Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I was quite worried that I might not finish first in the inaugural Hove Industrial Estates parkrun today, given that I didn't start until half 9, but thankfully I was still first to complete! I also have an issue with the name of the run, given that it crosses the route of the old Devil's Dyke Railw...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

First finisher in the inaugural Stanford Estate parkrun in Hove, notable for being the first street-based parkrun that I've run! 28:20 finish, didn't push myself that hard, and saw a total of four people on my run.

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

We have Saturday 29 February coming up. Run a parkrun if you can because the next Saturday 29 February is another 28 years away. Ithcen Valley parkrun if you fancy it Nick? That may depend on the weather. Forecast is absolutely dreadful. I'd anticipate a mud-fest at Itchen Valley (I've been to that...

A transport question, inspired by yesterday's release of station usage data...
Among National Rail stations that had at least 100,000 entries/exits in 2018/19, what is superlative about Blackrod, near Bolton?
It's the only station that shares its name with a Parliamentary title?

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I was determined to do Lancing Beach Green this morning, come hell or high water - a phrase that was very nearly literal - this morning as I missed the opportunity last week due to work. My headphones died five minutes in, my running jacket absorbed water like a kitchen sponge, I didn't check my wat...

You're both right - the Welsh side have more Italian players than the Italian side, and vice versa!

A further clue: Excerpts from Act IV, Scene 6 were incorporated into another work of art - it's that work of art I'm looking for.
That'd be I Am The Walrus by little known indie band The Beatles, correct?

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2019 - 14th December - Chiswick Park

I now have the added challenge of going to a panto at 18.00 Oh no you're not! :D :D :D Annoyingly I'm not going to be able to attend as I'm going to be up in London drinking heavily with friends, however depending on the state that I'm in around 6pm I might pop my head round the door of the pub and...

Knocked 41 seconds off my PB earlier today, and my wife wasn't even volunteering at the course for me to show off to!
Wow you have been on fire this year James :D
Thanks! It's my 7th PB since May, I'm really enjoying it!
