Yes Green

With all this green stuff pouring out of my lungs and nose (apologies if you were eating) I haven’t done much running but I have been booking races. All of them night runs. The first one is a 5 miler on bonfire night in Delemere Forest. Then we are off to to the Lake District to take part in the Grizedale Forest Night Runner 10km. We did this race last year in Santa hats and had a lot of fun. The best time that night was done by a bloke in a skin tight green costume wearing working Christmas lights. Then later on in the New Year it’s back to marathons with a night run in the kielder forest night marathon.

This weekend is Kayaking and wild camping with my daughter and good friends. I’m staying off my feet for long periods of time until this gloop has said its last goodbyes from lungs.

Tom woke up and put his chin on my shoulder looking out to the scene and after a few minutes said “it’s too nice”
