Jim Important Hangover request

Posted : 11:24
All helpers and marshalls.

We cannot currently trace the box of marshalls tops so please can you all bring a reflective vest to use.

Thanks

Looks like there was a glitch with my chip and Clevedon are going to include me in the results. Only wish I'd fiddled my time now. Probably the only way I'd have beaten Rob this year, but roll on the new year...

Fortunately there were 9 runners between you and I at the finish so at least I know you weren't referring to me you slow coach! Too many mince pies on Xmas day for you me thinks!

Yes I was aware of young Martin just behind me but I was trying to catch the fat bloke just in front of me.

Cheers Bryan. I've e-mailed their webmaster. I reckon I was about 135th on their provisional results. I made my time as 26 mins 38. The plan was to catch Mr Skeen on the line. Oh well...

Please contact Clevedon AC to query what happened to your result. What time did you record? The published results for the Clevedon race are in a provisional status so it's not too late to get you added.

Is anyone else missing from the Clevedon results or is it just me?

And there we have it! Gareth Hiscock has one hand on the Barry Hotlegs cup but will he bottle it and allow Jim Hayward to share the honours by not turning up at Clevedon on Boxing Day? Who knows....but I'll bet there will be a few nervous glances over their shoulders tomorrow.

Club Kit....Thanks Jamie for the reminder. This has been discussed at the club committee and to overcome some of the objections about the vest, we now provide a racing vest and racing T shirt both in yellow club colours(not the blue training shirt). If you do not have either of the above please see me. Shorts can be either dark blue or black. No excuses now for not wearing club colours when competing as a member of Weston AC. Any questions please speak to me or send me an e mail.

Posted : 15:53
Following on from Jamie's note, I am writing to advise that the new club underwear will be available to pick up after the Tuesday training runs. The tasteful yellow thongs and Y-Fronts must be worn by all runners wishing to claim points in the club championship in 2009.

Also thanks to Neale for organising the run but was unfortunately too ill to take part. Congratulations to Kev and Gareth on the LM club place wins and hats off to Kev who very thoughtfully passed his place on to Chris who is keen to run with Pam next year. A very festive gesture!!

We would like to thank everyone who helped make the Cracker a huge success yesterday. Without your support there would simply be no Christmas Cracker, there are so many people who worked extremely hard even when the pressure was on. Our special thanks go to the committee members who again delivered in all aspects and worked from the early hours until late on Sunday.

Finally we would like to thank North Somerset Council (Darren Mason), their contractors Birse Coastal and the Grand Pier owners. This time last week it looked as if we would not be able to use the beach as it was still a building site with no access. All of the above promised we would be able to proceed and delivered on all of their promises in time for Sundays race. All too frequently the council and large organisations are criticised but this weekend they really helped us all.

Please can you drop me an email to confirm if you will be able to help. I need about 15 more marshals to make sure we have a safe & succesful race. Thanks Jim.

Unless you have devised a fiendish new scoring system I think you have a few gremlins in the adding up. I would like to have 900 points but as I have only done 15 races I do not think so

Rich - firstly you should know by now that you can rely on the Mercury for accurate reporting and clearly it was an innocent error mistaking me for the Welsh table tennis player who rose to Olympic standard in the 1920's. Little is known about my names sake other than he was born in Mertha tydfil, one of the17 children of Myfanwy and Geraint. In an attempt to better himself and earn some much needed money to help his parents... you see on a day trip to Port Talbot his poor Mam had taken fall on the Co- op escalator getting her boot lace caught, this then dragged her leg into the workings and she sadly lost it, a tragedy made worse by the fact that she had cycled down from the valleys and couldn't get herself home for days. Despite trying to return to work it became clear that working down the mines with one leg was never going to work. Any family would find difficult to recover in these circumstances yet Robert knew he had a talent and encouraged by 1920's Welsh national champion Jones the butcher he would practice day and night on the white marble slabs of Jones's shop until he made it into the Olympic squad. Sadly world titles and medals seemed to allude him yet for me its a honour to share his name. A little known story yet impressive that the Weston Mercury should believe the 1950's sporting legend, who would now be 108 is alive and in Weston donation money to charity..... a simple mistake we can forgive them for. Secondly it was a cold morning and both the club vest and shorts are beneath my suit.... im surprised you should ever doubt I leave the house without them on.

A nasty viral infection called Red eye ( train tunnel syndrome ). Early warning signals are a bloodshot eye , if untreated this infection can lead to Premature Baldness, impotentcy and Dementia. Apparently athletic types are not so susceptible but unathletic types are prone. Please if anyone knows anybody who could be at risk stop them now . Don't Die of Ignorance...

