But has anyone asked whether DF3's split times have been checked.  To make sure he didn't take a short cut?

didn't need to worry about that when we saw the overall time.

DF3; If you want an easy distance to run try 3k. That's a fun distance, nothing like as scarry as 5k. for starters the pain will only last for a few minutes. 

Interested why you picked a 3k. If you race it well it's not an easy distance at all...

If you wanted a shorter distance, why not 800 or 1500?

How is any distance easy?  If it's easy you haven't tried hard enough.  Pain just comes in different forms.

Just entered another Marathon. Maybe I should enter DF3 as well

No it's because you have to endure the pain for less time.

Ahahahahahahahaha. Hahahahahahaha.

This is hilarious.

What utter bollocks. 

Everyone is being far too nice. 

Df3 - I won't congratulate you. You did shit. You didn't train, you took the piss out of others who did train and who posted about their training on forums designed to help them develop knowledge.. The only thing I agree with you about: nothing ??ou have done has been brave. Brave would be saying sorry to the people you take the piss out of and admitting you have been wrong. 

Being brave might also involve posting a photo of you 'completing' your race. now that would be amusing.

kaffeeg - I was working on the assumption that we were all being nice because he'd find that more annoying.

And DF3 - it's still an massive achievement and don't let anyone else tell you different.

so it was lovely weather........and the route was scenic.........you were so lucky......crawling the last 5 miles in the wind and rain through an industrial estate would have been more fitting........

you say it was really boring.nice weather and scenery and loads of time to enjoy your own company.........

I can see the weak link in the chain

Literatin - ahhhhh. I fear that that tactic might be a little too sophisticated for him, given  his brain has been replaced with an oversized and *slightly* unfounded ego, covered by a very thick layer of skin.

Kaffeeg - everything you say is correct.

It just seems like our DF3 wasnt cuddled enough - and might lighten up a little with a little feint praise for his 'efforts'.

You are right though - there are those who try hard and dont get a 'good' time and there are those who dont try at all and dont get a 'good' time. He's clearly the latter.

I cant believe Kaffee won't congratulate me.

Surely just crossing the finishing line is an achievement?

 

Was the finish line still there after so long ?

08/05/2013 at 09:15

Bored with Fetch already, DF3?  You can't have been trying hard enough.  Seems to be a running theme for you.

Yup finishing line was still there Dave

I watched it and told everyone who wanted to take it they could do it as df3 was still on his way.

Apparently 3 people finished behind me, 2 of them were old age pensioners and the other one had polio as a child.

I bet they are working on their 5k times as we speak to make sure it doesn't happen again

If I could be bothered I'd dig up the ancient post where DF3 says he would finish in the 'top half of any given field' and quote it properly.

Never diss old people. They're normally fantastic at marathons.

There's been so much unsubstantiated fluff I'm beginning to think he might actually be in breach of the Trade Descriptions Act

They were probably doing the ramble rather than the race too
