PSC and MF7
I have just found a new definition of nutter. I am organising a Conference in Harrogate this weekend and one of our major sponsors is Lloyds TSB. My contact there is a chap called Bernie. On one of his recent emails to me I read the following at the bottom of one of his emails,. Bernie is probably somewhere between myself and Mark in age. Read em and weep!
On Saturday 22nd March 2008 I will commence my journey from the UK's most northerly point John O'Groats ending 21 days later at the UK's most southerly point Lands End on Saturday 12th April 2008.
I will then travel to London and complete The London Marathon on Sunday 13th April 2008.
A total of 926.2 miles/35 Marathons in 22 days!
Please help me on my very special journey to change 50 young Barnardo's lives forever.
I will be aiming to raise £50,000 for Barnardo's please visit: www.justgiving.com/berniesjourney
Wow Bernie is deffo a nutter! Good luck to him.
On the plugging front I'm doing London for the Royal British Legion - Sarah suggested it and it seems appropriate with her starting at Sandhurst.

PSC - you and Bobo could do QS together in your wedding gear!!
thats assuming PSC can still fit into his suit
Which I hasten to add I cannot
People would pay good money to see that!
Only joking guys!
Mark - What are you doing trying to get into PSC's suit.
Yes, before you say it, I am really typing this at 01.25am as I have just got back from the bar and discovered that I havea free connection in this Hotel, once a Jock, always a Jock!
2008 - doh! Yes, I thought you were being pedantic then, and then realised my error
I can still get in my wedding suit - it has stretched since I got married .... seriously, this will be Jnr's first weekend free from school so we will pop up north to spend some time with him.
CB - yep, nuts would sum up that particularl jaunt!
Morning Thanet and Harrogate.
Due to work and other things, I still haven't run since Saturday. I must get out tonight!
Morning PSC I am impressed if you can still get into your wedding suit. If I remember correctly mine had a size 28" waist these day id be more likely to fit into a 38
Cliff see you at tonights speed session then ?
Bill if you are a real "jock" im suprised youve left the bar that early
Speed session, what's that?
I have two speeds, dead slow and dead. Besides Sam told me to keep training low and long, so I assumed she meant me to have a good sleep!!!
LOL Cliff its actually time to have a taper now I recon. Dont listen to sam she's a nutter and is trying to cram 12 weeks of training for the overnigter into 2 weeks. liquid carbs for me tonight I think
I must be going soft in my old age let them get away with just 4 x 1k last night on the excuse that most are running Dover on Sunday
Cinders we have gone back to meeting at ramsgate swimming pool 6.30 for the warm up run down.
oh and a chance to mock the big girls blouses who tart about in the pool pretending to do "swim training" whatever that is
Tsk, fingers in ears after swim "training" for 20 years and lifeguard "training" for 10 !!!
Obviously I'm rather slow right now so can I meet you down there or someone slow enough to plod down with me?
te he seems I have touched a nerve
right im off out now for a large intake of liquid carbs. Cliff told me its the perfect pre run preparation
MF Don't follow my advice in anything, I could lead you down all sorts of blind alleys, I mean that figuratively, not literally. Anyway I don't learn, I am now starting my 'carbo loading for the weekend as well. Enjoy and cheers to you all.
PSC - You know how to woow (how do you spell woow?) the women!!!
Well half plodding more like PSC !
Is the half on this year, have found details on RW for our mara in Sept but not the half?
PSC - I think you may be correct
Carbo loading has gone well, Fried rice certainly helps pile on the pounds. No time for a LSR today so it will have to wait til tomorrow, 8 miles only as I am tapering (for tapering read 'avoiding running)
What have you all got in mind for your LSR this weekend?
No LSR at weekend Cliff. I did Dover half which was fun and lovely weather. Some fellow TRRACites run very well and several are now proud owners of new pb's well done !!
Next saturday we are planning to take the train to Deal and run back to Ramsgate Approx 15M. I will confirm times etc but expect to be gettting the train around 9.30 ish. All welcome.
ohhh nearly forgot Andy Stevens did the Brands Hatch 10K on Saturday and was 4th !! great running Andy
I recon he must have a truly brilliant coach
Out of how many?
No, only kidding. remarkable running from a "Fan of Thanet". Great performance.....
