Ja ja big birthday coming up this year, the wife wanted me to have a MASSHOOF birthday bash.

I on the other hand had other ideas, not a huge fan on BS parties I've decided to do something stupid instead.

Seeing as the Eden project marathon is on my birthday this year and it's been 23 years since my last marathon I thought WTF why not.

Just signed up, looks erm lumpy and I know will be cold, two of my least fav conditions :lol:

    I have a couple of "medals" for swimming from my army day but hate it with a passion, could never stay in the right lane or breath at the right time, swimming is for the fishes.

    Hills.

    Lots of them.

    Wind.

    Maybe rain.

    Camaraderie in droves.

    Pasty and beer at the end. One of each only this time :lol:

    Hopefully the guy with the slices of Marathon/Snickers and jelly beans will be en route again somewhere - lifesaver.

    Good man.

    Wowza!

    If it's the Bday I think it is then i: you're older than Greg/s and ii: your the same age as my Dad. Do the Etape (next year).... At your age you really should have got everything you've wanted/done everything so choosing/buying a present is tricky....

    A true scalp is not only overtaking someone but leaving them stopped at a set of lights. As you, who have clearly beaten the lights, pummels nothing but the open air ahead. ~ 'DondaddyD'. Player of the Unspoken Game

    Training? Nothing was said about training - only foreigners and professionals train, old boy :wink:
