I have been away for the last 2 weeks in Dubai!!
What a city! If you haven't been before it's worth it for the experience :-)
We did a home exchange so were very lucky to stay in a large villa right by a swimming pool!
You may be wondering what this has to do with running.....well I did do a little running while there in the heat just in case Madrid is hot for the marathon.
Also I am considering very seriously running Dubai Marathon in January 2013 :-)
Three reasons:- I need to find a marathon early 2013 anyway, I LOVE DUBAI, and January has big sales in the shops :-)
