  • do you have to mention that !!!!!!!imageimage

    got some heat pads to bring too so will be all toasty image

  • Snow for New York or Wicksteed?

    I'd def go with the thermals Angie!  Nice one about the dates/birthday

    My, ahem, 40th is next year and I want to do Medoc image

  • for wicksteed image

    i dont think i could cope with medoc image "hic"image

  • Lol, I fancy the dressing up more than the wine bit! image
  • yeah does look funimage
  • image It's new years day we could do a mini medoc if you want? There is a netto in kettering, cheap wine and some pringles? imageimage 
  • Lol Cake, love that idea image

    I've got some nutter type club mates that do Beachy each year with a camelbak of wine!

  • pringles and pepsi max for me image
  • Lol. Prob coke for me too. Might have to drive back to Kent after the run.

  • well im driving down and then back on the day from chesterfield image
  • Yikes. That's a fair old drive!
  • yeah but better than just vegging out all day doing nothingimage
  • True image

    Can't decide whether to hang round after the run or go straight back and attempt the Dartford Crossing, which does feel like sitting around doing nuffing when busy!!!

  • Lloyd, would you happen to know if any of the park is open NYD?  I'd guess the rides aren't of course, but do remember it had slides/swings etc.  Change of plan means Mini C will be coming to watch mummy and likes slides! image
  • just looked on their website and says its open NYDimage
  • but not the rides
  • Ta Angie, what I thought but their website wasn't playing for me earlier!  Cool, wrap him up warm and he can have some fun!
  • Can you give me some advice guys? I am thinking of entering this, but i;ve been out injured for months and only starting to get back running regularly over the last few weeks.

     I've done a 10miler so should be ok to get round, but it wont be quick and i'm a bit worried i'll be last, i dont mind being near the back but dont want to be miles back from everyone else.

    I would think i'll be at around the 11min mile pace, so thats going to be 2h15 to 2h30ish. Will i make a fool of myself or am i worrying needlessly??

  • vs4B, you'll be just about the same speed as me, I'm hoping for around 2h15 image

    I've done 2 8's so far, m7 10 mile race tomorrow been cancelled due to snow but we've still got 4 weeks till this so you should be fine

    Got my number today, I'm 1844 image

    Congrats on the twins RLR image

    Well done too Angie, that's a phenomenal lot of weight lost image

    Thanks Cinders

    So do you reckon it'll fill up or would you expect entries on the day to be allowed?

    I've still to broach the subject with the wife image

  • Hope your trainings going well guys. Mine has fallen flat though going to try and force myself to do a 9 miler tomorrow. Was something I was running regularly but been put off by the cold. Will attempt to do a few training runs between now and the event and hoping to go for a Christmas day run.
  • Good luck for tomorrow Wexter image

    I'm not up to 9 yet, done 2 8's though, there's still time.

    RLR, don't know about on the day entry, have you mentioned it to your wife yet???

    Can you run during the day (i.e. lunch times).  I have started doing this myself as I don't expect to have much time in the evenings anymore and it's certainly easier going out in daylight and slightly warmer temperatures.
  • How's everyone doing? 

    I do hope we don't have snow image

  • The long range forecast for where I live in London is milder by Christmas. Got stuck at work on Saturday and walked 9 miles home.  Good unofficial training. Forced myself to do a 20 minute run today in the snow which felt harder then a 9 mile run.
  • Happy Xmas everyone! Glad the snow has gone ( and my chesty / flu). Just downloaded garmin and found last run was Bedford 1/2 marathon. So apart from a 6m 2 days ago I've not been out running! Whooops! Blame SNOW and illness.

    Bit worried will struggle tomorrow. However I did knock 9min off PB at Bedford 1/2 .

    This is only my 3rd 1/2 marathon. Does anyone know if 5km and 10km racers will start at the same time and place as us? Bit concerned of mayhem, and when it comes to lapping!

    Will wickies be charging car park as normal?

    Don't drink too much everyone, but have a great New Year.image

  • the instructions say all races start at 11:11.
  • Am fighting off a cold today. Hoping to take it easy tonight and be there tomorrow. Think it starts around 11.00 though I am leaving on a 9.00 a.m train from London so early start. Will be struggling to run a PB which is sub 2 hours the way I am feeling today.
  • I really quite fancy this - my wife is working tomorrow early so we aren't going out , though it's a 120 mile round trip I think it could be just the kick start I need to bring in the new year. I'll have to enter when I get there so I suspect 1030 will be the latest to get there really. I won't be going round very quick but it'll be good fun and it the only half available round here tomorrow.
  • ive got a further round trip image

    but im coming to marshall it, but now wish i was running

    see you all there i'll be the one with the red spikey hair image
