I'm on 8am coach 3 tour tomorrow with McHilly and DanniR I think. Anyone else? Remember pick up point is not the Hilton but southern sun Elangeni.

Met a few tonight at the Ambassadors meet and greet too

Also see people at Spiga, taxi about 6:00-6:10. Looks only 10 minutes away.

Yes. As Lowrez mentioned after I'd booked (doh) AF have a poor reputation. Seems all the SA people brought their PJs with them. So go figure.

We fly at 3:30pm now. Hope that's not your plane that should've returned back that we are on...

Lowrez, hope all okay.

Patricia, that's rotten to have stuff stolen.

Well at least made Paris so far. Only problem, I made Paris last night 10pm. Still here - in hotel. . Flight cancelled and now going 3pm approx.. Meaning I'm in stuck in JBG at 2-3 am. Ah the joys. No idea when I get to Durban.

Hopefully join you Saturday park run?

Lorenzo good for checking in. Bad that you chickened out and won't get your back to back. Boooo.

Got my confirmation email finally, last half hour just before midnight.. Taking their time!

Flying later Tuesday.

Marty I thought it was a standard link across to Facebook but may have your race number (or maybe even timing chip) in. Will check. It just worked for me.
Good point, those flying soon, tie that timing chip to your shoes now.

All good here. Flying Tuesday - assuming no strikes in Paris.

Caashford, I like the way you had a nightmare Feb and only just managed a 2:32 marathon at vlm. We'd all like that problem.

Wilf Mannion is Dave. Who knew.

PG3 hope kids okay.

Lowrez (and Marty sadly) Tuesday night air France for me. Lovely easy stress free flight last time.
13ish hrs flying in 3 flights, 3 hrs waiting 16. 5 hrs. Dubai is 16.5 hours flying with 3 hrs wait...Very tiring. Getting there Wednesday means nice and fresh, and early at the expo.

North beach park run for me which was glacial last time.. run/ walk. My usual 20 was more like 40.

I'm on the same tour as Dannirr on the Friday morning... If list making is happening.

Quick check in, away with holiday in Malta (some good hills) then busy with work. Last few hill sessions and nearly done. Is next weekend single digit mileage?

Can't edit the list on an iPad if someone could update for me?

Am I the only one doing the lovely Paris flights in big Air France A380 (again )? Nice fast flights and loads of space.
19:45 from Manchester, 22:10 Paris I think. In Joburg 10am, Durban 1:15pm.. Staying at Hilton, sharing a room with Dave.

If there's still space, can you put me and my roommate Dave down for Spiga. Assume there is no runners world pasta thing this year?

Not liking the sound of the weather forecast.

Jeez pop out for a few weeks, and you all redesign and gone stick figures. Had to check I wasn't on the swimming and art world forum

Ikle, how are the knees? Okay after that run.

All good here, tapering down for comrades, lots of strength sessions (front squat PB twice today (70kg then 80kg)., long hilly one yesterday (13m with 1200 ft up in 1:50), 2-3 more runs left but nearly done.
Two weeks from today hopefully finished 3-4 hours ago and sat having a huge steak. Fingers crossed.
