Hello again! Just got myself upto date on the thread after a summer on the trails...

4:35 at Abingdon on Sunday, a lot of work needed between now and race day!

Race entered, City Lodge booked, just need to book flights and train...

The new date will mean you can only do either Comrades or Western States - not both...

It opens up lots of things in the second half of May though - like Passatore 100...

JAR - everything crossed for you. I hope CMA will be kind to you.

I've done a few trail runs and a couple of parkruns but like everyone else the speed hasn't returned to my legs (was it ever there?!).

I'm going to Chamonix for the Mont Blanc 80km next weekend but because of all the snow left up on the higher passes, the organisers have announced some course adjustments taking out some of the peaks over 2000m... So hopefully it will be easier than last year when it took me the best part of 24 hours to complete the course...

lowrez - 33 photos! The photographers loved you! I'm still stuck on 16 - and none at the finish line - which is a bit of a blessing in disguise - no photos showing my time - as I set a personal worst for the Down...

PG3 - a great race report - you had me hooked after the first installment cliff hanger yesterday - anxiously checking back to see when we'd get the next installment... Really enjoyed reading your account of the race.

Great running everyone.

11:46 for me. I got the time I deserved for the training I didn't do...

Happy to be going home with a medal and my 100% start/finish record intact, albeit just!

Not sleeping much as my legs are very unhappy...

Thank you for the birthday wishes. I was hoping to keep it a secret...

See you all shortly at Spiga!
