Looks like Sheli might well take it outright this year!

A lot of people get hooked on the Hardmoors races.

They take in some majestic scenery, are taxing events, and very well organised.

I decided to risk it for a biscuit.  

Going to be having nightmares about river scenes for the rest of the year!

New Sweatshop in Glasgow

Have a look if you want, but do not trust their advice.  

They will try to push Karrimor products on you, regardless of your actual needs.

I would tell a four hour marathoner to aim for about nine hours, so I guess you could aim for something around the seven mark.  

Who owns Sweatshop ?

If Mike Ashley bought out Mercedes, he would buy the production line for some sort of obsolete Easter European car, and manufacture them under the Mercedes badge, while pretending that they used to cost several times what he was selling them for.

His strategy works for product brands such as Karrimor, but it doesn't seem to work for retail brands that he purchases. The customers quickly figure out that they are not getting the service that they had become accustomed to, and simply take their custom elsewhere.

Beacon Hill, Broombriggs Farm Trail, Bardon Hill, Bradgate Park. These places are hill training gold dust!

Why are most of your runs alongside a canal booktrunk?

You have hill training opportunities on your doorstep, that many people would give their right arm for.

It is horses for courses at the end of the day.  

I suspect that most of us here have a pretty good idea what we need, so why not just buy from Start Fitness or Sports Shoes, where the premium shoes are cheap as chips?
