Duncs just got a PB in Abingdon so not going to very fresh for this. - felt not at all bad. I think the wind and the rain and the hills distracted me from the aching in my legs. Very tough but loads of fun. 100 Marathon Club, Bracknell Forest Runners 3:23:46 3:23:46 5:00:00 3:48:53 54.90

eL Bee!  	Snowdonia Marathon - Going great as a paced run until 21 miles where the wind in my back that was ferreezing the hairs off my legs (and meant my calves were bloody freezing) meant that I was fighting cramp for 3 miles, and missed running up the hill from Waunfawr - which I was REALLY looking forward to! Strangely the off-road descent was fine - And I picked up everyone who'd gone past me in the preceding couple of miles - and then some! Cracking run in with a youngster over the last mile. My actual pace for the finish was 4:41m/m - so definitely hadn't overworked the legs - I think they just ran out of glycogen because they were cold! SO wish I'd gone with my initial instinct to wear long socks (or long tights!!! Cumberland AC 2:59:43 3:50:46 3:50:46 55.17

Will Crash 3rd time of running...............nutter.
UPDATE!!
Fine up to the 21 mile mark and on course for a good PB and then legs cramped along with stomach to make the last five a truly horrendous cold survival ordeal, but I did it. Metropolitan Police AC (London (Col)) 3:41:29 4:04:22 3:40:00 4:04:22 50.72

Velociraptor A splendid event. Tricky course (the last 4 miles are particularly challenging) and we had truly horrible weather today. I'm delighted with the way I ran and with my time, but suspect I may take a week to thaw out. Cumberland AC, FERC 3:36:39 4:09:54 4:30:00 4:09:54 57.61
Cavey I'm in. God knows what to expect, but i'm thinking hills!! UPDATE i absolutely loved it. Felt comfortable all the way, and wish i'd pushed a bit more between 21 and 24 as i might have sneaked under 4.30 then. Handsworth Roadhogs RC 4:12:04 4:12:04 4:59:00 4:33:26 44.97
