Went to the track - but ended up coaching rather than running - lovely evening and nice to talk about running.

Saw a lot of armed police in Newcastle today but I don't know if that is common or not. I am worried about son & Dil going to Manchester on Friday for a concert - open air somewhere but that would be letting the terrorist win if we stopped going about our business.
Today I have walked for miles

I now have a fully functioning TV :-) I'm sure I'll regret that soon. So many channels, so much rubbish on.

Well done LG. The best thing we can do is to continue to stick two fingers up at the pathetic morons who do and try to encourage this sort of thing.

I don't have a TV at all, Corrah, for that very reason.

Decision to be taken on the Great Manchester Run in the next 24 hours, City Games going ahead on Friday. Now they are saying the situation is critical I do wonder if they will go ahead but I so hope they do :-(

About This Thread

Welcome to the 700 miles in 2017 thread, everybody welcome :-)

The thread motto is:

'700 miles is neither necessary nor sufficient'

All you have to do is run about 1.91 miles per day or 13.46 miles per week or 58.33 miles per month and take a picture when you get to 700 miles of either you or the spot you reached the target or both if you want to. And if you go under or over 700 miles nobody will mind.

Join in the chat on the friendliest thread around - all things discussed and sometimes even some running is talked about.

Happy running :-)
