Afternoon Shadies. Just been catching up on the thread as I'm in Italy and the wifi is a bit sporadic. We're now at a 2nd campsite though which has a speedier connection.

Loved hearing about MF's adventures in the Dordogne. How lovely to see an owl on your run.

Hope BG is enjoying Sri Lanka. And hope Shades' foot is OK for this w/end.

Weather hear is hot but I've been running most days. Just means having to get up v early. Longest so far was almost 11 miles yesterday. We're staying on Lake Garda so every run has been by the lake. Am wishing I'd taken a 2nd pair of running shoes now.

Sounds as if you're getting in some lovely scenic runs SK, I'm SURE you can find a running shop and pick up a pair of lovely new shoes  Enjoy the rest of your holiday

Shades - I've had a quick Google of the IOM marathon and it looks great. I've never been there.. will you be making a weekend of it?

Easy run for me today. Had to go out this afternoon as didn't have time this morning but it was a bit too hot. Saw a Mexican (well he didn't have a poncho or sombrero or anything but he LOOKED mexican) sitting in a shady doorway with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth twanging away at a guitar - which is a new one round here. Spent the rest of my run thinking about Peru. There you go.. nothing else of interest to note.

SK - Lake Garda is somewhere I've wanted to visit so I envy you, I bet it's gorgeous there.   I expect running shoes are very expensive in Italy.

mamafox - LOL at your Mexican, amazing what you see when you're out running.

Back running today and I so enjoyed it, I'm grouchy when I can't run.   Foot is a bit better but not significantly so.   I have started doing my foot exercises again.

Shades - I haven't looked at the price of running shoes here but I would imagine you are right. Lake Garda is really beautiful, especially the part with all the mountains. Where we are staying now, there is a longer route around the lake which is better for running as before I had to go backwards and forwards a bit.

Glad the foot seems better. I'm the same when I can't run.

Mamafox - you seem to have very adventurous runs! I overtook a German guy yesterday and he obviously didn't like it as he suddenly speeded up and we ended up racing for about a kilometre!
