our mate gaynor, the one who's very good at running for a looong time, is also pretty good at organising races too. we ventured south for a bit of heckling. sorry, i mean marshaling the other weekend at the beast. think we had the best seats in the house. our job, to encourage runners through the 'water feature'. i was so good at this that one runner even threw a clump of pond weed at me.
having never been this side of the tape before and i was surprised at how much fun it could actually be. possibly due to the fact that i didn't have to wade through stagnant, foul smelling, freezing water. having said that, i've never seen such a happy bunch of runners!
