Some folk are just liars and cheats and that's the way they live their lives. We have a guy in our running club who cheated in London a few years ago, he says he didn't but the splits show that he did the 2nd half in a time that would have qualified him for the Olympics!
Iain - that's not good news, you should never ever run with a knee support unless prescribed by physio. Using a support means the ligaments will weaken and you could end up with a worse or chronic injury.
You can wear the guard when not running though.
Back running today Lovely Spring morning and saw a kestrel, can't remember the last time I saw a kestrel except on the motorway
mamafox - North Dorset marathon, 4th May. One of my very favourite marathons, quiet country roads through beautiful countryside, very close to where I lived until I was 6. And May is my favourite time of year in this country, all lush and green.
