Maybe they just opened the bag and saw the sweaty clothes and dumped them.
You may be lucky and find them in a bin close by, bad luck on the timing though.
That's what I was thinking...My car got broken into and all my kit was taken when they realised there was no money in the bag it was dumped and found locally...I got all my stuff back..
Who steals a gym bag anyway? What do they expect to find inside?
I've left my phone no with the guys in the pub but I doubt it's going to turn up...
Same here, had my swim bag stolen, it was found in a hedge nearby but they'd taken my engagement ring and purse.
Hope you get your stuff back.
Have they got cctv at the pub?
most do these days.
Cinders- engagement ring... ouch! That's really bad.
Grumlethegoat- no cctv, I did ask.
Anyway, it's done now. Will just have to try to replace what I can before the marathon...
Sorry this has happened to you but you should have been more careful.
I'd never leave anything of worth unattended.
I hear people even steal music and films. It's really got out of hand.
Mon - do you have home insurance you could claim on for replacements? It won't get your run data back but it might mean not having to shell out too much.
Also, I picked up a 205 for my B-i-L for under £90 on Amazon last month.
Anyway, what a horrible thing to have happened. xx

d2d - wow!!! You are so unsympathetic.
I said sorry her kit got stolen - I can empathise - we've all had things stolen.
The reality of the matter though is that you shouldn't have left it unattended. The thief didn't know what was in that bag.. so they took their chances thinking there may be something of worth - which there was.
Have a look round on eBay - you can pick up some decent stuff there for cheap.
At least you'll be more cautious in future and it probably won't happen again.
