From where I live (Seaton Sluice by the Astley Arms) and sticking as close as I can to the shore whilst not drifting onto the beach - it's about 8.7 miles, but you can shorten it by cutting bits off. I'll send you a route tomorrow, I'm off to bed now.

Nice run though, no hills, might be worth you having a look at.

*makes note to say hello to ST's Aunt next time I'm passing

XL, maybe she has!!!!

You'd think, being family, she'd have given me it back, wouldn't you?

Corinth, she'll make you a cup of tea and give you a garibaldi biscuit, I expect.

I'll tell her to look out for you ;-)

Can't do it from here :-)

I say thank you to the dog owners who are consciously controlling their dogs as I run though the park etc. I also say 'hello doggie' to the nice friendly dogs.

I got a proper 'g'wan pet' the other morning from the driver of a bin lorry in Waaaallsend (he waited to turn out from a side street til after I'd run past). Obviously North Tyneside bin men are just fab and very considerate of runners :)

Someone should email the link to this thread to the local council down there. Somebody, somewhere would appreciate it! I work for my local council, and as was already said, messages of praise or gratitude tend to be thin on the ground, compared to complaints.

From my experience, it's everyone from that neck of the woods who are remarkably friendly.
