No he didn't make it.  He was carrying an injury the last 4 weeks and that hampered the training.  He was right on the pace it until mile 16 but just couldn't sustain it.  He still ran 3:13 though!!

I was talking to him last week and he mentioned the injury. Well done to all on the board that took part in the marathon whether successfully or not as it takes a hell of a lot of commitment just to even line up at the start. As much as I like running  I detest the marathon as much and I will never run one

What's next for you No.1?

I see the Garmin Forerunner 235 is 165 (185) on Amazon today.
Great price for a great watch.

Was coming on to ask about that watch - saw that on amazon.

Do you know if you can control amazon music with it? Have wanted something for running that looks decent enough as well and this seems to fit the bill

Don't know that sorry. I would hardly ever listen to music when running myself apart when on treadmill.

I bought the 235 myself today. Have had a 225 for a few years so this is a nice upgrade.

Is anyone doing Tollymore 10K at the start of Jan? Or has anyone done it in the past? What type of trainers would be best?

Who is organising that? Wouldn't mind doing it, also looked at the night races, one there too...need something to get back at it. Have never done the race but would have done plenty of running round Tollymore (and Castlewellan) park, its trail running really, although I have never worn anything other than my standard trainers a pair of trail trainers (soloman or the likes) would probably help. Depending on conditions it can get quite slippy, took a tumble myself there a few months ago.

cheers, I will probably just use my ordinary runners - reebok nanos - given the proximity to Christmas

Assuming it will mostly be around the black path of tollymore? If so i ran it a few years ago. Just ordinary runners will do fine.
