back of several days off training and next week gets even worse as I am up in Harrogate from Wednesday to Sunday, but after that everything clears up. I am also taking three days off the following week so I will pile the miles on then.

    Oooh sounds a posh do CB! 

    Sounded a windy one bo-bo!  Calmed down a bit now down here.

  • Two things:

    Who is going to start the Thanet Marathon thread? The race is in the events list now so I thought about it but I was too nervous!!!

    PSC is a sporting megastar who appears on page 14 of this months RW mag. Bobo can you bring along a signed photo for me?

  • Go on Cliff you know you want to but please set it up from the event page that way its linked to the event website and entry forms etc.

  • Oh the pressure! Go on cliffy you know you want to.

    My entry in RW is a bit of a fraud. Bobo is the jellybaby queen so should really get the credit! image

  • Oh no Ive just seen the BBC weather for tomorrow  5 deg 14 MPH westerly winds and Bright sunshine where is the fun in that image

    Must remember to pack some sunscreen in my belt bag

  • means i can glug some vino tonight - mark i think there is a message in there somewhere...i image
  • Mark

    Shall I bring a hip flask tomorrow then? Or maybe one of those foil bags out of a 3 litre wine box. You did say we would be stopping for refreshments.

  • After the night I am intending to have tonight, no wine will not be welcome tomorrow!!!!!!!!!image
  •  A couple of years ago we took a camelbac filled with white wine with us on the Beachy Head marathon  was great fun but did a PWimage
  • No wine will not be welcome tomorrow, work that one outimage
  • see you've started (drinking) early Cliff!
  • Cliff is that a double negative making it a positive and therefore a request for wineimage
  • Like the sound of the camelbak full of wine! image
  • afternoon Cinders - too much wine can lead to wrongly placed nappies, or in PSC's case a bottle of coffee feed! Stick to G&T image

  • Oh God I had forgotten that. Attention all young dads. 3 spoons of SMA Gold can not be got from the Nescafe jar! LOL.
  • LOL  hope your not making bo-bo's drinks for the morning PSC.

    See you in the morning folks !

    PS its bloomin Cold in Thanet tonight

  • PMSL........... nope, she's been up for a while and done all that herself!!  Good luck all - have a good run image
  • lol, like that story PSC image
  • Thanks for a brilliant morning folks image
  • Yep, a good time had by one and all. Not being a fully qualified nutter I wimped out and doubled back at Minnis Bay, via a bacon baguette and coffee at the cafe on the prom, and clocked up just under 17 by the time I got to Birchington Station, so I am quite happy with that.
  • 17 is still nuts CB.  OK so not barking mad, but you are definitely qualified in the "nuts" catagory..... image
