Day 365: 1095Miles

I’m not sure what to say. It’s all done. I just wanted to get the final blog up. I’ll try and put something up in a few days when it’s all sank in. But for now…

…I went for a nice paced run around one of my more regular routes this evening. I was joined by some new people to the blog and some names you’ll recognise.

Thanks to The Man from Spandau Ballet, The Mond, Bean, The Full Continental, The Boss, The Legal Lady, A Touch of Frost, TD, The Older Gentleman (he’ll kill me for that) and The Sunbed Boy for coming along.

Day 328: All of the awesome

So proud of The Full Continental! She completed the San Fran half marathon fairly unscathed – a little sun burn and twinge in her ankle! I knew she could do it! She is all of the awesome!

Today’s run is over 😉

Day 306: To the lighthouse…

Did a one mile loop before picking up The Full Continental and heading off to Poolbeg Lighthouse. I’ve been wanting to do this run for for awhile. Amazing views of Dublin bay/harbour. Slight problem with the surface of the pier being very uneven and hard. We had to slow down a lot on it and it still felt like my knees were going to give way.

Happy I’ve done it but can’t see it becoming a regular route. At least not the pier part anyway.

Day 247: A run to run

I was texting The Full Continental after work and we decided to go for a run in the Phoenix Park. I was due a long one so had the terrible genius idea that I’d run to the park and then we’d head for four miles and she’d drop me home.

Due to some slight timing issues and a tiny lack of motivation to keep going, I ended up getting a few minutes break so I can’t really say I ran 10 miles but still, it feels like an achievement.

The Full Continental should keep up the good work. She’s doing great running wise and is brilliant company on a run. She’s also so charming, adorable, gifted, funny, and so on (none of this is inspired by the fact I saw her pummel a girl last week in the name of charity boxing!). She is doing well though :)
