Nice Mara goody bag:
A jar of Patak's curry sauce
An Air France hand-baggage label
A bag of croutons
A sachet of oriental chicken flavouring powder.

I've been pretty impressed by the Nice stuff. Ok there's not masses in the bag at the expo, but the t shirt is really nice and you get a rucksack and a medal at the end, the real goody bag. I quite liked the curry sauce as it's a bit different, and there were also crisps, sweets etc in there. Have to disagree that it's a low at all!

I want instant snacks, not cooking ingredients!

To be fair, there are sweets, crisps and nuts. And a keyring & some smartphone screen-wipes which will be useful.

But curry sauce?!?

Pretty good haul really. The curry sauce just made me laugh (though I don't know if they'll let me through with it in hand luggage?!)

You all set for tomorrow? It's looking like decent running conditions as long as it cools down as it's forecast to, and we might even have a tail wind!

Patak's sauce may be common to us but in Nice it will be a rare and exotic (and expensive!) delicacy.

So maybe I should try to sell it in case they don't let it on the plane? ;)

Curry sauce confiscated by an angry French man at airport security. Sob.

Sadness at the loss of curry sauce. I didn't even try taking through airport security the lighter that was included in the race goody bag from Bremen marathon.

There was a lubricating solution to accompany the condoms in a goody bag I saw this weekend. Do race organisers think (know?) runners are sex mad?

Oops, just realised I read "croutons" as "condoms". Thus proving my earlier point...

Got something to say?
