Cheers Mags ! I'm sure it's a lovely course if u can see it , but people were out quite literally standing in dense fog just to say well done , so for that reason alone I'm glad I  kept going    ( and it keeps those boys interested )

Rob, I ran Llanelli this year, it's completely flat on a coastal path it's only drawback is it's a figure of 8 course so it's not for everyone but you do get a fine medal and a trophy at the end

Natalie, I will look out for you next week, this is the original course so I haven't tried it, no doubt another painfest for me but heh

Natalie , I think I saw you at the end , do you have a top that says Natty across the front by the time my brain had computed the information you were gone , I got what I expected at Dervock, pain and 2:17 , just 22 mins off my PB , but I really enjoy it , are you for Cookstown next week ? 

Paul , your fairly racking up the miles good man, 18 mile cycle this morning for me, first time on a bike since school but I enjoyed it , just found out I'm at a family wedding on 11th October so no Wall for me, Booooooo, gonna have to look for another event

Cheers DS

Hey Alwyn, how's it going ?

Natalie , 2 years ago I said to a friend if I can complete a half we will sign up for Dublin Marathon,Dervock was that half, I completed it and went on to run Dublin, it's a nice course with some challenging bits but you are always made very welcome both in the village and surrounding countryside and the Dark Hedges are just fab , hope to see you later (large bald man , lime green mournes top)

Natalie , I'm running tomorrow , very little training so I'm not expecting any great time but I'm expecting it to hurt a lot  Dervocks my favourite half so I hope it gives me the boot up the arse that I need , see you at the start line 

Medoc Marathon

Notting Hill , small tight and shiny with feathers seems to be the order of the day , I think it's about bending the truth a little , are you all English ?, Rio has one of  the biggest Carnivals in the world  so you could all wear England shirts , carry return tickets and exit signs , would love to do Medoc someday looks great , will keep an eye out to see how you all get on , on a more serious note is it that hot in September ?? Best of luck

DS , Thanks for the advice I really appreciate it , I'm gonna spend the next few days getting to know the bike( my last bike was a Grifter) , oh yes , once I get some pedals, didn't know pedals were such a specialised subject  Helpline conversation went something along the lines of " hello, I've just received a bike with no pedals ", "with that type of bike people like to pick their own pedals " "really ?"  " yes, are you thinking of using cleats ?" , " would it surprise you that I don't know what you're talking about ?", " no sir it wouldn't !!"  This cross over is going to be a slow process !!!

Leslie, that's great mileage , what's next ? , Triathlon for me ? Nope, water terrifies me !!

Kenny/ Paul , cheers , I will see how the training goes, I haven't been on a bike in about 30 years  , and it's with that same blind stupidity I approach most things , but then if someone told me 2 years ago that I'd run 7 marathons I would have told them they needed their head examined

Kenny, thats good news about pack collection, see you Saturday all being well.
