Red - many congratulations on reaching your 91st marathon! - And despite humidity and asthma. Go for the 52 in a year, we will all be cheering you on.
WtnMel - what you might consider with that "bloody great hill" is to see how far up it you can get before having to drop from a run to a walk. Note where you are, and next time try to run a bit farther, note where you are, and next time... You get the idea.
Re the elusive runner beans: I once grew some mange-tout peas (yes, I know, they're not runner beans) which turned from green to purple as they became ripe enough to pick, so they really couldn't hide.
Ooh, a blank front garden! Like a new canvas to an artist!
Ran 4.71 miles before breakfast this morning. Ran/walked the first 2 miles, then ran the rest without walk breaks. Knee hurt a bit towards the end, but nothing really painful. I certainly intend to continue running as long as I can.
