Cowart's Common Room

Since I'm supposed to be running the LLanelli half marathon later on this morning I thought I'd better check the site..... aaargh! Today's 'STOP PRESS' is for 'cold, wet and VERY windy weather'. Noooooooooo! I am doomed! Why did I think this was a good idea??

Brave Chris. Or is it Foolhardy Chris? Good Luck. Are you running for charity or just for fun? er, do people run half marathons for fun?

If we haven't heard from you by tonight, do we come and look for you?

Preseli Mags's Avatar It's cold. It's raining. It's windy. The race starts at 11.30am. This woman is tough (or mad!)

But I'm sure a few strong, powerful and warm purple thoughts will help too.

Fennie's Avatar Chris, I have no sympathy for you whatsoever. You choose this running malarkey and it's not as though you go in for indoor events. Running is horrible, horrible, horrible - stop punishing yourself! The only thing you can say that is remotely pleasurable is when it stops. (I've just finished Matthew Parris autobiography, by the way. He is (or was) another runner - holds the marathon record for an MP. He tries to explain why in his book, but it's all just pain, pain, pain. Why?)
But, all the same, hope you had good luck and a big hug to you - mad person!

Frances's Avatar Best wishes for a safe run, Chris. I am a bit like Fennie in my view of the idea of a marathon, but I know how much running does mean to you.

May you cross that finish line and be happy! xo

Arosebyanyothername's Avatar I'm in the warm. I'm in the dry. I'm sitting down watching Crufts and that's where I'm going to stay.
But Good Luck ChrisH you mad thing!

After the first 5 miles, you won't notice a thing! Hope it goes well!

Westerwitch's Avatar Good grief - will get Matron to make up a cosy bed in the San for when you get back - better light the fire as well and fill the bed with hot water bottles.

Snowing here and berludy cold - so do hope the weather is a bit kinder to you.
