Morning all!  Breezy in Southsea today.  We have opened our Christmas presents and I won the Parkrun (First first - i'm very pleased with it). 

Out and back course 5:40 pace downwind and probably only had 5-10 sec gap at half way but soon opened up into the wind even at 6m/m.  Not a race, I know, but having the confidence to run at the front trying not to worry about getting caught to concentrate on own performance is a rare event so i'll take it and hope it's a sign of things to come.

If you're wondering, we did Stafford Christmas with folks last week, today we have done our own thing as tomorrow we fly to Granada, Spain.    I hope you all have a good Christmas and get loads of running in!  It'll be the XC Champs before we know it.

I'm trying to work out what shoes to wear as it will be quite hard underfoot.  I wonder if Salomon Speed Cross would be ideal.  

Nice list Running Eye!

Well done Dan A! Mixing stories up but it is one that sticks in my head albeit with the wrong protagonist! 

You're on a theoretical 11 hour flight to Los Angeles...

We all know this thread will be gone in the morning... like the groundhog looking for his shadow!

So who's MM in old money?

Maslow hierarchy of needs (plus wifi).  I just thought about this.  

1hr to get out house.. what to take/leave (prob essentials + iphone charger and emergency war escape bag - hasn't everyone got one)

1 day to get out... only a car to fill...

1 week to leave... 50% to leave behind by volume...

Interesting what becomes important and how useless the "cloud" is.
