SK and family congratulations on your great 10ks
Shades my daughter wants to study child nursing. Very oversubscribed courses but it is her vocation and I think she will make a brilliant nurse so hopefully she will get a place.

((Big G)) thankyou again for your post. So glad you did the park run but v emotional for you. Good you have an understanding manager. Sure your future will come clearer in time.
MF I have done that sort of thing before and ended up walking!
Shades we went to Manchester yesterday. As far as open days go it was quite a good one. Last one next weekend then daughter will finalise her choices.
5.5 miles for me this morning. Lovely way to start the day
Iain impressed with your car cleaning but do take care not to overdo it in your lead up to Chester

Congratulations Emmy and Moore on Tolkien run.
SK amazing times in your new shoes
Big G you are still very much in my thoughts and prayers. Good you are getting out for some exercise and beers. Which park run do you do? We have done 3 different ones now and our favourite is definitely Fountains Abbey for friendliness, beauty and coffee and scones afterwards
I am not keen on running in the dark but if I do it is round my lit town. Still manage to trip sometimes!
No park run tomorrow as off to another uni open day....

((Big G)) thankyou for sharing those beautiful photos xx

Emmy I am fine. Running when I can. No races planned. Just park runs. Hoping my daughter can reach 10 before she is 18 in January so she can get her 10 t shirt.
My aim is to enter Windermere marathon in May and do a half sometime in the spring. It will be my 5th marathon one I have always wanted to do.

I ran this last year. The hills are mainly up and over the bridges above the big roads. Rrabbit describes the course well. Green Dykes Lane is not too bad. Great support, knowing you are near the end and the downhill sweep to the finish is lovely good luck everyone.

Big G, thankyou for your update. The photo album will certainly be something beautiful to treasure.
As you say it will be good if the coroner takes the difficult decisions out of your hands.
It sounds as if you have a wonderful family around you. I hope they can carry some of your heavy load.
As Emmy says your virtual friends are here for you if we can help in any way. I said a big prayer for you and Claire and Jay at church this morning.

Big G, I am so very very sorry for your loss. You have written the most beautiful piece about Claire. Please do keep posting. We are here for you (())
I know you like your park runs, we ran York for the first time today round the race course. A fast route but the best bit for me was finishing with a lady doing her first run.
Like MF you are constantly in my thoughts and I will say a prayer for you every time I run.

Big G, like the others you and Mrs G are constantly in my thoughts. I hope Mrs G is recovering ok. I wonder if the hospital can advise you. I am sure whatever decision you make will be for the best. I am sorry I struggle to find the right words. Lots of prayers. Sure a run is a good idea. Xx
