Yesterday we went to visit my new great nephew. He is ‘great‘ not because he is fantastic which of course he is, but because he our ‘great‘ nephew (being the son of our nephew) and of course this makes me a ‘great’ aunt and that is because I am fantastic! Had lots of cuddles mmmmmmmmmmm heaven. He is a bit of a lump as at 3 weeks old is a massive 12lbs having come in to the world at 9lbs 10 oz.

 Was lovely to hold a baby again and look forward to watching him grow up.

Madam and her second cousin.

The other family news we found out whilst visiting was that his Uncle (our other nephew-hope you are following) has gained a place on VLM next year. I was not really very pleased!! His first time entering and he gets a place. He drinks he smokes and he gets a place! Think he might pull a Jade Goody, turn up on the day in plimsolls! Fortunately did not see him as might have had to take him for a run. Have left a message with family members that I will take him out training. Sure he would love that running with his Auntie! Not great for his street cred.

Todays run was 9 miles ish. The ish comes about due to technology problems with Mr Garmin (actually might be user error but am not admitting that) but am pleased to say managed an average pace of 9.40. Uneventful run except to pop in to the golden arches to use their facilities!

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!

    Lovely…though technically, I believe that the child of Madam’s cousin is her first cousin once removed. Madam’s children will be his second cousins. Grrr on the vlm place.
