    Think Bruce might be on to something there, good way to get up some of those hills. image Splendid plan, thanks Bruce, I'll pick mine up on the day if you don't mind feedind it etc between now and then.

  • Actually mrs h-mouse, we could have a plan here ... my father-in-law has a couple of (highlands I think) ponies that he uses for hacking and driving .... I'm thinking we could make a fair bit hiring them out form the bottom of the hills !


  • image Don't put the signs too close to The Love Station though, the '£10 a Ride' signs may be misconstrued.










    we'll be charging £20.....

  • Got my first ultra under my belt. 30 miles with about as much climb as Giant's head. So i am feeling more optimistic..........i think lol. Only problem it took my 6hrs 50mins to do it! So I have a feeling no world records will be threatened image I am not dreding this now and really looking forward to it. Best thing about the ultra yesterday was the chatting and encouragement. I took my Ipod and didn't use it because I was chatting too much. I got a feeling the GH will be the same image

    Well done on the ultra Vicar!

  • Hog-mouseHog-mouse ✭✭✭

    If you can run a hill ultra then this will be nothing. You'll be well away. 6hrs or less easily. That's me being pessimistic.

    I don't think I'll have spare breath to chat, I was breathing very heavily just walking up some of my training hills yesterday.

    Lee should I be putting up a sign with the word drinks crossed out and 

                            Shag Ahead

    Please have the correct change ready

  • GB, didnt know thats what you had in mind yesterday when you said to me are you 'doing' the Giants Head? image

    super marshalling by everyone yesterday BTW image


  • goldbeetlegoldbeetle ✭✭✭

    MM nice to see you and Max yesterday. Did you enjoy your run?

    Lee the Pea is using the Marathon to promote her "personal sevices" sideline. It will involve complimentary intercourse for marathon runners at 20 miles.

  • Not sure i'll have the energy at 20 miles,  but a nice offer i'm sure image image

    yes good run yesterday, finally managed to break the hour for a 10k, whoop whoop!

    can't believe the time the winners came in at image

  • LOL Goldie!!!!!

  • goldbeetlegoldbeetle ✭✭✭

    sub 30 

  • GB are you talking seconds there?


    and if so is that a Personal Best or a love-station requirement ? (keep the queues down!)

    I won't be chatting, I'll just be swearing under my breath (as usual) image

    KK, there will be no swearing under my breath ... my about hill 4 or 5 (notice how this race is being measured by hill numbers now rather than miles) the swearing will be loud and often !!

    It will be enough to make Julie Andrews blush ... "the hills are alive, with the sound of #*£$!  "
