Oh thats allright then.  Im 46 and could definitely have done that time when I was 35. 

For a mile.

I might be able to do that kind of time if I was falling off something Smiley

Great Bristol Run this Sunday, anyone running this? Half temped to wear my Swindon shirt, but probably get laughed at.

They'll probably take it for a City shirt in the blur. And at worst, you can run away from them.

Note to self: You really need to stop leching at the fit birds in the gym.

Getting back in to the swing again now, as I always do at this time of year.  For some reason, the cool, dark mornings are when I enjoy it most.  Early 4½ mile run before work sets me up for the rest of the day.  Love it.  And I always sleep like a log the following night.

running in the summer heat and pollen is a pain in the arse.

yeah, ok, it's not exactly been a consistent  problem on the heat front.

Anyone got a positive result from the London Marathon ballot.  Unsurprisingly I didnt.  In a fit of petulance i've registered to do the Paris Marathon next year.  Anyone done that?  Is it the opposite of the London marathon with no support, just a lot of people watching and shrugging their shoulders whilst smoking gaulloise?

Why are you putting it there in the first place, causes enough irritation up the nose....

I did Paris in 2013. It's quite well supported, and a pretty route. The last mile and a bit is a drag but it always is.

Be wary of the locals handing out drinks - saw one runner take one, take a sip then spit it out and say "c'est champagne"

Assuming it's still the case, but you need to get a signed and stamped doctors note saying you're fit enough to run. Have heard horror stories about people getting there's and overly fussy doctors, though mine was straightforward. And if all else fails, i doubt a Parisian volunteer is clued up enough on north wilts GP's to spot a well-done forgery

I've done the doctor's cert thing a few times, and can help out if necessary, but it's pretty straightforward if you get it signed and stamped before you head out.