Aha ze big secret is out ! Claudine has been spotted visitng an address in Kewstoke, after much undercover work i have found out that she has total immersion treatment in a tub with someone known only as slackbladder . We know this slackbladder as the Cockney sparrow. Her trainig regime has been copied by local triathlete Go slow Colman and the results are plain to see. So anybody who is struggling with times and would like to boost performance get down to Kewstoke this Wednesday coming...

We have an exciting opportunity for someone to become a race director. Roger would like to hand over the Beacon Batch race to a fresh pair of hands and we are therefore looking for a replacement. We would like, if possible, to have someone pretty soon so that we can inform the fell runners association by the end of October. The club needs fresh faces and new ideas and these handovers are a natural evolution for the club. In volunteering you would get the help and support of Roger and I believe may well have a keen assistant, if required! Please drop me an e-mail if your interested in directing a race and supporting your club.

Cheers for the mention Brian. It was Victor's fault - he put the crazy notion into my head and I just couldn't shake it out! Sorry for causing some of the other runners concern thinking that I must be injured or something as I was going so slow and even walking in parts, and thanks for their support. Won't be trying that again. Quiet Victor.

I would like to thank Bryan for putting on another very succesful Muddle, hope we raise lots for R.N.L.I . Also a little bird told me that a certain triathlete from Bleadon was due to run today. No show Colman as he is now known did not turn up obviously confused it with a Prom race or was busy watching the shopping channel.

Hi everyone! Just a quick note before I concentrate on generating the race results to thank all WAC and RNLI marshals, helpers, friends and family who helped make today a real success. I have received a note from John Battersby who ran into difficulties on the route. He wanted to thank those that were involved in helping him in his hour of need. He mentioned a lady who gave him a bottle of water, Shaun Callaghan (WAC) and a lady who drove him back to Charterhouse. Thanks everyone.

Many thanks to everyone who has volunteered to assist with the organisation of the Mendip Muddle. Please click the links below for the tasks assigned to each helper and a course map with marshal positions. Your assistance is greatly appreciated and we couldn't put on this race without you. I will be down at Hutton Moor tonight if anyone has any questions. Please note that we are using a different room for the race number pickup/last minute entries/memento collection this year (the wooden terrapin at the rear of the centre). This provides us with far more room and should result in less congestion.

With regards to the excellent work Mrs Green has been doing at Brent Knoll, has a winch system also been installed to assist those who are less able to ascend the hill? I recall a certain Cockney Sparrow needed help a few years ago whereby lots of Weston AC males were lucky enough to be required to man handle her up those final few steps!

I am sure those planning on doing the Brent Knoll race will be delighted to learn that the top stile on the Knoll (just before you do the circuit of the top) has been replaced so it is as safe as houses. There is even a nice little gate for dogs to get under. AND I have cut the brambles at the top of that bit of the path AND some of the steps have been replaced. It's wonderful! However, tne NT is not responsible for the dodgy stile at the top of the orchard which is probably as bad as it ever was.

Standing on the sidelines hurling abuse does not constitute marshalling! I feel 3 points is rather excesive and not earned! I think i would have probably had more support from Victor and the Goofey one!

Men of Weston AC hang your heads. The women athletes are putting you to shame. Not only ripping you to pieces on the message board but also getting the top spots in the results (Pippa and the Claudine Machine top 2 @ Bristol Half). There's a very good chance that the Womens A team will beat the Mens A Team in the Prom Series. Maybe bald Rich Coleman could be your saviour.

Claudine; I hope youre not suggesting there was some skullduggery afoot on saturday night? I'm sure Victor will be gloating about his victory for months to come, probably taking all the credit as well from the real brains of the team Geraldine. But they did win fair 7 square. I thought I gave all the other teams a chance with the Steve Ovett connection 10 point bonus. I thought no one would have a clue on that! How wrong I was. I admit I did give the odd cryptic clue to the kids team though. Maybe next time I'll get you up to do the 4 opposite questions. Still I'm glad you enjoyed it, Good luck on sunday in the Bristol half, give those Kenyans a run for their money.

Think his birthday is actually Sunday but either way it's a good enough reason to have a social in town... The dragon at 7.30 and then sample a few more local taverns with a possible curry for those who want one.. Matt did NOT say that he would buy a round so it's well worth turning up.

