Having a fantastic family - Mrs Borders and my two girls.

Learning to ride a bike at the age of 44.
Being responsible for the construction of 7 new secondary schools.
Raising over £2000 this yeaar for The Alzheimer's Society - not got there yet but will manage it.
I do Survival of the Fittest at Nottingham most years really enjoy that one, although this years version was tainted by a bee sting at 4-5k which developed into cellulitis the following day and the loss of a contcat lense at Holme Perrepont which meant I ran half the race half-blind.
I have done the VOTWO Kamikaze in Dorset; needs a weekend away from where I am and has more running than obstacles.
I did the Total Warrior 10 miler last year, had a long weekend up in the lakes to cover it. Really enjoyed the race. The organisation was good; fantastic atmosphere with quite a few teams in fancy dress. As a bonus there is a New Balance factory outlet in Shap.
You're righty about the tough mudder; over the top pricing.
I'm thinking of doing the Midlands Super Spartan on 8th September.
France will win as long as they turn up, expect Italy to try to draw them into an arm-wrestle.
I think that England will beat Scotland, I'm English so I've got to be positive. The Scots have a nasty habit of stiffling matches so they can win on kicks at goal and I admit that I'm not convinced that the England will be attacking after all most of them play for Sarries whose sole tactic is to draw the opposition into giving away penalties.
Ireland should make up for their disappointment of not making the World Cup semi - they're at home and still have have excellent locks, back-row; half backs outside backs are pretty special as well.
