No, luckily he got his mother's looks! (but not her attitude haha) - have posted the pic (I'm the tall sweaty one in the background )
Well that's promising then! Hmm... Not sure the washing machine could cope if I end up with a fellow runner - it has enough trouble dealing with all my gear!
Evening Sarah and SLB! How are things? It's all got a bit quieter on the forum today!
Sarah I hope so! Would love to have a ready-made running buddy Although... he did join Running Club at his junior school and went for about three weeks then said he wanted to give it up. Asked him why... "It's really boring, dad, all we do is run" (!) Clearly need to work on him...
Haha well if she enjoys doing it... what's her address?
RRR - good thanks! How's the birthday going?!
Morning RRR, how was the rest of your bday?
Hahaha, thats so sweet Steve, bless him.....I guess he does have a point....once he starts work (which I know is a while off) im sure he will start to share your enthusiam for running.
But if she starts doing your washing, she may have less time for mine !
With some members of Maltby running club in Berlin this year. Just before the Big 25
Northumberland coastal run 2012 - what a beautiful race, def one for the diary! Im the one attempting to wave in the yellow vest!
My mum holding the olympic torch. This gentleman from Sheffield has raised thousands for charity, he is such an inspiration.
me having just run through brandenburg gates
VLM again...at around mile 22...just before things really started to hurt (I honestly didnt feel as good as I looked)!
Back to the Big 25k at Berlin, just before running into the olympic stadium to finish
Inside the olympic stadium, finishing in just under 2 hours, 2 weeks after VLM
me and my husband after the Big 25k (he actually looked like he enjoyed watching me run this time!)
My second race, Derwent Dambusters 2011 (10 miler)
My first half marathon (Edinburgh) roughly at 10miles
and afterwards, smiling proudly with my medal
and finally for today before you all get bored (you can tell im lost with what to do on a sunday morning because I havent gone for a run...yet), the most recent photo of me, my parents and my brother at my cousins wedding this November
Great pictures Sarah.
Q1: Is there a knack to looking like a runner in a race photo?
In most of mine I either look like a drunk who has strayed onto the course by mistake or (possibly even worse) like I'm completely static (imagine Bruce Forsyth in his famous pose and you have some idea of what I'm talking about).
Q2: Do you find being a doctor is a benefit or a curse as far as running niggles are concerned? Are you comfortable knowing that every little pain is not the end of your running career or do you worry like hell about everything like I do?
Love the pics Sarah! Great action shots!
Sarah, The Blade Runner!!!
Sarah - looking again at the photo of your mum with the guy in green I couldn't help but notice that with the torch and shop front graphics combined she's doing a very good impersonation of the Grim Reaper. Is this why the guy in green looks a little nervous?
A1, Computers are amazing, its unbelievable what you can do with them these days! Im intrigued to see some of your photos now!
A2, Being a doctor is probably a curse as I tend to belittle everything that I have. Im the first to tell others to go to teh doctors, rest etc but im the last one to listen to my own advice. The reason probably why I ended up being on antibiotics for 4 weeks last feb, as I kept putting of going to the doctors and then going back. I think I have learnt from that mistake now though (I hope)
Hi John how are you and lynda? Ive just seen your Gangnam John Style....its fabulous, had be chuckling away for a while
Malcs had to go back and have another look at the photo again
My first challenge of today!
Followed by my second challenge of today.....
...........to go for a run!
What did I learn? To always go for a run before sunday diner, rather than afterwards!
Managed a sickly 7 miles @ 7:24 min/ml
Hopefully the serious training will start a week tomorrow!
Sarah - seriously I can't believe you ate all that!
