You know those days where the run is harder than it should be, you know those days where it does not feel good, you know those days where the first two miles go fine and then you get derailed, well madam had one of those days at parkrun this morning. Mile one and two she was ahead of me and running well, then she stopped, I caught up with her and tried to get her to run with me but she didn’t. I got to the end, turned fully expecting to see her behind me, but no, she was no where in sight, I waited and waited, started to get worried and then phew she appeared on the horizon. She finished and was not happy, I found myself telling her all those things that friends told me after London Marathon. Who knows why it did not go her way today and I know we have all had those days, next week we need to make sure her experience is more positive. (Think I got a PB but don’t tell her!)
Directly after the run we made a bee line for the Devon County Show. Now if you want to read a locals report click here but this is a report from a new Devonians point of view.
There was lots of soft things to touch
lots of fun things to look at, too many to take pics of but I did like these magic Roundabout figures
Then there was lots of displays, dancing JCB’s
then there was amazing food everywhere you looked but I only took a picture of the Cheeses for two reasons 1) I LOVE Cheese Grommit 2) I have been to a few County Shows Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex but don’t recall any of them having a cheese competition
Our day in brief
- The weather was great
- We walked miles

- Who knew there was so many kinds of rabbits
- One pig looks like another
- Alpacas are VERY soft and make funny little noises
- If I had eaten everything I liked the look of I would be very FAT.

- No I am very tired
Can’t wait for next years!
