W9, R2 . . . nearly there

W9, R2 . . . nearly there

Good run. 14.5 degrees, so a bit warm for me! Wondered fleetingly how I would manage in the summer, if I'm still running of course. Well, I'll cross that bridge when I . . . Oh and there it is, my pretty brick and flint bridge that goes over a stream, how very fortunate! Hope to add a couple of swans up there, but who knows with my luck, they could be sideways or for our Antipodean folk! Have decided to save my last run of this programme to Friday, for various reasons, it will be 18/12 and I love Tchaikovsky's overture, 🎼, I'm really busy on Thursday oh and yes, I'm a bit tired! 😴 Oh no, I am a month ahead of myself, it'll be 18/11. Well never mind, I'll still imagine the cannons going off!

Ha ha, sideways again! Happy running everyone! 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏻

Another stunning photograph...and a lovely run into the bargain.

So close now... the badge is being polished and the bunting is ready... we could all line the river and cheer as you row to the podium!

Slow and steady does it ! :)

Thank you! I shall imagine you all lining the riverside as I run along it on Friday, hopefully. Slow and steady, to savour the moment. 🙂
