Terry - very sorry to hear of your problems. I have seen it in my family so I know it is very difficult. I hope your son gets all the help he needs.
Bike It - well done on a good run at Vaal.
We could do with some English weather down here in Durban at the moment. It's been cooking hot for the last month or so. I got lucky at the Maritzburg Marathon last Sunday as we finally got a cooler day. I had a really nice and relaxed run and ran the easiest feeling sub 3 I've ever run with a 2:50. This morning was the first longer than marathon distance run of the year with 50km on the route from Cato Ridge to 45th Cutting. It just reminded me of how tough that section from Drummond to the top of Bothas Hill is!
My training seems to be going generally well. I've clocked up about 1380km (about 855 miles) so far this year and it seems to be feeling easier.
