ES, you brought a tear to my eye - or maybe it was that pesky fly that got in there on the way back from track.

If ES runs 6:05 (sub 2:40) pace I will be well impressed.  I have ES, PPP and RC all around the 2:45 mark.  But ES's legs are too short to run faster than 6:04 mile splits for 5k! 

And don't forget the Vaseline/ Bodyglide/ plasters - we don't want any BT type problems out there.

Enjoyed cycling around the course today - so much better than running it! 

Great effort from SARQ in the last couple of kms - made up a lot of ground on the way to a really great time. 

BT, I heard the screams when you got in the shower!

Great sub 3 by M, and a big PB for SW too. 

Jenny Knass must have got a good time too, although can't find any results. Anyone?

BB, that's a sickener - just hope it is not too serious.  Not had a major hamstring problem before, but is physio/ massage the right thing to do?  I'm not saying it isn't 'cos I don't know, but it is worth checking beforehand.

ES, OK, sounds like outside Costa. I have your number unless you have changed it in the last couple months. 

PPP, if you change your mind...

TB, I think the 2 means that is the second time he has posted a message worth reading.

TST, yes they were all sub 90 seconds - perhaps with the exception of the first although you were not with us at that time.  With the lane 2 extra 9 meters or whatever it is, somewhere around 5:40 mile pace.

ES, that will do for me.  Guess we want to be there at 09:15 to get a good vantage point before the leaders arrive.  I'll probably go through Didsbury and past Southern Cemetery - maybe around 0830 - if you want to meet en-route. 

Oh no, does that mean there is another JMC?

PPP, have you plucked up the courage to ask about cycling to watch the M/cr Marathon?  Get a move on.

Good result there TST...and I can only dream of a time like BB at the moment!

Looks like ES has dusted off the magic treadmill again.  Not sure I want to cycle with him, he'll be travelling at the speed of light.

PPP, waiting for you to get your pass out, then we can arrange something.

Great time BB and a big PB; other than the fact it was fast, did you like the course?

Anyone cycling (on a non competitive basis) to support our runners in the M/cr marathon?

Saved myself £2 and tried a run round the block, unsuccessfully.  Hopefully I will be able to get out some time over the weekend and do something.  Bummer.

Well, my big toe is still giving me some problems.  Will try a lap or two at track and then decide whether to carry on or go home.  Probably the 25 laps is better for me.

I don't think 16 miles on Saturday is a good idea, so won't be doing that either.

I am continuing to make the leap from competitive runner to jogger with great success!
