  • Jane Fonda lol, perhaps the volunteers won't be forthcoming then.

    As said, my calculation was based on exactly 5 miles.  You ran a bit further, and no doubt included it in your calculation, so well under 2 hours is possible.

    Keep up the good work.

  • The list grows but some in-filling/editing required. Fancy dress can be a hoot, but make sure it's well ventilated and you are well hydrated(Voice of v.strange experience.)DB9 1.27

    why never again, is it that bad?

  • Wow - did my longest training run in over 3 months of 12.12 miles yesterday, 'twas a bit of a struggle but feel a bit more comfortable about a Half now.

    Don - I put you down for a stretch tergat....! Neat little pacing group for the 1.27 should get us round in good time.

    On the bench this weekend - precautionary move, big picture etc as my goal 1.23 is not until November!

  • Had a relatively controlled and relaxed run at the Notts half this morning coming in at 1:29, so still expect to hit my target in Cardiff. Just need a few good weeks between then and now.
  • h0vis.  I ran FLM in the CwL charity costume Little Miss Naughty (big purple thing) and it ended up weighing a ton.  Though I did wear it to do Reading Half which was fun(ish)  It depends on what costume you wear I guess.  But if you are thinking of a Mr Man costume it is easier to say no!!!  lol
  • banana man

     i did a 2½ mile funrun in it yesterday, and rilised that the shirt with all the padding is too much, i was boiling. the rest of it seemed fine, apart from the mask kept slipping down and covering my eyes

    i think with a bit of modding i should be ok

  • Did Peasemore 5 miler run in 50 minutes yesterday

     I am shocked and deeply ashamed, My knee is killing me

    Not looking forward to cardiff now

  • I signed up for this event a while ago, but have only locate the forum....I don't really work in IT.

  • Emailed the race organiser/Barnados again yesterday about pacing as hadn't got any reply.

    Obviously they don't want me image

  • Can't say I blame them Daz
  • Harsh.Very harsh. Looks like dinners going to be in the dog then! 
  • Good Gawd, do I agree with Rio??? image

    Will just play it by ear and run my own race methinks.

  • Sideshowbob 2.05 or less if I'm lucky

     Just done Lake Vyrnwy in 2.05 so really hoping for under 2 but don't want to jinx myself

  • Some new additions I see! Did Lake v with OS at the weekend and despite a lousy run as he was carrying an injury, he got aa category first. Don't think I'll ever hear the last of it!! Contacted by the organisers today so looks like they've got the pacing sorted out. It's an Asics sponsored event. There'll be an early briefing on the day at 8.20 so I'm going t have to get up early for that one. Hope all going well guys

  • All going well, getting ready for the trip up North for a certain event.


    I just hope the dreaded Sue Barker doesn't use that horrible term "Fun runners" when talking about anyone who isn't in the first 3! image  

  • Eh oop chuck, 'av fun wi northern folk and get back safe lad!

  • Good God Spike, don't you ever learn.  Have a good one.

    A chap in work is doing it, he just told me he's not booked any accommodation yet pmsl image

  • Oooh err....that would be bad, even if doing Cardiff let alone GNR!!!
  • Thanks folks!

    Looks like someone will be dossing down on Town Moor this weekend! Handy for the start mind!

  • Lol - he accepts he's going to have to pay top dollar for somewhere to sleep after driving up on Saturday. image
  • Daz

    There are still places at the Innkeeprs lodge at Gosforth.It's about 15 minuutes drive from there to the start,though there is better chance with a taxi on Sunday morning.
    Newcastle Uni may still have rooms in Student Halls which they rent out every year as well.Unfortunately I haven't any contact numbers for them.

    Hope it helps!

  • Well I'll be brave and put my time down - no laughing please.

    Never can get rid of that space.
