Calf guards

Used to wear them but gone off them now as they make my feet hurt.

Foreigners seem a lot more friendly than the locals.  We get a lot of foreign students here in the holidays and they usually smile when I come across them when running.  Much more amenable than the grumpy locals. 

Suppose I won't be voting UKIP then...

Any advice out there

Physios can get the diagnosis of flat feet wrong.  One diagnosed me with them, subsequently went to an orthopod who said they were fine.


Gait Checking

Forget the gait thing it's highly questionable anyway.  However always worth running in the shoes for a bit on their treadmill to see if they are comfortable.

We sleep easy at night because rough men (and nowadays women) stand ready to do violence on our behalf.  We need the police.

I don't remember there being any pacers when I did it back in 2013, Green Start. Were they only introduced last year?

Vibram bikila evo.  The perfect long distance shoe.

Surrey Half Marathon

Excellent race.  Plenty of support.  Was hillier than I expected. 

Only minus is that there could have been more sign posting to the race itself.  Was difficult to find if you didn't know the area.
