for joggers, slow runners, run/walkers and newbies
That is all.I'll have to google Podenco.
I am home. I hurt but I finished.Other half drove and we took both boys and my 2 running friends.Arrived in plenty of time.Picked up numbers and chips and joined long loo queue. Blue sky and sun, and not too chilly
2 minutes silence. Red wave set off - the fast ones - then we were ten minutes later.One lap of park then off along towpath. Quite muddy in places but lots of ducks and barges to look at.Excellent marshalling and plenty water stops.
Knee started niggling quite early and got quite sore but not enough to make me stop. Saw OH at 3 points enroute which was great and inbetween they sent encouraging messages via endomondo app on my phone.
Lost one friend at about 8 miles, shes also carrying bit of an injury, but finished ok.Other friend and I were together most of the run.I pushed ahead a bit towards finish which is a bit of an uphill.Youngest son was running in with us and her family had arrived for the finish line.
Crossed line at around 2.32 , not quite PB but ten minutes off same course last year.Not bad with a niggly knee
Once we were all in had few pics etc, then off to nearby Harvester for dinner.
Now home , bathed and sititng with ice on knee. Lovely well organised run, fabulous weather and scenery and good for spectators too. Just hope I can walk tomorrow.Seem to have gained a black toe and bruised top of foot so work could prove interesting!
Well done Amanda! That's a grand time, and sounds like you had fun too When's the next one?
Well done Amanda, that is a tale 0f heroism beyond measure.
My day has consisted of dog walking, cooking, eating AND arranging ski trips and Kiwi trips including mad bungee jumps. I challenged BIL to a South Island Bungee jump. He nodded wisely and pointed out that he'd done 160 parachute jumps in his military career.
Do they do adult sized Pampas?
Me and my gob.
Hello hunnies i'm home
Melds. welcome back,
LOL Noggie, it looks as if you have talked yourself into trouble!
Welcome home, your Meldyness.
Well run Amanda, I hope you are going to have a lazy evening and take care of that knee.
Well done to The Scout too. I'm afraid that 11.00 seemed to sip by un-noticed at home, I didn't realise until later .
Multiple houndie walk sounds, erm, 'interesting'. I hope that Podds survived.
Yumms, it sounds as if you had a good, convivial time, that is what matters.
It has been a glorious day here - and we spent much of it in the cinema. Far too much, in fact, as there were 30 minutes of rubbish before the 2 hour film began .
WAIST well xxx
Have managed to walk about 25 miles this weekend and my foot didnt fall off which was a bonusGPO is pleased to see me home, so pleased in fact he has killed the stair.Well done to those that have walked and raced and paraded and chopped and won things !!
The Nog brain and the Nog gob have seldom been connected, especially when red wine is involved.
Speaking of which, after my comments of last weekend, I'm watching Strickly Come Mincing with a completeley open mind,
Sadly, it's still complete rubbish.
LOL Noggs Is the NZ holibob off now ?
Did you have an appointment with Mr Bond this arvo, Sluggy ?
Well raced, Mandax. Sounds as though your ITB could do with a holibob too - hope it doesn't complain too much. Still, you could rest in on the stufff you get from B&Q
Well paraded Spenceboy and spence.
Hello M........eldykins. I think the GPO has been training Alfie in Ninja techniques while you've been away
Podds hasn't been in then. Do you think she has been dragged off into the sunset by the 8 houndies ?
Had lovely walk with chum and her pooch. Cush almost had a good time but is completely zonked on the sofa right now - bless Also managed a plodette - went rather well really Anyway, some norty person has drunk all the wine. I best head off to Nogg Towers to speak wit hthe Sommelier
At least you tried Noggs eh ? Yums I am glad to see he has been gainfully employed over the weekend and not slumped on the couch watching X Factor as I suspect he might have been .. !!
Good grief Noggs ..... dont even *try* that one !!!I dont think I could stand the 'review'
FGO in the morning Nighties all
*pictures Noggs in his lumberjack jacket swinging from a NZ bridge.........*
Good to see you Melds - was reading in the paper about an ASBO cat at the weekend and thought of the GPO He want AWOL for 3 weeks and when he was found and his owner collected him she was the only one pleased to see him - even the 2 other cats in his house weren't impressed with his return. As well as terrorising other cats and dogs he put a retired Lt Col in hospital...........
I am here Yums and Sluggie and the proof of my survival and day will appear shortly
"I really need a larger house when guests come round"
Rather than "5 have a big adventure" we had "7 go to the pub"
And then there were 8 - picked up another one in the pub.........
I couldnt see number 7 but I think I spotted him !!!
