Errrmm - imagine the even sinkier feeling when you find out you have registered after all and started a misleading thread to elicit sympathy.

Well at least I'll be able to eat the sausage rolls with a clear conscience!

Had thought of that (and would not dream of scoffing the sausage rolls) but might go to Southend instead - well it's by the sea.

Not quite as bad as it could have been - at least I have another event in a couple of weeks time so the training won't be wasted.

Happy Birthday to Steve Ovett

I always find it strange that people think Coe came from a much posher background than Ovett.  His Dad was an engineer and he, like Ovett, went to Secondary Modern School.  The predjudice seems to stem from his name and the fact he was polite and spoke well.

It really depends on what kind of running you are doing.  If you are doing relatively short distances in urban areas then getting a bit damp probably won't matter.  However, if you are going to be out for long distance in the country I would carry one of those cheap plastic ponchos that you can get in the pound shops.  Very low tech, but very effective if you are caught in a real downpour.

There are 2 magazines - one for success and one for rejects.  Basically the same content, although the reject mag. pushes the charities' gold bond places.
