Erm, PMJ, isn't this a bit of a soft target for you?

OO - it's OK.  My Adam's apple and deep voice can often mislead people here.

Looks like there will be a new autumn marathon in contention in Birmingham next year.

I don't know, Neil, as I managed to get a place with my time.  I am really looking forward to it though.  Poacher sells it well!

MsE - how's the prep for Berlin going?

Thanks for asking, Gul.  I am trying not to get injured before I start my build up in a few weeks.  All this sitting and studying is really not doing me any favours. Niggles mysteriously appear from nowhere.  Sitting is dangerous.  I am convinced of it. By the time Berlin comes round, I will have finished this course and don't plan on any more qualifications for a while.  Too much running to do and I'm not getting any younger!

Just had a quick read back.  What a lot of gutsy performances from you all.  Really well done to those who hung on for really respectable times and those who braved the day despite sub-optimal training.  I have so much respect for you who can manage that as my body wouldn't cooperate without the requisite coaxing.  

Delighted for Lorenzo with a PB at the ripe old age of 4X!    Gives hope to us all that PBs can still come.   You too, Moof.  You've come a long way since the man who sat on the loo looking at his belly and thinking something has got to change. 

Sorry to hear about the DNS, Jools.  I have had two of those recently but not as late as the day before the race!  You will be so fit without any of the battering though.  

Speedy - you are a champ.  You really are.  That you got out and did that race after your difficult year. And without a cat to keep you company.  Sending you a big hug.

Well done all. There are too many of you to mention you all now.  And I am a sort of absentee thread member too so not familiar with some.  Some really strong performances.  Keep on keeping on!

Dropping in to wish all the very best of luck tomorrow.  I'll be tracking those of you I know so don't you dare give up when it gets tough. I'll be watching your every step :: stern look::
