      Ouch, glad there's no serious injury to you or the bike. Sodding motorists, they don't understand that they have the potential to kill someone xx

      Glad you and bike are okay, too bad we only find out about their days off after the fact, it would just be great to know about them ahead of time and plan accordingly.

      Good for you! If you can run in those cold disgusting conditions, you can do the final 7 km of the marathon. (first 35 are comparably easier).

      I heard there are 2 races Ina 'thon, 1-35 km, and then 36-42. Yor long, cold, hard run will be great for the second part!
