I've stayed out of all this tommo bs for years , but scarily enough , they are exactly as I imagined  , even down to the cutest wutesy puppy at the lunch table 

So what exactly were you expecting Charlie?

A young successful happily married Kiwi who moved to Melbourne 10 years ago, bought land and built a beautiful house, bought a brand new car last year, just celebrated his 4th wedding anniversary to his beautiful, intelligent, successful wife, just celebrated his 7th work anniversary working for the best company he’s ever worked for, travelled extensively both domestically and internationally to many countries including the US, China, India, Hong Kong, Singapore, NZ, Perth, Sydney, Gold Coast, Brisbane and Cairns and regularly attends race meetings of thoroughbred racing in the most livable city in world. 

Life is good Charlie, and it’s only getting better.

Here’s a pic from my latest run 2 weeks ago in the Run4Kids where I started with the next PM of Australia Bill Shorten and also a couple of results when I was fully fit beating the train at my first attempt in Puffing Billy and winning the Melbourne Corporate Games over 5km (still not as fast as Ted in his prime though B)). However I have been lucky to train with triple Olympian Craig Mottram recently which has been amazing!! B)

More please. This is the best thread ever. 

CBT, you weren't in the Notre Dame earlier on today were you, stroking your ego to the point it exploded into a fireball?

Arse'n is what it is. 

So what is it that you actually do for Graham Hart Barry? I see you’ve conveniently avoided that question to further denigrate myself. :P

Changing tack a bit CBT , have a look at Yulong Dragon (ex Empireofthedragon) . Part of 20 horses Yulong brought from  Ballydoyle to race in Australia. First foal of Atlantic Jewel , by Galileo. In training at Hayes yard now . Will be keeping eye on him when he gets going . Good mix of horses  brought over ,  most names changed , Murillo in on Saturday kept his moniker.

Atlantic Jewels second foal is also at Ballydoyle looks like got lead boots , you would beat it over mile by looks at your times.

I'd spell that knee though by looks of it , winter in paddock I'd say.

Lloyd Williams looks to have another good one at Joseph O'Briens yard, Buckhurst looked good at Naas last weekend winning first up, Latrobe just boxed on up hill in 3rd in Alleged Stakes first up this year.

You must be very proud of your son Chris. He’s done well for himself both in Singapore and now Hong Kong. Very cool. B)

I’ll keep an eye on Yulong Dragon. I love Atlantic Jewel (I had a big 7K all up win on her at Flemington many years ago). I’ll never forget when Dundeel beat her in her only loss. If she was sound she could’ve anything. 

My knee is holding up better than expected and I might even have a crack at the full Melbourne marathon in October.

My old man has a share in a promising 2 year old filly Jennifer Eccles who was scratched at Matamata on Wednesday. She’s worth keeping an eye on. B)

Steve Smith Eccles was a top jump jockey back in day , rode See You Then a triple champion hurdler that Nicky Henderson somehow every year nursed through as his legs were made of glass. Horse lived to nearly 30 , Eccles still knocking about , he was a legend a complete cavalier character loved by punters.

I will keep watch out for Jennifer Eccles.

Her father did more for racing than you ever will short stuff and she knows Trevor well telling me about the stroke he suffered prior to his passing. 

Why would I have any reason to doubt what she told me? Her father co founded Fisher & Paykel for gods sake and my uncle is best friends with her sister Sue. :lol:

Janet is the daughter of Lou Fisher.He founded Fisher  Aluminium windows.

So your story is full of holes, unless she has forgotten who her father is.

You’re a bit slow on the uptake. This has already been discussed in great detail on this thread. Rather than following the “flockofewes” I’d suggest you go back through the thread and have a look from the start yourself. :)

I just want to say welcome back .

Anyone who posts in your self flagellating style, which I presume is some sort of expiation, deserves to be admired, if only for the amusement factor.

Do keep up the good work you champion of self-abasement......

Comfortable win in the 5k Chris. Well done. 

Cheers Ted. It’s been amazing running with Craig Mottram, a true legend of the sport over here. 

Not sure if you’ve ever run around the iconic TAN track in Melbourne but he holds the track record of 10:08 beating other Australian legends like Steve Monaghetti & Robert de Castella. 

My quickest is 14:04. The Australian comedian Dave Hughes has run a 13:59! 

I also run with a work colleague Megan who used to go out with John Landy’s Son. B)

He’s not skiting.....he’s self flagellating but he’s too stupid to see it.

Even an old slug like me can run far quicker than that worm......5 minute k’s FFS......he’s a slug.

That’s a 1.45 half marathon ( I’m 1.18 ) and a 3.30 full ( I’m 3.12 ).

I’m picking Ted would be 1.10 and 2.30......and that’s a proper runner 

The more the posts the more he demonstrates what a delusional & tragic person he is .....please don’t discourage him

I’m proud of who I am and what I have achieved as are many others. 

You made a jibe at my character with your posting and I gave you a response.

Maybe don’t judge people as you judged me.

Wise words, take the advice.

“Flockofewes”.....need I say more. Couldn’t you think of a fairy tale pseudonym better than that? (although it does suit you quite well being a follower and all). :P

Best for half-marathon was 1:06:52. Still hold the NZ half-marathon record for masters 40+

 Half Marathon     M40 T McLachlan 1:08:22 1996   Actually ran another in 1:08:17  at age 43 but they obviously missed it even though it was a NZ Championship race.   

Only ran three marathons, all sub 2:30.  

I wonder if I lost 10kg and trained up what I could run now. Probably across the road and collapse. :rcf-laughing-2:

Nice one Ted! I’ve only ever ran 2 half marathons (I could never run beyond 10km in training because of my left knee). My best time was just over 1:28 in the Melbourne half marathon. Would love to try and crack 3 for the full in October but not sure if my knee will hold up unfortunately. Sub 2:30 is fair flying!!! My friend Anderson ran 2:37:18 for the Melbourne mara last year B)
