So after discovering this game-changing location app/website called What3words which has labelled the word in 3m x 3m sections using 3 unique words, it made me look at start and finish locations of runs for some reason - The app is very helpful for our operatives in finding locations more exactly (e.g. on new build sites or where postcodes arent helpful).... .

So on 6th April I will be running a parkrun here...

///unscathed.deferring.tasteful

and on 27th April I will be running here

///corner.chimp.wins

The problem is that it's down to 3m and the Garmin (other GPS devices are available) is less accurate than that. So you could be either side of a street, and Garmin wouldn't know. My work address is a large building, so could vary from

rare.epic.fine which I like to twigs.tree.puzzle that I also like or oval.drift.trips getting less lovely.

My postcode is magazines.moats.mend which is alliterative and hence memorable ish! But again, your house could have 100 different addresses. Which do you choose?! :-) G

w3w.co is probably the most accurate start point of my Saturday run this week

I think the likely end point is w3w.co
