they give out prizes to the race winners..........so it doesn't matter how fast or slow you were........if you weren't good enough to the prizes you only deserve the same crap finishers medal........

Its kind of funny to think the 4th guy in a race gets the same crap as the 16,765th person in the race.

Still its all about aspiring to the top. Thats the reason I have a picture of RicF on my bedroom wall, and the day I put it on there, my 6 year old son wandered in and said 'Daddy who is that?' ......and I replied 'That son, is who I hope to be one day ....... one day son.'

Be careful what you wish for.

Your PB will still stand, don't worry they don't go out of date At least I hope not! I last ran a HM in 2011 but it's still my PB.

Sex during the race could slow you down.
