Monday 27th November 2023 My mother was a tailor

Lyrics: My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gamblin' man

Yesterday's were Judy Collins with Send in the Clowns

What: an hour or so

Why: run with M78

Going to get very wet.
Progress is rarely a straight line. There are always bumps in the road, but you can make the choice to keep looking ahead.

    Morning, doesn't sound nice Ale.

    What: rest day, will do a walk likely
    Why: need one after the last days

    Last rest: today

    Lyrics: no

    Morning again!

    Did I say decent run yesterday, Hazel? If not I'm saying it now!

    Good weekend, Dustin!

    Sorry to hear about the car being broken into, Wabo. Not a good afternoon! Thought Spurs deserved at least a point. 

    What: 76+ minutes with M78. Slightly shorter than last week in terms of distance, yet longer in time

    Why: foul weather! Lots of negotiating puddles including holding onto the railings next to the river; no wonder the road is called Ford Lane.

    What - 10K up to Greenwich from the Canary.
