    Glad you're covering this, but aren't you a bit late...

    ...as she's finished?!

    Anyway, cracking run Nicky, well done.

    Mind boggling really

    This sort of thing does make it rather amusing (well that, or plain insulting!) to think they only let women run the Olympic 10,000 metres as recently as 1988.

    Great to see people still achieving this sort of thing at her age too, but I guess ultra/fell running is quite kind that way.

    It certainly gives me hope at a couple of years her junior

    Got a fairly prominent mention in the Grauniad today, unsure if any others but I suppose it might have done.
