Massive well dones to all at The Bullock yesterday, what a leaderboard, commiserations to those who didnt get all the way and thanks so much for all the support on course. It's such a long event that its easy to forget the early stages and seeing Boston Burglar, The Broker etc. all added to the experience. CC and Morticia were everywhere and Eric popped up where they weren't, all offering encouragement and advice as to where the rest of the field were. There are lots of mentions of Harriers on marathontalk this week including a song about nexus icon (which needs a bit of work, but the sentiment is there) I just beat Foxy by losing 5 and a half pounds. but then again I have more to lose to begin with, that is the last time I am running this event as fat as that. I dont know if Jayne comes on here, but to be the fastest woman in 39 years really is quite an achievement.
Like Jonah says, if you haven't done it, give it a go. Its not just about the race, its all the reccies which make it special, if you can run a marathon you can definitely do the Bullock
I know a few people are coming over to New Mills next weekend for The King And Us Too, if anyone wants any tickets £10 a pop, let me know and i will put them aside for you. The bands are all great and that commentator from the Stockport Ten is on.
Best of luck on Saturday everyone. Alex Waddington who is a keen Bullocker has had a sex pistols type t shirt made up To sell for £20 with the proceedshoing to cancer charities. He only has twenty five and has asked me to spread the word. If you do twitter he is @AWaddingComms, you could contact him there to order one or drop me a text and I'll do it for you if you don't have it. Picture below (I hope). Lovely day for a run today
