It looks like you're new here. Sign in or register to get started.
I stand corrected Daz! On Easter hols now - 2 weeks of doing very little! Apart from totally wrecking our bedroom to accommodate new fitted wardrobes. Why does everything have to get so messy before there's any improvement? Have to take the old ones out first so that we can re-site 2 of them in the box room - storage for my running kit and OH's golf kit!
Good luck with all your tapering
I may be up on Saturday too so hope to meet you guys (and Caro?)
If I don't see you Daz hope all goes well xx
I've got sniffles - want em to bogoff!!
Got Friday off for expo , but may go get my number on Wed, as my work is so close to the Excel centre can do it at lunchtime!!
What are peoples runnning numbers?

My sister has deferred her Boston place for a yr as typically there is going to be a relative heat wave in Boston tomorrow!! Supposed to get to over 30c and sunny,
And that's one of the reasons why my running has hit the buffers this year. Absolutely no fun trying a complete a run at 8 at 30+ degrees and climbing! Needless to say not doing London this year. Can't defer either, as I deferred last year because I was in Canada.
Apologies for my absence, and I'm certainly unlikely to attempt to read back, but it has been a touch chaotic relocating downunder, to say the least.....
Just wanted to pop in to say, Daz, best of luck for Sunday. I hope you nail the PB.
And to all others, enjoy the occassion whether helping, supporting, 'expo'ing, or grinding out another marathon.
Windy – saw this briefly yesterday but didn’t have chance to reply. Shame your not doing VLM, but as you say you’ve not been able to do the training. Glad to hear from you and assume that you and family are settling in nicely - “Put another shrimp on the Barbie”. My heart bleeds about running in that heat lol.
As I lay awake at about 0530 listening to the howling wind and rain did I think of running in a warmer climate, oh no!
As I stood outside at about 0600 in jacket, hat and gloves waiting for Garmin to get a signal, did I think of running in a warmer climate, oh no!
As the rain was hitting me so hard in the face at one point it felt like hail, did I think of running in a warmer climate, oh no!
As you can tell I’m not jealous lol.
Anyway, I managed to JFDI and ran to one of England’s most famous landmarks here, only 4.01 hilly miles at a sluggish 8:13 pace, and I was like a drowned rat when I got back pmsl.
Good to hear from you too Pinks. Well done on the 4hrs at Brighton, just got to shave off 6 seconds next time lol. However, as you say considering where you started you have every right to be chuffed!
Dave – my number is 4416. Have a good race!
If anyone is likely to be around at Expo on Sat, send me your no by RW Mail and I’ll endeavour to catch up with you. I have Gatton’s no and am certain to pop in and see him. We should be there early/mid afternoon.
Be good y’all!
Cheers Daz, sluggish 8:13mm , gulp , I'll be over the moon with approx 10mm (fast lol ) , but first goal is sub 5 hours!!!
Pinks - you are utterly amazing and it was sub 4 hours cos you ran further than 26.2 eh !
my number is 9293......
