Bristol UK Half Marathon 2003


I'm feeling very tense because I'm running in the Bristol Half Marathon tomorrow at 0930 and I just had to tell someone. Any other runners out there?

Anything non-Linux related goes in the General forum, not the Linux - General forum. Please try to make a mods like easier and post in the most appropiate forum. Thanks.

Good luck in the marathon....

My legs really hurt - half marathon by-the-way :-) - and yes... I think I made the top 15%....I'll wait for the results before I remove the "I think" - not bad for a wine guzzling 39 year old. I feel great!

By the way Freakygeek55, it's just a matter of training. I started running in 2000 when I quit a 30 a day habit. If you like running - start NOW!!!!

I don't like running, I should run.. or atleast walk! I don't, and I really don't care to.. If I wanted to train I would.. Still I applaud those who do care, and who do train to be good runners..
