    Odd bod from Wales, to the right of Atilla the Hun. Lovely!

    Don't worry I'll NOT be getting my coat.

    BTW Fellbeast, I also was interested in your run routes but didn't comment as they are a bit far away and thought that as I hadn't done them I was not in a position to comment.

    Anyway, how's the knee and are you still running?

    Not entirely negative as it has worked for me in the past and saved quiet a few quid.

    Leftie pinko from Yorkshire who may well be running with Llani soon. We are a broad church and I hope it stays that way. Its a great place to visit and has given me loads of laughs and a lot of information. Reminds me of loads of areas of Britain I have run/walked in and hope to return to. There have been a few tricky patches that probably put a few people off, but stick with it. I hope Brett can put up with us for a bit longer.
    And as for the FB page - I watch it, but it's so hard not to post comments just taking the piss. What Fell shoes - For me as a dry stone waller; it's got to be wellie's.

    And I love the pithy one liners.

    They are the best bit.

    To be fair, I did ask on here what was the best "all round" fell shoe, as I only wanted to start off with one pair. So I can understand some of the questions when people are starting off. (I bought a pair of mudclaws in case anyone was interested!)

    But people asking which shoes will fit their abnormal-shaped heels/toes/etc... Or should they buy a size 9 or 9.5, or what shoe for the Snowdon Race with a 76% probability of drizzle on the way down...

    My knee, touch wood, is the best it’s been all year right now and I’m starting to be able to run quite well again. To be fair I completely f**ked my knee again at the end of June and my knee recovery went through a deja vu all over again recovery mission but I think I’ve got there. Taking it steadier this time round

    This was me celebrating my first proper run up Penyghent at the beginning of this month

    I'm not on Facebook but my son borrowed my phone to look at something on his account and since then I seem to be able to view it. Mostly I find it confusing - it's harder to follow particular threads and comments than it is on here and yes, I do find some of the posts 'surprising'. But what I have noticed looking at it this last week is that two significant bits of fell running news, one very sad, seem to have completely passed this forum by. I refer to the cancellation of the OMM and significantly to the death of a very well respected member of the fell running community to whom many of us owe a great deal. Maybe (like me) others didn't feel it appropriate for them to announce it on here, thinking perhaps a close friend or family member might instead. But I was surprised both things were on FB but not here. Perhaps that says a lot about the use the forum now gets.

    Travs posted here on Thursday that the OMM had been cancelled.

    As for announcing a bereavement, that is a difficult one. I can't see why people would want to announce one on Facebook. How very un-personal.

    I'm not on Facebook either.
