Dead right Stevie.  In recent weeks I've seen some new runners bust a gut to finish a parkrun and that's only 5K.  I admire them as much as I admire the guys who win each week.

You know you are old when ....

When you can remember everyone having a black and white TV.

When you realise that you've been working for more years than some of your colleagues have been alive.

When all shops (except one or two corner shops) were closed on Sundays.



Or is it just me...........................................?

What's baffling you today....?

What baffles me is how I survived my early years when, on Sunday, the only shops that were open were the newsagents and the garden centre. Even in December!!

Am I alone in wondering what their parents are like? Pushy, perhaps?

Negotiations are ongoing to export all the episodes of The Flintstones to the Middle East. Kuwait don't want any of them but Abu Dhabi do............

The Great Cumbrian Run

Delighted that you enjoyed the experience Seamus. The recent heavy rain made the path from the golf club a bit difficult. Good job that was the extent of the 'off-road'. The hill out of the park and the short one soon afterwards can catch out those who haven't been here before but at least you'll know what to expect next year. And if you do come back I'll tell you a better route from the Sands to the Castle. Even without my injury I wouldn't have got anywhere near your 1.24. Excellent effort on a course which isn't exactly flat. Thanks for coming to Carlisle. Here's to next year.

Well, the weather was good. A bit cool to start with but not surprisingly it seemed to get warmer the further I ran. No pb for me. I think that those days are gone and as I found out today you cannot hide from Achilles Tendonitis over the full 13 miles. I thought it would hit me at some point but six miles in was a bit early. The look on my face as I limped over the line in 1.54 probably told its own story. A sensible person would not have started but having failed last year I wasn't keen to do the same again. No worries, plenty nurofen and no running will have me sorted soon. Despite my own issues I think the event was a great success again. Good course, plenty support. I know I'm biased because I live here but I would be interested in others views.

You beat me to it. Off-road? You could also have mentioned that the route offers the opportunity for runners to run past a fine traditional football stadium. Anyone from Bradford may welcome this opportunity more than most.
