reverse the Status Quo:O)
Morning, it's wet. We are back to normal
Running interferes with my golf LWJ, golf is my main interest.
I do like to run, just not a long way !!
Tried golf, about 15 years ago. Tried and tried for a few months. I have the wrong temperament! Shame really, I can see that it could be very relaxing way to exercise.
I prefer long distances. Would sooner run a Half Marathon than a 10k. I always feel i have to run faster in 10k's. I haven't cracked the sub 60 yet for a 10k.
5k parkruns kill me cos i have to go twice as fast
Yes i know
Canute interupted whilst i was speaking

That's pretty much what I've been through, always trying for PBs, running 10Ks at full tilt, throwing up over the line, to knock 7 seconds off a PB. There comes a point when you can't go faster, then you get older. That's how I moved up through the distances. Now I don't worry about times, I just look for scenery or a good experience, somewhere I haven't been, or somewhere I like, or something a bit different.
That's what i do Canute. Last year i did Southend on Sea Half. It was up and down the seafront 4 times. Great pb course but i hated it and ended up walking by mile 8. Have since done Bristol and Cardiff and loved them because of the scenery.
When i did Paris marathon i stopped for refreshments at two red wine stations
I missed the white wine station - somehow
I think I would really struggle, boozing on the run. It's hard enough having a couple of beers during my weekend walks!

Blackpool Marathon was my first (on it's old course... the new course looks worse). Like you say about Southend, mile after mile on the seafront, throw in some wind, half the run WILL be into the wind. Plus the joy of the left over Saturday night revellers, wandering out of thier B & B s and in front of the runners eating chips/burgers and making stupid comments. The mess and litter in Blackpool on a Sunday morning is not nice. Then there's the strange block with the huge snake... I really don't like snakes!
you get wine in races, that's just asking for trouble
Today it's back to typical monday morning weather, brolly please

It was after the 20 mile point. My legs had gone by then anyway so i just thought i may as well numb my head too.
You're asking us to believe you waited til you had done 20 miles LWJ
