W8R2 The Rickety Bridge

W8R2 The Rickety Bridge

I have no idea how fast I run, what my average pace is or what my personal best might be. I did however nurture a little dream of being able to run as far as "the rickety bridge", somewhere glinting in the distance, a little vantage point I used to get out of breath driving to.

This is the photo I took tonight, I ran there, took this picture and then my dears, I ran back. 34 minutes. I'm a bit dewy eyed :o)