Dear webmaster. Please could we have a new link called 'injury clinic', or something similar? Where members can recomend qualified profesionals that have done a fantastic job at healing sports injuries. I have been to see Alison Huxtable and her team at the High Grove Clinic (osteopaths),and a physio at the Birdwell clinic in Long Ashton this year, and would like to recomend them both. It's always a bit hard trying to find a good injury clinic, and a recomendation really goes a long way. Thank you. Si.

Diary date. Hard to believe, as thought he hit it a few years ago but young Matt is hitting his big 30 on August 17th and we thought as he has done so much for the club it would be nice to take him for a few drinks on Friday 15th August. I know thats a busy week on the social calendar but if as many as possible could come it would be great (as he doesnt have many friends). As true gents were not making it exclusively a boys night out so all welcome..

Burnham 5K; Just to let those who may've liked to have done the Burnham 5K last night but opted for the social run instead know what it was like incase you fancy the next one - The course is 3 reps of a circular, virtually flat lap, well marshalled with drinks at the finish. Although highly placed, myself and the other WAC runners I spoke to afterwards ran a slower pace than we do in the Prom series - perhaps due to the heat. We all appeared to have enjoyed it though and are looking forward to the next! Well done to Chris (3rd man) and Fran (first lady).

Hash on Sat. at my house. There is the choice of either a run or walk of about 1.5 hrs or stay at the house and sip a drink and wait for there return. Its for members and partners with a BBq after the run. For all those that have never been, it is a 6 mile run (approx) on the East Brent footpaths. The trail is laid with flour for you to follow with several false trails so the fast boys can get a bit more exercise finding the right trail, which helps to keep the group together, there are also some regrouping points.

Re recent COACHING SESSIONS with Tim Pollard; Thanks very much Tim for the recent sessions. The sessions were presented in an informal and tailored way and each activity was made to be fun and informative with scientific refence but in a practical, down-to-earth method. To improve our running we may need to run more often, further or harder, but as well as that, changing how we actually run and knowing what kind of preparations, recoveries and diet will aid our running is equally as important, so having an input from somebody with that kind of knowledge is invaluable and I'm greatful to Tim for sharing his. If there are any future opportunities for Weston AC members to take advantage of Tim's sessions (free or otherwise), then I highly reccomend them!

Hi Dave, although Weston AC are affiliated to the BTA we do not have individual member affiliation. Therefore we benefit from there insurace cover but you dont get any reduction on your entry fee. Its a bit like the current situation with England Athletics you are only eligable for the discount if you have paid the individual affiliation fee. Hope that makes sense.

A big thank you to Rich Colman who on the day was not well enough to do the run but still drove me up and back, and supported me during the race. Oh yes we had 3 Elvis impersonators doing the water station on my stage which took the mind off the pain for a while.

I too would echo Kira's and Neale's comments. I will even offer to do the first leg again as it may be a bit easier having some idea where you are going. It would be good to get 2 or 3 teams like a number of the other clubs had done, that way you can support each other at the start and end and also arrange transport between you. I was very grateful of a lift from the 2 Avon Valley runners back to the start. They had got up at 3:45 to travel from Trowbridge. Who said runners aren't mad.

I would like to echo Kira's comments about Cotswold way, even though my leg was by far the easiest it was very enjoyable ,extremely well organised and it would be nice to have a real go at it next year with a couple of full teams. So if you want to stop me moaning at you all ,get it in your diaries now...

Well done to Gerry and Teresa in suceeding in getting a team even though it was incomplete to the CR. I know Teresa was aching to run it and will be there next yr! Only when you are there do you realise how much clubs are enjoying the day in such a great team event. It would be great for the club to turn out 2 teams next yr to get that support - Lets put it in the dairy early and commit!

Yes yet another PB from Claudine last night and she has now started winning prizes!! Also well done to Pam who had another first v50 although not recognised on the night as they had her in another catagory. Well done also to all you others that also had pbs, perhaps i might get one some day! Chantelle Run is from Paul Snellings House, you need to get onto the road that goes past the Webbington (if its on your right) then keep along that road for about 1/2 mile and look out for a sharp right turn Rackley Lane you should then see us along that road.

You all contributed to make a very successful event out of race that ten years ago had less that forty entrants. ....................................... Time to hand the reins over to someone else so if you have a serious interest in off-road running and would like to be the director of a managable race please let me know.

