Oh NO i dont

Kazza darling honeybee how are u
Masses of time Chris but it will soon come round!
I've entered. It's going to be interesting to see how close to the 10 minutes and 10 seconds past 10 o'clock that they get! I'll probably still be in the q for the loo
Hey Tracy, how's you?
Good thanks Kaz How you doing? Recovered from Brighton and illness following Not a chance to recover from one cos of the other. Going bed soon a supporting OH at VLM tomorrow, early
I think this might be too far... was just planning ahead. Is it a nice run?
Tracy, having a hard marathon and then being poorly is a real double-whammy you poor thing. How did G-Mike get on today? It was very humid out there today.
As minardi says GER's a great run. I've done it three times now. It isa fair old trek but it's one that I'd not miss now.
Hey Kaz, Mike did a fab 3.47 which is particularly great after his 3.40 last week Am well proud of him
Hey 2btiny Think it's too far really....
well I am in, I was looking for a farly local flat half marathon to try and get a PB under 2 hours, so this could be the one.
Hi Tracey B hopefully you dont think I am stalking you, hope you are well
take care all
not sure on the scenery, and I dont know Peterborough that well, I have chose it as needed a half marathon in the autumn as part of my marathon prep for next April, and was going to do Cransley half, but work are entering a team and it looks like it will be for the 10k so will do that instead, and as for running around Peterborough in a cobblers shirt, you are brave !!
Haha, I know a few P*sh fans who will give me a bit of banter.
Cransley is a lovely course, highly recommended if you haven't done it before. Certianly not a flat one though.
I did the Brighton Marathon and the cheering crowds there was the best bit of it, so i am looking forward to the Great Eastern Run.
Sounds good Mainardi, you can't be local support. I'm getting more sold on this, although I probably wouldn't recieve any jelly babies if I wore my Cobblers top. I may have to come incognito haha.
Having done a few Milton Keynes races in the past, there is nothing worse than running around deserted housing estates. Northampton lacks a big event so hopefully "The Run" which is a 10K will extend to a half next year.
I'm in!! I'm actually quite nervous as it will be my first half marathon However very pleased that it's flat!
3rd year in a row for me, i'll 2nd most of the points already raised, flat course, great support, ive PB'd every year (sub 1:15hrs this year fingers crossed!)
Course goes back to its normal route this year i think, also an earlier start will help as the weathers been red hot on occasion!
im from Peterborough originally so always enjoyable running through all my old haunts & past the family house,omplete with family support sat sunbathing with drinks/icecream........(how on earth thats meant to be a motivational sight i dont know!)
counting down now and really looking foward to getting there, hows everyones training going?
Hi to all that know me and those that dont
GER is an awesome event and as has been mentioned not that scenic BUT the locals REALLY do become apart of this event and come out to support, its almost a Mini London Mara just i bit more personal
I'm gutted i cant run this event as i'm running in a Marathon the week before and a Xcountry Marathon the week after, I'm also working on GER day so i really am snookered but its probably for the best as I may well have tried to fit it in
for those who've run this before you SO know how good this event is, for those who've not run it yet GET IN and DO IT, trust me you'll be back the following year as GER is THAT infectious
I look forward to reading everyones race views on here Good,Bad or Indifferent, remember as a runner your in the top 10% of the fittest/healthy within the UK which in its self makes you all special and part of the elite
good luck one and all
