Having just looked at last years Reading half results, to be in the top half you only have to run 2:08:20, So not the biggest challenge

Not quite sure what the 12 people who took over 4 hours were doing ? Stooped for a pie & pint ?

Err I had a pint of guinness and a doughnut half way through the marathon on an Ironman last year !

 So hardly impressed with people having a pint on a half marathon

I don't really care DF3, So long as you are happy with a T shirt and a tacky medal

The beer at Reading isn't a pint, it's a plastic vending cup full.

Ha, brilliant. Perhaps they'll print the runner's cock length and current account balance on the shirt too.

I have a dream, that one day people will not be judged by the content of their character, but by the colour of their shirt (and the length of their cock and amount of money in the bank).

Tacky......

At least at last years Outlaw  Mr & Mrs Cake passed me a proper glass of guinness and a box of Krispy Kremes to take my pick form

And as a "hasher" I once had a pint of Newky Brown at half way on a GNR and still got in under 2 hours...........

Hmm I'm not a runner I'm an alcoholic with a running problem
