Deep joy. I'm so glad I looked in here again. Never mind the great marathons and reports from Moof, Jools, MsE et all, it was worth the visit just to hear about Birch's gym invite. Seated aerobics indeed.
And how about that Irishman? From racing in his wife's knickers, to sharing walnuts with innocent bystanders, to representing his country. What a hoot.
Gul - How about 17 laps of the Cyclopark for the Kent Roadrunner marathon on 30th May?
Good luck, marathon runners. I hope you and the road will be very happy together.
There's an empty hotel room, well placed for spectators ("our cancellation policy is 48 hours, not 24, you loser"). Let me know if you could use it.
Tricky business on the domestic front, PMJ. I've always felt that the impressive runners aren't the quick ones (any eejit can run fast). It's those who somehow smuggle their training through the cracks between the demands of partners, kids, jobs & lives etc.
What a swizz, Birch - Breaking the club age record, only to have your pal break it by a bigger margin. I really enjoyed your report and I loved the team winning 3rd place, despite featuring two runners over 60.
Oh gawd help us, Minni. If you get one of those silly tattoos of a company's logo, then..... well, something or other, that's for sure.
I had adopted the same approach for Abingdon, Fishy. Until it transpired I'm even more infirm that I feared.
That marathon was a long time coming, Gul. So it's understandable that you'd be a little over-eager in the early miles. With a steadier start, you'd have been much closer to 3:15. How much closer, do you think? I'm with Mrs Gul on the watch suggestion, by the way.
