Sunday name Can!!! Tut, kick in the ankles.... Anyway, you know it's my special shoes, not super specs!
You going for a blue rinse bedshaped?
Waves to everyone.
Had a sh1t run this eve, totally depressing with my carp lungs. So, I came home and cried! Och well, tomorrow is a new day.
Are carp lungs not called fins?????
Its not just your running thats a bit off tonight your smilies have gone to pot too. Its like reading one of Kiwi's posts
I edited and resubmitted to fix the smilies Can!
Unfortunately, I don't swim like a fish Can. It's more like doggy paddle at the moment.
BEDSHAPED Pom poms or not.You have to be part of the team.If you do the Edinburgh next year I shall make an effort to get to the meal and by you a pint.
It is a shame really that we couldn't enter a team with t-shirts and all.Anyone have any ideas for a name?????!!!!!!
Not only leave the pompoms bedshaped will have to leave her outfit from last year at home!!!!!
Morning all hows this for an offer, was in the pub last night with wifes mam and dad and we were talking about the marathon and if i wanted to do another etc, i said i really wanted to do Paris one year and that James (my son) wants me to do it as well, so Father-in-law said if i enter it, he will pay for the hotel!!!!!!!!
more later after work,
Smout describing bedshaped and Smiffie as "paint drips" seems a bit hard on them don't you think?
Soph - hope you feel better today. Those lungs of yours can't be that bad if you can cycle 70+ miles in a day. Caniggia I think you'll find carp lungs are called gills !
bungie - don't let Smiffie see that book - anything to do with cheese and she'll eat it. A book on nuts - now that would be safe.
Adie - I enjoyed Paris although it was very congested in the first 6-7 miles of the race. I'd like another crack at it next year perhaps if I don't get into VLM. If you do it getting as far forward as you possibly can at the start would be my advice and watch for debris underfoot. All sorts or crap was just thrown down in the start pens and first 1/2 mile of the course. Your Father-in-law has bot been to Paris recently I'm guessing. Was painfully expensive with current € / £ exchange rates. You'll also need a medical certificate to run in France which was a bit of a pain in the butt.
Hi all, well legs still work, took them off to the gym last night for a couple of miles on the dreadmill, am going to let them loose on the highways and byways of Harrogate tonight see how they fair. Having watched a programme about frostbite on Everest last night I have to say my toes look remarkably good compared to those on the telly - yikes no climbing up Everest for me!!
Smout hope all goes well this afternoon. Adie I quite fancy doing Paris, but, I love Paris so much that I fear I might miss the race and just spend the whole time mouching about drinking coffee in lots of nice cafes.
Oh that made me laugh, remembering Bedshaped jumping out at mile 12 last year really picked me up!
Off for run with friend first thing, then spts massage, then work. Swapped day off tomorrow for today....... well prob go in this afternoon.....
hope you feel better Soph, heres some (((boing)))
Caniggia33 you are sitting on the fence in this new house, so you might as well finish creosoting (can't spell) it while there
I watched that too Scharm, the toe thing made me barf!!
Morning, why does Kiwi keep shouting.
You ok today Soph?
Hi Jovi, no not a club member yet but thinking of joining Nidd Valley Road Runners as I live in Starbeck - which club do you belong to? Am scared of Harriers, they all seem so fast!!!!!!!
Am ok thanks Karen. Listening to radio in work. Gah is this my foreseeable work future, listening to radio???
DCB, I don't have Gill's lungs?
Smiffie, isn't creosote banned???? I used to love the smell of that stuff.
Heh I like that idea for doing Paris SCharm, cafe stops!! Adie, sounds like a good offer. I'd stay with my Uncle if I did it.... It's good having jet-set relatives.
Heartbreak make me a dancer, dancerKeep my heart beating faster, faster... Guess the lyrics?
DCB thanks for that, am well aware of the exchange rates from NewYear when we went skiing, they are better now from then though, need to check dates etc of it, do they base start on expected/previous times?
SCharm, Easingwold for me tonight, YorksRoadRaceLeague, nice run even with a big hill in it.
Thanks Jovi (aka Wendy) my husband works with Paul Stockburn from the Harriers, and Paul was my "virtual" trainer for Edinburgh (my name if Sarah Chalmers)! I'm actually quite shy which is why I haven't joined a club as yet, its the getting through the door bit that scares me! so your offer of asking for you is much appreciated, however, I don't have use of the car on a Tuesday night which is why I will probably join Nidd Valley, I am not sure I am up to jogging up to Harlow Moor before an actual run!!!! although I could get the old bike out of the shed.
Adie - hills don't scare me - Guy Fawkes 10 miler at Ripley!! Birstwith Brute!!
Ah, but some of us will do anything for a big bag of chocolate!!!!!
Och you lot. I finally get myself an early night and turn intoa gurka??!! Kiwis, I'll hold you to that pint you know - you'll never escape that one Problem with me doingEdinburgh is how will I run out from the bushes and surprise people?? I think last year's point was definitely more interesting than this years, though a bit more remote. I'm sure it made that section more interesting
Good luck with the midwife appoint Smout. Ooooh how exciting but not for me lol. 3 times was plenty thanks
I love watching stuff about Everest SCharm but like you have no desire to climb it! You need to be a millionnaire for a start it cost so much!!!!
Paris sounds great Adie - can you get you in-laws to pay for all your housemates too
Nope Soph, didn't get that one. What was it? Oh time for Jeremy Vine - must get the radio on while watching the tennnis too and folding the washing while making no.3's lunch. Oh I'm a busy bee today Look after yer lungs woman BTW, they'll be back soon enough, just take it easy
Howdi everyone else
Aw Soph Jeremy Vine is great -- he makes my afternoon I draw the line at the Daily Mail tho..... and yeah a blue rinse is definitely on the cards
Is this race where you get chocolate like the races where you get cake??? Those are just the best. Who needs a t-shirt or a medal
No.3 off for his school visit this afternoon - awwww.....
Bedshaped, the Guy Fawkes race at Ripley is partly sponsorded by Nestle so you get a carrier bag rammed full of chocolate and other goodies! You also get a t-shirt, but you have to remeber to ask for a size bigger than normal because you need it after stuffing your face with all the choclates!
