Rennur - if you are in need of the best sports massage ever, I have details for someone in the Bay Area. Just pm me. She is incredibly talented and effective.

I am going to let Minni tell you all about it as it was her gig and I was very grateful to have been invited along to make up the numbers.  Here is a photo of us on the podium for now.

I think had we done some training for it we would have fared better, Minni. I think you did brilliantly especially considering your Chunder Run!

We were the only two not to have done any proper training and to arrive bearing our ageing bodies complete with injuries.

Gerard - (hug) life's a bit rubbish like that but I think you just have to look forwards not backwards. And come for some support from internet strangers which is typically available in never ending quantities at any time of day.

SJ - you are a beast! Ggggggrrrrrr!

Loved loved loved reading your report, marrows!  Excellent result and AG win. In the few triathlons I did, I used to place quite well in my AG and OA but was eventually put off by all the gear and swag being waved around.  I returned to the comfort and simplicity of running. Speaking of which, the Achilles are behaving with some excellent Graston therapy applied with brute force by my new chiro, TAR.  Cheers for asking. How are yours?

HUGE WELL DONE, Marrows!  That is a fantastic time for a HIM!  Report is due I think...

Blimey, Badbark. Thank goodness you are alright now. I do think you were compromised going into that race.  Well done for listening to those who told you to stop. You know it was the right thing to do and that is certainly a valuable lesson learnt there.  It seems with ultras it is not about the finish line but the journey there.  Recover strong and fully.

Go Badbark! Here's hoping you have the race you deserve after all that hard work.

hello VTr!

marrows - what protocol are you following for your Achilles? I'm curious as mine have been chatty of late. Keep it easy as I'm sure you will.

Poacher you are a beast.  Well done!  I am a bit nervous of entering in 2015 but Minni may never forgive me if I don't...

PMJ well done on achieving your sub-18 5K goal so soon in the year!

GD - bad luck.  Do you think you prefer the training to the racing?  You seem much happier when running than approaching race day. I think I am more a runner (hobby jogger?) than a racer to be honest and the thought of a race unnerves me rather.

Quick read back and I am keeping fingers crossed that Gul and Lorenzo feel fighting fit very soon. I am sure it is a minor blip for both of you fine specimens.

marrows - are you more of a glider than a gazelle?  I have a friend (1:21 HM) who ran 2:47 at Boston this year but her incremental improvements are getting smaller and smaller as she is a shuffler and glides.  She is convinced she has nearly reached her maximum paces with her run style holding her back.
