Morning All ..... I've got a sore body after acing VLM in sub3 yesterday and a sore head after going on the lash after with HIAHS, Nells, Nodster, Pottermoss, Running Rodent, Stuchbury, Kenno, Mr HIAHS. Had a right laugh out on course yesterday ... My clubmates were all over it and then it was just pub after pub. A miracle that I made it home in one piece. Great running by everyone and fantastic support.

btw I forgot to name drop Radar Sal who was also at the boozer with us with her OH .... it was a proper little gathering. Next big get together is Vitality 10,000 (formally Bupa 10,000) on Whitsun bank holiday Monday .... if anyone hasn't signed up it closes in a couple of days

amazing efforts and results from yesterday .... after running a marathon I went on a drinking marathon which started at the red lion followed by All Bar One in waterloo and then the Great Northern railway tavern in Hornsey. I am a drunken slosh pot. Can barely function today. Gonna have a proper read later and post something a bit more meaningful. Just dropped in to tell Phil my time .... cause he paced me to another sub3 but more importantly my finish time was a palindrome .... 2.58.52

Right then, who wants to swap their sample of Lancome moisturiser out of the goody bag for my 2 pints of  free beer voucher for use in the Red Lion? I don't drink beer and I'm pretty sure most of you fellas don't use girly moisturiser. 

i'll take it off you hands .... i'll pack the sample now

I see the champ start runners are starting 10m behind the elites this year (pity, I liked crowding the elites on the start line) and we'll get chip rather than gun times for the first time

....can't believe that Prince has died, what a year

shocker about prince.

Maybe they are keeping the champs start people back a few paces to stop crazy people like my club mate from leading the marathon, which he did in 2013 at 800 metres! (incidentally he just came top brit and 17th overall at MDS)

Very good of you to read back, ES.  Sorry to hear of your woes and fingers crossed your careful recovery can continue to plan.  Better to hit 30 miles consistently for a few more weeks than to overdo things.  I will see you in Chicago - I have also stumped up my $210.

blimey Jools & ES off to the Windy City. We're out of sync on the majors. I'm in NY in November for no 5 and targeting Chicago in 2017 to complete the set. I was looking at the WMM wall in London EXPO yesterday imagining my name up there. Spotted a few names I recognised including me mate Steve who ran them all sub3.

The cost for international entrants in the States is very high ... 30 or 40 bucks more on Boston and Chicago, but New York is the ultimate Skankity Skank at about 100 dollars more. I understand extra postage costs but NY takes the wee wee.

just had a little 5 miler, squeezed the pace at the end and nearly got up-ended by a road sweeper person who decided to veer in front of me very suddenly.
