TB - I emailed you the other day. Did you receive it?
As a follow up to your obituary (!!) I have to concur that it's a really sad state of affairs that nobody uses the WBSC any longer. Everyone seems to have been taken in by the bollocks that Facebook is - everyone must be so keen to find out what their friends are having for tea, how their commutes to work have been etc,etc...
What happened to the good old days?
As it appears this thread is finally over, then I thought I'd put my final offerings down, not that anyone will ever read them, so who gives a shit!!
Jonah - the machine. His BG absolutely inspired me to where I am today and what my goals are over the next 2 years. Without Jonah then we would not be the fell running athletics club that the Harriers are..... although, I have now resigned and now a fully paid up member of Dark Peak Fell Runners!
GBM - My bestest running mate who will have to go through everything I'm going through over the next 2 years.
The rest of you, you know who you are. Every single one of you has been a huge impact on me as a person and my running.
I remember back in 2005 when we turned up at Disley Station car park (when the guy with the bike was most likely in his female friend's car!!) for our first training run for the London marathon. I'd turned up slightly early so I could have a cigarette - what a dick!! The week after I gave up my horrible social habit and I've not had one since.
We've had so many fun times with our road races, Stockport 10 organisation and BG attempts.
The above has to be balanced with the many friends we have that have suffered losses or are currently going through troubling times.
PPP - you may also want to run this Sunday. We're starting from Rose Hill at 7am and running to Edale using the Bullock route, so 18 miles in total. The plan is to get the 10.52am train back to Marple. GBM is leaving his car at Marple and running to Rose Hill for the 7am start. The pace will be nice and steady but always with an eye on the watch! 3.52 should be quite sufficient time!
