used to keep pet hamsters and indeed have a rodentine alternative nickname but bizarrely the unauthorized kind just provoke the classic instinctive reaction in me, seriously, jump on a chair, scream, run away, getemoutnow! I wish they would just go but of course that ain't gonna happen, so wimpishly just trying to get other people to deal death for me...

... and the ****ing mice in the **** attic. (OH is reluctantly ringing people as we said that if the latest round of B&Q rodentBgone! stuff didn't work, we would Get Someone Out ... meanwhile I am sleeping downstairs on the sofa where I can't hear the little ****s and therefore I *can* actually sleep. GRRRR).

I think getting to the start will be the least of our worries - even JM the horribly broken plans to do that.
Having spent many months worrying about getting back to Durban from the finish (anyone who's seen me in previous years knows what a state I'm in at that point!) I'm now more concerned about getting to PMB ...

You should deffo see your GP. After all you need lungs and heart to live, so this could be an early sign of something that is really important to have treated. As you know a few unlucky folk do get heart problems despite a healthy lifestyle, so a little bit of caution can really pay off. Good luck...

Good tip BI. I remember a power cut hitting the street lights as we headed out of Durban in 2011 too.

Weather forecasts these days are only decent 4-5 days out or less, so....

Jacqui, if I don't see you, I hope that your trip has some new and exciting bits in it - your injury has been such a blow to your hopes and plans, so I am wishing you at least 5 novel and thrilling events for May 31st to make up for it.

GFA (Good for age): relates to age when you did the time or age on day of VLM?

(Boston qualifying times relate to the age you are when you run Boston with your BQ place, not the age when you did the BQ time, but is VLM the other way around?)

Ladies: clothing tips to keep bum + thighs warm in the bitter cold

I've tried shorts on top of thick tights & still get a cold bum - would shell suit tracky bottoms work? Can you still even get them?

Begin running courses - Have you done one? What were the good and bad bits?

I'll be helping with a start-to-run course in September and we're starting to plan it, so a bit of input from folk who've been on the receiving end would be brilliant
