Redhead: Well done for the 28 miles. You can't keep a good redhead down! It's a testament to your fitness that you were able to do it so easily.
I'm with HS in the problem with specs. I can't imagine running or walking with my varifocals! Good running from you, HS.
WtnMel: The Open beckons! My memory of having bathrooms done is that you can't just retire to a corner. They seem to call you in every five minutes to ask what you want where and are you sure??? etc. When we first moved here we were overwhelmed by the quality of workmanship of everyone we called in on home improvements. Now Exeter is one of the fastest growing places in the UK. East of the city they are building pretty much new towns of houses. Therefore, it's now very difficult to get anyone to come and do anything, as all the builders are on these new developments. Your photo is lovely, with the wild flowers. The wheelchair athlete has done well on such a tough terrain.
Aquarius: I'm always impressed by Hackney Marshes, and, indeed, all efforts in the greater London area to preserve wild spaces. I've had a week in Reading and Ealing. No running but lots and lots of very fast walking and running up stairs and escalators. I hope you enjoy the athletics. I was a volunteer at the 2012 Paralympics at the Olympic Stadium leading athletes round all the tunnels at the back and leading them out from the call rooms. I expect the layout has changed dramatically since West Ham took it over.
Our shouty Handel concert went well. The whole Baroque thing of strings, kettle drums, trumpets and us singing louder and louder! An audience of over 90, apparently.
I'm looking forward to sitting watching our local side play cricket tomorrow. It's a lovely way to spend Saturday afternoons.
Bye everyone. Good luck in your future running.
