  • In Sweden.

    Cath - Where in Canada? Some good running there!
  • Wish I was in Trinidad just now instead of snowy Scotland. It's freezing! Brrrrrrrrr.
  • Triathlete & Marathon runner, in Germany. Great sports facilities and clubs.
  • Can i join you?
    Currently in New York soon to move to Germany
  • Cath, off to Toronto end march for a couple of days R&R before going to Vancouver on business..whats the weather like?

    Termite..Sweden..mmmmm cold or what!

    GJP.. What running in Central park like?
  • Termite - where in Sweden? I go on business to Stockholm regularly and would appreciate knowing where's safe to run in the evenings ....

    .....and how the **** you convince yourself to go out when it's so coooold (Helsinki is proving even worse in this!)
  • Sometimes central park feels like the runing capital of the world the number of runners you see out there. Its a completely "awesome" experience especially running around the reservoir at twilight. You see all the buildings in midtown manhattan lit up as a backdrop including the empire state building. Definately be a memory I take with me. Nearly beats running the coastal path in Cornwall at sunset.
  • Not so cold at the minute - so the snow is more like slush and a little challenging to run in - makes some good noises though. Chickening out and heading for a treadmill today.

    Trinirunner - FYI been -35 with windchill in Toronto not so long ago! Enjoy.

    Heckenhocker - Live just over an hour west of Stockholm, not been here so long - but seems that Sweden is one of the safer countries in the world and have wandered around Stockholm late at night with no worries. Seem to be a number of trails on Djurgården and Ladugårdgärdet region (close to the centre), think also on Lidingo.
  • GJP - where in Germany are you moving to?
  • I'm moving to Dresden in April
  • GJP, agree on coast. I love the north Devon coast path, I've run miles of it. Nothing yet to beat it the world over!

    Termite sounds like I need to take the cold weather gear to Tronno!
  • Being a Cornishman I have to say there is one thing that beats teh North Devon coast. The North Cornwall coast
  • GJP - sorry, Dresden's about 5 hours north of me! I've been there once.
  • Does a Yorkshireman in Northern Ireland count??
  • Ooh and a Geordie in Bershire..........

    Trinnirunner. Cath is only on a snowboarding hol in Banff at the moment, Im amazed you havent heard about it. Apparently at the Moment its about -15/20 give or take a few degrees.
    No doubt she will start up a thread when she gets back and will let us all know how it went :)
  • Welshman in Zuzzex..........

  • Welshman helping the English out in Yorkshire.....

    (they need all the help they can get ;0))
  • The only country I know where they charge you to get out :( so as to keep people in !!!!
  • no Nicko - we charge you to get in, we let you out for free..........
  • Nicko, didn't realize it was that Cath. Yes, I knew she was skiing.

    Yorkshiremen are always ex pats when they leave Yorkshire!
  • Dubai is the place to be for a nice sweaty run! Nothing beats running the SOUTH Devon Coastal path (All my Cornish relatives would be very upset if they knew I said that).

    Dubai Dave
    Trinrunner
    Ironwolf
    Swiss Bobby

  • Tri runner,

    Dubai Marathon in 3-45. Abu Dhabi marathon on 18th March, then FLM and then the biggy Comrades on the 16th June. After that I think I'll have a break, last year I didn't take a break after Comrades and promptly got injured!
