Day 361: Blood curdling screams

I still don’t know how I feel about this coming to an end but I guess it’s not a bad thing!

A short run around a local quarry. It’s usually completely quiet there but The Schemer, Crazy Faye, Crazier Minnie and I caught up on two neighbours. Somehow our panting and pounding didn’t alert them until a the last second and we scared the life out of them. I felt bad for them but the blood curdling scream made my run. Possibly one of the funniest things I’ve witnessed during my challenge and I’ve witnessed some odd things in the last year!

Day 360: Introducing Faye

Early for a Saturday. Myself and The Schemer headed out with Crazy Faye for something close to 11 miles today. Though I had some technical problems at the beginning which cut a mile of the route.

We both has right knee problems but Crazy Faye had no problems except having to put the odd dog in its place!

Day 334: The evangelism continues

Three of us headed out today for a run today – myself, The Schemer and Rihanna. Really nice way to spend a bank holiday Monday morning.

Shockingly, they both just confirmed they signed up :)

Day 333: Promises!

A wet run today with The Schemer. It ended up being really refreshing and cleared out the hangover cobwebs :)

Last night, The Schemer and Rihanna both said they’d join me for the half marathon in September. This was after a few glasses of wine though so I’ll believe it when I see the confirmation emails girls!

Day 305: Milestones coming quick and fast

Unlike my pace!

60 days left! I can’t wait for a day off! I’m also slightly worried that I’ll lose my mind without a run up

Ran with The Schemer today which was fun. More importantly I met baby Zimmy. He’s so crinkly and cute! :)

Day 276: Better late than never??

A day for a nice “long” run.

Nice easy pace with The Schemer for company. Great weather. Beautiful views. Maybe a tad too many hills.

It just feels like it. So much food and wine!

Good company on my run earlier, and for a glass of wine now, in the form of The Schemer.

Day 121: Brisk but nice out there

Early (ish) morning for my run today. No company besides the promises – not naming the guilty party but she knows who she is 😛

It was brisk out there this morning but pretty nice :)

Day 110: It was the day before Christmas…

…and nothing was stirring, not even Dr Wine or her sister. Luckily The Schemer could join me. We met up at the local community centre as the roads were icy and we reckoned it would be safer. Run itself was okay. The surfaces around The Centre are a little bit softer than the roads and footpaths that I’m used to. That meant my knees felt better throughout the run. There was a biting wind at times that made it a little tough though.

I spent the rest of the day being very grateful that I ran before the snow started. Everything is white ish now but it has stopped at least!
