Idiot club runners!!

Damn. Thought an interesting thread was developing for a change. And its a bloody wind up!

All the news reports just adding to the weight of the 'Water Mafia' like you can't function without two gallons of the stuff each day! People in the UK should be bloody happy with their tap water, alot of other people around the world would die for it.

Don't get me started on Evian with their fcuking weird baby adverts. Scummy industry.

Running Sunglasses

ANOTHER vote for Sunwise. Buying any sunglasses for over £30 is a rip off tbh, just because the buggers are so easy to lose  and/or break - as mentioned above!

Guys just a small reminder for tomorrow that you do not need to wear

Never understand this commando thing, bloody horrible feeling if I have to do do it (e.g forgot to bring pants to the shower etc..) Always seems to be made out to be a 'manly' thing to do...

Always interesting when you ask people who do it how many pairs of trousers they have. As I presume they have to be washed every time you go commando?

How do you mentally break down the mileage?

Just run to somewhere - perhaps where you can have a shower and then a pub lunch? Always a nice thing to look forward to at the end of a long Sunday effort!!

Or get driven out somewhere, dumped out the car and then run back home.

I like that one. Although 'I am a self absorbed, ignorant F**kwit' would be better. Quite hard to fit on the standard number size, though..


Once again the snobbish arrogant view on people who wear headphones rears its ugly head.


No pal - the RIGHT view. But if basically just being a good citizen and obeying the rules makes me a snob, well, so be it. If people can't race without headphones, they should try another sport they find less boring....

Fine. People wearing headphones can wear a sign on their backs:


End of problem.

Pacemakers for big races.

Lots of pro's and con's - but in the end, they're not doing the running for them, so it doesn't bother me. Bit of shelter from the wind perhaps..
