Lumsdoni - Seriously? Did they deflate it?

That is very poor!

The corporate sponsor do-dah doesn't help this event, people expect more of it. It's actually run to raise the coffers of Marshall MKAC - they do the organising and take the benefit. I've lost the newsletter that says how much they manage to get from it.

It's possible that in the cold etc, I didn't notice it, I do remember though for the first time ever thinking, why isn't there a big inflatable finish sign. I may be wrong, I think I was wrong once before, in the 80s

Oh well, just looked at the photos, and unless they put any more up, it would appear the photographer stopped taking pics at the finish line, 80seconds and 6 people before we finished, can't blame him in that weather though. We needn't have tried to put a brave face on at the finish now ;)

No pics of me. But then I would look like a very angry drowned rat in most of them!

Got something to say?
