I downloaded and listened to my only favourite running podcast this morning – MarathonTalk to discover that I got a mention in the first section.

Unfortunately it was in part for my failure in the Bridlington beach ‘beat the clock’ race at Bridlington last Sunday (I’ve said Bridlington twice now – 3 if you include that one… I probably ought to just go back and delete one of them but that seems like far too much effort!) … But also for my Daredevil plans to redeem myself which I alluded to in my post a few days ago…

    Enjoy your 5 mins. I’ll extend it for you by making sure I listen to that one at the weekend! Get well soon.

    Totally brilliant idea for the timebomb challenge. Does your wife know you’re planning this? My partner would probably drop me if I did that and wasn’t back in time.

    Can’t wait to hear how it goes.
