And fat slow people in yellow lycra going to Kona and winning races and European Championships'n'stuff. *nods in agreement*

Seriously, it was was it was and "it is what it is" (Rule 4)

If anyone feels the urge to hate, please go and hate something truly detestable.

Nice report

It would be good for it to become a Pirate staple; it's a great event!

I've puked while running, but never had the control to empty my bladder... and I'd always make like a bear if my bowels were likely to let go.

I've acquired a couple of decent injuries and still finished; my last 3 days at Transalp were completed with my ankle strapped rigid at 90 degrees and Challenge Vichy involved slings and stitches (though I still made up one place on the marathon; I'm quite proud of that ) Neither of those was particularly clever, though I'm proud of the medals.

That'd end in a murder-suicide, surely?

A question about discrimination in the workplace

How hard people work is completely independent of their reproductive ability

The rules state that holiday entitlement continues to accrue when on maternity leave (as does seniority). If an employee has 9 months off, I then have to pay them for another month's holiday in the remaining 3 months of the year. Yes, the maternity leave is paid for by the government, but the employer pays the full rate for the 4.2 weeks holiday.

I'm not pleading poverty, but as a sole trader, it means that there's no money for the nice things in life this year or next.
