Did a kit check this morning and I forgot to bring my UK running vest to Angola ... aaarrrggghhh,  If I get it send to anyone on the Forum would they be happy to hand carry it into SA and I can pick it up from them ... as an international runner I found using the UK vest (from previous years forums) really helped with support.

If you are ok to help, please PM me?

Go away for a couple of weeks and miss lots and lots of posts!  lots of training going on and I hope everyone is starting to enjoy the taper .. I know I am. 

I am flying in from Angola 

24th May LAD - JNB    14:05
25th May JNB - DUR    10.55 (SA547)

Staying in Umhlanga, at the Pearls apartments


31st May   DUR - JNB   06:30 (SA528)
                 JNB - LAD   09:45

I am also an ex Durban Boy bought up in La Lucia (near Umhlanga), and the Friday night is my old schools 30 year reunion dinner.  Not sure there will be much pasta.

Look forward to seeing some of you again, 8th time and I am still nervous - but if memory serves me correctly not as nervous as SD will be.

Been off the radar for a while and can see some good running, I think I missed 20 pages somehow.

I did Om die Dam in SA last weekend, in a new pb by 12 minutes (4hrs 27mins); Two Oceans next weekend then back to the UK for a week.  Training in the heat in Angola has been very tough ... cant wait to be able to run in the cool again (no saunas please)

Tough training here in Angola for me this weekend, with temperatures rising to over 35C (its 30C at 6.30am at the moment).  Doing the East London half IM in 2 weeks and can then put the bike away as training for comrades and Ironman is hard work in this heat. Loving the sound of mud and cold!!

Confirmed entry into Two oceans now, and flights booked.  May pop over 2 weeks before that to do Om Die Dam as well ...
