Benyo - they haven't sorted the final details yet but I was speaking to them last week (incidentally they are looking for pacers - will provide free t shirts, goody bags and transport costs if anyone's interested, have details if you want them) and it sounds like they will have a check point at Plumpton College before going up to Black Cap (almost the same route you took Benyo). Close to home for me so hope to get a few pals out (with food !). A clubmate of mine won the ExtremeRunning version the year after you did it (female race), the thing that bothered me was the reccying needed - I don't have the time or inclination. This one is really well supported, route marked etc so 'all' I have to do is the mileage
Mediocre Steyning Stinger yesterday, lost 15-20 mins in second half after falling, and then cramping. Trundled in at 4.30, still 20 mins less than last year but should've been better. Still, decent hard miles in the legs.
I went to a parkrun this morning with mrs P great fun.
After what I said to Benyo about membership. I don't seem to get notifications that other forum members have posted. Seems a little strange.
On the FB front, is it page set up or just friend everyone.
Not running again due to a cold and can't risk it getting any worse.
Viking - no page, just friends on FB at the moment. I'd try to find you if I knew your name !
Also from me - Good Luck any/all - have a great day !
Thanks OM! OG is buying the beers afterwards
OG, FB Roger Arnie Porter. Sorry it took so long, I've not had any notification until the one above from OMAHD. I thought I had been erased. So not much action on here then.
Not had a good time with running, only ran three times since Christmas due to various reasons. I just need to get my head around running again, enter an event to keep the motivation. I think there is a big race in London on 13th June 2014, I might enter that.
Hope you are all well and if you are running in VLM13, good luck, last I heard it was Mr Puffy and Benyo.
QQ and Mr P posted while I was typing, long time since I heard from you two. Glad you are still around.
The very best of luck all, its going to be another fabulous day for all of you. Not sure who is in apart from Daz Old Gwasshopper and Mr Puffy - best of luck you two ol timers and to any first timers -it will live long in your memory!
Claire cant see you on FB and so far I have spotted OG, SDM, MrP, Tiger Lilly.
I was watching the finish cameras, not sure what times you guys did, but at after 3.45 they changed the channel and cut the pictures. It's a bit annoying if you were finishing at around that time.
I saw one guy who just missed 3.00, he collapsed at the line but had the sense to swing his leg over the line to stop his chip clock.
Awaiting you stories.
The ballot for VLM 2014 opens on 29th April.
Just read one of my post above and noticed I put down the date of 13th June, that should have been April 13th.
Also looking forward to hearing your stories ! and great to see that so many still posting !
Have really enjoyed NOT marathon triaining this year but could be up for a reunion if there is one in the pipeline ......
Good to see you've gone back to QQ & not VSQ.
OG you are a legend! Back to back sub 4's --- quality chi !
How about Mr Puffy?
OMAHD and QQ it would be great if we could all get in for next year..I am defo going to apply as always - lets do it? I think I have a place anyway more than likely as Mrs Benyo deferred 2013 so we could dress as a girl for 2014
