    Exciting news there @Arducius!

    Re: running to work @TurtleRecall - I run in at least once a week. I have a large assortment of stuff that I keep at work (all the toiletries in the world, towel, shoes, spare pants, jumpers) so generally just carry phone, wallet, keys, whatever clothes I'm going to wear that day. I really enjoy the run, obvs it takes longer than cycling but it's still far quicker than public transport. Normally I wear the clothes I've cycled in so changing at work means I get to wear clothes I can't ride a bike in, mainly swooshy skirts or minidresses (this may be a niche advantage to run commuting). I tried on a million rucksacks but bought one from osprey in the end. It has a hydration bladder that I don't use on my commute but used loads when I was on holiday.

    Fig, the beautiful but demonic cat I looked after last week, is very vocal. She miaows, screeches, wails and growls. She's just doing it to piss everyone off - the other cat has gone deaf, probably deliberately.

    I didn't get mine until October last year, and then I didn't get an email, just a letter sent to my old address.

    No mud as it's been so dry! Just as well as I don't have the shoes for proper mud. Hills though... It was pretty tough (no PB for me!) and I did regret having such a big breakfast once or twice but I really enjoyed it and definitely want to do more crosscountry.

    I got there really early as I didn't realise there was another race beforehand and was hanging about feeling lonely when I spotted @Bernie. Always a pleasure to see that man.

    Also, epic prizes for finishing! Tshirt, medal, sweets, banana, hat, bag, towel, other assorted stuff. Amazing.

    Stopping to have a cry every now and then is my number one tip for life. Sometimes the only thing that's going to make you feel better is a little cry. Or oreos.

    +1 on the foam roller. They hurt but it's a really nice pain.

    For anyone interested in my back pain the other day, I ate an oreo brownie (omfg so good) and then fell asleep on the train with my knees wedged against the seat in front. Woke up in Manchester with someone hitting me in the face with a bag and my back pain was all gone and hasn't returned. OREOS ARE MAGIC.

    I've lost track of what the list is for, chancers I think. Only me, Two Omegas and TTM left on it though.

    I practice my thousand yard stare every commute and I have lots of troubling socks. Everything else I struggle with.
