Annoyances when out running

Posted: Today at 16:07

The trouble with people shouting at runners is lack of originality. They think they are being original and witty, not realising that you have heard the same thing numerous times before. I have lost track of the number of people have said to me 'you look hot'. Of course I do, it's summer and I am running.  What I would like to hear is someone say 'you look hot, would you like an ice lolly?'.

"The Commonwealth Games are a bit shit"

Posted: Yesterday at 16:43

I agree that it is a good opportunity for up and coming atheletes to be given a chance on the world stage, but it doesn't diminish the enjoyment for spectators.

I am looking forward to the womens steeplechase tonight. Local athelete Pippa Woolven is competing for England. She recently set a new course record at my usual parkrun (Black park 28th june) and hammered everyone out of sight. Being Scottish I never thought that one day I would be cheering for England at the commomwealth games, but I guess that is progress.

There appears to be a recent trend of resurecting threads which were long dead and buried. Are old threads coming back to haunt us all? Are they trying to take over the forum? Who is behind this undead menace? Do RW towers need to call in an exorcist?

Term time holidays

Posted: 29/07/2014 at 16:39

For purely selfish reasons I am against term time holidays:

1) I don't want to go on hoiday and find that the hotel/resort is full of kids.

2) I don't want to pay more for my holidays, due to companies realising  that at certain times demand is increased by parents taking children out of school during term time.

3) The holiday season is already extended to far with school terms being staggered.

4) Children, bah humbug!

He wouldn't actually do something like that. Would he?

I have met Samir, He seems like a nice guy when you meet him, unlike his online persona.

Thanks for the tips guys, there is no doubt that it is deliberate. He waits until I am about 5 meters away and then takes a sudden lurch to the side to block the path. Unfortunately he is a teenage lad that obviously thinks it is amusing to do this. I wouldn't want to accused of assaulting a minor so I generally give him an ear bashing. Did I mention that he was a member of Slough Junior Athletic Club. 

Dear Idiot.....

This is a timely thread. I had to stop for an accdent yesterday, when the car infront of me knocked down a cyclist. I was somewhat gobsmacked by the attitude of the driver. when I spoke to her she told me that she hadn't done anything wrong and didn't even get out of her car to check on the guy. It was definitely her fault. Unbelievable!

I hate the w***er who has deliberately stepped infront of me to block the path as I have run past. This has happened on several occasions and what makes it worse is that he is a runner (one time he was even wearing his club jacket). 

Are you really a runner...

It makes sense to me - if you can trip over your own feet you can make someone else trip over them - it's what judo's all about isn't it?

was always my favourite tactic, sometimes I even tripped myself up will trying such a move.
