I got my consolation training top of disappointment on Tuesday. Shame - I really have tried an awful lot to get into the London Marathon. I'm beginning to thing GFA is the "easier" way.

Allegedly, if you log in to the realbuzz registrations site and it shows a bib number then you have a place. Not sure if this is the case as I've not got a bib number myself, but, you know, internet r ...

Buy books about running, tri etc.

The Fenix 1 doesn't have actual mapping does it? Just "breadcrumb" navigation I thought.

Sounds like standard Garmin battery #@?#. I have a fenix 1, bought for the alleged 50 hour battery life, only to discover it's pretty much impossible to obtain. In the end, I have resorted to usin ...

imagine my delight when I went out for my first ever flat out parkrun effort and nicked a parkrun pb of 20.39. The game is truly on for 2017, once I get my A race out of the way.

Good luck, are you not a member of a running club that gets places for members?

No - having a young-un means I'd rarely actually attend club training or events, so one of the main motivatio ...
