I've never run this one before. It starts at the high school NOT THE ACCADEMY!!!!! The high school is right in the east end of the town just before you head out into the countryside. If you drive up the high street and keep following the bendy road round past the pedestrian precint and drive for anothe couple of miles you will find it no probs. The school is on the left when you see the thanks for driving safely signs. Entries are allowed on the day.
I've been doing some carb loading. I've had some Touretti Spaghetti for my tea. Its a bit like alphabetti spaghetti but you can only make rude words with it
Canny idea Can33.Hope I can pop in every now and again?

Karen our ultra queen, how many miles you doing 2mro then 500 or 501
I did a great 7 mile run today, felt good and at 9.42 pace good for me lol So this is it now for the next 16 weeks then its a week of doing nothing before the big day lol Oh I do hope I can keep the training going and not get fed up as usual!!!! I NEED that sub 4.30!!!!
Hiya Mick how did you get on last Sunday?
Smiffie I concur (thought I'd bring a bit of sophistication to the hoose) with Karen there is no way you are spectating next year you wouldn't cope lol Whereas I can cope quite nicely as long as my brother doesn't do another disappearing act to the first aid tent!!!! I am going to get settled in at the finish with my picnic hamper of goodies and my pom poms
KP glad you seem to be back on track after your time off, enjoy Arbroath, it does say entry on the day
Seeing Borat I am looking forward to seeing his new film Bruno, it looks absolutely shocking!!! He has got guts that guy with some of the stuff he does, the naked wrestling in the hotels in Borat was MAD!!!!!!
Tea on, corn fed chicken done in slo cooker with roast tatties and brocolli, hubby away out on another call in Edinburgh Pizza Hut lol so will eat when he gets home.
Got my great nieces 1 yr old birthday party at my sis's tomorrow afternoon so will take pics of her and my month old great nephew My sister will be in seventh heaven lol
Mile 23 is not bad going Mick!!! Have you got in built air conditioning? lol Or maybe you have Kenyan heritage without knowing it
He is used to handling extreme heat as a result of all that ironing he does!!!!!!
Mick Have you stopped laughing at the barcodes yet????
Oh yeah Mick with his ironing, forgot about that. Bums i've done all mines.
Have a fab time at party Bungee. Just a plod for me tomorrow, no idea mileage yet and just see how i go.
I'll be at the Milnathort dash guys, might not run it but i'll be there for the cakes.
Doh everybody love cake see ya there, I've a feeling our wee bedshaped will have a better race there than last year!! if she is running it that is! Are you? I'll need to see if I can beat last years time, got 2 and a bit weeks to get my speed up!
It's the Thursday after whw race Bungee, not sure if my feet will be ok.
It's the last thursday in the month Smout.
Thank you for the lovely welcome
Caniggia - I got lost on the way......
Karen I'll let you off for not running the Dash then!! your legs wouldn't thank you for that bloody hill at the start lol WHW is getting very near now!!!! it doesn't seem that long since last years!!! You'll do fab, the amount of training you have put in has been brilliant
We'll need to watch folks, our wee Smout will be raiding the fridge now she is eating for two!! The good news is she'll leave the alcohol for us
Hope smout likes gateaux then there is only beer, cake and some cider which I got in especially for the wee lass in the hammock
Definitely hoping for a better time this year at the Dash after the total crash and burn disaster that was last year! Should be on for a PB then eh?? Man that was my first race back after that horrible illness I had too and what a balls up I made of it! Luckily there was cake at the end to make it a bit better
Well done on your run Bungee and good pace too!!
Am I allowed to use WHW as an excuse too Karen Just kidding. Tell you what tho, I'll spectate at WHW and you can reciprocate at the Dash
Enjoy Arbroath and it's lovely hills Caniggia and KirrieP. Shame it's just a 10k, there are so many hill to take advantage of there
Now for the Bash. Not sure if I can make that one as it's a Wednesday and hubby sails then. Hoping tho that as he's doing the JogScotland 5k on the Tuesday and I have to miss training that I get to have the Wednesday instead. We'll see........
Just watching T2 with my eldest who is 11 and his pal from across the road who is 9. OMG some of the language is sooooo not suitable for them!! I'm thinking this is not a PG rated film??
