    It's arrived. Nice to see "The FRA Forum fights back" (pp. 102-106.

    There's also an article about Matthew Atkinson, titled "The Racing Mathematician". I would quibble with one word of that title: "The", which implies that there is only one. Fell racing mathematicians go back at least to Professor John Marstrand of Bristol University, who I believe was the first ever British M50 Fell Running Champion.
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    Indeed Anthony and obviously this was noticed by the person who critiqued the piece but after lengthy consideration he concluded that there was a clearly implied sub-heading of "as far as the future of the LCT is concerned" which would have been too prolix to include - so he let the solecism pass.

    Aww. RIP Nellie.

    The Fellrunner is as brilliant and inspirational as ever. From Charlie to Peak Age I have loved all that I have read so far.

    Good that the forum got a mention although a little bird told me that some members had their arm twisted .....

    The only article that confused me was a strange one about running round and getting lost in India ????

    The postman hasn't delivered mine yet, so yet to see if my words made the cut... although speaking only for myself, i volunteered my services without any arm-twisting required!

    Nice initiative about the forum. Lets hope in this 'post social media' age, folks return to a tried and trusted resource. Lets also hope that we don't get into Always Injured/Brexit type spirals that spread negativity across the whole resource. Thumbs up and press on.
    Oh, and I thought the interview with young Charlie was charming and inspiring. I shall watch his progress with interest.
