Don't you just hate people who scoff at you, as a first timer, planning to run FLM.
I don't even get it that badly either, as people know I run, swim and cycle quite a lot (and that I'm a TA soldier too). I cringe to think the kind of sarcastic and deriding comments that must be chucked at the vast majority of first-timers, many of whom haven't done any serious running before.
It wouldn't be so bad, but one of the bods doing it is a PTI at work!! Talk about encouraging .. I don't think.
Right, whine over. I shouldn't complain. The deriders are providing a major source of motivation *grin*.
