    All i can reveal is that a lion came knocking at my door and if sparth hadn't stepped in I could have ended up in a very bad way. As it was we both ended up in a state of shock.

    You're bloody pampered at Middleton you lot. Never mind Lions, you want to come into C Block at Rochdale we're fighting Teradactils. Every day is like living in Jurassic Park.

    Anyway what about the Northerns Timothy - personally i want Heaton Park desolate with a howling gale blowing and it mud caked underfoot.

    I'm gutted it's heaton park this year, as i'm not fit to run. I run better at local races... i don't travel and race well. i can never get my race prep right, on long haul races...(unless of course the club put us up somewhere the night before).

    timothy i agree the lioness teeth were ferocious- we were nearly lost to the forum for all time.

    no amount of training courses could have prepared us for the sight- Danbert you would have ben terrified

    Smile Danbert's Charge

    I endorse your sentiments.
    Danbert's Charge at the Northern.

    As Danbert jogs to the start line,
    His heart is beating fast.
    It could be anxiety - or pride,
    As he's wearing his best club vest.

    Some runners show sensitivity
    and some are macho men.
    Today is Danbert going to prove
    the sword is mightier than the pen.

    There are runners to the right of him
    And runners to the left.
    Will these men be able to tell
    he has a great hole in his vest?

    The 5 minute gun has gone
    and runners form in ranks,
    Danbert is in amongst them.
    Has he time to hide his hankie in his pants?

    The murmer slowly ceases...
    The field edges to the line,
    Danbert breathes deeply
    And the moment is held in time.

    He thinks of runners gone before him
    And of those still yet to come,
    And as the canon fires hears
    "Strength and Honour my Son".

    Danbert charges down the hill
    to the plateau and monument.
    He sees where he stood in '82,
    when another John spoke to a larger mulitude.

    Up hill, down dale and through the stream
    Danbert storms his way around.
    In this field of 400 runners
    Where ever will Danbert be found?

    Is there going to be a happy ending to this saga?
