Padams - yup, I did the St Albans parkrun prior to the big match at Luton Town (Luton v Accrington Stanley). Enjoyed the run.
TT - I remembered to enter London this year, so there's that but I think I may concentrate efforts at the Brescia Marathon instead. Long standing leg injury has gone and I'm back to 80 mpw. At the moment I'm just getting some miles in, doing a parkrun on a saturday and not really arsed about anything else.
Good afternoon. No idea how this happened but somehow my Virgin TiVo box recorded a programme called "Marathon" last night of its own free will.... ( possibly because I once recorded coverage of the Snowden Mara?)
Anyway - it was the York Marathon and clearly the stars of the show were a bloke called Paul and one called Jason. These two got nowhere enough after race interview time. If only they'd made up some story about having been 40 stone and addicted to Fosters/Boddingtons last Christmas, rather than "fantastic, really great crowd, amazing etc".... Oh well, can't see Clare Balding being in their diaries much in future.
How depressing to see Farah run with absolutely no contrition or apology to the country he betrayed. I notice he gave some interview in which he said he didn't run in Glasgow because he thought he might lose.
Can't believe that anyone could read it and defend him afterwards.
Anyway, what was the point in him even running tonight. It was like Marigold beating me and some of the other crapper forumites. Yet he cheered and did his pathetic mo bot. An imbecile, a traitor and a tw@t.
Compare him to Dwain Chambers. A drug cheat who is a much bigger man and competitor than Farrah will ever be.
