Dachs - did you see the Cardiff half highlights? It was on Eurosport last night. After wading through the charity/celebrity/fancy dress brigade, they made a pretty decent fist of covering the elite races. You got almost as much TV time as Marders.
Dan, I saw the C4 coverage, not sure if it was the same as Eurosport. I had a good couple of minutes in total. First time I've ever seen myself run, my form is nowhere near as gawky as I had imagined.
LS21 – excellent, amusing report, and thanks very much for the Rhythm is a Dancer earworm. No, really, thanks a bunch. Great to see such a strong performance and your delight at nailing it. And congratulations on not crashing your car on the way home.
Stet – well done on coasting to a GFA
ON7 – Still a solid performance at CP10. A lot of people seemed to struggle, so you’re far from the only one.
Selbs – taper madness, yay!
Thirsk R – hope to see you at Leeds then. I have just booked accommodation for myself and the Mrs, in the Queens Hotel, thus facilitating a quick getaway from oop north by rail afterwards.
PP – I had been vaguely hoping to run Maidenhead 10 next year, as it’s so close and I’ve never done it. Easter is always a difficult time with family stuff though. I’ll see if I can pencil it in.
Is it too early to wish good luck to the Frankfurters this weekend? May you be smothered by the ketchup of success and accompanied by the grilled onions of new personal bests. Or something. TT’s ankle will no doubt hold up and propel him to an obscenely fast time, selbs will get his well deserved reward for having put up with so much shite, and Jools will sail (literally, due to stature) under the radar to another PB. It must be true, it appeared to me in a vision.
