Birthday

Today is hubby’s 50th birthday. (He is MUCH older than me) Madam informed him that as he was now half a century he is officially, OLD. That was not the best news he had today, that’s for sure!
This morning we went to

Where we spent an interesting couple of hours.
The best story I read was from a young man who traveled to Australia and on arrival sent a letter home warning his relatives not to use the same ship, as ‘the biscuits were as hard as mahogany’ and whilst asleep one night the pothole opened and he got drenched, poor man can’t imagine a worse rude awakening, but did make me laugh.
Then it was back on the hop on hop off bus back to

Where we made it to the information centre this time before it closed!
It is a 50p toll to cross the bridge but not for these, who went round the barrier

The bridge being 245feet above water (thanks hubby for pointing this out half way across) is a popular place for suicides one of the first attempts taking place not long after it opened by a young lady who had been jilted. Unfortunately or fortunately depending on your or her point of view, her crinoline skirt acted as a parachute and she floated down in to the mud. She lived to the age of 84years!

Running has not happened but boy we have walked and tomorrow I can’t wait to bounce out of bed very early for that scheduled interval session. (This might be exaggerated,)

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!
