Yesterday afternoon I managed to check out another orienteering course which had good poles and everything in order, so that is another tick on my mental 'To Do' list.
Finally, I must wish my daughter-in-law all the luck in the world as she runs her first marathon on Sunday in the Virgin London Marathon. My son is also running but is an old stager at marathon running as this will be his 45th and he is a pacer at 4 hours 30 minutes. He has to keep up a steady pace all the way to encourage those who want to run at this speed. His 50th marathon will be in New York on his 40th birthday in November. My good wishes go to both of you and I hope to spot you on TV!!
