JR - ah ive just finished it now it was - the Bunion Derby: The 1928 Footrace across America. Really good, bit short but a nice read

Got off my ass and trotted out a 10k. Nothing special but was nice to get it done. It was more about trying to claw back some mojo than the actual run.

 JR I am so pleased for you!!! Congratulations Sir thats brilliant!!

Dont worry about the time, the first marathon is a recce ha ha ha I too nearly balled my eyes out when finishing my first

Happy birthday too, what a great way to spend it!

JaneyH and 330 have hit the nail on the head with everything they have said

JaneyH that sounds like some heavy ol training you had going on there! phew!

I had my own adventure at the weekend in the form of the London Enduro 12hr.

Hot, humid, dusty and hilly! Got pretty much everything wrong but was very very pleased to walk away with 80k Started off waaay to fast (standard  ) overheated, ate loads of crap, threw up at mile 41 (tactical move  ) had a lovely chat and a wonder on the last lap as we were out of time and the lap would count anyway and came in in 12:23 something or other.

I was greeted with everyone paying attention to the guy cooking bacon and then not presented with a medal due to them running out.

Instead I was offered the 50k finishers medal and a promise to send me a salomon hat.......WIN!

Fine by me as the only difference in the medals was the colour of the ribbon.....meh its only going to hang in the cupboard anyway!

The t shirt is pretty sweet though!

All in all I was way off target but lucky and grateful to come away with 50 miles.

Another one blagged! I should really get my ass into gear one day ha ha ha!

This post really really can be looked over.......back to JR!!!!

Dude amazing effort, welcome to the club!! 

Starting again from the beginning!
