Ups and Downs

9 Jun

Well we are almost half way through 2016 already and boy what an eventful year so far! Not all of it bad, but the bad is as bad as it gets, two of the most amazing people I know have passed away this year Pop (My Dad) and My ‘Aunt’ Jean. Both are going be missed so very much.

The good has been about as good as it gets, with Ashley & Aaron giving Vicky and Myself our first Grandchild! Please all say Hello to Dylan

And before the year is out, Aaron & Stacey will have given us our second Grandchild (A Girl this time).

So with life stuff, Not much running has been done but plenty of eating and drinking has been! So back to slow, porky Kev again. I have however managed to keep some running going so my fitness hasn’t totally gone (not quite). I managed to get round the Middlesbrough 5K in a time of 24:49 (which considering my times lately I was pretty pleased with that) it was also faster than last years time.

I have also entered the Great North 10K (3rd July) and the Middlesbrough 10K (4th September) and I am also looking at entering the Redcar Half Marathon later this year, thought I better had just in case I’m successful in my London Marathon ballot 😳

Finally on the running front I have managed to complete 50 parkruns (only took slightly over 3 years), so hopefully it won’t take quite as long to get to 100.

Hope everyone is having a great year, let’s hope the end is better than the start.
