Gul - if you use the rucksack thing, you could simply carry a battery operated strimmer on every run. Clear foliage as you go,, and you could make the countryside more accessible for non runners too.
8m along the canal again. Bizarre sight: a bloke up to his chest in the water, prodding the bottom of the canal with a stick. Turned out he'd lost the propeller off his narrow boat and had had to play the part of a horse by physically dragging the boat to the nearest mooring. Good XT.
Lorenzo - super stuff, a great achievement and every time you look at a map of the UK you will remember that you are one of fairly few people who have run almost from one sea to another - virtually coast to coast. Well toughed out. 111k is a serious step up from Comrades distance. Top quality DBS-ing too. Next year will have to be impressive to beat this. Thames Ring anyone?
Birch - North Lincs - not far from Hull eh?
Nice boozing by Freemers
Gul - we can tell you are itching to get back to the Raceway - get that entry in.
I walked past through Trafalgar Sq and past Chandos y'day - going to London as rarely as poss I find that these places, the Embankment etc instantly trigger graphic memories of triumph/tragedy from 11yrs of LM.
10m along the canal today. Bumper breeding season for Canada geese.
