I'll be out at Silverstone on Sunday, so won't catch up with this till the evening, but in truth, this whole charade is making me a little sad.
There's countless runners out there, me included, who put in some serious amounts of training and racing effort, and yet will never come anywhere near Samir's already proven times.
Whilst I'd never want to see a fellow runner fail, I think it's incredible disrespectful for him to be doing what he's doing, messing around at the sharp end of a race, and potentially affecting other's races. I equally hold the Reading organiser's at fault, because he should not be there given the criteria.
Samir, ffs have some respect for other people, and start letting your results do the talking instead of your gob. You've got a natural talent, that much is obvious, so start being a little more grateful for it and exhibit the best marker of a true sportsman...
I'm still waiting for my copy, but I take Rouleur and Privateer, so I know the style of magazine.
£9, yeah, it's pricey, but it's the difference between a cheap mag that is simply 70 pages of adverts, with 10 pages of editorial which is actually disguised adverts, and a well printed magazine, that's pretty much all original content that's not just rehashing the same 'training tips' from the year before.
I'd rather pay £9 six times a year and read something I've never read before, than a fiver monthly for the same old cr*p.
Yes, I appreciate the irony about where I'm writing this comment, so to balance it, I'll point out I do take Runnersworld US.
