  2. Yep I agree totally. I'm trying not to let our pretty tough year get me down and I know I have some things others don't, like a job, and no money worries. Yes, yes, its not the governments job its families and friends genuinley caring and helping. The bits that have been gold is my cycling mates making each Saturday just a day to ride with me as they know that is about it for me and they plan around my time.

  3. If you would rather spend $25 I can highly recommend Fiski googles. They do not leak, do not fog up, they fit without the straps being tight so that you do not get goggle eyes. https://fiski.com.au/?v=fdd13832cd81

  4. Signed up for my first trail run in November!!! It's a baby one - 21 odd kilometers, but considering my background is sprint distance triathlons quite a big step for me. Very excited about it. Have just completed 4th week of training and am up to a 2 hour long run, which is about 15km and 800m elevation. I am not the speediest runner that's for sure! I've been pouring over this thread and doing lots of reading, which is half the fun sometimes. What started this new enthusiasm was getting a decent pair of trail shoes which made the most amazing difference to enjoyment of trail runnin

  6. Speaking of teleprompters, here's Biden having a Ron Burgundy moment reading out 'end quote' from his teleprompter...you cant make this stuff up!!! Oh my lord...

  7. Exactly. One of the reasons I did the travelling IM thing for so many years. A new reace, new city, new people to meet and things to experience. After doing Busso & Port for years my family was burnt out. They were no longer excited about going to either location and hated the 12 to 15 hours a week I was away training. I was also the same my training became less and less and I started to no longer enjoy it but for some strange reason I kept going back. I had a two year break and then went and raced in Mexico and loved the travel/race combo. My family also found it easier

  8. Was that at his rally? I watched most of that. I’m starting to think he’s having a few cognitive issues. He was struggling to read the teleprompter several times, miss pronouncing a lot of words (including “Trump”) and tapering off to nothing. I’ve never seen him this bad, perhaps it’s the workload nearing the election.

  9. I was thinking about this further last night, because what else do you do on a long run? It's interesting how old mate is being hailed a modern hero for stopping, but what happened to "don't ever quit" or "it's not over until it's over". There is a fine line between what happened here and it turning into "Greatest Sprint Finish Evaaar" or "Never Give UP!!" or "It's Not Over Until It's Over!" What if old mate had reeled in the other guy by a minute in the last 2km and was chasing him down and that's what forced him to make the wrong turn? What if he cracked under the pressure and he w

  11. See, here's the thing. It's difficult to take the politics out of that when it's is largely the result of poor decisions made by politicians Which also resulted in the largest NYPD union endorsing Trump...

  12. Yes starting with YOU. (collectively not singling out BB specifically) YOU are the ones who know your family and friends best and are therefore best placed to notice any differences in people who might be struggling. YOU are the ones best placed to ask that well known but rarely asked question RUOK?. YOU are the ones that your family and friends will respond to. A lot of people (particularly blokes) with depression are unlikely to say anything. They're embarrassed to think that they have an issue. So they keep quiet, try to act normally and just figure that it'll all com

  13. Jimmy is a great athlete and coach, at the time the place was prone to saying things like: Any able bodied man under 40 should be going under 9 hours stuff the 10 hour at IM and its not that hard. People just didn't want it enough, then came the under 50 minute TT standard. I thought sure for 60 minutes. Sub 50 is pro tour stuff, Tony Martin in his wins at WC was going 45 sometimes a bit lower or higher, though one year it was a paved gold road in Doha. The Australian elite TT on a 37.5 km course were not all breaking 50 minutes https://www.cyclingnews.com/races/cycling-austral

  14. Iron Jimbo has to have ‘the last word’. It’s tiresome and doesn't add to the debate. Mate: I avoid the echo chambers of MSNBC and the Washpost as much as I avoid FoxNews and Breitbart. I take nearly all my news these days by going to quality and non partisan psephology sites like PollBludger, Ken Bonham’s blog, RCP, 538 and then linking through to data rich analysis and articles that they post links to. I have personally also done county by county, and precinct by precinct analayse of the voting returns in the 7 key states for the past 3 presidential elections and the 2018 mid terms.

  15. Yeah we don't get that here quite so much (although my car wing mirrors seem to attract them!). Being first on the trail here can mean slippery dew in summer and nobody has broken the the ice/frost in winter. There is something magical about running from dark to light though. I can only imagine what it must be like to do an ultra all night and begging for that dawn, it must feel like heaven for your spirits!
