The photo was definitely the reason I signed up for the Ultra and you didn't dissappoint docchick, thanks
I've already uploaded my photo to Bragbook Facebook for some more adulation but I think most of my friends are now unfriending me....

That's another new event checked off, my first marathon finished. Really enjoyed the whole day, from meeting people before the start, on the course and afterwards. The whole organization of the day was great and everyone had a smile on their face the whole day! In terms of the race, found the last 5 miles quite rough, probably down to the fact that my preparation was lacking any real hill training. Still very much enjoyed the whole day though, even though my first marathon was on a really difficult course, it hasn't put me off the distance, already planning to do Dublin!

Thanks a mil Iain - great photos! As per our discussions on flickr, I've already shared mine on FB to show off to anyone willing to look!


Hope everyone is recovering well. I had a very lazy week. Did 3 easy miles on Friday and the legs felt good. Went out for 5 yesterday and took off like a brat to try out a new pair of runners - ended up running an average of 7:26...oops. Can't imagine that would be prescribed recovery pace for me. Taking today off as penance!!

Hi, will this thread be used for Connemarathon 2013 or will a new one be setup? Training at the moment for Ultra and would be great to chat to others doing the same? I have posted my own thread at https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/show...p?t=2056796169 but probably better to use an official one
