Come one, come all; everyone welcome on this year long build up to the GNR
Well done, mr sj. I hope the knee isn't aggravated tomorrow.
I think the prize was an age category thing. I even got a mention in the Shields Gazette tonight about it (admittedly it was a miniscule mention, and they did spell my name wrong, but whatever).
Shielsy - a miniscule mention in an article in the paper is much better than just appearing in the "list of finishers". I still like to get the papers with the list of finishers and send it to my Dad to say "look, I made the news!". Well done on your 3rd place. I see the race got a mention in the BBC News web page for the false start.
Also, well done on your club session, sounds hard.
Vixx - sorry that your op has had to be delayed. It's better to wait and have a completely successful op than one that you end up not really happy with in the end.
Mr SJ - excellent race there. Hope the knee is not grumbling too much today.
Snoopy - How is Cooper getting on? I hate it when people let their aggressive dogs off the lead and so don't control them properly.
Mandie - How is Bobbi getting on too? I'm presumimg that no news is good news.
I was Volunteer Coordinator at parkrun last weekend and then I helped to enter the results after as I am getting shown more of the "responsible" tasks at parkrun. Our pregnant parkrunner turned up but did not run and later on that night she had a boy. I had a quick chat and she did joke that if she did run and it bounced out, she'd just scoop it up and carry on!I might have to pop out at lunch for a run as I've got a flat 10K race this Sunday and I need to test my knee over about 5 miles before I commit to going to the race. It will only be my second run since the end of September when I picked up the injury.
Did someone speak?
Well done on you race mr sj
Shielsy - I enjoy being educated by the fairer sex Cant image anyone enjoying the feeder thing - hey ho - whatever pleases !
Ps - was the custard tart nice ?
mr sj - well done mate on the race
Why am I up at past 11pm on a schoold night ? I am knackered but cant sleep, whats that all about ?
Think so Vixx - you too ?
Now O know so - still awake & have a long day ahead
Bob - how did the 5 mile test run go? Hope it went well and you're fit for Sunday.
Shrek - the custard tart was lovely - I could eat another one now.
spongecake - really hope you are on the mend.
mr sj - how was the knee after your club race?
Is anyone doing the Saltwell 10k on 22nd December? I really want to do it - it's a tough one, but a nice way of kind of justifying over indulgence with your Christmas dinner. Trouble is I've a feeling I'll be panicking about things I haven't done in preparation for Christmas and will feel I have to miss the race to paint a room, or something.
Luton Marathon on Sunday - just got over chest infection in time - short 3 mile jog tonight then race on Sunday

Im not doing saltwell, did it about 3 years go and hated every second of it ! Swore i'd never do it again
Great to hear you're ok - don't overdue it at the club though (if you go). Lol, yeah, I half hated/half loved Saltwell when I did it years ago - all those hills - but the year I ran it the park looked so pretty (bright sunshine but frost everywhere) that it really got me into the Christmas spirit.
I'm probably doing Saltwell. Never done it before though. The hills are a plus as I can forget about PBs and all that stuff and just run as I feel on the day to enjoy it.
I did 23m 54s at the NSP Grand Prix on Tuesday so quite pleased with that, especially with the headwind going out. Looking forward to the cross-country on Saturday.
