i cant see them needing one next year either, due to the large number of gigs they have just played... its not as if they will be rusty :lol:

the next foreseeable situation i can see that might warrant one will be the 30th anniversary on 16th feb 2011 :idea:
arrrgrgghhhhh - i'll be 41 then - i cant wait that long :eek: :? :( :eek:

i have done it three times - 2004, 5 and 6. in 2007 i didnt as it co-incided with something else and last year i left it too late to enter. ideally i would like to do a PB but i have to also take into consideration that i will be 5 years older than the first time i ran it :lol:

thank you :D

although on the flip side i am at least a stone in weight less than in 2004 so that may counteract the aged bones :lol:

i need to get miles on the road done but wierdly enough i dont actually like running outside - i much prefer the treadmill :?

but the race is so much fun and a good day out ;D

my husband wanted me to do it again as he enjoys the spectating - and if i am honest with you he enjoys a day not to do anything himself but see me run 13 miles whilst he has a couple of latte's and bacon rolls :roll: :lol:

*cough*

just to dig this up again (because i saw an amusing newspaper headline at lunchtime...)

http://www.thesistersofmercy.com/error404page.html
"Platform 1: west to Criminal City and The Slough Of Despond."
i know he means manchester & liverpool but did we ever confirm which was which?

because i think manchester is the "criminal city" :lol: :lol:

and liverpool fits the definition of a slough generally and of the slough of despond

that's what i though at first, but the definition of a slough ("a secondary channel of a river delta") suggests liverpool, doesn't it?

or would liverpool be a "primary channel"? thus making manchester the secondary one (ie: further along the ship canal)?

"It is the low ground where the scum and filth of a guilty conscience, caused by conviction of sin, continually gather, and for this reason it is called the Slough of Despond." Mr Bunyan (and thanks Wiki!) Figure if I said this was either Liverpool or Manchester, some people might be a bit miffed... ;D
