Great pikkie...well done you...!

I know that feeling so well... as a child, ran up hills, climbed trees, jumped brooks and still had energy left, even by bed time!

What happened....?

I ran against the wind uphill today (post later)..all I can say, is exactly what you said,

"Aaargh..this is hard"!

Go us eh?

thanks.. yes as a child would be out till late in the summer playing football & cricket & other stuff such as probably annoying my older sister who has just turned 65 floss, and so now enjoying her Caribbean cruise lol.

I think you ought change your name to "newfloss" as I don't think you can be all that old if you can do the hills in a head wind! and YES, I know what your age is as you keep telling us enough! lol and that your getting on a bit! but your not! your as young as you feel, I wont call you old!X

Great photo! We are always on the lookout for a cheeky photo on our running adventures - makes a great story to tell our Forum friends! I tried a hill I had wanted to do for ages this week, managed to plod all the way. I found looking about 4 feet in front of me and finding something close to reach was helpful. Well done, looks like a brilliant place to run 😀

Nice one Dave, when I tackle a steep hill I just think I'm being told I have to go shopping. That takes my mind off it and I get a move on! 😀🏃. If only running was that easy eh! Well done.
