Off to tart meself up and head for the Lunnon social.
Have a great weekend folks.

At least Jon won't need a beer.

I'm only bloody well pretending.

Actually, a pal has said it's actually ebola manifested in a cold, so there.

That was a remarkable recovery Jon!

Lucky you JJ-Have a good one (0;

Hi Benz, I'm sure your lecture was appreciated. Thanks for your words of support, btw.

JJ, as you do not appear to have a race on 14 November you could accompany us to the Bexhill 1/2. Whispers to Kermie "I think he's scared we might beat him".

Goslo, no-one will notice your bulges - they'll be too busy laughing at my spare tyre, which looks particularly fetching when clothed in lycra.

Caramac and Mystic Wind, good luck for the GNR. I'm sure you'll enjoy the day.

I wonder how LFW is getting on with his jungle marathon.

Jon, lest we forget you I've erected one of those lovely roadside shrines that you see so much of these days. Unfortunately, a passing dog has relieved himself on the flowers so they've wilted a bit. Oh and somebody has nicked the toy minky too. There's still the tasteful cross that I made out of some oak twigs. Oh dear, a tractor has just mounted the verge and flattened the whole lot. Never mind, hey!

Lucky the mention of Beer revived you Jon!

Hi Redhead-I can't believe'you know what' is nearly upon us!
24/09/2004 at 16:18
Goslo, DON'T. I keep wibbling and had to have a talking to from JJ and Meerkat last night! At least you've already done one marathon so you know what to expect - no, I take that back, that's probably scary too. I'm just so scared that my knee will pack in and I have to drop out. I haven't even begun to worry about all the other things that could happen! Oh, and the stupid baggage handlers at Gatwick are proposing another strike next Thursday so that will probably impact on our flight on Friday.

Iknow-the list is endless isn't it?
And yes-it is scary now I know!

I've had problems with my left calf and it's always in the back of my mind it could go at any time(as it has b4)
24/09/2004 at 16:37
Red - You are ready. Don't sweat the what-ifs and maybes. You will be fine. I thought your roadside memorial was tastefully done. Would you like to release your race number so we can check results? No prob if not.

Jon - IT'S A MIRACLE!!! Welcome back to the land of the living. Hey, you should celebrate. Why don't you run Brighton? There are several others who have already registered. Well, that's what the calendar says.

24/09/2004 at 16:51
Red-Don't take any notice of me-you are much fitter than I am.I haven't been able to do the longer runs and am only at Half-mara fitness ))0;
24/09/2004 at 17:11
JimC, thanks pet. My number is 662 and if you're checking the results then I'll be in the last few :-)

Goslo, I don't believe you. I bet you're one of those speedy whippets that sprint off up the hills whilst I waddle along ;-)
24/09/2004 at 17:16
I wish-this isn't a good area for hill work-and why do you think I call myself goslo . . . . . . ?

Evening all, at least those who're not guzzling at the social!

Good luck to all who are racing this weekend, and those who are training - run strong.

I've got a mountainous 10km tomorrow morning, well it's actually only about 9.8km but since it's all uphill it counts the same in my book. Going to try (yet again) to break an hour for it - hope springs eternal!
24/09/2004 at 19:20
D-b IW - Good luck! Hope all goes smoothly. Just keep moving, hopefully, UP! Have a nice weekend!
