Once upon a time in suffolk

Once upon a time in suffolk

Where do I begin! What a day.

So Beth and I planned to do a 60 minute run on part of the Tarpley 10 mile route today as a training exercise in prep for the 10m in 2 weeks. Sounds simple... ☺️

So I parked my car at the finish and jumped into beths car which we parked at the 8km point, calcilating that it should take us 60 minutes to run back to my car. Off we went... And took a wrong turning at 6km, so after we turned around we made it back to my car after a lovely 12km run. That's when it went down hill.... I'd left my car keys in beths car which is now 4 miles away as the crow flies, oh and I hadn't locked my car either, what to do, neither of us had the energy for another 4 miles. So I called the Mrs and asked her to bring my spare keys, while we waited Beth suggested we go to the pub opposite for a few 🍺🍷☺️☺️, now I hadn't brought my wallet and beths purse was in her car, a aah a brainwave apple pay! So off we pop to the pub for a few drinks, Beth is telling the story on Facebook when her iPhone goes flat! We hadn't yet paid for the drinks. So not only did I get my wife to drive 30 miles to rescue me I asked her to pay for our drinks too. Now taking her out for a meal..... Grovel... Grovel..
