The weekend ahead - May 25th 2012


What ? Sunny. You have got to be kidding me, or was that just 40 days of rain over then ? I see no Arc.

Here's the weather forecast then : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZMUAd7OJc8
(office environment friendly if you're wondering).
Bono Estente indeed.

This weekend will be just the two events for us - the Folkestone 10k and the Bookham 10k (this time without snow).
Both are still taking entries so beat the deadline.

Fokestone 10k (Kent coast)
http://www.folkestonecoastal10k.co.uk/


Bookham 10k (Surrey / Leatherhead-ish, easy from M25)
http://www.eventstolive.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=42&Itemid=55


Usually we cover about 10 events per month, so far in May it's been 20 - making for a very busy time for everyone here in the office and at the events. We could do with a day off. Any day. Please nominate one for us as it's been 7 days a week since mid March and I've not been for a run since :(

With over 155,000 images uploaded in May alone - it's easy to loose track - so here's the galleries for May in a handy list in date order so you can find yourselves and friends for that Friday feeling !!

Some readers will be dissapointed by the lack of rain this weekend


Prices - because time and photography isn't free.
Recently I found a blog debating about the price of race photos and how it might be cheaper and why was it "so expensive" ?. Given that it worked out as a reasoned debate and touched onto the unknowns which I think I helped to fill in - I thought it worth sharing it with you here:  http://bit.ly/Foot4ward-race-blog the blogger is a good runner - and his most recent blogs explain his build up to Edinburgh which also makes interesting reading. So Hello to Lewis Birchon - I hope the Edinburgh prep and taper madness is still going well !

So for now, Scorchio, don't forget the sun-block, hat and long sleeved white top for the weekend. Big white compression socks have never seemed so appealing.

Don't get sunburnt
Until next time
