no more turning away

Nice long runs of 17k, 18k, and 24k in the first three days this week have helped the marathon training along a bit.

My training priority must be to stay uninjured! I am starting to forget already the new year resolution to "stretch stretch stretch".

One day I will load up some maps of where my long runs go. (When I get around to figuring out how to).

I attended Ken Lorraway's funeral this afternoon. There was a large turn-out representing all generations, and a great tribute to a compelling hero.

And people there rather stunned at the suddenness of it all.

On reflection I would say, all the more reason for us to get on with the important things in life.

"No more turning away
from the weak and the weary
no more turning away
from the coldness inside
just a world that we all must share
it's not enough just to stand and stare
is it only a dream that there'll
be no more turning away?" - Pink Floyd

  1. And Ken was far too young to die. Far too many sad events have happened so early in the year - a good reason to run.
