"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009

Love the muddy legs!
From the English-to-American dictionary:
chuff v. To chuff is to fart. Entirely seperate to the word chuffed so use with care.
chuffed adj. Someone who describes themselves as being chuffed is generally happy with life. You can also get away with saying you are unchuffed or dischuffed if something gets your back up. Make sure you only use this word in the correct tense and familiarise yourself with the meaning of the word chuff too.
Breaking all Illusions
Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
Gandalf the Grey
but have never heard of dischuffed, think the dictionary made that up!!!
Running ... just keep running! Fancy a holiday running in the French Alps?
Take your protein pill and put your helmet on.
Sometimes after a really good chuff I feel chuffed. Eddy, you've done great with WW's. Are your friends telling you that you've lost too much weight yet?
