The world's gone mad!

...those were last words of an email from Dick, the organiser of the Grand Union Canal Race, to me this evening!

As I reported last week I had placed my GUCR cheque in the post to Dick and it was just a matter of waiting for the confirmation. Dick contacted me as there was a little confusion with my payment which we settled very quickly and he confirmed my place in the race.

I jokingly mentioned that I hoped Henk van der Beek (organiser of Caesar's Camp 30/50/100 miler) was going to play some good Country and Western at his check point and this was the point that Dick mentioned that glorious quote:

The world's gone mad!

So wonderfully ironic from a man who organises the craziest of events :-)
