Eastbourne Half? I'm in!

Thanks to @benwill for the link in an earlier post - I was umming and ahhing about which half marathon to sign up for to get me motivated again, and clicked on the link and had a look.

Then this weekend I went to a party in Bradford and met someone who I hadn't seen for 20 years or so, who happens to live in Eastbourne! So, an opportunity to see her again before another 20 years goes by - I have signed up, and we will go and spend the weekend by the sea.

Anybody else doing it?

Well done you! Hope you have a great time training and even better time visiting your friend for the race weekend.

Yay! I think it was me Ben gave the link to, but I've decided not to do any halfs this year (going to make up for it with 5 and 10 ks). Good luck and have fun!

Good luck for Bath. My training has been a bit lack lustre lately, because I seem to need a goal to get me motivated. So I have been running, but not that far, and not that focussed. I have 8 weeks to get back in gear! I am not looking at getting a PB, but it will be fun to run somewhere different!

I don't think so benwill! Number one - I said I would never do another marathon after last year and so far I haven't changed my mind and number two- if I did it would not be one which goes up and down to the extremes of the Beachy Head one!

haha i also wont do another marathon as the training takes up way to much time, unless i ever get into London (never then!)

I might just do the 10k Beachy Head one shame that would be hard enough.

but must email the inlaws about the dates for eastbourne half
