British 10k

Two weeks ago I managed my first real run since March 2007 when I trashed the meniscus cartilage in my left knee. It felt good to be lined up in what I was counting as a race. I arrived a little late (who'd have thought the roads would be closed even to bicycles!) and so crossed the start line pretty much dead last. It was by no means a fast run at 52m 56s, but that was a good 7 minutes faster than I'd managed 10k in a training run the week before.

The organisation was strong as it has been when I've run this race before. One small improvement that I'd like them to make is to publish a proper map of the course before you run it. Despite checking the pamphlet they sent and all sorts of websites, all I could find was a curious isometric perspective map that didn't really allow you to trace the route. With my GPS tracking 10.35km at the end (and I can't remember taking a wrong turn) I wasn't absolutely sure when the finish line was going to show up - there are a couple of double-backs (westminster bridge, parliament square and whitehall in the last couple of km). It would be nice to see it marked clearly on a map.

Is this the start of the Road To 3:30?

    Was David Frost there at the finish line to interview you? Or were you taken to hospital soon after with a bad knee?

    We can not survive without neoliberalism (am project = information, force, its own responsibility, etc).
    Sex, violence and work.
    Then, it is the Jewish question - many Jews in the labour movement (selling in intellectual solutions that kommunistpacket today "mass empty words without substance").
    The same mentality today = perhaps that nature is moving towards eradication. The control of some media - and similar organizations.
    The Devil's people (easy on eliminating).
