Staycation-day 7

Normal service for a Saturday meant of course – parkrun

Mile one-slower than last week, but cooler

Mile one and a bit-met a girl from New Zealand running in sandles, she flew past me on the down, but I tromped her on the hill, she was enjoying the view!

Mile two-I met Steph who was marshalling, we had met cyberally quite a while ago and although she has run Killerton a few times, this is the first time we have met formally! I do hope she did not mind my sweaty hand as I ran over to her to introduce myself. Ewwwww

Mile three-When the Garmin buzzed I glanced down at it, something I rarely do and realised that if I got a wriggle on I could get a PB, so I did and I did, by 6 seconds!

This afternoons trip was to the Seaton Tramway. We parked at Colyton, not far from the Church with a two shaped tower, seems the square bit is 12th century and the round bit added 200 years later!


We caught the Number 12 Tram12to Seaton.

Now Seaton has lovely flowersice creamcircleflowers

DSCN2993but to be honest not much else!

We caught the Number 11 (in Essex pink) back to ColytonDSCN2983



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!

    Well done on your PB. We chickened out of the parkrun today and had a lie in.

    Well done – what happened to little madam – did she stay in bed? Or was she too full after the giant cheese straw?

    Forgotten to mention beating the fairy godmother at word games!
