First bit of bling

First bit of bling

So it was only 3k and a few 4 year olds may have finished before me, but if I hadn't done c25k I wouldn't have been able to run the whole course, (I wouldn't have been able to run any of the course to be honest). It was a really fun day with nearly 300 Santas running around town and about £1000 raised for a local hospice. I'm off to trawl t'internet to find my next event :)

(I will post photos of me togged up as santa when I get them off sons phone)

Congratulations :) what a lovely bit of bling. It sounds lovely and a great achievement to run the whole way :)

I have some fond memories of Sleaford as I used to visit every January in my younger days to oversee a seed business on the edge of the town.

It wouldn't be Sharpe's later to become advanta seeds? I worked there for many years :)

Yes - that's right! I used to come to audit the finances. I can't recall the name of the finance director but I do remember what a lovely gentleman he was.

Actually, would it have been Peter?

It was Peter Thompson, and he was a lovely man. I was in the sales dept, so probably never met you.

Yes - Peter. A real gem. What a small world :)
