Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

22nd Half / 3rd Launceston Half. Cornish GP race. Toughest Half in Cornwall. I decided I needed to do a marathon on this day so I didn't need to worry about any more LONG runs - as it was 4 weeks since the Discovery & 5 weeks to the Isle of Man marathon. I contacted the organisers and asked if it would be ok to go round TWICE. Eh? well, only unofficially ofcourse, but they would leave out some markers, if I needed them. I inevitably ran the actual race a bit more cautiously, but don't think I would have been much faster. The problem was the finishers "medal" - TYPICAL!!! In 2003 they chose to give everyone a lovely runner on a stand! Not something you can just slip into your bum-bag and carry on running - so I had a break for 14 mins to go into the Leisure Centre to put it away with my kit - Ah well. It was much warmer for the second half - still I did it in 2:36 coming in to the "Finish" which had disappeared, as if nothing had been there. I thought of the Dalai Lama, it is his birthday - and the people I met at the Neolithic who were climbing the highest mountain to send PEACE messages
