Busy? I almost managed not to see a single runner (bar those lying on stretchers!) Fortunatly no pirate spotting in our tent  

Set your tent up in the bar - that should do it.

spotted jolly roger 2 in the cafe prior to the start of today's Brian Robinson challenge, needless to say after 75 miles of horizontal rain we did not arrive at the finish at the same time , just happy to have got there and nice to bump in to the Northern contingent.....

Who was the pirate cycling North on the A23 at Salfords at lunchtime today? He didn't look as though he was enjoying life, but then again the hailstones probably weren't helping ...


That would have been me.  Hail wasn't great at all, although it didn't last long.  I think it was round about then I realised that the logical route home was up Reigate Hill and I was riding fixed.  If you thought I looked miserable you should have seen me 20 minutes later! 

Still, the outward leg to Rusper and around to Turners Hill had been great.

*Sniggers* Sadly I'm a terrible bargirl.  Been there. Done that. Dropped 12 glasses of champagne! 

Cougie- it's a pleasure. We get men who have temperatures that would be fatal in less than 30 mins. Instead we save their lives and end up discussing what marathon to do next! Very rewarding and makes a change from dealing with alcohol related probs (although the level if confusion and vomiting make it hard to tell the difference!)

Medic girl

Probably about the same as girls on a winters night on the Quayside in Newcastle - luckily they have a mini-skirt and crop top to keep the weather out.

I understand. I've been as far north as Wakefield on a Friday night (shudders). I'm not sure whether it was the legs or the snow that was whitest.

Ah, yes.

She was dressed in (near) civvies when I met her. I didn't know she'd been up for it.

I suppose that having the same surname as Crashie would give it away. Poor thing.

Over 40 - normal is 36.5-37.5. As one Dr kindly told the parents of a young chap: you are cooking your insides at that temperature. 

On the more cheery side: that's what water/ice/sponge stations are for Stay cool kids!
