Dear council jobsworth - what you said illogical, irrational and just plan stupid - in fact a big a load of rubbish as contained in the tip of which you are in charge. May you be ground down by your grinders, swept up by your sweepers, incinerated in your incinerator and with a bit of luck recycled as a something rather more useful - a dollop of horse shit for preference.
Slow or not shouldn't really be the point. The organisers should provide enough for all. They charge the same for walkers (for whom the original event was intended) as runners. As for the weather - I might have missed the sausage rolls but at least I caught the rain.
Waves back - will probably just do one day as I'm having major building work done which will last well into next year so only have weekends to straighten out mess and catch up on sleep (they arrive quite early).
