Fine running, Cal.  Do you think it's the absence of the whole race day experience that enables you to run better?

 ....and, for Nessie, Iron Man kitted out in seasonal attire.

 2011 - Crosby beach: coldest daytime temperature in UK: -17.8 deg. C.  And did I run?  What do you think?

Thanks, Hazel.  Yes, although I've never actually counted all one hundred!  First red Santa suit noted last week - one year, at least half of them were similarly kitted out: quite a sight!

Thankfully, after various forms of intervention several years ago  - possibly A. Gormley himself - 'Another Place' is now permanently installed on Crosby & Waterloo beaches.

Yep, good, thanks, Hazel.  Does seem quiet on the thread tho'.  Stay well, Nessie.  Thermometers risen the past 3 days, so I can risk the roads to the coastal park & beach.

Always in shorts here!   And yesterday was no. 338 of Streak Mk 3.

Well run, Cal!  Those *slower* training miles had a good impact.

Great terrier wrangling, Hazel!

Nessie, I thought I ran early....    1404 miles so far this year, and I'm over 40 up on my 1500 annual target.  Hidden ice on minor roads led me to favour the grass, prom and beach the past few days.

As I don't go to running events these days, I like the more long-term diversion of a yearly mileage target.  Best recently was 2200 two years ago.  Interesting to note I wasn't doing half that when I became a keen runner 25 years ago.

Nessie, how did the overnight forest event go? 

Impressive form, Pig100 - and a very sound parkrun time, Cal.

Team Hazel was well prepared!   There's always that uncertainty running after dark - but we keep head out.

That's a super time for a multi-terrain HM, Metalhead

4 miles round the Marina & boating lake: really quite mild.  45 miles ahead of the pace for 1500 miles in 2016.  The Streak helps

Nursing historical knee niggles atm but the Streak abides: 318 days. 

Clumsy as a hopelessly clumsy thing last night on beach, prom and trails.  Head torch batteries were giving up the ghost.
