You're making it sound tempting Meldy but, er, no
Gosh I ache today! 15 miles is a long way when you're not properly trained...
and I'm COVERED in insect bites, urgh. Don't need to be up this early but just couldn't stay in bed, far too itchy!
Lovely day yesterday though,and lovely to see XB of course, who I think also had a nice day
At 9ish miles we went up a giant hill and passed a woman crying with her family, daughter was saying 'do you want to give up? It's ok to give up!' And she was just sobbing... XB is such a gallant gent and suggested we pick her up (metaphorically of course) and bring her with us (after all, we couldn't possibly have ben going any slower...
So we said if she wanted to finish she could come with us and we wouldn't leave her, there were only 4 miles left, and she did, which was nice, and we walked and plodded a bit, and tried to catch up XB amd my sister at each stage (sister had to wait at each stage anyway as we were running as a pair and I had the electronic dibber
) Crying woman finished just ahead of me, with er daughter joining her over the finish line, and cried some more
So a jolly good day out
Knee feels like a bag of broken lego but I'm sure it'll mend itself. At a work event all day so I'm going to walk into town to get it moving a bit, but then not much dashing around after that hopefully.
Must find some kind of bite cream, aarrgghh!
