I'd love snow in London. I got some yaktrax for Christmas and I'm desperate to try them out.
No sign so far
Well, call me impetuous but I've just entered the Great South Run on 27th October so at the moment I'm racing at 4 different distances this year
Two things I have discovered:
1. It is possible to put an iPod shuffle attached to a running shirt through a 30 minute washing machine cycle without it coming to any harm.
2. Even eyeballs can feel cold.
Go on Screamy - you know you want to.
Working at home and trying to get up motivation to go for a run. As you see, I am neither working nor running, but wasting time on the internet. I need a kick.

Tell you the great thing about marathon training - not had a hint of usual jan blues- made winter almost bearable
Funny you should say that, I haven't either but I have to be honest and say it's probably because of the mild weather more than anything - I love running in the freezing cold but I don't like it the rest of the time.
Talking of which, brrrr.....still, at least the sun is out in London this morning.
Happy February everyone!
That's a pretty good price for your rail travel, good to get it sorted.
That's a sound decision on the expo - I don't think I'd ever go on the Saturday. I'm lucky that I can get there on any of the days so I'll probably go on the Thursday. Last time around a group of people from the same thread met up there on the Thursday night, it was good fun - if anyone wants to do that we can.
Down here we have snow forecast for Sunday - between 4-10cm of it I'm not sure what I'll do if that happens, I think running 14 miles in it might be too difficult althought walking it might be possible - in fact it might be quite a good workout. I don't really want to do a shorter run as I did one last week and more time on my feet might be more beneficial - although how long would it take to walk 14 miles in snow I don't know - 5 hours maybe?
Ho hum - hey maybe the door will have a snowdrift against it and I'll just have to stay in and eat biscuits instead (hopes).....
I'm glad I washed my Helly Hansen!
Gues who just bought a new bottle and running top? Was tempted to get a neon pink hat but resisted

I got a neon pink Ron Hill hat for christmas - matches my face when I'm running
Well done Siony - did you run 16 miles in the dark? You are made of stern stuff. I did my 16 miles this morning - before it started snowing here. Blimmin freezing. My poor bum actually hurt with the cold, and now my face is burning! But I did it and am quite proud because I SO didn't want to leave the house this morning. Tomorrow I get to stay in bed and drink tea while watching the snow and feeling virtuour, and laughing at my old man who is supposed to go for a run in the morning. But given the weather, maybe nobody is running tomorrow.
Enjoy the snow.
