  9. First time London for me, running for Combat Stress. Here we go again, 3 months of hardly any alcohol, loads of pasta and long Sunday runs..........
     
  10. I wouldn't go that far!
     
  11. Looks like I may have blown it this year. Ended up in A and E yesterday for a bloody groin strain and am now on pain killers and various other little pills. Got to have a scan and physio too. Bit miffed to say the least, still I'm a damn site fitter than I was 3 months ago. I reckon I've till Wednesday to bite the bullet and sort it out.
    Bugger it.
     
  12. What about married runners, there will be a few of them too.
     
  13. JD, really sorry to hear that, fingers crossed for you. Groin strain eh :wink:

    I've just heard that French security workers are striking on Fri 24 Apr so airports and railway stations will be closed. That's when I'm catching the Eurostar over ........
