If you have a life outside of BWFC, then this is the place to tell us all about your toilet habits, and those bizarre fetishes.......

Nice to see the girls getting their own motor racing GP.

At least on the track they won't need to do any reversing, or parallel parking.

I know, I know.....
I wonder if they'll allow mirrors so they can check their makeup?
Camping over your way tomorrow Spotty at the Duke William in Matlock. Then Bakewell parkrun and a roam around the Peak District.
Don't forget to race through Matlock on your Harley, then puff on your e-cig in the pub, whilst sitting in Spotty's favourite seat! :wink:
Just seen this. Took dog out for an early morning romp over to Matlock but I'm now back in Cromford. There are a bunch of elderly women all gabbing away, one in my seat, so they've beaten you to it :| .
If you're in the Greyhound at Cromford before four o'clock (or let me know what time Saturday) I'll buy you a pint (no fxcking ecigs though) - I'll be the bloke with the laid back collie with big ears (the collie, not me).

I had no idea the Duke of William had camping. Watch out for those church bells if you're still asleep Sunday morning - the feckers have been practicing since D-Day and still can't clang a tune together.

I’ve heard there’s rain forecast Bolton on Saturday so no park run for you Bond.
My Parkrun aversion to rain is a myth, started by and perpetuated by LE. :whack:

Your aversion to Parkrun is caused by a few hills. Wimp!
More the fact that it’s 9am on a Saturday morning tbf.

She'd be fine in the Bakewell parkrun then... Not a molehill in sight, takes place along an old railway line, now a hiking and cycling trail. Flatter than a flat thing.

I was all set to do Bakewell parkrun last year, but too much beer and wine on the Friday night put paid to that! :oops:

Sounds like my kind of park run. If I didn’t run 5k in such an embarrassing time these days :(

You could try Stretford up here. The elevation in metres/km is -2/0/0/0/1. :pray: I reckon even you could handle that!

It was a bit moist. Mud all up the back of my wanderers away top. No big puddles though.

Lucky you! My long jump run way was one big puddle tonight! I’ve never been so wet at an athletics match. It absolutely pelted it down this evening. All the chip shops were shut on the way home too! :(

Given my pre parkrun meal was Mansfield dark ale and a large pork pie, I have nothing to contribute on the nutrition front.
