RR - I had a similar experience a few days ago.  My Garmin 620 was about 0.25 miles off on my very regular route, then I stopped looking at it about 3/4 way through and when I got home the final distance was correct.

I've done only one park run - in Durban the day before Comrades.   I wish we had a park run in Atlanta, but sadly we do not.

Formaggio - I'm always jealous of the great runs I hear about in the US... Dannirr will be doing a Hot Chocolate 15k soon and i'm very envious of that one.



Emmy - I shall report back in detail!   But lets be frank....Europe has way better chocolate than the US.

TD - Tokyo is Feb 22nd, so more than light training .    And trying to get my head around the Comrades preparation too.

But let us not forget the most important race coming up:  The Hot Chocolate 15k!

Yeah, I'm not running Paris either, but I plan on sticking around here too.  It's fun, after all.

Getting into the heavy training for Tokyo in the next few weeks. Not sure I like this winter getting light late mornings though.

Usually a scope (of any kind) is done with mild sedation - in the US a drug called Versed is used.  It's kinda like Valium except that it has a very raid onset and a very rapid recovery, with the added benefit of retrograde amnesia - so you don't remember what they shoved in where.

I have the wifi and Bluetooth active all the time.  My battery seems fine.

As an ex-pat who left SA on before 1994, I think part of my training needs to include finally learning all the words to Nkosi sikele Africa and Shosholoza.
