Please dont worry about its part and parcel of having strong healthy heart, basically I get them and had them for the last 5 years even had it last night,anxiety and cafeine bring them on, when u keep fit u gotta watch want u drink and eat as it gets more sensitive like a fine tunned car
I've seen some bad advice on these forums but this is right up there. It's true that in most cases palpitations are harmless but it's dangerous to assume that they're normal because you're a runner, or take caffeine, or whatever. They could be indicators of an underlying heart condition and if they persist are worth getting checked out.
I ignored them for a while, right up until I blacked out during a run. A rarity perhaps, but generally a quick ECG will show whether there's anything worth checking out further.
It's a few years old so the start times are a bit out, but the maps, pacing and general information are still valid.
Accommodation in Boston within walking distance of the finish can vary from plush hotels to hostels, depending on whether you're taking the family for a nice weekend away or doing it with mates on the cheap. Book somewhere early and don't fly back on the evening of the race unless you really can't take another day off work.
You're right in that you can't MAKE them go, but I will if he's just being lazy and can't be arsed. I was talking with a freind/parent last night about this very thing. He's always been very good at making sure his kids try everything they want to His eldest boy (8) loves football but just isn't very good. He gets upset because some of the other boys take the piss out of him. His father is willing to pay for extra coaching for him but he doesn't want to do extra coaching. So what do you do? Let him carry on as is, without improving, or MAKE him go to remedial? These are the choices we make every day as parents.
Making him go to coaching sessions when he didn't want to would be a waste of time and money. He might improve, but an individual getting better in a team sport like football is impossible to measure, it's not like running where even a small PB is a measurable improvement. And kids get a reputation among for being bad at football it's almost impossible to get rid of. If he's not enjoying it any more, time to let him try something else.
"you do not need to contact us to ‘chase’ your refund, it will be processed, thank you"
This is the first thing you see on their page. So imagine youve signed up, paid, heard its been cancelled, and you read that. Whats the first thing you are going to think?
I would notice that the first paragraph that says that is marked as an update, so presumably came after the rest of the page which says that entries will be transferred if you don't contact them. I would imagine that everyone that's signed up and paid had received the email cancelling the event which told them what the options were, which makes the page a lot clearer.
The whole page is really intended for those for whom it's relevant, i.e. those who entered and have been directed there by an email telling them it's off. Reading it out of that context and then saying it's poorly worded isn't very useful.
