A rather damp start to the day Very Happy

Nostell #156

Quite surprisingly, the rain stopped between the car-park & the Stable-Block, where we gather
Think B-I-G, not a loose-box!; http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/4099327

As it was the 3 year anniversary, it was deemed a 'beach party' for some reason
Runners turned up in Hawaiian shirts, 'BayWatch', bikinies, etc...
One guy even ran with rolled up trousers/braces, pipe & knotted hankie on head

We (my place of work) fielded a;
Medical Photographer
Consultant Hand Surgeon
Theatre Sister


I started close to the back, not feeling confident, & 'pottered' for the first 1/2 lap
I had my eye on a 'marker' (Lisa, my friend Phils wife, as we're fairly well matched in time/pace)

I took a camera, I'd meant to take it again, for quite a few weekends
I hadn't realised it was the 3rd birthday, so it was good timing

Maybe I started too far back, as I made my way up to her, but she beat me for about 5 seconds (happy, as she was a minute ahead, at start of lap 2)



44th/134 @ 25:37


Someone else had a camera, if you can see these???

It's slightly annoying, as I ran the first events at both Nostell Priory, & Pontefract

As of Saturday 15th.......
Nostell #155 (1st event = 26th July 2014)
Pontefract #322 (1st event = 7th May 2011)


Ran Rothwell #2 this morning
My 'biker buddy' (ex-Nurse) Olivia turned up, to have a go!


Interesting course, 2 & 1/2 laps of the main grassed area & around the skate-park/tennis courts

61st @ 24:57 (my timing)

Rothwell #2 photos

If you look through, you see Olivia ('Poppy Run' t-shirt, baseball cap, & arm tattoos), and maybe - if you're unlucky, me.......................

Here's Olivia, without the 'Poppy Run' t-shirt, but auburn & blue hair
Also, at Rothwelll Park, co-incidentally

And....................... my other buddy (who, sadly, I see less often than Olivia) Kirsty is in the pics, as 'Assistant Race Director'

Not running this AM, as evidenced by the time of typing
Think my Plantar Faciitis is trying to return


Last week was Nostell Priory #164 (my 101st event)

A very steady, barely heard the countdown, start

Took it easy, for a 61st/207 @ 26:01
Slowest ever there
