Macca - I will get on photoshop and get the colour changed...
HA - yes Ive been following the spat Mo v Geb. Shame really as they both seem really decent guys in real life.
Met both in real life and both top guys especially Geb. Chatting to all the other runners at the start line and very chilled. Mo was a bit more forcused at the London 10k (I was behind him at the start), and not as chatty.
It does seem there are plenty of witnesses and evidence to support Geb, and Geb offered to pay him what he was robed and got the police involved . What more did Mo want from him? I don't understand? For Geb to get his cape on and personally find the offenders ? Mo didn't even pay his bill after they took 50% off.
Also raises more questions on doping that Mo kicked off because the dope coach was not allowed in the hotel. Maybe it was his weeks EPO ...(not that I seriously think Mo is on the gear, but surely you would want to distance yourself from it). I know I do (I never got tested after Brighton BTW.)
The Mo/Geb situation is very odd. Bizarre why Mo would even chose to bring it up at this point, and now it’s opened a whole can of worms. Plus his antics on the treadmill that were an injury waiting to happen. I used to be quite a big fan, but the more I learn about him, the less I like “Sir Mo”. Meanwhile Kipchoge is zen AF waiting to tick off another win.
Good job you tested the beetroot Muddy! Glad I’m not the only one that finds it repulsive. I will have to try them cold FBT, good tip.
Good to hear from you JCG, getting any training in with twins to deal with is impressive.
Also good to hear from you Tom, hope all is well.
I’m going to do Mile End HPR as it’s nice and close (I’m staying by Canary Wharf).
Race numbers for me and SQ picked up in record time this afternoon. Couldn’t believe the huge queues to buy New Balance gear, and dread to think what they’ll be like tomorrow!
Off to see a talk on running and writing shortly, featuring (amongst others) Ed Caesar who wrote “Two Hours” and did a lot of the Nike Breaking-2 coverage. Should be interesting.
I see the wind forecast for Sunday has picked up a bit
Standard pre-race nerves HA, trust your training and that amazing HM PB, and you’ll smash it.
Yes it was the Tracksmith event SQ. Quite interesting, but ruinous for my wallet as they had all their new items for sale
I had an enjoyable, if wet and breezy, parkrun at Mile End this morning. Bit lumpier than I was expecting, but I was running easy so all good. Fingers crossed the wind will die down tomorrow - it was “lean in the wind” blustery at Canary Wharf this afternoon!
Good luck everyone, hopefully catch up with most of you at the yellow start, or the Red Lion afterwards. Please do say hi if you see me - I’m notoriously bad at spotting faces in crowds so if I blank you I’m not being rude!
