I did run for CLIC when I first run VLM and got a GFA for the following year and told anyone who wanted to sponsor me to go on their just giving page. I havent bothered this year, yet.
Last year celebs started at head of green pen, which was a mistake, as the seconfd they took the tape seperating us plebs from the celebs they got run over by the push to the GFAs to get to the start. I went across it in 4 seconds last year. 9 with 6 x 1000m completed and a comfortably quick 15 last night and starting to feel like I am getting back somewhere to pace now.
Hope all the niggles are proving to be nothing more than that.
