Overdone it?

Excellent work Mr V, but especially Bob. I don't understand the bit of the report with the description of the race, but I do understand the bit about the PB, so well done! 

I am still not doing fast running and it has been a beautiful day here in Fife, so I just went for a nice easy run, baked some brioche, and admired some large cocks at the county show.

PS: Madbee - no, because I have adblock turned on and can't see it.

What I find a little strange though is last year the 120,000mark was reached in about 12 hours and then closed, this year its open for 5 days and only reaches 249,000


It makes perfect sense that leaving the ballot open five times as long will not lead to five times as many people entering. Last year, people knew that if they were planning to enter they had to get in as soon as possible. This year, everyone who wanted to enter could take their time. This seems more plausible to me than conspiracy theories about reference numbers.

You might consider just cutting the laces so they are still long enough to tie up but short enough so that the ends don't annoy you. Recreate the annoying plastic bit using sellotape.

Anyway, you asked what everyone else was doing...

I think everyone else just leaves them outside the shoe.

Hamsterley! What a splendid name for a race.

I know we have had this conversation before but if I told my mates I was up at 2:55am having a wazz whilst looking at the neighbour in his underpants it would mean something entirely different.

Sounds like something DT might be doing with his self-massager.

The Battle of Hastings was in Battle, which probably wasn't called anything at all in those days, but now there is a small market town and a very attractive Norman abbey. Sometimes when I am visiting my parents I run through some fields and woods round the back of the abbey which is where the conquering Norman army will have marched up on their way from Pevensey. It is generally a bit muddy.

I have never had a filling, she added, smugly.

I think it depends when it is and what your other goals are, Madbee. i.e. 'too much time out' from what?

Yesterday I noticed that my total mileage for the year was exactly 1066 miles, which was pleasing for someone who comes from Hastings. I was going to post about this pleasing coincidence. But I forgot and now I have been for another run so it's too late.

Oh yes, that time you bought yourself a... *ahem* 'massager'.

I notice you're not denying it though.

Why has Tom Chinery been deleted?

Now I'll never find out whether or not he achieves his ambitious goals.
