Based on my participation in the Great Manchester 10k I had an email from Nova today and besides alerting me to the fact that the Great North Run is on Sunday, they gave the current status of voting for runners TOP 20 RUNNING TRACKS. Naturally, my first thought was to that pinky red circuit of 400 metres with 8 white lines around it, which I frequent most wEeks at Seedhill, Nelson. Silly me! No, they meant "tracks" as in album tracks voted most popular by runners who listen to music "on the run"!
Not many that I myself would have put in there. I'm more of trance/dance man! So good to see Faithless
but Freddie Mercury top?! Really!? Any of your favourites?............

Pic shows Freddie at the time he ran for Southampton Athletic Club and had made a pair of shorts out of his club running vest. Nice! But seriously............
hope you UK runners coped with last night's strong winds.
Today began no better but working from home allows me the flexibility to run when there is a window in the weather; which today was early evening. An easy 5 miles before tomorrow's TRACK SESSION
That's track as in athletics stadium type track.......not album track!
