Wahoo, thanks Rio
This needed to be a separate thread - if we'd put it in any of the existing ones then some people would have missed it, or maybe felt awkward about jumping in to something that's been established for a few months. .
Now the main event's over, loads of us have said that we'd hate it if we all just lost touch and drifted off. There are people who I know will be mates for life, but there are loads of others from my thread, Pixie's, Lucy's, the support threads,not to mention the rest of the super six lot who've got to know each other and been a massive source of support and encouragement to each other over the past few months.
A bunch of us from my thread and support group 7 are hoping to meet up and run the Birmingham half on 24th October an/or the Bedford half in December, just as a starter. Even if you can't make either of those, no worries, we can always fix up others, maybe at different parts of the country so that everyone can make some of them. We've had a really special thing going between us over the past few months, so let's try and keep it. What do people reckon?
I think it is a fab idea.
Or for a fast flat half with pb potential there is always Cardiff Half on 17th October too
I like the look of this new thread!!!
Defnitely up for Bedford!!! And a few of us are doing Run To The Beat in September if anyone fancies it- thats my new goal- I know I know only 2 days after the last one but if I don' have anything to train for I won't really be arsed to go out and doing any decent running! Going to try and get under the 2hrs mark!!!
Right off to help boyfriend to sort out papaerwork at work ready for his impending audit- just think he wants to see me walk down the 2 flights of stairs to his office
Sounds good too, then hopefully people who couldn't get to one could get to the other. Like the sound of "flat" a lot!
Just off to give a few people a little prod in this direction
May I join here? I was not a runner but I was a supporter (and list maker). And I am doing the Cardiff Half in Oct.
Also, someone on Sunday planted a seed in my mind about me being able to run a marathon (plodded one in 2005 rather badly) and I have been thinking about that comment a lot since. I am thinking of either Edinburgh and/or Abingdon 2011
Of course you can lovely List Fairy I didn't run it either!
Bedford Half sounds good to me
Just to let everyone know I was looking at marathon photo website and they're starting to put up the pics and i managed to get this one copied and its doesn't have any of that copyright stuff on it so head on over
Woot woot, it's working
Please can someone post up a link to the photo website? I've tried googling it, but all I'm getting is mass shots rather than the individual ones
Morning All, love to join the thread, having completed my first Marathon, does anyone know of a good marathon to do in sept/ October,(a quiet, flat one) like to try and maintain this level of fitness, rather than let it all go and get under that 4 hours!!!
A special mention to Schmunkee, a massive thank you for organising the RW supporters and groups at mile 17.......
Does getting down the stairs in under 10 minutes count as VLM Surviving! I'm hurting in places that i didn't even know existed. Great atmosphere, do all the pain again next year!
PS Fanks for thread tip off Hash.
There is only one of me so far
...........only one so far of me!
I didn't bother with the finish line one. Haven't for years! Does that make me a bad person?
I wouldn't have even if I had a pb. Not paying silly prices any more!
I only have a few photos - when I first started running.
Most of the shots I have now are taken by supporters and G.
My medals are slung in a heap at the bottom of my wardrobe! lol Yes the IM one was lovely but again is not anywhere special. The memories are worth far more
You'd never guess I'm not at work to day would you......
