Hmm. Not sure if I'm meant to be you or your minion in that scenario!
Anyway, I have now read back over the 4000 pages I missed yesterday and can't be arsed responding to everything, but: 1) happy birthday Richard! 2) marrows, sorry you didn't get what you wanted, but also it is pretty good to be the kind of runner who is disappointed with a sub 20 min parkrun. and 3) Belper 30k was 2201ft of elevation and it wasn't an especially hard race.
