Thanks for the feedback Guy - much appreciated. It was great to meet you and Lindsey on Saturday. I really enjoyed the tour and chatting to you both in between stops about events you had done in the past. All the best with getting back to full fitness and hope to see you at Edinburgh Marathon Festival in May. Oh and if you or your son work out Maxwell's Theory, do let us know. Kind regards to you all in the Toon, Stevie
