Well done to the Grindlefordians yesterday, most of whom had a far better day out than I did - it was a horror show for me! Still that's hopefully one duff performance out of the way!
Also, for info, my Skyline entry has been taken now...
J O - best bet is Daz,sounds like his sort of thing
Well done all runners this weekend !

Well done Grindlers!
I thought that the MWW was a bit quiet as I jogged from my long run. It was a bit tasty over Bowstones with a nice little blizzard.
23 miles done and hopefully at VLM I won't have done XC the day before.
Some great Stockport runs at Intercounties - Steve V 2nd, Elle 2nd and Katy Whiteoak an amazing 2nd too. Me and NI were a little further back
Mort - No it was actually J8 that won the prize not JS. Sums up my day - I even cocked-up the race report !
Well done XC'rs and anyone who got out of bed in time to run Trafford .
Glad to win th V60 prize even if i didn't do the race.
Er, who did win it?
Jane-O - TST is correct , I've done the Leaden Boot (and morticia made it as far as the first ice-cream van!) - it's a great route, v.similar in character to the Dovedale Dipper only shifted southwards - very much recommended, but I think it fills up, so best to get your entry in sooner rather than later
NI - the appearance money didn't last past 3pm - went on hoodies and sausage barms for the mini-Bobs .
If you look on the Fetch race summary for the Intercounties you can see that NI made somebody's star scalp http://www.fetcheveryone.com/viewracedetails.php?id=82126
The course was pretty good really although it must have been nearly a mile short - and I really needed that mile to chase down a few more youngsters.
RB - I am on the lookout for a Wilmslow number. Can you help?
Off to Stepping Hill to get wired up for 24 hrs, going to go out for a run later with it on, that should throw um
I thought you said Wilmslow vest for a moment.
There is one going on the Bramhall parkrun facebook page.

Otherwise you could try emailing Malcolm on email@example.com and ask him nicely - blag that you are going to run sub 1.20 and/or are crucial Stockport team counter might work.
Best of luck J8.
There is nothing too significant to report about Trafford. There was a biting wind in some exposed parts, and a bit congested at the start - I should have got closer to the front. My time (35:22) was, I think, my second fastest for 10k but I thought I might have got closer to 35:00 - but don't we always think we can go faster.
I was unfortunate that the countries top and fifth placed V50s both decided to travel to run this race, and I finished 3rd in category. Funnily enough had I still been a V45 I would have been 2nd!
I don't think I can keep this high mileage diet going any longer. Feeling tired and bored of it. Possible I have overtrained.
