Congratulations on your graduation run!! Am really pleased for you :D :D

Hopefully I'm back on track now (started week 4 yesterday), so should be joining you in the graduate club in a few weeks time.

Hope you're not going to disappear from the forum and forget us little people now you've got you la-di-dah graduation badge? ;)


Thank you peter ;-)

Glad to hear your back on track. ;-) I will keep the bubbly on ice ready for you ;-)

I won't be disappearing from here no way. This is where it all began for me ;-)

I won't be on much though in the next two weeks as off my holiday ;-)


Hope you have a nice holiday - bring me back a stick of rock ;)


Ha ha thank you. They don't do sticks of rock on Egypt I could bring you back cleopatra? Ha ha ;-)


ooh t'Egypt eh? Be a bit warm for running there I should think.

Are you doing the pyramids, valley of the kings etc? Or just dossing about round a pool at an all inclusive resort? ;)


I plan on running either early morning or late evening along the beach as it's right outside our hotel. I'm not doing pyramids or anything this time done all that in January and May ;-) this time is just to relax and enjoy the chill out time off work and life ;-)


Love to see someone complete their journey and make plans for the next. I love 'whilst away on holiday on the beach with the sunset'

Well done you! I can't wait to feel the way you do too!
