Fantastic mileage everybody and lovely photo Swittle.
I see my role on here as something of the idiot sidekick to the band of heroes who are the main feature - the one who bumbles along in the background dropping things and falling over the chickens
GNR for me yesterday and a truly SPECTACULAR PW owing to a) the heat (now have a very funny sunburned face with white creases where l was frowning) b) 35 minutes spent in queues for the loo because of a mystery stomach bug but really and overwhelmingly c) my appallingly lazy lack of training over the last two months.
Still, apart from the standing still in the queues, l didn't walk, even up the John Reid Road and l did finish and l suppose did it faster than everyone who didn't do it at all!
Brilliant win for Mo Farah and the atmosphere was as great as always AND (and this is important to my OH who could run this in about 1.30 but stays with me and supports me) we came in ahead of Sponge Bob Squarepants...
