I can't imagine anyone would travel overnight to a race and then forget their trainers, number or HRM...

Ive been halfway to Glasgow on route to a semi final when my mate realised his ticket was still on his fireplace. Randomly the guy behind us on the bus had a spare ticket which he had to purchase.

Baz / WW, you've both read my Abingdon blog. Yours will be very different. I was still a relative rookie back then, I made plenty of mistakes back then that I'd like to think I wouldn't make now. I corrected those wrong-doings several times over the the marathons I ran after that. And you've both got bags more experience than I have even now. Go out and enjoy the glory leg, trust the process and nail it 💪🤜🤛

Got something to say?

"""Guys n Gals - I implore you to think about the effort, wear an HRM but learn about RPE and mostly put away ego and thoughts about natural pace.

Speed is earned through smart running"""
