I see that tubeguru hasn't improved his sense of humour lol. Today I join the ranks of Geoff and Iain in becoming a regionnaire of londone. With my vast amount of South West done and three coming in the next week perhaps that will be my next goal. Didn't start very well bit far back to sprint off line but got into a nice rhythm and got into 20m range. This I'm well pleased as I have been struggling with health and injury problems this year.

Back to Nonsuch today as public transport isn't great. It had pretty much de-mudded since ten days ago. I still took it a bit easier but was six minutes faster due to not sliding about like a hippo on ice skates!

I'm still eagerly awaiting your inaugural run Michael, your name is on the database but yet to be activated :D
I believe Michael did have a go at Victoria Dock before the last R15 but decided against completing....
Yeah, Don't hold your breath!
Just to advise that I've removed you from the data sheet for now Michael, it's pointless me checking each week until you actually start running.
Let me know when you do make your inaugural parkrun and I will add your details back in. :D

All the threes, 33:33. (Stopwatch) BINGO!

Not a completed Stopwatch BIngo, but another number nearer. As if to prove how random this is, the time by my own stopwatch was 33:54.
