tempted but don't really want to commit to anything early next year as I'm thinking of taking a long trip somewhere sometime

I will however be doing bedford in just over a month if anyone fancies it

Yeah, I'm signed up.  £15, and it's a very well run half.  Course is flat and well marshalled,l with lots of drinks stations, etc.  Good for spectators too.  Course does get crowded though, as there are lots of runners - so although it's flat and conducive to a good time, you also have to run a little bit further to get round people.

Very nice!

Might have a go at one of these.

You guys were right, the treadmill is a bit wank compared to being out side, but out side is cold and shit.

Went out yesterday morning, was about 4 or 5°C - perfect weather to run, in fact maybe a little cooler would be better.  Once you get going you soon warm up.

Not when you're running!  Hypothetically speaking of course.

I have some running gloves, and when it's below freezing I do tend to start a run with them on (as I suffer with my hands when it's cold), but usually after quarter of an hour or so, I end up taking them off when they get too warm.

Maybe some like these would be 'better' http://www.terra-nova.co.uk/Activity/Running/Ultra_Glo_Glove_Yellow_Small.html
