26 out of 27....yes 9/2 now done!

Yeeha! It was bit rainy...at one point had to put on my new OR rain jacket (get me and my running gear!), I lost Laura for about a minute....but kept on running, until she caught me up (ahem!), and they'd been moving some cattle on one of the lanes I run, so I had a few more obstacles to negotiate than usual, if you see where I'm coming from!

All that aside the penultimate run is done! First 15 hard, gremlins, about stopping and walking, just got to push through them, second 15 mins, felt good, even speeded up a bit for last 5 mins. 'Tis all good. Nearly there! As CRH would say a-maz-ing!
