Just noticed a link on my FB page saying that LAA have spaces on this half marathon if anyone is interested…its on Sept 25th
We did a great job in 2009 but as LAA were not properly involved we had to get out own Tshirts etc sorted and pay our entrance fees. This would be a lot easier if anyone is keen.
I am considering it even though I am not sure my knee would really appreciate it…only just started running in the last month (having fecked my knee a week after the last half marathon and needing a wee bit of surgery on it last year)
I am happy to coordinate things if anyone is interested and may even just try upping my running to see what happens to my knee :w00t:
I’m doing a 10 K in the summer for the Afghanistan Libraries Program for disadvantaged kids / girls with no books at all at their schools. But not really started fundraising for that yetHOWEVER - since I always find running after work quite boring - if anyone else lives nearby and fancies running / training also then let me know. If I survive the 10 K without being carted over the finishing line on a stretcher then could be up for the half marathon with you folks:)
I’ve started getting a pain in my hip flexors on the same side as my knee op…doesnt hurt when I run though so will see how it goes with stretching.
You will be fine.
Plus I might just be there collecting evidence for my research paper (if I get approval) so I can cheer you on.
Okay so I have been in touch with LAA
Charity places cost £30 but individuals need to raise £300 due to the cost to LAA of charity places.
The better option is to pay for the place yourself and LAA will post out fundraising packs to everyone running for them through LB.
Places will fill up quickly so if you are keen to run please book a place now .
