it was the european cross country event in edinburgh yesterday, my cosuin was a marshall and managed to *cough* steal *cough* 6 tickets for the offical ball last night. Being the resident group alcoholic i was invited to this do, which was free food and drink all night. i now have one of the worst hangovers of my life, but i had an ace time. I spoke to the guy who won the event, he was a russian called sergei someone or other. there were hundreds of stunning birds at the event and loads of poncy runners in what can only be called a skirt, cos they weren't kilts. Unfortunately paula radcliffe didnt make the night out, she did do the race and won it, but the bbc sports personality of the year awards were on last night so she had to fly down as she had a chance of getting the ten year prize.
so my question is do any of you like athletics?
