Hello!
We're new here after google suggested you. I'll click on the odd advert so you make some money:happy:
We're Ryan and Mel - and fortunate to be just starting to take some time out.

Shameless plug ;) doyourdream.co.uk

We plan to travel Europe and would love to do a race in each country if we can find one. (A race that is, we know where most of the countries are ;)) We find some races give you good routes which you'd not otherwise see.

We do 10k, 10m and 1/2m races. Train together, but race separately. (Except once when I was ill and so ran with Mel.:love:... never again!:lol:)

We will never win a race, but we do race against PBs and seem to be improving.

Anyway - bored you enough.

Our moto: You are only alive once - ENJOY IT WHILE YOU CAN!:idea:

Cheers. Too hot today. Have to get up early tomorrow and find a shady run!
Thanks for taking time to reply. (PS - hope the link to our dream site is okay - I tried to do a proper link but forum code stopped me for being so new).

Welcome!
Thats a great idea about travelling and taking part in races in each country, would make a great blog / online story. Please keep us updated with your travels :)

There is a great blog for running built in to this forum, just click on the 'Other' link at the top of the screen.

O.

Cheers!
We'll be blogging and documenting the trip and trying to encourage others to do their dream ( doyourdream.co.uk ). We are so looking forward to it!

Though just did a 10m run today - blimey. Think we'll avoid races in the hot climates!!!

Hot isn't it :d

Just out of interest, considering you will be blogging from round the world. Your sites formatting goes to pot when viewed on an iPhone and is unreadable. I like your concept though and look forward to following your progress.

BTW why not put a link in your signature to save typing it into your posts.

interesting idea guys..

I'm hoping to be made redundant on Tuesday and was thinking of taking my car to Italy for a few weeks.. yet to explain this to my girl tho. ahem. she doesn't like the car so won't be coming.

fingers crossed and it's good to see people seeing the light and exiting the corporate crap many of us are stuck/obsessed with

Hi ryanandmel, welcome to the forum! You sound like quite the 'happy go lucky' pair, you'll be a great addition to the forum :d

As for the link, no problems at all... I believe the forum software is set to only allow links after a certain number of posts - this is to discourage people signing up for no reason other than plugging their own business without contributing anything. Being a discussion forum it's always a lot nicer if people share their questions, thoughts, personal experiences and advice for all to see :)

Feel free to add a link to your signature, then it'll appear each time you post ;)

Welcome guys (or should that be girl/guy. I'm no good at this PC tosh).

How do you plan on doing the races? Flying out and back again between races or going from country to country consecutively?

Thanks for the welcomes.
We'll be going out for a 6 week trip; home for 2 weeks; then back out. So for this Amsterdam half we'll be in the area, camp in Amsterdam for a few days, then move on. After holland, then spain then home.
Then after washing and repairs, off to Spain then portgugal then home.
Then no idea!
Planned for long enough to get this far - so we'll see how it goes! May well decide locations based on things we want to do and see - so if there is a race we want we'll try and hit it.
Hopefully we'll try to get to marathon distance - no excuses now!

We're not that "go lucky" - this trip was a surprise to everyone (except us!).

But as mentioned above - make the most of opportunities!!!
