It was great to meet up at FGFA start and see so many happy faces in the Red Lion. Apologies if I asked your name or time and instantly forgot! Well done to everyone what ever you managed.

I ran 2:58:50 today and was pleased as I really didn't know what shape I was in, felt in nicely in control the whole way - so probably was in better shape than I thought. Will try to write up a longer report tomorrow but there will be far more interesting race report from others.

Time for more beer

Good luck to everyone, especially the sub 3 virgins and those going for PBs. Hope to see some of you at the Red FGFA start and others at the boozer.

Some light rain in London this morning which has stopped now and there is little or no wind. It would be nice if it was similar tomorrow morning - with the sun coming out over the Red Lion once we are all finished.

Nice to bump into Jimbob and you were looking fresh! As I said, I will be buying you a celebratory pint at Red Lion - assuming the fast guys haven't drunk the place dry.

TJB - great report and excellent run on a tough course in less than ideal condition. I assume you didn't need to wear the shades?

DrD - if you have never had lots of beetroot juice before, a word or warning - don't faint when you go for a pee (or call for a doctor) 

6 miles done and dusted. Off to pick up my number at lunch tomorrow.

Great report SJ and sounds like a well executed race.

Running Eye - you must have been whizzing through the field in the 2nd half. Well done of your first sub3 and we all know you are soon going to be much quicker in future.

Just looked up TJBs results. Well paced dude.

Rest day today. I might even treat myself to a glass of beetroot juice in the morning

Nice outfit Dan - I guess you are hoping for a cool rain free day!

Impressive parkrunning from  Padams, PP & MsPP, JAP


CW - looks like you in good shape and have every chance of a PB

Jools and ES - keeping virtual stride with each other.

KD - hang on in there, not long to go

I jogged round parkrun today and restricted myself to a total of 4 miles. Hardly seemed worth putting the trainers on.
