hi becca, not sure yet if my flight is delayed, had text saying it is but the boards still show leaving at 4pm. My flight is mango je259 so when you get through perhaps check domestic arrivals to see if i am close. if i am delayed will catch you all at hotel later or for spiga the next evening.

And is there a way of tracking your own progress on your facebook page at all? I don't seem to have the email that lowrez spoke about on the previous page? New to facebook so haven't done that before and not sure where to look

PG3 - glad to hear kids are on the mend and you have some really cool nails now!!!

SBA - i had that email you were talking about last night. Received the other one today some 12 hours later so hopefully you have yours now.

becca - guess i will catch up with you in durban airport somewhere around international arrivals? I will be towing a large blue case and another smaller hand luggage.

And for the spiga dinner on friday evening, is a plan to meet in reception at the hotel, order enough taxis for us all then jump in together? Happy for whatever time suits everyone best.

And since people are beginning to start their travels, take care and hopefully say in durban somewhere.

pg3 - hope all's going well with chicken pox.

SBA - you normally get a final email with all the details on. Last year i think i received mine on the Tuesday before the race, so am guessing they will be sent out soon.

Cant wait here as well, although have been struck down with a sore throat and a cold this week. Fingers crossed it is well out of my system before next weekend. Pretty extreme taper for me. No running yet this week but hey ho!!!!

6.30 is fine with me as well for spiga.

Always think its a strange time the weekend before. You can't really do a great deal and people, 1 by 1, slowly leave the forum to get on their travels to Durban. Looking forward ti saying hi to lots of people a week today!!!

cashford - fantastic marathon time. You will go well, just leave some beer for us all the end in the tent though

My flight lands a few minutes after the dubai one on thursday and mentioned to becca a few pages back about sharing a taxi. Hopefully you will all wait for me!!!!

I'm on friday bus 6 as well.

Not sure about your random questions though. Certainly haven't seen volunteers at the aid stations unless you are referring to the complete marathons package organised by Bruce Fordyce.

Yep. Very interesting. Trying to get my head around running the first 27k or so very easy and not worrying too much about losing time. Just cant wait to get there now.

FRC - i think i am on the same air france flight as you on the wednesday night. Might see you in departures somewhere. And i hope you haven't jinxed by saying its an empty flight, got lucky last year so yes fingers crossed it will be the same this time around.
