Dean, sorry to hear of your troubles. Puts trivial matters like missing target times by small margins into perspective. Hope you get some better news soon.
Dachs and Bus, well done on some good running at Abingdon. Was thinking of you guys on the day, knowing that it would be a tough day with the weather.
Speaking of the weather, SG, looks like a serious storm must have descended on that footy game!
Interesting race tonight. 8km club league race. Some sicko decided to map out a course with over 550 feet of climbing in just under 5 miles. Not what you expect for a road race. 3rd place with pedestrian time of 28:47 but that's mostly due to the ridiculously hilly course.
I raced my last marathon in Nike flyknit racers. My favourite pair from my 15 pair collection. I thought they offered enough support and I'm a fairly large runner at 6ft 2 and 75kg. Just taped up my toes with leukotape to avoid blisters. No problem at all on the day or afterwards.
