Om Die Dam done, a quick trip to jo'burg for 2 nights and finished in 4.39; finished strong too so I was pleased with that.

I just entered Shakespeare, at the end of April I think so hoping Becca hasnt run it already?

Stig: Running in Luanda can be fun; can only run along the beach in the day time for security reasons; so have to lap the Marginal at night.  I do hill repeats (with some other runners) up to the fort; much to the amusement of the army who patrol that area.  For long runs we go out of town into the country where there are hills and its a lot quieter/safer; but we have to get permission every week and have drivers stop every 5 kms to make sure we are ok (and to give us water as its very hot/humid here).  Managed to train for an Ironman here last year as well so its not too bad.

Training in Luanda is going well, although a couple of colds havent helped.  I am nipping over to SA this weekend (its only a 4 hours flight) to do the Om Die Dam 50kms run around a dam just outside Jo'burg.

Have to leave here for a month while my work permit gets renewed in April/May so will start booking up some marathons back home and will add my name to the list when I do.

F2D was there ever any doubt?  A little birdie tells me Carmen has signed up for another as well.

Ironman Mallorja done this weekend, with a 4.02 marathon at the end.  Will aim to improve on that time at Portsmouth in December as will focus on the running training again now! 

Good to see some familiar faces heading back, and welcome to the new ones.

Thats me in for another year!  Good to see some of the other old faces heading back as well (and some new ones).  Looks like I will still be in Angola, so will spend as much time as I can in SA.

I got it too, and will be back next year!  Ironman in a month so lots of different training for me at the moment which has been fun (but tiring)

Please add me in for Milton Keynes, back from Angola for a 2 week business trip so managed to get an entry.  No idea when I am headed back as they kindly have my passport for my work visa renewal.

Good running all, i did my 61kms run on the weekend in 6hrs and after MK marathon will start the long awaited taper. 

Douglas - fingers crossed you will be on the start line on Monday.  I would hope that a week would see the infection behind you and back you back to full strength.  As Marty says best to get it out the way now.

Jacquie - lots of exposure over the weekend on Sophies Twitter account ... fame at last!?
