Re: Error messages when posting

For the record, I get this error too. Is it maybe only happening after previewing before submitting?

Based on the IKEA challenge, how about something similar using the London airports:
Heathrow
Gatwick
Luton
Stansted
Southend
City

Plus bonus points for additional challenges.
Don't forget "London" Oxford Airport!

Fortunately the weather was not as bad as forecast, but it was definitely the toughest parkrun I've done. Ticked off letter I on the Alphabet Challenge :) . Interestin...

All the threes, 33:33. (Stopwatch) BINGO!
