A most awesome day today, one of the very best :)

I ran a great half marathon this morning in glorious weather to the Linford Wood parkrun course, there I met up with friends I'd not seen since last year :D

We all enjoyed a good catch-up and then I ran home to complete the half marathon :)

This afternoon I went for a bike ride to make the most of the magical weather... Details in the 'On Your Bike' thread.. It was special :)

And a nice classic car spot to round off a truly magical day :cool: See the appropriate thread for details ;)

Today, after this morning's run, I have now run 805 miles since the start of the year :D

That means I'm now just shy of 70 miles from John O'Groats in my virtual double LEJOG challenge :)

And then I have to run back to Land's End but that's easy... It's heading south and therefore downhill all the way!

Many years ago I was driving across Norfolk with my then 13 year old daughter navigating. She got a bit lost on the map and asked me to stop at the river bridge ahead. I did as asked and she hopped out of the car and leaned over the bridge parapet. Then she jumped back in the car picked up the map and announced "OK I know we are heading west now so no problem" I knew we were heading East towards Great Yarmouth but I didn't want to disrupt her learning so I simply asked her how she knew. "The river was flowing out from under the bridge away from me so I know that way is south she pronounced delightedly" "Erm, why does that make it south?" I asked. "Don't be silly Daddy you know all rivers flow to the south!!" #-o

So I think you may be right Jim!! :-D

Watch out when you cross the border Jim, they have taken down one of its most iconic bridges, the Union Chain Bridge. Nothing political or symbolic just a massive renovation to preserve it for the future. It vies in my mind with Carter Bar on the A68 for being a dramatic border crossing. The ones on the A1 north of Berwick on the east coast or the M6/A74 on the west coast are truly boring and bear no comparison.

Jim, just for fun, Google search Rover P5 Apollo. An interesting vehicle (that is, at the time of writing, showing up in "Bangers and Cash").

James, I did. I love that. Best camper ever and perfect for my LEJOG challenge... It'll use no petrol between J O'G and LE as it's - as we all now agree - downhill all the way so it will be coasting!

Today I got home from a great bike ride and found my Saxo looking like this...

My neighbours are having a new kitchen fitted and today the fitters were cutting the new laminate worktops... They make some evil chippings and dust so they very kindly covered my car to keep it clean :D

How thoughtful! I was delighted :D
