DJ-I saw some of your pictures on FB. They really are excellent- I loved the beech hut ones- where were they taken? Sorry to here about wife - I hope that things turn a corner soon. Well done on the progress with your running.

Jude- My wife would not be happy if I forget her birthday!!!! You must treat yourself!!

Franny-Pleased that you had a nice weekend away. I enjoy time away with wifey without children around!!

MC-Hope you managed to get  out for a run.

Yes it is rather hot at the moment managed 6.3 miles on Sunday and Monday and 7 miles this morning after going out at 7 in the morning when it is relative cool. Still rather sweaty when I got home. Managed to keep the sweat off my eyes by waring my buff around my head in true trail runner style!!! If any of you haven't got buffs they are brilliant in the heat around the head or when cold around the neck.

Have a good day...

I have run several races with ETL and they make it clear no MP3 players and I think it is reasonable for those who wear them to be disqualified. I run with headphones when I am on my own- always away from the roads- but, never in races as I enjoy talking to other runners as well as appreciating the support of marshalls and spectators.

Crowd support in races like Brighton Marathon totally negate the need for head phones.

Lainey well done on the British 10k.

DJ-So good to here that your Mojo is back!!! I can tell you that where Franny runs is beautiful. If you are ever in Scotland go to the Pentlands.My run with Franny upthere is one of my all time favourite runs.

MC-Sounds like you had a nice day yesterday.

Chilli-Where are you? Can't remember when we last heard from her.

Franny-How are you after the Chico incident?

Quite a busy time running recently 6.6 on Friday,8.8 with some friends from the club yesterday that was great fun as quite muddy but lovely run in the woods & 7.2 miles this morning. All seems to be working ok.

Franny-Well done on running up that is certainly a tough one.Yes I would love the chance of running from  John O'Groats to Lands End. Hope your leg is OK? Naughty Chico!

6.6 miles this run tomorrow. Bit dull & windy down here.

Sorry been busy...

MC-Well done on your /12...hope knee is ok - enjoy your marking- hopefully you have the summer holidays soon.

Franny-Pleased you all had a good holiday.Sounds a lovely place. I have decided that I really like Scotland- hope to return sometime in the next few years.Talking of John O'Groats I was running with someone on sunday who was asking me if I had done the race before I said "yes" and asked him have you done many long races/runs. His running partner sid "you could say" so I asked him and he said that he had run from John O'Groats to Lands End in 20 days!!! My jaw dropped!!!

Hi Jude- Pleased to here that you are keeping active!! 36c that is Hot Hot Hot!!!

DJ-Well done on your 4.5 miler. Keep at it - you will soon be running longer and longer distances. 

Well I finished my 15 miler in 2.16.45 which I was pleased with as it was 8 minutes quicker than last year. It is around a reservoir,over styles and a few killer hills...mainly trail running so difficult to build up any speed.

It is the 3rd time in a row I have run the race-the 1st race that I have run 3 times. In 2012 I finished in about 2.15. No aches and pains to report and did 7.3 miles this morning + boot camp.

Probably a costal run tomorrow.
