Despite coffee and a brownie and a mild perking up, I am going to ditch track as crawling around or taking a nap on the track itself might be frowned upon.

RA you're a nutter, but a forward planning nutter :-)

I love that jacket! I have a ronhill one which is fab, and still wear my very first pair of running tights which are also ronhill

Go for it, DrL. Nice jacket LD.

I have had another lazy day. I've also had a word with myself. I'll see tomorrow if I was listening.

It is lucky/dangerous/expensive that Gear for Girls is half an hour away. It probably saves me much money that by coincidence it is in the wee town that the ILs live in, so I don't in fact visit it that often... (badperson)

LD - you could of warned us! We needed sunglasses to look at that jacket!

RA - volunteering is the best way to get a feel for the ultra's, hope to see you on route (I am on the wait list but hopeful of a place)

ITG - I ran the SDW100 last year so no distance PB's planned.

FP - You missed the mud, lot's of mud at Hell Runner too :-)

About This Thread

Welcome to the 700 miles in 2017 thread, everybody welcome :-)

The thread motto is:

'700 miles is neither necessary nor sufficient'

All you have to do is run about 1.91 miles per day or 13.46 miles per week or 58.33 miles per month and take a picture when you get to 700 miles of either you or the spot you reached the target or both if you want to. And if you go under or over 700 miles nobody will mind.

Join in the chat on the friendliest thread around - all things discussed and sometimes even some running is talked about.

Happy running :-)
