Have to say that most of the articles published on this today are surprisingly well-balanced and asking the right questions instead of the typical RUNNING KILLS! that often come out after this kind of tragedy.

A lot of us push ourselves to the edge. Some fall over it. Claire got unlucky. Irregular heartbeat can wipe you out suddenly and can be sparked off by stimulants, amongst other things, like dehydration or exhaustion. I have no knowledge, I only speak from experience of AF which has wiped me out once in a race. I got lucky that time and mine reset itself.

She had done a mara before and had no reason to think she wouldn't again.

As for the journo, I think it was great and well thought out to actually do a bit of research on here. As for the rertorts, they may have been a bit over the top, but given the press well known distortion and limited reporting of the facts in general, I think any journo should get themselves a thicker hide. If the article was balanced though, fair play to them.

Dustboy there is little evidence she had an irregular heartbeat, it wasn't diagnosed by a doctor.

Anyway this thread has been bizarre. Not sure why Amelia Hill got such a pasting.

And David, man up and train for a bloody GFA place. You know absolutely nothing about the 30 people taken to hospital or how much they deserved the spot you clearly feel robbed of. As one of them I'd just like to add a big ranty, it's the internet so we can all be rude, fuck you.

I think people are too sensitive.  It's the internet - expect to get narked at.

Just caught up with this thread.

It used to be much more fun on these forums and yaers back this wouldn't even have been KK warming up.

Anyway if I could kiss her it would definitely be on her well toned arse xxx (and definitely would use my tongue)

What a great thread, took ages to trawl through! The gym video is superb; Thanks Big G  Where can we get this MDD shit from?

Just like the old days, start with serious debate and end up with a snog- athon

Wow, what a thread!

David, you're clearly trying to cultivate a bit of a quirky reputation for yourself, maybe you should look at how Sussex Runner does it for better effect eh?

A big, ironic thank you to the principal contributors to this forum thread.  You have portrayed runners to the wider community as angry, hysterical, ranting, obnoxious arseholes.

That Guardian journalist to whom you were so effortlessly offensive, wrote a piece that was a model of objective balance, honesty and sensitivity.  I'm not surprised that she was made to feel unwelcome here.  You should be ashamed.  I certainly will not be coming to this troll-domain for intelligent discussion in the future.

You were just passing through Peter, but you've summed up the worst bits of this thread to an absolute tee.

Some bits were funny and well reasoned though.
