there seem to be permenantly threads up in various forums about finding running partners. is there anything RW could do to make this process easier? for example a new forum for this? or even better would be to do the same thing as you've got for the clubs - so we can enter our details and then you can search the database based on location and time/distance. what do you reccon?

Very good idea!

I'll second that. You could also use it to get in touch with other runners you see. There's one young woman, for example, I often see tonking up Swinnow Road in Pudsey, obviously training for something. She always wears a baseball cap, has longish blonde hair and is fast! Sometimes see her in the morning and sometimes at night so if you're out there, Hi!

When I said "get in touch" I meant "say hello"!!! I didnt mean in a "Would like to Meet" sort of way (when in a hole stop digging!). Damn! Mrs Chimp is going to kill me isnt she?

Chimp - you crack me up!!!!!

Moo moo, cheers. Heard nothing yet so I might have got away with it. Mind you, early days yet.

Methnks Mrs Chimp will be after you with the frying pan soon enough!!

PS what ARE you doing in the jungle there? Thinking you need a manicure? Or giving someone the finger? Or thumbing for a lift?

That's a great idea, Susannah. What about it, RW?

Counting my valuables following the last time I crossed Mrs Chimp.

I think its a good idea too Susannah. Soz for highjacking your thread.
23/10/2002 at 14:13
don't worry chimp - your ramblings amuse me no end!
hopefully RW will like the idea too!

My apologies as well Susannah. Think this is an excellent idea, I see so many runners round my way and am sure at least one of them must be reading runners world.

Lets be honest moo moo, they probably all read Runners World. Theres not a lot of competition is there? Seems my running up a hill lady doesnt though. So my idea was obviously pants. Hey-ho, time to go home and face the music.

boing

still no word from RW people on this?

I put a similar query in the 'bugs' forum, and heard nothing from RW either.

Perhaps we need to have a 'suggestions forum' first, and then when that's there we can put our thoughts there.

:-)

Susannah, Never mind. My running up a hill fast lady from Pudsey hasnt been in touch either. Ah well, some fell on stony ground.
