Vixx, really terrible shame you were so cruelly robbed of your dream Rotterdam experience.
We didn't make it to Paddy Murphy's on Sunday night, although we had been there on Saturday afternoon to watch the end of the Grand National live on the TV. GaleForce's luck of the Irish deserted him as 'Irish Invader' faded after having been an early leader.
We did, however, celebrate at a different Irish pub - O'Shea's - on the other side of Coolsingel - led astray by a load of other Brits.
SteveG, congratulations on your PB. Conditions were absolutely ideal. GaleForce and I both got PBs too, as did our party organiser.
So, what news of Mr. Cunningham ? How was the flat, and the do-it-yourself pasta party ?
Some of my veteran clubmates tell me that the number of runners finishing in a decent time (under 3 hours) at the London marathon is a lot less these days compared to what it was years ago. Does anyone have any figures to back this up ? And if so, what do you think is the reason for the decline ?
