Re: Countdown in Cambridge (CoCam) 2019 - Saturday 8th June

I've just seen that there's a new (new since last year anyway) parkrun that's much more reasonably placed than the actual "Cambridge" parkrun called Coldham's Common parkrun. Assuming I come to this (and I probably will), this is the parkrun I intend to do.

Does this all call into question the accuracy of the buzzing system in other close situations? I've always wondered if there might be a bias towards one of the buzzers anyway, and as long as it's pressed within, say, 0.2 seconds of the other one, it will "win".

Was Jeanne Calment a fraud?

As you might know, Jeanne Calment is famous for being the oldest person ever, dying in 1997 at the age of 122.

And maybe some of us will meet you at CO:LON in a couple of weeks and possibly the Southwark parkrun.

The proportion of underweight people (of which I am one) seems far higher in Countdown circles than in the general population. Why's that?
It's either an Apterous subscription or food.

Luckily I joined Apterous when there was a one-off fee for life.
