That's something else, well done! I just don't do heat at all so I can't comprehend running a PB in Las Vegas. Scottish summers are too hot for me! :-)

I'm now on a 3 day streak which is pretty decent after a shitty previous two months. Hopefully I can put some decent miles down in October, build it up again and start 2015 like I did this year in decent shape. I'm thinking about maybe trying an ultra or two next year, which in itself is not unusual. I always think it might be something I'd do, but I seem a bit more committed to it this time. A local guy here who I've run with a few times just won the short series SUMS in his first year of ultras and was second overall to Mike R, so I think that's gave me a bit of a buzz. Ideally I'd try the Highland Fling, but it looks like Glasgow to Edinburgh would suit me better dates wise.

Davie - get yourself into the fling, i can vouch for that after this year. I've also been part of a support crew for G-E running 20m and found it to be pretty boring.
Nice to see things are looking up on the running front though. Sometimes it's good to mix it up a bit to keep the motivation:-)
Yesterday finished my highest ever monthly mileage of 353m which was tough so kudos to those here that quite easily knock in 100+weeks!
Planning on a mini taper for the Glasgow half this week followed by one last bigger week then it'll be a proper 2wk taper for Frankfurt. It's starting to become real again!!
Wishing good luck to those with marathons this coming weekend or racing.

I did think that might be the case Stoosh, so might have to do a bit of reorganising to get that weekend free.

Good work on the big miles. Looking good for Frankfurt :-)
