Morning...just realized I haven't posted for a week...

Well I did a 1/2 Marathon yesterday..It was the Bacchus 1/2 Marathon it was very hilly,but, great fun as the race incorporated wine stops every 2-3 miles. So about 12 of us from the club hired a mini-bus so we could participate in the vino. Managed to run all the way with two of my ladies and had a really good laugh. Was a bit slow in 2.08,but, we probably stopped for a least 3 minutes at each stop.. 

Well done to everyone on their running.

Jude-Think I would still rather have the weather of Turkey than what we had on Monday and Tuesday!! Well done on your 7 miler.

MC-It's always disappointing that you go somewhere on a recommendation and it doesn't live upto expectation. Well done on your run last night and hope you get the massage sorted.

DJ-I saw those photos on FB- I really like your pictures of scenery. Good luck on your long run tomorrow.

Managed a dry 6.7 miles this morning!!

Back from my wanderings,

Well done to everyone on their runnings.

Interrsting about Park Runs - ours in Horsham starts Saturday week. I think it is three laps- can't say I can get too excited about 5k,but, will give it a go. Trouble is I would need to record a good time to feel sataisfied! 

Franny-That is brilliant- although I thought you only looked 30 when we met up!

DJ-Enjoying your tunes- hope you get the migraine issue sorted.  

Chilli- I kwow wahat yor mean re fitness. We did a fair amount of qlking in the Peak Districts and I found myself waiting quite a lot!!

MC-Pleased to see that you had a great holiday.

Well I have had a week in the Peak Distracts with my lovely wife and step daughter- ran 27 miles including a near verticle .4 miles that I was not prepared to beat me. Then been to Weymouth with mu daughters for 3 days which was great and maanged some nice coastal runs. Just come back from 11.5 hilly miles on the South Downs with friends from the clubs.

Next week will be healthy eating week......

Funeral was tough especially as she was my "twin". Good to see some friends I hadn't seen for a while her husband and her son seemed to cope well.

Franny-Nice hair cut.

DJ-Hope that headache goes. Think I will look up the Paul Weller version.

Jude-Well done on your running and your daughter finish 3rd in Turkey..what a star.

4.8 miles yesterday 6 today so have run every day since Friday. Off on holiday for a week in the Peak Districts on Saturday.
