I’d arranged to go for a run with Lesley last night, and as the weather worsened as the day went on I was expecting a text message saying she’d changed her mind. I obviously didn’t give her enough credit as she was still up for a run even though by the time I turned up on her doorstep having run the 400m from mine to hers I was soaked to the skin.
She set a decent pace and we headed out round Hala then along the cycle path and down the main road to the pointer roundabout, and then back up Bowerham hill. She was running strong and I was quite happy to just be out moving my legs, and it was no easy run for me. We completed a very windswept and drenched 5.1 miles in 44 minutes which was pretty good. Get a few more longer runs under her belt and she’ll be more than ready for the Wagon and Horses 10 miler in august, only trouble is its the day after Ems Lancaster hen night, and Lesley being a bridesmaid and organiser might have a poorly head…….Viking you’ll have to give her tips on distance running the morning after !
So at our wedding…..it’ll almost be a full house of runners: Groom ( err Me ), Bridesmaids ( Sarah and Lesley both run ), Bride ( Em – thinking about it but don’t tell anyone ! ) and then that leaves my best man……..come on Lee you can’t let the side down? I’ll await the abuse !
