Bravo Padams, well toughed out. I did snoop the results and saw you made the podium, any bling of note?  Hope you manage to enjoy a few tipples later.

Charlie.. a chap in my club ran Manchester in 3:08 and VLM two weeks later in 3:09.  Two days after that he ran a lumpy local 10k in 39:45.  He's a spritely 39 year old so I suppose our recovery rates differ from person to person, distance to distance etc.  

Alan B.. storming track 10.000m there, very encouraging after your layoff.

RB.. very impressed!  I guess you didn't manage any showboating at the end.

DanA.. good speed at the Park Run!

Bains.. best of luck with the re-location & mojo return.

Steady return from chest infection here, Park Runs in the last month have been modest but encouraging.. 21:45, 21:15, 20:57.  Starting to up the miles again now I can breathe properly.  Park Run plus 5.3m yesterday & 10m today.

Any of you in the south come across a young lad called John Sanderson? (Guildford & Godalming club).  He's a student at York now and has knocked out a couple of Park Runs at York not far off 15 mins and a 69.00 half.

LMH.. the Vale of York half - nice flat course on closed country roads, this will be the 3rd year it has taken part.  Plenty of parking at race HQ on an aerodrome near Sherburn In Elmet.

Blimey it's suddenly like Girls Aloud on here, a warm welcome to all.

Ros P..  Dan A was speaking very highly of you in the pub post-race.  No doubt he will be looking forward to his coaching fees from your prize booty.

Louisev.. I suppose 'don't rush back' is the best advice after surgery.  Your previous form won't disappear altogether so just build up the miles again if all seems well.  Where are you based?  There is a nice flat half up here (York area) in September if you fancy a go at sub 1:30.

LMH.. very interesting approach to training, certainly seems to have worked for you.  I know PRF & Hannah are almost the opposite - daily singles/doubles around 8:30-9mm pace but they race regularly - Park Runs most Saturdays, anything from 10k to a Marathon on a Sunday & even a midweek race sometimes.  They both keep popping out marathons in the 2:45-3:00 region so that obviously works for them.  Keep up the good work, I see you beat the 1st W55 by 49 seconds so you have a few years to go to maintain the standard.

Al P.. I know it's not really pantomime season but I can't help saying 'behind you'

Congrats on the sub 3 Jimbob, well earned!

Great report that Muss, sounds like you didn't leave much out there!

RB.. all the best for the 53 miler, is there a lunch stop?   

TR.. wow, some rise to elite status for LMH!  Take a bow young lass.  I did have a nosey on her PO10 and she only seems to race distances between 10m-20m, hardly any 10k's or Park Runs in there.  Is it all 'big picture' stuff with lots of LR's & MLR's focusing on the big event?

Pleased it's nothing too serious Jools, still can't believe the timing of it! 

Special mentions to Selbs (nice PB!), CC2 & TT who all put in a good shift despite having a lot on their plates recently.  I trust you will be taking 2 bottles into the shower today TT?

Amazing to see so many on the thread close to 2:30, hats off to Coro, Al P, Ryan.

Shame you were in no state to celebrate properly Dachs, congrats on the PB anyway.

Really pleased for you Charlie after a different build up this time, also congrats to Muss for keeping you company most of the way, great time fella!

CD.. classy run as usual, amazing run of sub 2:40's in your portfolio.

Tick Tock.. bet that sprint finish hurt!  Nicely done on the sub 3.

PP.. top pacing job again, good to hear of some grateful members of the possee!  Re your finish position, there is a note on GFA for 2017 that times are subject to tweaking.  From what I've read too many GFA'ers this year apparently so doesn't surprise me. 

Spectating was a frustrating experience.  Station closed en route to Westferry (14.5m & 20.5m) so had to re-route.  Also had to take a circuitous route back due to massive queues.  Finally thought we could get out of the sardine can but as we approached Westminster the driver announced that they wouldn't be stopping there due to overcrowding!  Had to get off at Green Park which meant we were at the wrong side of the finish/course.  By the time we got to the Red Lion I guess I must have missed some of you, nice to have a natter and a beer with a few braving the cold though.  Much less stressful to run it I reckon!

Jimbob.. close call with the roadsweeper, mind you if you had collided with it at least you'd be guaranteed to turn up at the start all neat & tidy

ES.. I did wonder where you had got to.  That's a fair old collection of niggles and bad luck, wishing you a speedy recovery.

Cripes that is a small bag!  Getting a post race snack, clothing, etc in that is going to be a challenge in itself.

Good to see the excitement building, I'm really looking forward to it - proabably because I'm not running!  I'll be spectating at Westferry (about 14.5m) so I will give everyone a shout who I see.  Should be at the Red Lion with a pint and a bag of Werther's.

Blimey, dodgy shorts & hair colouring??  Trini & Susannah will be showing up soon.

I can report that DFC is alive and running well.  3rd place & 1st V40 at my local inaugural 10m race on Sunday.  Race winner was Paralympic runner Wondiye Indelbu.. 51.00 isn't too shabby for a chap with one arm!
