Fantastic effort, Badbark - and nice one with the "heel clipper" - I remember your report of his antics  . . . .

tough day, Freemers - big kudos for seeing it through  . . .

Jools - bad luck for issues to appear on Friday , but admirable stoicism;  I'm sure you'll smash Chicago  . . . .

congratulations to all yesterday's warriors - PB's, solid runs, pragmatic runs, gritty runs - it's never easy,  accomplishing the 26.2 ,  so well done all - really enjoyed all the reports - (almost) makes me want to use my GFA for next year . . . . .     

btw, why has sub- 3:15 disappeared from the RW Spring Marathon menu ? had to click on "latest posts" of a thread contributor to access  . . .

probably do you good anyway, Gul, to have a mini-rest - you've trained well in recent weeks, with some excellent sessions, so your body will appreciate the chance to prepare for the final pre-taper push 

Poacher wrote "On the right is Steve Jones, former WR holder and, shockingly, still UK record holder after more than 30 yrs"  . . .  how the hell did Mr Jones do it though - I mean - he had no "gel strategy", "beet shots" didn't exist ; in fact he may not even have eaten beetroot !     

12 miles on the trails around here today -

Jason, you've plenty to come, I would say - this was only your debut.  My 1st attempt  was a 4.14 horror show (I didn't have a clue what I was doing), but a year later I managed a 3.01, then next 17 outings  (with exception of an ill-fated DNF) were all between 2.46 & 2.59.  You've time on your side, and if you apply yourself (Jools is a perfect example to follow), then who knows what you could do . . . . .
