is pretty epic.

It's a solo sport, don't expect others to help you! :)

Although Paul did massively put me off in an urban race in the past by telling me I'd missed a control when I hadn't... maybe Paul is the problem here...

Us oldies need to take our vicotries over Phill any time we can get them. I don't think I would be helping my immediate competition on an event like this. CSC final would of course be a different matter. As it is Paul was having a good day celebrating beating me at the night event.

Phil are you sure the hip is not cold related? mine gives trouble in the winter. I always run in shorts under my long bottoms and if it's really cold I have a set of cut off over trousers to put a windproof layer into the mix.

Oi.... I'm sure this is slander from Phil and Mark ;-)!!!

And I did tell you at no.20 that you were going the wrong way and I was stood on the wall.... you just didn't believe me!!

And as Ifor says, taking the scalp of Phil and him in a night event all in one day, I am feeling smug this evening :-)

I'm glad people have reacted - was wondering if anyone bothered to read my diatribes.

Ifor - i hope it is cold related! not sure what's going on tho the osteo reckons it will take a while to settle down .I feel I'm always a week away from full recovery - which shows the folly of the optimist. If i was 22, not 52, it probably would settle in a week (or a day).... but we get older..... and creakier.

Scrappy Doo - slander is spoken .I've merely libelled you ;)

I will retract the slander of earlier: "start 5 minutes after me, you sod!" was indeed , never said. I can pay damages of 50p. Any more - see my lawyer.

Well done all on night event! :)

I'm glad to be of entertainment! Occasionally i really go for it - like this time ;)

I am rarely as fierce or angry as i may come across in the written word, though.
