    What do you mean by "it"? I'm not into alcohol or bar room brawls. Mark probably neither. Even mikkey is said to be a likeable guy in real life, unlikely as it may seem knowing only his internet persona.

    Don't hurry - next AG will start 2026

      hahahaha, that interpretation is also funny, that you got into a brawl 😂

      But I meant this:

      walks into a bar

          Oh, I see. Not the kind of bar I was thinking of. Anyway, I may be way older than you are but my eyes are almost as good as forty years ago - no need to worry.

            I’ve started wearing a mask again and keeping other humans 6 feet away from me.

             

            The last thing I want is long bird flu.

              And now the thread has truly hit rock bottom.

               

              If nobody's earning Moose Mugs any more, well...that's life.

               

              But I'm not sure I want to be part of a thread where bar room brawls are a non-possibility.

               

              Lame.

              Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

               

              And...if you want a running Instagram where all the pictures are of cats, I've got you covered.

                Normally I would say it would be a lame barroom brawl anyway, with a bunch of scrawny runner arms flailing about. But there's been an inordinate amount of weight training talk in this thread, so who can say.

                  If anyone is up for a bar room brawl then I’m ready!

                      Lame.

                       

                      The thread hit rock bottom a couple of years ago when some bright spark decided that it was a good idea to make it a non marathon thread with no time goals.

                       

                      You’ve still got your Waltons thread so quit whining and only post there if you are offended by anything I post or people who have a sense of humour. There’s a reason why great posters like JTReeves left and it wasn’t because of me.

                          Mikkey - You missed an obvious joke from darkwave then told her she has no sense of humour.  Come on man (to quote Weekend at Bernie's).

                           

                          Also, now I see why you hate the thread so much.  Because we talk about other distances, and you are unable to convert a good marathon into good 5km, 10km or half as shown by your much much weaker PRs in those distances.  Maybe if you try a 5km you'll make it to a start line

                            I’ve got my eye on you….if you are unable to run a 10k at less than 80% AG this year then I will show no mercy.

                              I’m not convinced Mikkey would even make it into the bar. He strikes me as the sort of guy who would be denied entry for being too drunk, then would be arguing with the doorman running the “don’t you know who I am” line.
