Should be doing this today but I've done something to my ankle doing a NYE marathon in Liverpool and I can't walk, never mind run Currenlty lying on my bed with my laptop and it is even hurting when rested and elevated - this could be a serious one I think.
Gutted as 2011 is going to be an intense year. I have Ironman in July and training was supposed to be intense and daily to whip me in to shape. If I can't even lie down without being in pain, what hope is there to be up & walking any time soon?
Good luck to everyone today, hope you all get a nice 1/2 marathon in to kick start an awesome new year.
Disappointed to miss this for the second year, last year it got postponed re-arranged for Feb(i think?) and i was ill and AGAIN it comes around and i have been ill over the Xmas period and still recovering.
Ah well, maybe 2012 is my year!
Very enjoyable race
Well organised and a very flat course with PB potential.
Weather was perfect for runnin-sadly im a stone too heavy but i struggled round and was happy enough with my time.
Wouldve loved to have had a post race massage but a bacon roll and coffee were more important to me at the time.
Thanks to all the organisers
results up already
Ha ha Scott.
The driver wasn't very impressed when I said we'd put the signs out in English so people would understand them
After everyone had kindly stood aside to let him through, he got stuck behind the safety car
I don't think he heard me
Great run, thanks to all the organisers and marshalls for making it go so smoothly! Thanks also to the guy with the beard and the red 'Moore 6' vest top on who was on my tail all the way round - without him I don't think I would have pushed myself as hard and got a PB!!
Hopefully will get to do this again next year when I spend new year with mum in blackpool.
Cracking run and enjoyed Brian hammering the driver, nice way to start the day.............
Defo one to add to the list, cakes looked really nice and the mars bar was needed indeed..
Thanks to all the organisers, volunteers and marshalls
I liked the `it`s 10 minutes until the start and the start line is15 minutes that way!`
Well done to the organisors.The bacon butties and coffee in the centre were ace...thanks to the lasses feeding us all.
Enjoyed the race..nice to have a quiet time running rather than the masses of the GNR to trip over.
Might come back next year...okay I will...one moan can the water stations be at 9 mile instead of roughly 11 miles...the signs promised us drinks from mile 8..which wound me up at bit..
Thanks anyway lovely folk...and isn't it posh and nice around Catforth?
Richard - hope the fundraising went well. Good for you! If it's any consolation I went straight to the massage people straight after the race!! Thanks again for the motivation and you weren't being rude at all !
Great race, enjoyed it very much .
Sounds like I was around you too Frodo. The red "Moore 6" (hi Richard ) was just ahead of me for a good while, but I lost sight of you towards the end.
I was recovering from Xmas chesty cold germs, and hadn't run for nearly 3 weeks, so I definitely wasn't racing (nowhere near a PB!!), but that made it all the more enjoyable. No pressure.
I saw the poor chap struggling and being sick towards the end, hope he made it back OK.
if anybody was near me, I was the misguided runners who was told to cross-over onto the pavement on the rhs (at about 12-13miles), and then switched back again after being reminded that road races are always stick left (I knew that really, just lemming mentality of doing as I'm told!!).
One minor gripe, perhaps more than one ladies loo.........otherwise a perfectly organised fab race, I'll definitely be back next year.
It was you that Brian was encouraging me to race!
I was just as bad, I followed you when that guy told us to run on the right. I tell you, that swerve from left to right to left really felt like it added an extra half mile on at that particular point, even though it could only have been a couple of yards
