    Anyone else like me silly and do the half or full marathon yesterday.

    Mmm I am paying for it this morning , legs seized up and sore. That will teach me to run half a marathon with only 2 weeks training. So who else did it and how are you feeling today?

    I only run when I'm chased - or something is on fire at work

    Mohawk that is a shit load of perfectly good heartbeats that you have used up for no good reason other than to get to the other end of a road that you could have driven down.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Im with Spanners and Rushy on this one
    Sometimes,not often but sometimes you see a cyclist who looks like he is having fun on the road. You NEVER see anyone who looks like they are enjoying running
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    I love running - run a few half marathons myself.

    I however, do a hell of a lot more training than two weeks!

    What time did you do?

    I was too busy complaining about Tamaki Drive being shut for the second weekend in a row (ITU last week).
