Tricky - that's a very convoluted explanation of how you got a puddle on the floor

Happy Birthday Tink.

Watching the London Marathon was what made me want to run marathons. Every year, I'd watch the finish and see them running past Buck House and think 'I'd love to do that'. 

In 2011, I took it one stage further - I told Mrs O my idea and applied for the ballot. Totally failed to get in and entered Paris instead. The rest is history. 

Still trying to get into London - one day, maybe next year

RR - I know the answer to the triathlon relay question

We watched the British team win the world champs in Hamburg last week (on the tele). 

4 team members, girl, boy, girl, boy. 

Each person runs a triathlon set - swim about 300m, cycle about 3k, run about 1.6k.

As each runner finishes, they touch hands with the next team member and off it goes again.

The dives at the start of the swimming can be a little bit unorthodox. 

Great fun to watch

Emmy - well, I'm in the ballot for VLM (ha!) but if I don't get in then I've decided to try another city. Not sure where yet but hopefully somewhere with a BCRC presence.

Hi Solb and welcome to the throng. 

Paris - love it. 

I won't be running there next year but this thread is so brilliant that I refuse to leave. 

I'm in week 4 of my training for an October marathon and picked up a slight niggle at the back of my leg last night Nice and easy does it, though. Plenty of time.

Not wanting to surpass Weedy's assault by a goose but I was stung by a wasp on Saturday - and it really hurt. But I didn't cry.
