Re: Help me start Running!!

I love the couch to 5km application on my iphone! And I agree with the others in finding the right music to run to - Minstry of sound do a running tracks CD which is really good.

Re: Spirits - what to have in your bar!

I think its up to you but you could try... * Vodka * Gin * Bourban * Scotch * Rum (dark or white) * Balieys for after dinner plus work out what people will mix with - coke, diet coke, lemon, lime etc... But I would watch out for people getting messy - can happen quickly on the hard stuff!!! :wink:
