Please pass on to Meaghan a great big thank you for her advice and treatment over the last few weeks. I did state that I would email her the outcome of my race.

Because of her treatment and advice I was able to complete my ultra-marathon event over the weekend (Jabulani Challenge) in 4.52hrs finishing 16th overall. The soreness and issues I was having didn't affect my race and Ive recovered reasonably well.
Thanks again.
