Knowle Fun Run

What a busy couple of weeks we've had!! Trevor and I have been bombing up and down the motorway, facilitating role-playing training workshops for the NHS. We've spent much of our time in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hampshire. The beauty of where we live in Warwickshire means that nowhere is a million miles away.

Speaking of high numbers, Trevor was on Cloud Nine Million yesterday. His beloved Manchester United became the Premiership champions for the 10th time in 16 seasons, under the leadership of Sir Alex Ferguson. I'm still trying to bring Trevor back down to earth!

Trevor and I had our own small achievement to celebrate as we participated, for the 3rd year, erm.. running, in the 5-mile Knowle Fun Run in Solihull. With a steep hill (run twice in the 2-lap course) and temperatures higher than in Spain, it wasn't the easiest of races. Still, we did it!

Me before the race. Oh look, a balloon is sticking out of my head!


Trevor looks longingly at the sausages...


...and I'm tempted by the ice cream van but manage to resist


after the run...

...sweaty but smiling with relief!

Forget about completing the race... resisting the ice cream van was the real achievement. I'm afraid my resolve would have... er... melted....! ;-)

On such a hot day it looks like you did well to resist the ice creams as Steve said !!

That photo was taken before the race and I didn't want to bring it all back. If there hadn't been long queues after the run, Trev and I would have demolished the whole stock :-)
