    Good luck. Half marathon sounds like a good challenge. :thumbsup:

    I've decided all I want for 2018* is a sub 1 hr 50 half-marathon. I'll be 43 in February, my days for running fast are numbered. I'm super motivated. Even thinking of getting a coach.




    * apart from world peace, the impeachment of certain politicians, women to stand strong, action taken to slow global warming....etc...

    For me it'll be my first proper ultra, I've done a couple of over distance marathons, but this'll be my first proper one.

    The problem is that this will be just a month after a London to Paris 24hour ride.

    Doing Race to the Stones. I wanted to do it in one hit but my running buddy insisted on doing it over two (his house is very close to the half way point) but it's probably a good idea considering my healh scare back in September.

    Did my first half marathon this year in 1:41:20 so next year’s goal is to complete Stirling marathon. Not setting a target other than to finish.

    My wife did it this year in one hit, nearly bloody killed her! She’s doing it again this year but in two goes, we also live close to the HW point. I’m going to do the second half with her this year.

    I also have a couple of events in the diary. It was three years ago on Christmas Day that I signed up for my very first run, The Cancer Research Winter Run 10k in London. Doing it again in February, and we are running the Hapalua half in Hawaii in April.

    Oh Hawaii, I flipping love it there. The humidity is murderous though...I ran there quite a lot this summer and I was dripping with sweat!
