I'm insured with DirectLine.  I phoned them on Monday to check i was covered and had a very amusing call with the assistant mishearing me and assuring and thinking i was running 6 miles.  I corrected him and he asked "Is that like a marathon?" to which I replied " A bit- except its more than twice as far"!  But I was covered because we have a higher cover for skiing anyway.

Phew- got my confirmation email.  Right better get on with sorting out flights and accomodation!  Only joking

Debra- I had an email from Amazon advertising a book called "parkrun:much more than just a run in the park".  Can you recommend it ?

Good news PG3.  One more sauna session for me tomorrow too.

PG3- I agree about the sauna. I manage 15 mins then a break and another 10 mins, break and a final 10mins.  I worked out I'd sweated over a litre in that time.  Hopefully it won't be 80 degrees in SA

That might be another possibility for me too depending on the temperature

OK, Mac3 I'll look out for you.  If the weather is as bad as it it is forecast I'll be in a Red/ blue Berghaus jacket

Ok Debra- I'll be in a grey waistcoat style jacket with one of David Ross's T shirts on underneath.  Really enjoyed your book- even if our parkrun wasn't mentioned .

Debra- we are on the same flight from Dubai but I'm getting there from Gatwick so see you in duty free!  I may be in my David Ross T shirt.

Mac3- We are going to the night of 10,000m this Sat too.  Went for the 1st time last year and it is one of the most exciting ways to watch a race!