I wish to add my comments about our Master Baker this week. Of the three offerings presented by the Cockney Birds Nest, only one was a true cake. The banana cake was excellent and can attract only praise. Offering number two was shortbread, which is not exactly a true cake....it falls into the same category as the Pam Withers Cookies which, as we all know, provoked outrage last year from the likes of Phil O'Pastry (RIP) and spawned running commentaries of cakes for the rest of the season (yawn). Which brings us to offering number three......FUDGE! This is a sweet...confectinery....candy! The only way it could pass as a cake would be if it was still in the freezer in its cube like state. As it was, it had melted at room temperature into the dangerous substance as described by our Chairman. We must not, however, discourage the Sparrow from producing "cake" offerings on an annual basis. After all, what the heck would we all talk about for the rest of the year (apart from Rachael's King Alfred's Torment charcoal brickettes)? So I ask you all to embrace our Cockney Sparrow when you see her next. Thank her for her efforts and wish her better luck for next year!

Fudge it!

Posted : 11:26
Lovely banana cake Ginnie.. You must pass on my thanks.

As for the other, what skills you must have to create such a culinary masterpiece. Never before have we seen such a substance which can take on so many different forms. I mean a cake that transforms literary before your eyes, and furthermore should there be any left over, you can always use it to attaching fixtures back onto the wall.

From Birds Nest to Birds Mess... wonderful.

If anyone is thinking of coming into Weston today DONT!!. The Boulevard has been sealed off following a terror alert. It would appear that at about 9.15 a suspicious and dangerous package was delivered to Morgans Estate Agents..... A brave member of staff opened it but tragically passed away shortly after being exposed to the substance. Disposal experts were called to the premises and said that they had never seen such a horrific for of terror and they will use all recourses to hunt down the culprit and make sure they never strike again.....The substance has now been removed but the clean up operation may take some time.

Minehead Running Club have a run on the 27th July called "Exmoor Sea View 17" which is a nice cross country across Exmoor. It costs just 6.00 which is a bargain. You just need to get to Minehead where a bus takes you to the start and you just have to get back to your car where there are showers and a big spread they lay on. It is more of a good old Sunday run than a race, in beautiful countryside and breathtaking views. I've almost persuaded Pam to do it but thought it might be a good day out if a group of us went. I can bring entry forms on Thursday if anyone is interested or you can go to www.mineheadrunningclub.com and download one yourself.

Thanks to all who have put their head above the parapet to represent the club as a team member for the forthcoming Cotswold Way Relay. We have sufficient to make a Mixed Team (Min 3 Ladies running) but not enough for two teams as we had hoped. The team is as follows: Stage 1 - Jim Wotton, Stage 2 - Malcolm Gammon, Stage 3 - Sara Styles, Stage 4 - Steve Baxter, Stage 5 - Rich Coleman, Stage 6 - Fran Bird, Stage 7 - Nick Thorpe, Stage 8 - Gerry King(Team Captain), Stage 9 - Kira Thorpe, Stage 10 - Neale Jarrett. First Male Reserve - Adrian Noble, First Lady Reserve - None. Information on each stage, including Rules, profile, GPS downloads, descriptions etc are available on the cotswoldwayrelay.co.uk website. Unfortunately teams need to be submitted asap and whilst I know a couple of you were going to get back to me we have to draw the line somewhere - sorry. May I wish you all the best and suggest you try and reccy your stage before the day. Good Luck.

Cotswold Relay (It all seemed like such a good idea 2 weeks ago!) Numbers have dwindled due to people dropping out or issues with navigation. We have sufficient numbers for a mixed team (minimum 3 women required), however, we also have a lot of people who have expressed an interest but havn't definitly committed, so we could have a Vet men and a Mixed team. These are the people who have definitly committed: Kira, Nick, Malcolm, Steve B, Sara S (Stage 3), Neil, Gerry K, Fran/Dean, Adrian N (Stage 7), Rich Coleman. These are the people who have expressed an interest but havn't committed one way or the other as yet: Rachel, Sam G, Pam, Chris D, Brian (Stage 4), Annette, Jim Wotton, Chris D, Rich Churchill. **** Please could you have a look at Cotswoldwayrelay.co.uk and let us know if you want to do it and if so your preferred stage. We will then give the outcome and name the team by Sunday evening. Once we have sorted this, Gerry King has said he is happy to help sort out the logistics based on previous experience.

RACE CANCELLATION - The athletics world was in shock yesterday upon learning that the King Alfred's Torment race would need to be cancelled this year as the baker responsible for the race mementoes was unlikely to be providing her usual burnt offerings. One race marshall was quoted as saying "What's the point? No burnt carbonised flap jacks, no race! Simple as that!". Another race marshall was heard to say "Moist lemon drizzle cake just doesn't cut the mustard". In order to avoid disappointment to the tens of runners entered into the event, race organisers were looking to substitute the burnt cakes with lumps of coal as they are sure nobody would notice the difference.

