Well done on another ultra Debra; I have just, on a whim, because the fake news outlet alerted me to it, so it can't be all bad, entered the K2B. I was born in the "B" so its not a surprise banter about it was on the fake news outlet. This one requires you to be in a team of 10 to take part, my better 9 are all associated with Animal Refuge Furness, my team captain is head of the refuge. They appear to be astounded that I have dropped in from the firmament completing their team and that I will be "running" it. The K2B is mainly a sponsored walk about local charity. The refuge will get two thirds of what I collect, the rest going towards staging the event and other core charities associated with it. A vast army of volunteers gather to stage this event. I have run this 3 times back in the 70s before marathons were proper big, before London was thought of, its where my running roots lie. I don't know why I haven't been back since. The team that support me on daft ultras are going to support me on this, they are sniggering down their sleeves at what a walk in the park it will be; I have had to remind them that this is The Lake District and on a bad day its bloody serious work so no lollygagging is allowed!
I am sure I can guide the IAAF to provide me with a letter of disdain If not, I reflect on how the K2B could become an easier annual pilgrimage; I paid for Comrades on MasterCard; I'm sure they would be sympathetic in providing me a refund due to the T&C having been moved from under my feet this year...
Max, I love the steak and chips bit
Terry; will you be out supporting Debra and I at Boston? Looking forward to when we can run marathons with you again, it was brilliant to finally catch up with you in the finishing chute with Running Rodent at London last year. I know that wasn't strictly how my support for you was meant to pan out but it felt like "A Mountie always gets his man" moment even though strictly speaking I had run out of road by then
I am visiting Salford University fashion dept on Wednesday; they have signed up to producing the Gay Ellis costume I plan to run in at London this year
Some of you out there know how stubborn I can get, and I'm digging in for warfare here. I'm not joining a club, I'm not affiliating myself with any bodies, except Sigourney Weaver's. At the moment it looks like I'm going to have a nice weekend sitting on the beach eating ice-cream in Durban and probably never visiting ever again after that.
Becca, that was a mighty fine run in Tokyo on Wednesday afternoon I visited Salford Uni and they are going to make me the Gay Ellis outfit in time for London, unless of course the IAAF insist I must become affiliated to run that. It might even be ready for Boston Lincs, unless of course the IAAF insist I must become affiliated to run that, and so the dog chases its tail ad infinitum...
Bike It - I love those lists - what a consistent world this is
