I thought I was the oldest there for a minute0 thank god for NE- my ultra last april was my 50 th birthday present, and my first marathon was "I have to do this before I turn 40, or I never will!".
Knackered today after on call activities kept me up til nearly 3am, and still on duty- so running today was recovery on a tready, (I'm in the recovery week anyway), so 12 miler tomorrow after my oncall finishes- hopingthe weather is better than forecast , so I can get out onto trail, rather than along the canal, as I did a flat canal- side MP run last weekend.
Enjoy the wedding slowkoala- I'm not sure I see the point of having a big "do" if you decide to get hitched after 20years, although the legality of the status has certain advantages, I think (have tried to persuade my my other half of this, but he doesn't see it).
