Training on Saturday: Mary and I ran a loop of West Basin in preparation for Mary's first ever half marathon in two week's time. And it was her longest run. We also saw Andy, Ruth and Ewen at Acton when we finished, and I joined them for a couple more kilometres.

Keith Bateman has taken a big chunk off his World M55 10k record, running 31:51 on the weekend.

Hatches: Due last week, Jen Bright is still infanticipating, as far as I know. [edit: I was wrong; Daniel James, born this morning, all is well!]

Matches: Congratulations on your marriage on Saturday

Abi & Will, from Abi's Facebook page. Some of the wedding photos I took appear in a post, below.


  1. Couple of things in there Speedygeoff, be as fast as Keith Bateman, that 10 k is quick by any standard. And hold my breath waiting for Jen to give birth. Hurry up Jen !!
    You are going well to be leading the points score, or as I just wrote and deleted the " points scare" It's tough now so soon into the series. Good luck, be consistent & injury free all year.

  2. 31:51! Man that's quick. Keith would lap Trevor Jacobs 3 times, but then I guess Trev is really an Old Man now.

    We were infanticipating Jen's baby last week. Shouldn't be surprised - she's always late.
