Bless you and your pony tails, Minni.  That'd be splendid.
Thank you very much.

Well done to all the marathon runners.  Especially you.  You were the best.
I've enjoyed reading all the reports of your derring-do and heroic adventure.  I'm very envious.

Meanwhile, I'm feeling all blue boo-hoo.  Two days after the Coastal numbers were released, I pounced, sloth-like, on the application form.  Sadly, it seems I was two days late.  So, Poacher, Minni, OO et al, if you hear of a number looking for a deserving home, then grab it and give it to me instead.  Thank you.

Congratulations to the resolute Joolska.  I don't know how many '3:0somethings' you've run over the past few years.  About 28, I think?  Fantastic tenacity and determination.  Kudos to you.

Nicely done on the "bit of honesty", Also-ran.

I hope there was a particularly gripping episode of Homes Under The Hammer on tv this morning, to accompany your extinguishing episode.

Gul - Please allow me to apologise on behalf of the thread.  Obviously, we've all let ourselves down and, quite frankly, I'm truly embarrassed by our ingratitude.  It's now almost 5 hours since your cute little gag and you still haven't received so much as a smiley face in appreciation. 

I hope that, in time, you'll find it in your heart to forgive us.

Shame your chiropractor was no help, Also-ran.  It's the only thing to have helped me, after 18 months of badness (different chiropractor, obviously).

I was only popping in here to boast about my longest ever bike ride at the weekend - 27.5 miles.  But now, having read about the exploits of others, I don't think I'll bother even mentioning it.  Two hours and 8 minutes.  Don't think I'll mention that bit either.

Happy birthday Moof.

Why the Nordic poles, OO?

Splendid photos, Slokey. 
(I think we could probably have worked out the differences between swim & bike etc without the accompanying titles, but it'd be churlish to mention that.  So I won't).

Good luck in obtaining domestic clearance for Round 2.  But are you sure that referring to Mrs Slokey as "the wife" is likely help matters?

Sure thing, Ant.  I'll send you a pm, as we say around here.

Oooh, arranging to meet strangers off the internet. 
And I thought my luck would never change...

Ah, how lovely.  This is my first check-in here for ages, and it seems to have been well timed.  Fantastic stuff, Slokey.  I really enjoyed reading that.  So, was that about a 4.5 hour marathon?  I assume this is where you're aiming to gain at least 30 minutes in your next attempt?  Hopefully the home friction has eased and your "noticeably different" body shape and Mrs Slokey are now very happy together.

Ant - welcome to sunny Southport.  Where are you based?  If you haven't already done so, then head through the pinewoods towards Formby, or through the sand dunes between Ainsdale and Birkdale.  Or on the trails between the Hillside & Birkdale golf courses.  All good running routes.  Most half marathoners will have run the local half last weekend, so won't be heading to Lytham on Sunday.  I mean, what sort of mentally unhinged lunatic would want to run both?

PMJ - Stop pretending you're travelling to secretive and mysterious locations.  We all know you're really sitting in your garden shed playing Dungeons & Dragons.

Happy birthday Jools.

5 miles yesterday, 4 today.  All being well, I might reach 20 in a week for the first time since, oh, way back when.

That quoting box looks a bit peculiar.  But I don't know how to fix it.  Sorry.

Negotiating the Sub 3:15 thread - it's a bloody minefield.

Minni wrote (see)

How do those with calf issues X train?  

By running up and down in the pool.  It's very tedious, but not quite as tedious as the turbo. 

KR - I loved your literal interpretation of "the guy sitting on his shoulder". 
Negotiating everyday conversation must be a minefield for you.  I don't mean an actual, real-life minefield.  I just meant.... oh, never mind.
