I f***ing told you so.


Would you ?

I think I attended the very first URWFRC social, the night before the Glasgow Half Marathon in 2002.  Very strange walking into a restaurant to meet 8 people when you have no idea what they look like.  Thankfully there was only one large group and most of them (yours truly excepted) looked very fit and slim. Great night.

I have had a forumite to stay before a race - although I can't remember if I'd met her in real life beforehand.  We may have raced together once, and then she stayed the next time - not sure.

I have quite a few FB friends who started out as forum friends, who I'd happily put up for the night.  But then, I've been on the forum for (eek) 14 years.  Any axe murderers would have shown their colours by now.......I think..

If you would shut up for long enough for me to answer your question, you might find that I can help you.

And telling you that something is "needed" shouldn't be met with a response of "I can always add it later".  No you can't - you need to do it now.  Or it won't work.

That's on Tuesdays, Dave, but please don't bring the hosts' private lives into this.

Agree with most of Brooks' comments, although I felt Katie's Rhumba lacked any emotion.  Technically well danced, but it was just a bit......frigid?

Jeremy was the right choice to go, but at least he's really put the effort and hours in, unlike some previous celebs. 

SFF - could it be that he turned his whole body and was therefore just walking forward? Watching ITT, there was an explanation that the feet should face forward, but the torso should face the partner (or was it the other way round) so he looked too square on? He certainly did look clumsy, although as others have said, his timing is always spot on and he's not missed many steps.

I wanted to hate Kellie and Kevin's Samba, but it actually worked.  Not sure how he managed the choreography - he's a genius.

Personally I'd only risk a DNF if I knew I wasn't right up to 10k, but then I'd never consider 47 miles in the first place!

The potential to do yourself real long term harm running 47 miles on an injury is very high - but with the get out clauses after 2 miles and 23.5, well........

If you manage to pull that off, I'll be forever in your debt.  But sooner rather than later would be even better, and save me a huge amount of stress and work.

Dear Funding Body,

No, it is not 'ineffective grant management'.  It's just that your reporting requirements for your piddling little sum of money are entirely unreasonable, and needing to know every time someone wipes their arse merely ties us down to working at a desk letting you know what is going on rather than getting out there and actually delivering the outcomes.  I would suggest that is in fact an example of ineffective resource management...


I feel your pain................

Either he hates it so much he takes himself off to the garage for a turbo session while it's on, or he loves it so much he sets the turbo up in front of the TV.
