    Who is this man that is half my age? And why does he have such a strange running style?

    Raymond, don't be too worried or intimidated by
    courses and geting lost etc. If you pick a race of no more than 10 miles you will get round - so long as you have the mental discipline to run slowly (don't try road race pace). Also, any popular race and there will be plenty of people to follow, short races are normaly marked or have marshals, and the field isn't too 'strung out'. Always someone in sight.
    Was down in Steyning just before Christmas (realations there) I used to run a race from there over the Downs many years ago. Went training over the course the other week - they've even painted the treee roots and stones white so people don't trip up
    Any damn fool can make money, show me someone who can make time.

    Re: Advice on first race.

    Just got confirmation that my entry has been accepted; so if you're going to be there look out for a slightly nervous/excited looking 40 something bloke wearing a black and orange Milton Keynes vest (if the weather's ok). I'll be the only one wearing one and a kind word would be much appreciated.

    Cheers - Raymond

    Will you be doing 3 Forts RH? If you are, let me know (hopefully I will be injury free and running by then) and we can meet at the start. I did a 1.34 last year and was the best race of last year apart from Snowdon. Would like to know how you got on with Edale Skyline as may want to do it next year. PM me...

    For the half! Was looking to do the full this year and think 3.21 is quite achievable (if I wasn't injured- damn this PF)

    Didn't know there was a 'half'. You are right 3:21 is definately acheivable as long as you stay on course - a few more marshalls wouldn't go amiss - still a good race.

    Good luck with your recovery.
