Folks,

I signed up for 26.2 miles of Dublin marathon running yesterday, just hours before the entry deadline closed.

I have written a theme song in anticipation of this years event entitled 'October Pain'. The lyrics and melody will be the same as November Rain by Guns and Roses with the word November changed to October and the word rain changed to Pain.

The choice of theme song was a close contest with the 90's chart hit 'Seven Seconds Away' a close runner up!

I thought a great! athlete like yourself would bike out, do the 18 mile run and bike it home.

I have no problem swinging by to pick you up if no one is coming from town.

Right what time are we talking then - 8:30 in Portlaw?

We all know your form farmer boy - if there were any sheep in your back garden then the poor things weren't there to keep the grass down!

Hey Martin, it's not my fault I couldn't get my hands on a lawnmower to cut the grass. I couldn't actually afford to buy one Smile So I reckoned the most effective option was to get a few Lambes in to graze. To my amazement, the Lambes didn't graze a bit of it, but instead found the tallest grass and hid there for a couple of weeks as well :-)

Good evening all, whats all this about, copperman it's all taticts Cool it was bad enough that two of ye rolled in to Kenmare together on the bikes for the last 20 miles..... the jury is still out on this one! never mind having a third person in the group as well. I am for ever giving advice to copperman never heeding any of it e.g take it a bit slower on the swim save himself for the bike Very Happy Dillonger you were the dark horse at the weekend, the grass was very long where ever you were hanging out the last few weeks no work seems to be the way to go!!!!!!!

Actually I did not think of that Copperman. In actual fact Copperman, I blame you for this. I'm told from a reliable source that the King of Kilmeaden accelerated relentlessy whilst passing you Copperman, gaining a total of 25 seconds in the process. Why didn't you just turn around and cycle in the opposite direction Copperman - maybe then he wouldn't have accelerated so much. You've a lot to answer for boy! bounce

Thanks for your support Dillonger, although if he had stopped to enquire after me you would have beat him!?!?!?! I presume you had not thought of this.

In retrospect it could be interpreted as a drug induced rant, possibly post traumatic stress following Kenmare! I apologise if I have caused you any upset, beyond the obvious of wininng the last race of season! By winning I should be clear there were indeed 60'ish people in front of me, but lets not bother counting them!

Copperman I agree with you, that was no way for Martin to pass you :-) He should have slowed down a bit to make the blow less severe :-) And he could at least have asked you if you were feeling ok? yeah? Basketball

Indeed at times we all have to work! Obviously you being logged onto the WTC website in working hours is contributing to your idea of working. Secondly what is this 'spickles' thing? Did Geri and mad Mel C refuse you to join the spice girls and this is some reprisal? When I asked for an explanation frankly I was more confused.

Perhaps in your 'leisure time' you could come up with new lyrics for say,,,, "I'll tell you what I want what I really, really want .........."

Some suggestions that spring to mind are:

1) To beat Stefan in Kenmare

????? As suggestions go that's about it really

And Kirwan I expect no smart replies, show a little restraint. Not like your attempt at world speed records while passing me in Kenmare!

Thanks

Jayney, Portlaw will be packed. Think I might set up a water station - 20p a glass. Pay for them carbon wheels in no time.

I'm signed up for Dublin as well, so if there's anyone slow looking for a training buddy...
