Hi folks welcome to our new house.
Over the past 3 years we have probably naffed up the Edinburgh marathon forums for real runners. Subjects such as crap days at work, marriage, pregnancy, divorce, football, morris dancing New Zealanders, the Apprentice, Big Brother, naked ramblers, the sound of music, pop idol, illness, depression, shoes, shopping, drink, cakes, more drink, trains, bikes with stabilisers, more cakes, chocolate, easter eggs, more chocolate, pizzas, curries, chinease take aways, children (not available in takeaway outlets), holidays, more crap at work etc etc may have detracted slightly in hindsight from the event itself. As quite a few of us didn't run or in my case didn't get round who cares!!!!!!!!!
This thread is intended to be a network where Edinburgh marathon runners past and present can get together and basically hang out of an evening (or whilst sciving at work). Whilst reaching out to regular runners like smiffie, soph, amber, smout, Kiwi et al it also welcomes other newbees like Dippycat, Adie, Cavehill and Afresh who have joined us this year and we would miss if they didn't keep in touch. We also love to keep in touch with folk like Bungee and KarenD who have done Edinburgh in the past and moved onto other marathons elsewhere in the world or bigger, smaller, better, more personal or in the case of Mrs D weirdly different challenges that seem rediculously long and unentertaining to the rest of us. Oh and bedhspaped too who some horrific illness and/or injury befalls her year after year to prevent her running!!!!!!
I've made some really good friends via this forum for the last 3 years and I'd hate to lose touch with you all (the feeling is probably not mutual ) although some may find me harder to get rid of than others
This thread is the runners world equivalent of cheers. Everybody knows your name and we are always glad you came!!!!!!! Come in, make yourself at home and I hope to see you all soon.
