I seem to have entered again

Don't know how but so have I. There were 2279 on the list. Stu, why aren't you one of them?

The 4th Tour de Helvellyn in nearly upon us. I'll be leaving for Askam soon. There will be rain but it should have cleared out by race start tomorrow.

GKD, hope you can make it for next year.

spen, how's it going?

Hello all, stranger here doing his cow's tail act. I've just uploaded the photos I took at this year's race (I'm a busy boy).

Nick's SNOD 2013 photos.

Do you recognise anyone?

Who was that who'd just overtaken me when I was on my mid-race photo shoot?

Naughty Stu let the Paleo side down with that shameless gorging on the sugary sweet delights of the Pantri on Friday evening. It did him some good though, judging by his indecent turn of speed next day.

daz  all runners are injured or returning from injury, it is the main topic of conversation

That means I'm not a runner. So that's why I'm so slow. It all makes sense now.

Seriously, I hope all those who are crook recover well.

Whoever's in charge of The List, please add me to Adlington and Hit the Trail. I know Tony said No Walkers at Adlington, but what the heck.

Brilliant event with excellent marshal support, as always. I liked the new route too. As for 'Tom Potson', he was on form with the running commentary, until his microphone went all Normal Collier on him. Didn't take him long to get it fixed though.

Can't wait for next year. This is one race I never miss.

I hope the boss has told the fan to do as it's told this year. We want no more flaccid dirigibles.

It's going to be a balmy one this year - just right for vest & shorts.

spen, get well soon. hope the op goes OK. Looking on the bright side, an enforced rest has come at the right time for the Christmas wind-down. Start afresh next year.

sp, good to hear from you. Have a good one at Brecon 40. Give my regards to CD please.

DE, hope Clare's OK and recovering well now. It sounds as though you're doing well balancing your fitness schedule with family commitments, although I'm sure a 30-hour day would help as well. It would me anyway.

Famous Grouse went well for me. I chased that up with Gravy Pud fell race the following week (Sunday just gone), with Parkruns every Saturday to try and regain the edge (I'm still 1 minute off PB ). I've got Stockport 10 coming up on Sunday and - something more appropriate for an ULTRA thread - Tour de Helvellyn on the 21st.
