                  Congrats & what an awesome encouragement you were to your friend. Great race report as well & I loved the detail of the tuba guy ... though when I first read it I thought he was running it as well Shocked

                  Train smart ... race smarter.

                        Nice one, Di! Tuba carols rock! Also, I didn't know there was such a thing as an 8k race? You would be fun to run with. Smile
