Bo Bo

Dartford was not too bad, I knew in advance I would not be PB ing it but I did manage negative splits, which is highly unusual for me. Also, the ankle held up well which was good. I also met Scotty who has been in several of the same Forums as me which was quite a coincidence.

well run Bill - glad to hear the ankle didn't cause you any further trouble. Looking forward to seeing you next Sunday - it will be my first outing in a certain blue top .

Right can't put off any longer - need to get out the door before the headtorch is required!

good one CB...... Bobo just back!  Pitch black up here on the downs!  Yes, the PSC Clan marshalling expertese is going to be shared between Ashford Tri CLub and TRRAC is seems!  Should work out pretty well I think.  We need to compete with the Foster clan who seem to marshal every event going

Enjoy - sounds like you've earned it.  You are about 30 mins ahead of us........ Just putting the spuds in the oven now!!

I've just finished mine. We have ours earlier now so that one of us can watch Prancing on Ice. Guess which of us that is! I sent my entry for the 20 in online.

I've spent the weekend enduring The Sound of Music and to put the icing on the cake I come home and find out that I have been awarded a bronze. medal for walking around the coastline of Thanet my first ever running medal, other than for just finishing!!!!!!

I would like to thank my sponsors, Nike, my coach and all of the people who have wholeheartedly supported me through the years. And finally I would like to thank the public who poured out onto the streets of Thanet in their handfuls to ask, what the heck are you doing out here on this fine September day? Particularly the aged woman at Palm Bay who questioned my sanity. For all of my adoring fans I hope to come back stronger and faster in 2008 and finish in exactly the same place as last year.

Thank you TRAC for this fine accolade

LOL - is that a good thing or a bad thing....   We had a lovely time - we were purposely a bit low key - no point rushing around making fools of ourselves when we are hardly known by the majority - thanks for looking after us!!

Fans of Thanet send healing thoughts to Paula B - went down a pothole last night and did her ankle.  Hospital not sure if broken or ligament tear.

ouch... hope recovery is swift!
22/01/2008 at 13:40

Poor Paula sending hopes for a speedy recovery

CF  about our planned little jaunt around Thanit do you want to go this coming weekend or the following ?

22/01/2008 at 13:57

MF7 - the choice is yours! You have to realise that with my new found fame as the third fastest Vet 40 marathon runner in Thanet,  we will probably be tailed by groupies and the paparazzi. Sunday is the easiest day for me this weekend and next due to my hectic social life (otherwise known as taxi duty). Let me know

Good luck with the recovery Paula

 CF I was thinking about making it a Sat morning ? so I can run again on the Sunday ( Dont start PSC)  

I know Bo-Bo cant make it this week , Canterbury 10 I think, but is a possible for the next Sat and Sam is ok, well last time I spoke to her, for either.? 

Also I'm thinking an early Saturday morning start would mean we, or really you, are less likely to be spotted by your groupies as they will all be heading to westward cross on a Saturday And the sporting paparazzi would all be heading To Ramsgate or Margate for the Footie (if thats what they play there)

PSC  have printed the entry form for the Ashford Dualthlon Looks good date wise so I am thinking I might just give it a go.  Only one question is it gonna be mostly those ultra skinny super fit TRI types taking part ? I dont mind coming last but dont really want to be overtaken by a bike while im still out running my first lap.   The current Mrs F has said she could probably Marshall if you need her.?

Sharon and Mark, baby Thomas says thank you very much for the lovely card and the bib, its really funky and cute.......

Mark, don't panic, you won't be last as I will be there! It was a small field last year (50) but the spread of times was wide! If Mrs F is up for marshalling I am sure we could use her. Massive thx for that.
