Did I startle you? My apologies, I thought that you could hear everything around you with the ipod volume set so low. Personally I think "runner coming through on your right" is self explanatory. Clearly not judging by the way you jumped as I came past....
well managed to chalk up nearly an hour down towards Canary Wharf. Legs feeling it a bit but Thursday/Friday usually light days. 40 - not a streak by design, and some of those days were easy 2-3 miles with the U11s. Usually lose a day at the weekends due to kids sport/officiating but have manged to run the past few weeks. Ale - I can either post when I get up (before 5) or when I get to work (after 7). Don't have one of those things that let you post 'on the go'. Besides the train to work is for reading the paper (or sleeping!)
There is also the argument that if a martshall pulls you out of a race for being wired up, there is nothing to stop you running on, unless of course the roads are reserved solely for the race and barred for pedestrians. The same applies to the sportive. Unless the road is explicity closed for the event, can they stop me carrying on? BTW my point with that Gregry was that the 'rule' is implemented for my safety. Never mind the fact that I can cycle to my hearts content at all other times lid-less.
As for elbowing & pushing. Don't ever get caught in the pack at the bell in a track race, or box someone in with 200 to go...Starts at xc can be brutal on small twisty courses too.
