Just think of all the things one could do on Christmas eve and Mrs TW did this
AS mad as a hatter
That is making my legs cold just by looking.
They aren't as nuts as they look for the run ended at a pub with hot showers and good food and plenty of ale.
Cool Christmas Eve.
Anyone ever done a 24hr thunder run? The mad Mrs TW has entered one in July www.tr24.co.uk I'm going as driver and general laughing at the nutters.
I always knew Mrs TW was mad as a box of frogs. Those pictures prove it!
So....3 1/2 years after my last run, and after a couple of weeks practice on the treadmill I've been out today for my first road run.
3.8 miles in 50 minutes - not half bad! Was very weird as I can no longer feel my feet after my back surgery, going down hill at full pelt wasn't much fun - had to slow down just to make sure my feet were on the floor.
Couldn't believe the distance I'd clocked when I mapped it back at home - very, very pleased Fully expected to be home in a heap after half a mile!
Ah crAp. Appear to have hurt my knee
Might get me out of burpees at training tomorrow at least
The 2013 race takes place on Friday 21st June at 19:15. If you are 18 or over and want to run we advise entering early as the race has sold out in both of the last two years. Matt Whitfield of Notts A.C. won last year's race in 33:32 with Greg Southern as runner up in 35:16. Clair Spencer of Newark A.C. was first lady home in 39:18 with Rebecca Taylor runner up in 40:28.
This will be the third running of this midsummer evening 10km road race organised by Grantham Running Club in the quiet lanes around Long Bennington. It will be even bigger than last year with the race having a larger 350 runner limit.
The accurately measured course whilst not pancake flat and despite the wind delivered many 'seasons best' and a few elusive pb's.
The race started 432 metres from the 'Race HQ' - the Long Bennington Sports Pavilion, Main Road, Long Bennington, NG23 5HE and finishes at the entrance to the playing fields. The location is conveniently located off the A1 just north of Grantham.
Sleaford Brewery will be supplying the Specially Labeled Summer Solstice Ale for all finishers PLUS a Real Ale Bar featuring cask Best Bitter, Pale Ale, Meadowbrook Cider and even their own Pilsner Lager, so hang about after the race and make it a social night! Food and soft drinks will also be available
