    Thanks for sticking that up, the first 2 sold out before I saw them and am diving in Cornwall the first extra date in Sept they put on.

    I got this which is big enough for work plus uni kit, the side straps are pretty good at compressing the bag, so although is it quiet large a lot of that is space that can be pulled in. Only had a fun runs with it though.

    Maybe I'll get as far as filling out the form and writing a cheque, if he's really against it I send him on a cooking or butchery course which might have more benefit for me!

    Sounds like a club membership might be a good idea, think his nearest one is Maidstone harriers and looks positive from their website. And maybe some more socks!

    Anyone used a running coach? Are they any good and would it be worthwhile for one or two sessions?
    Looking for ideas for birthday present for my brother, as he seems to have all the kit he needs for running so was think this could be useful as he's just starting training for his second marathon.

    All just a power trip for those leading ULU unfortunately, was clearly going to go this way as it gets them in the media spotlight.

    Interesting, with hindsight what sort of distance do you think you should have done?

    I'm following the plan from the beginers marathon book (mentioned in this thread somewhere - proper lurker me), goes up to 18 miles repeated a few times, but am hoping that as I should be a few weeks ahead of schedule I should be able to fit a 20 mile run in

    Police having a field day with cyclists going through the no cycling sign at the top of Theobalds road where it joins bloomsbury way.
    Amazing how many carry on through that way despite being able to see the police constantly pulling people over.

    What we need now isn't something that gives a monetary return, it's patronage... donations. We threw up a basic page here to process it: signup.microco.sm/ but the essence is that we'll reserve a username on every site that ever runs on Microcosm in return for your help whilst we get through the next month or two whilst the due diligence and then clearing of the investment funds happens.

    Quoting for anyone else that hasn't got around to sorting it out yet.

    Maybe the link could be added to the first post to make things easier.
