Reports suggest it's well and truly winter out there!  But we're a hardy crowd, are we not?

After a few years here on RW, I also joined fetcheveryone.com.  Yesterday, after eight-and-a-half years of logging training & raching there, I passed through the 16000-mile mark.  To be fair, much of that has been done while Streaking.

The temperature has lifted steadily over the past two days, so falling over now has a lower probability, for me at least!  Hope you're fine after your tumble, JT.  I thought of you while watching the documentary of David Bowie's last five years last night.

I'm back at college tomorrow, having finished on 23 Dec.  Think I'm ready. 

Animals, singing & silent, always cheer me up - dogs, last week's kestrel and plenty of sea birds.  The occasional kamikaze cat tests my reactions too.

Ran 6 miles, with photo stops on Waterloo & Crosby beaches.  Clouds stole the sun but I persevered.

You doing mail order, Nessie?  ^ 

What a kind thought, Hazel!  It is true that every Streak starts with a single run [I think Mao Tse-Tung quoted a similar proverb from a Chinese author of centuries before).  So, seven is a fine start for sure.    Well prepare you'll be for 2017.  Dig out the thermals now!

I'm wishing you all a peaceful, injury free and successful New Year.

Well done, Cal and JT, for finishing the year with meaningful mileage.  We've not been short of run-curtailing injuries on this thread, so my NYE wish is for far, far fewer of them. 

Thanks also for your kind comments.  I'll never push anyone into Streaking but this year has been preceded by 9 more of absence free work.    There may or may not be a connection.....

What was formerly NotAStreak reached 365 days last night - although I should run today to make up the leap year!

Fair play on the brassica concoction, Nessie!  4 miles from 8pm in between the swan lake and Crosby Marina with help from headtorch - far too chilly for any impromptus paddling.   Unsurprisingly, I had the beach to myself and clambered over the drifting sand on the prom before taking the cycle track home.  Vision partially impaired by exhaled breath!

It won't keep, Nessie......

You did v well, Nessie!  Obviously highly rated.     Liking the varied mileage sources, JT.

Just been to Crosby beach for photos & a 4-miler.  For balance, here is an 'Everton' Santa:

A similar 9.2 miles to JT for me tonight but at a rather more sedate pace.  Paths, trails and beach were all my own and I dared the white horse breakers to splash my shoes on the tideline!
