    Well, looks like we now have a running club. :Laughing:

    Got a PM from Gerry Hughes asking if I was doing the Liverpool Half marathon in a couple weeks and I wasn't. Didn't take much persuading though and I'm now in.

    Gerry is off doing a Marathon later this year so good luck with that, I on the other hand are doing my first international marathon The Medoc in France in full fancy dress and with all water stops replaced by wine. :RollEyes:

    Any other runners joining me and Gerry this year.

    Or is it "just the two of us":Cool:

    Brilliant. We run (and cycle/kayak/ski...). I'm doing Llanelli half on Sunday (quite local to me). The Medoc is definately on my bucket list! We could have a section where we post any events we're planning on doing. I'll keep an eye on here coz we're always looking for something to do. Quite fancy a mudrunner or equivalent dirty race :Wink::Wink::Wink:

    Well look no further than posting here in this thread.

    Im doing the cloud 9 hill race on Sunday. 9 miles cross country with about 7 of it being up hill. At least the weather is looking good.
    What time you hoping for on Sunday?

    Next up for me after Sunday is the Liverpool Half, In April Im doing the South Cheshire 20, 20 miles of cross country through Cheshire's villages then In May its the Chester Half Marathon now thats a good race. :thumb:

    Paul firstly i think you should change the title to plodders club i think running might be pushing it a bit :Rofl1::Rofl1:


    Glad to hear you are joining me in the Liverpool half we can run together 6min miles ok for you :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Had a look at the Medoc i think i would need a Medic after it, looks good not ruling myself out but very unlikely this year and the fact i dont drink wine i would have to give it to Steve since he offered to be our water boy.

    Hi Jill glad to see other runners on here i see you fancy doing a muddy one well i'm thinking of doing the tough mudder http://toughmudder.co.uk/events/scotland/ with some guys from work(only for fun though) you could join our team or just run with us and you would be more than welcome to pitch up at ours as we are only 14m away. Anyone else thinking of doing feel free to join us.

    Gerry

    Hi Hag
    Firstly hoping to run all the way, I haven't done a half for a few years, and if I can get close to 2 hours I'll be a happy bunny:Laughing:

    Thanks for the offer Gerry but that may be a bit far for us at the moment. Too many work and family commitments:Sad:

    I've enjoyed your reports on Val T, Haganap. We went to Gerardmer at the same time and really loved it. But your group sounded like you had a ball.

    Wish me luck for Sunday, I'll let you know how I get on:thumb:

    There is actually a campsite in the Forest for this one Gerry. If you are a member of CCC its the Delamere forest site.
    Its a nice site and good for mountain biking as well. :thumb:

    Well Im back from a very wet and Muddy cloud 9 hill race. 9 miles, mainly up extremely steep hills that needed to be walked, through mud, water and more mud, Snow on top of the hill. And I managed to knock 9 mins of last years time :thumb: coming in at 1-30, thats a good time for that type of race.

    My secret? Well, last night I was called in to work last moment to work the night shift. I have now had no sleep for about 36 hours so im off to bed. :Laughing:

    Well done Paul good time sounds really tough.

    Well i just went out and did 13.31km according to my Garmin in old money thats 8.27miles a very hard first half into wind and hilly but managed a quick second half well for me anyway did it in a time of 1hr 11m. Left the house just in shorts and T shirt thinking it was summer :Rofl1: it was freezing and had a sleet shower 6m from home should know not to trust Scottish weather by now. Really sore instep again think the trainers need changed.

    Now for the stupid bit have been reading about Ice baths so stuck loads of tupper ware tubs of water in the freezer and when i came in had a ice/cold water bath, well dont know if it has done me any good but first time Lorraine has laughed in the last few weeks so well worth it:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Jill your lot sound very fir and active i took my daughter who is 14 out running one night and after getting home she said what was the point in that just running to get back here:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Best bit is she could be good if she tried as was hardly out of breath after 5m and she hadn't run before.
