DDBD Live Tracking

Tomorrow I attempt my first marathon distance run. Thankfully I’m not doing it alone. I have a good number of friends and family joining me for bits of the run (about 20 peeps if all goes well). I’m not sure if I’ll make it. Training has been going well but it’s a tough route including some big and long hills and finishes off with 8 miles of trail. It’s not a race though so I’m planning a slow pace. It should be fun and it’ll definitely finish with beer as this is how I have decided to celebrate my birthday!

You can view the route here on garmin connect and if things work out well you’ll be able to track our current position on the map below. Tracking will be available from about 9am which is when we hope to set off from Dorchester. Hopefully we’ll reach the finish line (The Cove Inn, Portland) at approx 2:15pm. You’ll need to refresh the page to be able to see updates. Links to mapping will also be posted to facebook and twitter tomorrow morning. Party start at 2pm at the finish line if you are in the neighbourhood.

Disco Birthday Bash (Finishing Line Party)

On the 1st September I’ll be one day into my 33rd year on this planet (yeegads! I still feel 15). I’m celebrating by running a marathon (as life is far too short to not give it a go). It’s a casual affair and I have some friends and family joining me for parts of the run. It should be a giggle (or very painful).

The run starts in Dorchester, goes through parts of Weymouth and concludes by running right around Portland. The finish line is pretty much at the Cove Inn on Portland with the wonderful views the beach has to offer. Where better to grab a pint and celebrate getting old? Please come along, cheer me over the line and and help me celebrate my birthday. Bring family, friends etc and make an afternoon of it. I should cross the line at roughly 14:15 if all goes to plan but I’d suggest arriving by 14:00 (2pm in old money).

(more details about the run here. It’s not to late to join in the running – just message me -> http://rundiscorun.com/2012/06/discos-daring-birthday-dash/ )
