Now, I've decided there's been far too much doom and gloom and me moaning recently so now for something fun!
Well it's called a 'fun' run, but how anyone can find running fun is beyond me! Give me swimming any day.
But Lloyd has started running. His aim is to do the Kerikeri half marathon towards the end of November, and he's been doing really well. For someone who has never run in their lives I think he's brilliant! Today there was a 10km fun run along the coast road to Whangaroa. So he and Sara and Paula thought it would be a good one to do and for Lloyd and Paula ( Sara runs a lot) to get an idea of how much their training was paying off.
Danny, Nick and I DROVE the route and waited at the end!
There is something really lovely about watching happy people complete the run, whether they run, walk or stagger. Everyone was smiling. It was great. They all did brilliantly and Lloyd did it an awful lot faster than he expected to and even said at the end that it was good. ( strange man!!) I'm very proud of him.
So here they are, the happy runners, Sara, Lloyd and Paula.
