Gerard: sorry to hear that and no apology needed for sharing the sad news. I hope you're able to keep things civilised and if the odd rant on here assists, then go for it. The sad thing about hitting mid 30s for me is seeing friends who married in our mid 20s going their own separate ways.

Had an awesome morning watching the marathon in Glasgow. Saw Steve just after the start, at halfway and in the finishing straight, including his superb finish to grab 10th. A particularly brilliant random brilliant moment was noticing a couple of other pink Way of Steve t-shirts and cheerily saying to them "we match". The eldest lady ran over and hugged me and said "I'm Steve's mum". So lovely!

Well done, Slokey! That's fantastic!

SJ: no. Will travel in by train or bus from my sister's then walk down to Glasgow Green.

Marrows: well done on the 7k. Must have been odd racing without km markers!

Best of luck to thunder runners. Rather you than me!

I've got tickets for the Sunday session at Hampden Park so should have had the chance to see him run

Good luck, SJ and Marrows (I hope I've got that right!).

18M for me, taking advantage of a day out of court to free up some time for marathon spectating rather than LSR-ing on Sunday

Arse.  Just lost a long post, so this is a quick summary of everything I tried to say before...

Glad to hear Padams is gradually recovering and hope it's just a niggle, CW.

Big miles from Lev (your cut-back week exceeds my big week!) and SL.

Trying to imagine what 42 degrees is like to even walk in, Stet.

Bains: I always find that after a couple of speed sessions the legs remember how to run a bit faster again.

Took advantage of a day out of court to get my 'long' run of 18M in today rather than try and do it on Sunday, when I have important things such as watching Mr. Way to do instead.  But does 18M really count as long on this thread these days?!

DanA: I'm going on Sunday and Speedy and I are planning to cheer Marigold on together.  My pink Way of Steve t-shirt will be coming with me and I will try and get some decent photos, but will probably run from my sister's house to Glasgow and therefore only have my little camera with me, which isn't great.

Feeling similarly in awe of 30M runs mid-week (actually, 30M runs any day, but particularly mid-week!).  14M was quite enough for me last night and I'll be doing my LSR tomorrow so that I don't have to get up quite so early on Sunday (marathon does start at 9am), but that'll only be 18M.  A mere trifle.

Dachs: it was more the image of a sausage dog running 5k flat out which tickled me pink!  My dad is half Russian so I was indoctrinated from a young age about the benefits of foreign ancestry.  Although possibly not ancestry to boast about just at the moment...

Marrows: 2.56 would be great but I'll take a final pace decision 3 or 4 weeks out. A lot can happen in 10 weeks!
