I had to google Egyptian Mau as I've never heard of that breed but they look just like my Boycie did as a kitten although he is a Bengal. I hope the temperament on the Mau's is more docile than the Bengal as Boycie was a vicious little shit as a kitten/young cat but now he's 16 he's finally mellowed and only draws blood very occasionally now.
Sorry to hear about your daughter's concussion, Hope! I had a really nasty one when I was about 7 that put me in a coma for a week or so because no one realised I had concussion and I was too woozy to remember what had happened so my GP said to let me sleep...I didnt wake up for over a week! I know she's worried about college but using a screen will not help her recovery, she needs to rest...has she tried listening to audiobooks to pass the time?
I never keep race numbers but Smiffy has all his with times written on them. I love my medals though.
I have the urge to exercise but I'm not sure my legs agree yet - I did a Mara on Saturday and matched my second fastest time and I have another on Friday so I am inclined to listen to my legs for once..maybe.
Sorry for ignoring everyone else on here...lots of new faces since I last popped in.
Shades - Just checked my old emails and I still have the plan you send me back in December 2005! That was back in the days when I thought I might run a marathon in 2006...erm I think it ended up being four that first year!
Emmy...if I've got the right person then you have an FB friend request for me. If I've got it wrong then I've just requested the friendship of a random runner!
Shades...work rather took over my life this year so just a couple of marathons this year but I did lots of ultras last year in the build up to the Lakeland 50 where I had a great race and got proposed to on the finish line! My initials are still CAS but the S stands for Smith now When I counted up my finished 19 were ultras!
Emmy...I think I know who you are on FB but we're not currently friends although we have a lot of friends in common. I think I might have looked at your profile as you have the same surname as my cousin. I think you were at Thames Meander marathon as well?
