It's been a long time, but...

1999 North Central Trail Marathon (perfect weather)
3:05:54
22nd of 350

I achieved my goal of qualifying for the 2000 Boston Marathon, then injured myself training for (and running) it. I've barely run since. :-(

2000 RRCA Club Challenge Ten Miler (cold, light rain)

Thanks! It was quite flat, though. The trail is next to a river. ;-)

It was fun the crossing but a little high with all the rain we've had. I was one of the lucky ones who didn't fall in - just!! There were plenty of spectators to cheer if you did. You can check it out on

http://www.dk10k.co.uk/webpagesforDKWEB ... age_15.htm

(luckily there are no pictures of me!!)

I would recommend it to anybody as anyone can enter the National XC league events and it isn't often you run a xc event with 750 people!! (this race incorporates the National XC league and Birmingham Leagues 1-4)
And just to note - there used to be 2 river crossings a lap (3 laps) in this race!!

And the XC relays are always a highlight - a fantastic course and all the top UK runners. Inspiring!

Another result:

8.6km XC (Undulating Frozen moorland!!) 30:21

Got persuaded to do race although I hate the course (Stafford Common, Staffs) - it had been improved but is still vile, boring and rutted!! Now suffering with dodgy ankles and sore, bruised knees. That's what you get for being a club-man!!

Just readin your earlier posts BTK about the Birmingham League and I was gonna ask you whether you had ever done Stafford Common.

Never really trained over it, but trudged up and down it 'nuf times. Yep, horrible ground - either really muddy on the lower part ( not helped by the fact the Fair was in town a couple of weeks back ), or the upper part of the Common has very marshy, boggy ground with tough, heavy grass.

Well done with the results.

Cheers fella.

Yeah, I thought the mud was bad until I ran it frozen!!! The ruts were sharp and every other stride my legs bashed one another. They have changed the course since I last ran it (2002) and it has made it better but still not the best (too flat, too boring, bad ground). Luckily had a good battle with a group of 4 of us which livened it up a little - as well as an icy stream to cross.

Will be putting something else in the diary for next year (although knowing me the club will still manage to get me out!!).

Any races coming up for you?

I hope to do the Wheaton Aston 10k on Boxing Day. I came 9th a couple of years back. Chris Davies won at a canter in a full Santa suit. Still managed around 30mins. :roll:

Will do the Stafford half in March.

I've gone into hibernation in terms of racing. That's living in London for you. Gotta get racing again. Oughta check the Runners World website - there should be a few races I can enter.

I twisted my ankle quite bad a month or so ago, so I've been restin and runnin easy of late. My runs the last week have been strong so it's good to get a bit of speed and strength back. I always seem to run better on the cold, dark nights for some reason.

You gonna join us in Bramley in February Tarz? A nice flat 10 miler, or you could always conquer your 20 mile demons :D

Yep, will probably be up for this one SW.

Only the 10 though, the 20miler demons will have to be conquered another time.
