Looked like a good day for running in London.

How did you guys get on?

Ged, congratulations on your contract extension.

Haven't been in touch much, and it sounds like I missed a lot. Glad to hear your operation went well, Howard. Sounds like all change for you, Ged.

 All change for me too, as work on the new house is about to start in earnest. Kitchen planning yesterday and now on to bathrooms. Am getting some running in, 1:55 for half marathon last week and 5k planned for Wednesday.

Need to keep this up better...

Meant all the best of course. (Not sure what happened there...)

Well done on taking the plunge Howard, I wish you all the nast. And Ged, hope you get something sorted out soon on the job front too.

You must be doing a lot of miles Ged, if you go through 2 tyres per year (100,000?). Is your tyre pressure ok? Must be hard btw if you only know week by week whether you're in a job.

Han, eBay sells everything. How are the preparations for Everest going?

Anybody up for Gloucester marathon in January btw? It is near Quedgeley, probably Ian and Plod know more about it.

Lost the 4:30 pace group at mile 20 today after catching up with them at mile 11. Dublin quite warm and sunny, luckily not as bad as London. Did not aim for particular time (except maybe beat this year's 5:17 in London). Ended up finishing in 4:36:15, so very happy with the result.
Sore legs but Guinness is helping!

Triathlon seems to be good marathon training...

Read today that mobile phone companies have finally agreed on a universal phone charger. Long overdue..

How's everyone?

Dublin this Monday looks like it is going to be a wet and windy one. 2 Miles this morning, feeling kind of ok, but slow and undertrained.

Travel down tomorrow by bus (yes, have finally bought house so no more spending money on anything else; now 3 month wait for planning permission on extension), quiet day today and tomorrow. From memory the expo wasn't much 3 years ago, and it's bound to be worse this year. Will post my time hopefully Monday evening.

Han, are solar powered cameras or wind-up ones maybe an idea for your track? Altitude and pressure change can do funny things with batteries.

Ian, hats off to you for 4:14 in Chicago, great time and good luck in Boston.

Is Supes' 5 marathon project no longer on track?

Can I come out of the woodwork too? Nearly 4 years after the memorable NY Marathon, how time flies.

 Han, Everest marathon sounds great. Howard, although cortisone injections are apparently painful they have worked very well for several people I know.

Will listen to Christmas song soon.
