Races to Enter:
A quick heads up for a race that has just opened their entries for later in the year, the Colchester Half Marathon:
March the 11th - http://bit.ly/Colchester-half-marathon-2012
Last year was a very well received race - based out of the new football stadium at Colchester - with great facilities for pre and post race needs, this year the race will go down the very scenic high street in the middle of town - so expect some excellent crowds and support en-route if you go.
A bit before that on the 26th of February - is the Roding Valley Half Marathon
This race has gone from strength to strength each year - based at the Woodford Green AC track it has often been the Essex Half Marathon Championship race. This year is race number 30 - so get in there and make it a good marker for your London / Brighton Marathon Training.
In other news - Comet Hove are now over two weeks past their "48hrs resolution" on the 21st of december when a display docking station burnt my wifes iphone out. Not good enough Comet despite your phone calls to remind us how far behind you are, we won't be going there again, and nor I hope will you.
Park run in Hove is still going strong - attracting 440 runners last saturday (including myself for an ok 22:58 5k), but also of interest to some of you in Sussex is that there is now a new Park run in Eastbourne
starting on January the 28th...
Right - the G3 series for this saturday has been sold out, and my sister in law is running in it, so I'd better get a good shot of her hadn't I ?
Until next time, and happy training,
