10 December 2006 - Swanley 4.2 miles Christmas Capper

Hi guys, just to let you know that, Abbie Jacobs (the Mrs!), Amy Smith, Kate Pratten, Clare Logwig, Rhiannon Lloyd and Ramon Siaz all took part in the race on Sunday the 10/12/06.

The turkey is now in its rightful place, in my freezer! I won the race for the second year in a row in 22.25, 1st mile 4.48, 2 miles in 10.05, 3 miles in 15.30 and 4 miles in 20.25.

The field was over 500 and next home for B&BHAC was Amy Smith in 14th, Kate Pratten in 79th, Clare Lodwig in 81st, Rhiannon Lloyd in 112th, Ramon Saiz in 214th and Abbie Jacobs in 287th (not bad for a sprinter and taking nearly 2 mins off her only previous attempt in 2003, shows that training with Gordon Cooper's training group is paying off).

Here is a link to the results http://www.swanleyanddistrictac.org/sdac/misc_forms/christmascaper2006results.pdf

5 November 2006 - ING New York City Marathon

RACE DAY ARRIVES

- a personal account by Mike Salmon -

Eyes half open I peer out from under the duvet anticipating the alarm will ring on my mobile phone, set to wake me at 04.35 hours, the extra 5 minutes of sleep seemed important to me when I set it the night before.

After crawling out from bed and quickly throwing on my four layers laid out in the bathroom, I made sure all the important items were packed in my backpack including Vaseline (vital for long runs) energy drinks, hat and gloves.

We all (Children with Leukaemia charity runners) met at the Millennium Broadway Hotel on 44th Street and congregated in the Hudson Theatre next door before being led in convoy to 42nd Street to board the coaches taking us to Staten Island.

We were channelled into the “Disney like” queues in readiness to board the coaches taking us to Staten Island. The queues were routed along 42nd Street, eventually spilling out onto 5th Avenue where the coaches were lined up bumper to bumper ready to take us to Staten Island.

For many years due to the unique nature of the start of the course, the ING New York City Marathon has had to restrict the number of entries. This year a record number applied for entry – more than 90,000 – from this number, marathon officials allowed approximately 37,000 entries into the field.

The catch phrase for the ING NYC Marathon this year was “one race, 37,000 stories”. Let me try to give you an insight into part of the overall experience. We arrived at Staten Island at about 06.05am and therefore were faced with a four hour wait until the start of the race. The early start is necessary to allow the authorities to close all roads and bridges to traffic along the route by 07.00 hours. Upon arrival on Staten Island we stepped from the coach into the cool but bright sunny morning.

The three starting groups (red, blue, green) were spread across two fields and two massive car parks at Fort Wadsworth. I managed to find a table to rest my limbs and avoid the damp grass. During the four hour wait much liquid was taken on board by all runners and subsequently the pre-race port-a-loos were well used by all 31,000 runners.

By the time we were called forward into the starting groups, I looked back to see an almost complete covering of discarded clothing of various types over the two fields and massive car parks.

The gun went and we edged forward to the sound of “New York, New York”. This is the best tour of New York City you could possibly get. Running through the five boroughs, Staten Island: pre race butterflies, Brooklyn: climbing up Pulaski Bridge and reaching the half way mark, Queens: the pain of running up and over Queensboro Bridge; reaching Manhattan for the first time and running up 1st Avenue from 59th Street to 144th Street and then on to the Bronx: hitting the wall at 20 miles, oxygen starved and burning fat, leaving the Bronx onto Manhattan, muscles are screaming and stomach wanting to wrench, the last 4.2 miles and Central Park is in sight.

The crowds are amazing and onto the roar of the crowd down 5th Avenue onto 59th Street and along south edge of Central Park to the finish line on the west side near 7th Avenue.

My overall finishing place was 6,558 out of 31,000 finishers. For my age group I was in 177th place. All in all a fantastic experience despite the pain of hitting the wall at 20 miles. The organisers recorded my 5km split times as 22 min 0-5km, 23 mins 5-10 km, 24 mins 10-15 km, 24 mins 15-20km, 26 mins 20-25km, 26 mins 25-30km. After hitting the wall my last 10km was much slower at 63 minutes. Overall finishing time 3 hours, 41 mins.

Crossing the finishing line, I staggered slightly only to be propped up by the arms of a friendly lady medic who walked me through the final processes of getting the medal and photograph, finally having my chip removed from my running shoe.

A long walk to baggage pick-up between 72nd and 85th Streets and my UPS lorry was number 58 out of 72. This was my only complaint after what had been a memorable day never to be forgotten.

Finding a place on the footpath to sit on my foil blanket and get into a change of clothes, every movement sending a message to the brain from the muscles – avoid spasm and cramps!

As I get into my Blackheath & Bromley Harriers AC tracksuit, I feel snug again and pulling my medal over my head, I set off to find my family and friends. Along the way I am constantly greeted by the crowds saying “Congratulations” and “Great Job”

The best tour of New York City you can possibly get! What a great day !!

The ERRA National Relays at Sutton Park, Birmingham on Sunday 22 October 2006

Girls and boys event report.

Despite the highest position for the club the U15 girls ‘A’ team were disappointed. Blame was put on the team manager for ensuring that they were asleep by midnight. After an entertaining coach trip the 12 boys and 9 girls settled well in thier 49 seated coach with grumpy from the seven dwarfs as the driver. Grumpy did well making it to Birmingham but had great difficulty finding anywhere that was not on the motorway. After a long dinner for the adults the majority youngsters managed to find themselves in the swimming pool for a quick dip.

The evening was spent in and out of each others rooms until a nasty smelly chemical incident occurred outside one of the girl’s bedrooms. The smell which brought me back to bygone years greeted me when I got out of the lift on the 5th floor. The B&B youngsters sought safety all in one bedroom which reminded me of a parable from the bible. After little detective work I tracked down the stink bomber of old Birmingham town and confiscated his large arsenal of devices. Some of the girls fearing further attacks in the night laid wet towels at the bottom of the door as per the chemical attack safety manual. I was asked how detection was made by Angels ‘Watson’ Cook. Simple my dear Watson I replied he was the only one not in the room and the booty was sticking out of his bag.

All on race day were thankful for one of the clubs unsung heroes John ‘The tent’ Robinson. He got so carried away with his tent pegs he had to be retrieved from two tents away hammering in a line of pegs on every tent that got in his way. Cameron Ward who ran the last leg of the day in torrential rain returned to the tent which by that time had no sides or roof. The journey back was made with much singing and merry making by the youngster to the obvious delight of grumpy. The B&B youngsters managed to thank all the adults who helped by singing thier praises, including head of Active Athletics, who picked up the title of Pat ‘The Cameraman’ Calnan. My thanks to all concerned and for the youngsters for a large outbreak of team spirit.

Well done to all those that competed on Saturday at the National 12 Stage Road Relays in Birmingham. We had a very young team (and that includes you Dave!!) which performed well at their first championship.