Good point Claudine... infact didn't even come into the pub for a slice before heading home... giving Gerry the oppertunity of doing her hamster impersonation all night (stuffed cheeks with cake) before taking MORE home for Neale. Or was it eaten in the car on journey?

I don't think it was a reduced turn out which meant there were more cakes for everyone. It was purely down to the fact that Kevin didn't stay!!!!

Im glad you see the web has changed since Matt took it over (or was this sarcasm).

He is also developing many new and exciting updates which will be online in coming weeks one if which is to see who is putting messages on the board. Matt knows how much the committee and majority of members appreciate the work he has done and will, hopefully, continue to do for us all.

A runner from Northumberland Fell Runners is looking for a team mate (partner) for the Lowe Alpine Mountain Marathon on the weekend of the 7th June (http://www.lamm.co.uk/). His intended partner is injured. I am not sure which class he has entered but that can be changed on the day anyway so don't be put off by that. He is not an exceptionally fast runner (age 45+) so if you are then you may need to curtail your speed, otherwise he will happily slow down for you. He is a good navigator, so if that isn't your strength then he will cover that aspect. He is also a doctor so you'll be in good hands if you get injured! If this interests you then get in touch with Will Horsley (wjvh@btinternet.com) at Elvet Striders (my other club) and he'll forward your contact details etc. (I'm doing it with my younger daughter - Liz)

Hello all, I hope that someone can maybe explain if there is a speedy recovery for my suffering!? A couple of months ago I noticed quite sharp pains in the side of my left knee whilst running off road, however after stopping running for a bit I had no more problems when running again. It then reoccured again and after rest from running was fine. I then has these sharp needle pains again in the side of my knee when I was running the Taunton 1/2 marathon (2 weeks ago) after 2 miles and after 6 it was really hurting - like stabbing pains. Stupidly I didn't stop and finished the race in pain. Ever since then I have had problems walking without pain. I can now walk slowly about 100 yards without too much pain after which it just gets worse. Any advice on what it could be or tips on how to speed recovery would be gratefully received. Thanks Sally

Neil, I meant to tell you last night but we could both harldy breath after the lovely prom race - I've pretty much finalised a route for social run starting from the Sidcot Arms, it's a loop encompassing some nice views, woodlan paths and only one nasty-ish hill and decent. It should last about an hour or so but I'll go out with the Garmin next week to make sure. Cheers.

RACE FOR LIFE. Sunday 11th MAY 2008 For those of you unfamiliar with this race we, as a club, are asked to organise the route for this race. We need assistance with setting up the course and marshals for the event. Entries have closed and we understand there are 4000 entrants so if your blood pressure can stand the sight of 4000 women on the move please contact me. We do need as many volunteers as possible. Set up team 8o'clock north end of Tropicana with marshals briefing at 10o'clock same place. Thanks Roger.

Anyone know of where I can get a Doctors Certificate to allow me to run in the Paris Marathon, as my wonderful Doctors Surgery (Riverbank Medical Centre) is refusing to supply me with one as they don't want the risk of being sued in case of anything going wrong. So unless I can find somewhere else to provide me one, otherwise, I can't run.

BATH HALF ANNOUNCES EXTRA LOOP Bath race organisers have decided to offer the chance to run an extra loop after Bath Half - officially (and I think timed) - making the distance 18+ miles. This is aimed at people training for marathons. They have done this in combination with the charity CLIC Sargent. It is open to people who already have a place (but you need to ring Running High on 01225 422255 to register interest) and if you haven't already got a place there are a few extra places through CLIC for which you have to get some sponsorship (tel: 0845 602 4770 or email: run@clicsargent.org.uk.). I've asked Malcolm to put a notice about this on the WAC notice board at Hutton Moor.

All credit to Matt W for getting the website working. The necessary change to a new server caused a lot of unforeseen problems and Matt has sorted them out. We'll aim to keep things running smoothly from now on!

First time I've looked at a computer, nice to see we are on air again, many thanks to Neile & Gerry for a great evening @ Beachlands. I've seen Jayne down in Te Anau whose still running well & sends regards to all. Fantastic view over lake watching the aircraft coming into Queenstown airport between the mountains, plus the jetboats going to the gorges and the white water rivers while having our breakfast! It's good here.We will try to come back for the March PROM,if we tear ourselves away!!
