Thanks, all!

Deinonychus, sounds great, enjoy!

ChrisHB and Derby Tup, I've not been running for so long, I didn't even have running shoes anymore... Finally went and traded in my Christmas voucher last week though, but, of course, would need to see how the new shoes fare over longer distances first. Don't think I could walk just under 40 miles, but am hoping that run/walking might be a bit easier. Famous last words...

Mrs S, we won't be at WHWR this year, unfortunately. So many volunteers that we weren't really needed, so will do nursery fun day etc. instead. Have a great weekend and all the best to Shanksi!! We'll miss seeing everyone.

Remind us how long your furthest ultra was ;-)

By way of an update: went for a couple of runs back in mid-June which led to a (non-running) issue flaring up. Been sore on and off since, so running has been shelved once again. Thanks a lot for all your advice and encouragement though! I'll be back. :)
