Agree with both of above.

Additional clothing is bulky, and makes it harder to find the right veins for 'vitamin' injections.

Good to meet you skoptic, and nice to see everyone else again. I have to say, it's not the first time a conversation has kicked off about my beard, before I've even sat down.

So, us runners did indeed learn a lot last night. From what I understood about the various different types of Bodybuilding:
you have Weightlifting which is not a competitive sport, but I guess more of a fun, keep-fit kind of thing, then amongst the more 'sporty' types of lifting things up and then putting them down, you have Strongman which is where you try and pick up things that aren't actually weights, you have Olympic which is all about choosing the right shoes to match your leotard, and Powerlifting which is all about the three different types of movement - back arching, sitting down, and lying down (so it sounds a bit like yoga really, just with hard rock music instead of ambient dolphin noise).

I wrote a really long post and then decided to not post it.

I might go collect sometime.. maybe if anyone is up for another london mockmeatmarathon .. I could do a mass pickup before :) (although maybe not a good idea with frozen food?)
