The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

He Made It!

Came 12th in his category too. And achieved a Personal Best*.

  1. Congratulations! Not something I would ever wish to do, but I admire those that do and can greatly.
    I think...

  2. Good show - the man looks as fresh as a daisy!


  3. Well done, Mick, I hope it made all those hours of training seem worthwhile!

  4. Hi All,

    Thanks for your kind comments. It was really great fun preparing for and running the event but, my goodness, it did hurt over the last few miles. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to taking part in another one (soon).

    Thanks alos for not commenting on the colour of my shorts - they were selected for recognition purposes only! I didn't see anyone else wearing that colour and Gayle did manage to pick me out of the crowd quickly when she met me for the Jelly Baby drops.
