MJ XXX - yuk. Can't work out how you managed to find your way home after that lot!
RFJ - hope it was nothing too serious.
HoHo - yup, 2 lads. The younger one (14) is the runner.
VTr - 11 degrees Fahrenheit. Where exactly are you?
Minni - Town Moor 10K sounds good. I'll be up in North Yorkshire for Xmas so hoping to make it into York for a parkrun on the 27th. Very flat, very fast couple of loops round the racecourse to blow away the cobwebs although I'm planning to get some runs in Xmas Day and Boxing Day as well as there's some great running round where the in-laws live.
Nice long run there Birch. Always pleasing to get a 20 miler in the bag, especially when the conditions aren't ideal.
Glad to see Speedy's comeback going well. Fingers crossed for an injury / lurgy free period now. Good sub 20s from PMJ and Leslie.
I'm at just over 3,100 miles for the year so far, but as 1,300 of them were on the bike in a 2 month period over the summer it's not really as impressive as many folks on here.
I can also lay claim to the slowest parkrun of the day so far - I'd sent an email last night offering to volunteer and ran the 9 miles to the start but then found out that they didn't need me so rather than hang around getting cold while Mrs L and younger Lorenzito went round, I thought I'd join in as well. Taking this (and the fact that it was our company Xmas lunch / afternoon bash yesterday), I'm not too unhappy with 20:36.
As expected I finished some way behind younger Lorenzito who went sub 18 for the first time with 17:56.
Away - I want to try and build a really solid base for the next few months. As with everyone on here, time is the biggest constraint but I reckon I can manage things to get a couple of 9 or 10 milers in midweek, building up to 12/13 + a long run most weekends. I suspect that 60 is pretty much the upper limit.
I haven't read Lore of Running - is that the one that's the really big, definitive guide to running? Good luck in Belgium.
Like LJB, I'm also intrigued by Gul having had a haircut by 6.30am!!
