Yes, I think I was doing that a bit by phoning Alex, he'd been very 'you can do this!' at the base, so I guess at least a smidge of me was thinking he'd do the 'well, I can pick you up, but you're doing great, pull yourself together girl!' As far as I can tell there were very few restrictions on anything (you could have dogs, run the course backwards, store the route on your watch so your watch told you which way to go, run the entire course in your own time before the race so you were less likely to getlost), so long as you actually walk/run/lurch the route - I did think at one point 'maybe I should phone Cathy for a chat to cheer myself up' and I don't _think_ that would have been cheating (although I didn't do it)

I think it's like bridge - at the start I hated bidding contracts that went off, and then M gave me the insight that if I made every single contract I was woefully underbidding and actually playing Wrong. So if you only ever do things that work perfectly you'll never find out what you can do...
