I understand his protocol better now. I still think its a poor way to estimate what it's trying to estimate.

Nayan, My humour may be lost in the text

Personally, I think it is good to have time away from the ladies. Isn't that why we run in the first place?


haha ok I had missed that indeed.

There is, by the same token, a certain kind of man who gets offended and threatened by a few women having their own running event. This kind of chap is not in the majority, thankfully.

I'm organising a corporate team for s 5k race this July. After the race got sold out I had a few stragglers ask for places so I set up a waiting list. One particularly keen person wAiting happens to be a woman.

Now as it happens one guy has to drop out due to holidays so his place is up for grabs. 'Job done,' I'm thought. Except that when I offered it to said woman she got sniffy and said she's only interested if I can get three places since she wouldn't feel ok about running on her own without her mates. She knows full well we have a 35 strong mixed team.

It's only a small sample but I do observe that women are more likely to be nervy about getting involved than men. It shouldn't be that way of course but that is what I see. I think women only events are a way of dealing with this problem but I do hope they will at some point become redundant.

i encountered this at the VMLM expo and got a copy. I quite like the idea - at the risk of borrowing one of their tailgates - theres a load of stuff out there about how to run, but its nice to read a bit about why people run.

Up to a point - the twat moaning about how regent's canal towpath has lost its charm for him and feels like a treadmill deserved a shoeing.

plus 9 quid per trimester for well written stuff is better value than 5 quid a month for a load of adverts and recycled crap. Yes I'm talking about you RW.

Because, for the most part men don't feel as intimated by the other gender when going for sports - so there isn't really that much need beyond a few special case events.

1)Massively overrated.
3) liked to hoof it long.
Despite that he had his moments. I remember watching the Istanbul final with some Liverpool fans. Very entertaining.
I suppose hd deserves some props for sticking with his club.

I think this will eventually coalesce around 'whigs' and 'Tories.' More or less what we have in the US Ithink. 

Which I suppose leaves Farage and his chums as a sort of Tea Party / halfway house for the BNP.Say what you like about UKIP (and I do) they are top quality entertainment value - one MP and they still manage to have a backbench revolt.
