LOL TP  Absolutely right.

I really hope the SFA decide to keep Hampden as an athletics stadium too. Apparently, football fans do not like stadiums where the pitch is inside an athletics track because they claim they are too far back and can't see the action as well

They have lost/taken out about 2000 seats to put in the track, and I suspect that might be the main driver for converting it back. But it would be amazing to have such a great athletics stadium as a permanent ficture for the city.

I am sure that it would attract a lot more athletics competition and would probably egt slotted in as a regular for the diamond league. Could also make the city a contender for the europeans and the worlds.

Morning all. I am having a great time marathon sunday (Pollok park), hampden Sunday, Tuesday eve, yesyerday eve and again tonight  great to see everything live, and am really proud of the city and everyone who is so supportive of all the athletes, and who save a special roar of support for the ones who are trailing.

Only one sour moment last night, when some F-wit behind me booed the English discus thrower . I think about 20 people pounced on him and gaffer taped his mouth: his voice was not heard again  When they played the English national anthem for Dave Weirs win, everyone was singing.

Inspiring and motivating.

Another lovely day. Phew  I have to run later today, that is going to be pleasant not, but all good training for the Volcano and the Atacama

Managed to grab a £40 ticket for the evening athletics session on the 31st  I do not know why I did not apply for that one in the initial ballot. A friend with a ticket cannot go and he offered up his ticket, which then got me looking at the schedule, and I immediately wanted to go, but could not afford the ticket he had. So I have spent a week swithering and trying not to think about it, then by sheer chance spotted that some tickets had been released on website and I managed to nab one

Anyone going to be heading for Pollok park on Sunday to watch the marathon? I thought about trying to move about, but then it is going to be so fast it willbe hard to get between spots, plus I have a ticket for Hampden for the afternoon/evening session so will stick with Pollok Park.

TP I would happily take some of your allotment surfeit  Especially beetroot

Also, I have quite a few tickets for the baton relay finish line event at queens park on Tuesday (3.30 - 7.30, gates close at 6.15) If you would like a couple let me know and we can arrange a handover. I applied in the ballot and got 6  then found out after that I got allocated 4 because I am a bearer . So, I have 10 and only 5 are spoken for at the moment.

Easing back into training. Should get my GGU race report finished and posted at some point today.

Had meant to say, 57.5, apols on my part too. My problem, as I discovered when I finally met CC is rationalising real names with non-de-plume and faces - especially when knackered and suffering from sleep deprivation

They did that at the diamond league too. I saw the WR for the T44 women's long jump set on Friday evening

I am lucky in the logistics stakes living so close to Hampden and the three tickets I have are for Hampden events so I am able to walk there.

BM - very belated condolences. Sorry.

Tricialitt - that sounds uncomfortable, both the knee and your face. I remember having a compacted wisdom tooth taken out and ended up like an enraged hamster for several days.

Sounds like better crowds at Hampden on Saturday. I got though security on Friday with no delay, but then I did pitch up really early. Almost wish I had got tickets for both days. I think there was a bit of a muck up with tickets cos I bought one via a deal on Itison and when I collected the ticket there was 2  That happened with a lot of folk apparently, and which probably explains so many empty seats.
