That's what we likeGreat one LB
Here's one made for you LB
I'll get the plates!
Had a good run today but my big toenail has come off, so it's not that attractive at all! Got hassled by 2 old biddies telling me to go faster!
My secretary (my dad) got back to me about the jacket, they're all between 35-38 quid but i've got to add postage to italy and that's a tenner which is a lot when it's supposed to be "featherlite". Will keep you informed.
LB- speaking out of personal experience-my parents sent me 18 miles away to school to Bradford Girls Grammar School rather than the local high school, they gave up a lot to send me there and i really appreciate it. If you want to work hard, you can succeed anywhere but I had fabulous facilities as in labs, sports equipment, choice of subjects etc As long as little LB's happy.
You are all very nice and friendly and I feel a lot less homesick already
VR - I'm pleased to hear your feet are OK, are you wearing your noo shoos on Sunday?
htf - when Mr Bump is back to full fitness again I'm sure he will offer to pace you round a race to your first sub 2 hour half, he did that for PSC. Too fast for me, but it is one of my distant goals too, of course it would help if I ran a half marathon now and then, haven't run one for years.
Flossie - VR has to go back to NF some time to slay that particular dragon and I will be back too probably next year depending on the date
Enrico - keep up with the good hill training. I must do some hill training too as I have a very hilly marathon in November.
LB - I hope you've had a lovely day and been spoilt with pressies. Great finishing pic, a discreet crossing of the line as I would expect from you
Mr Bump - hope you're OK and recovering well, if you get a moment let us know you're OK
Off to check the forecast for Loch Ness again

Discreet is my middle name! Oh no - hang on.... it's Jane
I have spoken with Mr Bump and he's back in the land of living and Facebooking but I think he's very sleepy bless him! Anaesthetics are funny things....
Mrs Bump is taking good care of him too!
VR - Oh no can't have your feet getting sore again.
LB - thanks for cake, was kind of you. Glad to hear Mr Bump is doing OK, we miss him.
Shades - I was thinking that marathon HY mentioned sounded good - though a bit far away - but you reckon not for us beginners! Will have to think up some new things for next year.
Sad to hear about train crash on the line up to here yesterday, three people in a car hit by train at an unmarked level crossing. Grim.
Happy birthday. Hope you've had a good day so far. Great photos.
Thanks for the suggestion. I've just tried to find something out about it but haven't been able to. Is it a new event & where is it?
I'm not sure. I was thinking South Downs or Stratford, however I'm not really sure at the mo, especially with what Shades has posted about South Downs.
Liverpool scouts were scouring the world for new talent when they came across a young Iraqi lad with bags of skill. They decided to bring him to England and give him a trial. He did well in a couple of reserve games so they put him on the bench for a European game. He came on as sub and had a storming game, ran the opposition defence ragged and scored a hat trick. He was carried off to a standing ovation.
He decided to phone his family to tell them the great news. His Mum answered the phone and after he told her how he got on, he asked how everyone was.
“Not too good son“, his mum said. “Your father has been killed in a gun battle, your sister has been brutally assaulted, and the house has been fire bombed “… what on earth were you thinking of, bringing us all to Liverpool in the first place!!
LB, Happy Birthday and great photos
VR, have you got new orthotics? Sorry I've fallen behind with the updates on here
Molly, I've got a Montane featherlite jacket. Its fab and amazingly warm if it needs to be.
SiJ, I get grumpy when I don't run. Hope you get back out soon.
Just done a 3 mile 'recovery' run - better late than never! 23.49, oops Off to consult my 'Chihuahua for dummies' book - Alfie won't stop barking at the curtains in the spare room?!
