Big G - That turned out to be a good race after all then! I think lopping off two minutes from last years time is a great result. I know you said the weather was worse last year.. but 2 mins faster is still going some in my book.
That would be very poignant if Steph could be buried near Claire. You have shown yourself to have such strength of character in dealing with this unbelievably sad situation. You describe how you are feeling so well.. sometimes I find myself thinking that you are reacting in a completely "normal" way - then I remind myself that the word "normal" cannot possibly be used in these sort of circumstances. I'm wittering on here but what I guess I'm trying to say is that I think you're coping brilliantly. You're keeping your head up, keeping going - and you are supporting your family too. As SK said earlier - Claire would be so so proud of you.
SK - Forgot to thank you for the tiger balm tip. Definitely helps! Hope minikoala had a good birthday.
anniesophie - Great result for your race... which is your main target race this year?
Iain - Will be interesting to see what that physio says.
Shades - Hot Chanel bath v plunging into ice cold water....ooooh now that's a difficult choice.....
There was a programme on sport on tv last night and they had a short report on your Hoka shoes Shades. Even though it is a french design the take up in France is very low indeed so they are going all out to try and increase interest in them. They had a stall by the side of a race in Paris and were persuading people to try them for the race itself. Unfortunately the Hoka rep ended up giving the reporter a pair of shoes without double checking and she ran off with two different sizes.. It was interesting seeing them training up the reps as well. Apparently the Hoka is the only shoe which you can completely bend and then it bounces up again. They had a room full of people boomeranging shoes around
3yo is much better thank you. Still not 100% but better. Operation is Thursday - general anaesthetic but we SHOULD be out the same day (On prayer mat already)
