The Twittersphere is outraged

There is a responsibility on the runner to be fit enough and run it in a reasonable time.  We all know roughly how long it will take to run a race.  That is the nature of the game.   It is insulting to expect marshals to stand about for one slow runner.  

Organsiers have every right to pull folk from races if they are either not gonig to make it in time or whatever.

Perhaps those who write these news reports put on a pair of trainer and get out there and run.  Instead they make this into a massive story which it is not. 

Perhaps Netty ought to just run faster or enter races where there is an age to get round.  she had a choice to start earlier but decied not to take it.  Responsibility lies with her.

Obviously not that clever and a lack of common sense.   Anyone with a right mind would not even look at those videos. 

And he's not a john.

Dear Management.

Thank you for closing the site and making 30 people redundant.   Not a good start to the week and i did find it odd that last week the company youtube clip celebrating how well we are doing was badly timed.   The line about jelly and icecream is not not quite so funny now.

you have no idea the mistake you have made.

Running with or without music?

Dachs - rough deal. 

No-one has mentioned those fabulous dog walkers who insist on having 3 miles of lead attached to said mutt.   worse still when they can see you coming.............  

Running with or without music?

Run without music, no need for the distraction and faffing with wires and which tune to listen to.   It is very noticable that those who do not where headphone acknowledge others runners, the headphone crowd are in a world of their own.



Gentlemen, please explain...

We all know there is a huge amount of bad food and drink out there but no-one is focing us to eat it.  If we know what the crappy foods are then best avoid it.

No-one is forcing us to eat crap food.  

Its down to making a choice
