I noticed but was never going to mention it. I was going to let you give your clean living the credit rather than the profile!

Yeah, Bazo was racing the Commonwealth Games marathon runner and just announced Scottish ultra team member, that very same Ross Houston. Link (roll over me to see where I go) (I'm just posting this cos Keziah from our club is in the women's team - do I get some reflected glory. I coach her, I'll have you know. Well, I shout at her when she's doing her tempos. Similar?)

Enjoyed that today, well done Bazo, great time, PB showing great progress, esp given horrendous conditions. Someone used the expression "sleet needles" in a blog that I read recently. Very apt for today's wee race! Thanks for your analysis of my pace - I'm hoping 7:2x should be doable next week, so will try and start steady and dig in at the end for a 3:15.

Some great solid long runs being posted, and some impressive speed. Lovely wee ad hoc sub 3:15 for BS! :-) G
