Hi Taholo

Well, unfortunately, it seems I've missed the race - apologies. I'm in the USA on work/travel, so have sporadic email access.

I hope the race went OK. You were doing plenty of training for it and give that you had only 4 days from this question to actually finish preparing, there was not much else you could do. So I'm sure it went ok and that you are hooked for future walks and runs!

Good luck!
