Thanks for all the advice everyone! Much appreciated :)

It was still pretty terrifying though, mainly because it would be a complete career change for me and I had to explain how I could transfer my skills across to that job.

Seems I got the interview purely on the strength of my covering letter and the fact that I'm an ultra runner (for now :( )

He seemed impressed and wants to organise a face to face interview - unfortunately I can't make the ones he is doing on Friday, but at least I've given myself a chance.

The job sounds really interesting, but you know what, if I don't get it I won't be upset because if they don't think that I'm the right fit for the job then that's ok. It's not like I think I'm 'perfect' for the job, and if they don't give it to me then they're crazy, it'll just be that any skills I might have may not be transferable - and I've promised myself a trip to Spain to study Spanish if don't get it :-p

Well done and good luck for Saturday!

(Ps. You are an ultra runner and always will be, what happens in the next 6 months won't change your running history X)

They wouldn't be asking you in - especially on a Saturday - if they thought you were just making up the numbers... good luck
