  1. Love the way you have gone though all your athletes and riten a form guide...

  2. Cool form guide - very clever:)

  3. That's terrible news about Abi's marriage.

    Kym's next 5k will only be 21:12 - she hasn't run for 3 weeks.

  4. lol to Ewen's comment about Abi, sighing about me. Form - Looking at slow hobby joggers with horrific form with great envy. Likes pretending to be a butterfly in the water...

  5. It wasn't meant to be funny. I'm very worried about her. Must have been a short honeymoon.

  6. "Aki .. a butterfly in water". Yep, like it. Come back we miss you!
