Week 40 was my best week in ages!

miles completed =  25.39

miles to go          = 59.74

Week 41 wasn’t so good, due to frequent snow showers and icy conditions, but still…

miles completed = 16.11

miles to go          = 43.63

I think it’s safe to say I’m going to complete my challenge.  It’s just a case of when!

Here’s a photo of some of the Christmas cards we’ve received.


Some are silly, some sentimental and some just make you go “aw”.  I wonder what the term is for a collection of Christmas cards?  Whatever it is, they are very much appreciated and the house is definitely feeling a bit more Christmassy now!

I took this photo yesterday whilst out on my run.


I always think it’s amazing how, at this time of year, everything becomes so empty.  The trees have lost their leaves, the bushes around here have withered away and the colour has disappeared.  And yet in a few months time it will gradually reappear.

Nature is pretty clever, isn’t it?

So last week I wrote about the new teaser trailer previewing the next Star Wars film (due out in December 2015!)

And lo and behold, what did I find next but a trailer for Jurassic Park 4, due out in June 2015.

Part of me thinks its a real shame that there seems to be no original ideas anymore for films.  However I would be lying if I didn’t say the trailer looks great and I’m sure I will be taking my seat in the cinema next year, as excited as the next person!

As the song says, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  And here’s some of the Christmas decorations in town.


No snow yet which is good.  I’m not too keen on the snow!

Week 38

miles completed = 24.82

miles to go      = 101.87


Week 39

miles completed = 16.74

miles to go     = 85.13


Such a milestone, finally below 100 miles.  The end is in sight!

I was 4 years old when I first saw Star Wars at the cinema in 1977.  Now I’m 41 and ridiculously excited about this:-


38 years later and the Force is still strong!

Every day hundreds of geese fly over us.  It’s such an amazing sight.  Here’s a photo from earlier this week.


I love watching the way they turn in flight whilst maintaining their shape.  I don’t know where they’re coming from or where they’re heading for but the sky is always full of them.

Away on holiday last week so did not get quite as much running done as I’d hoped:-

Week 36

miles completed = 16.12

miles to go      =   146.93


Week 37

miles completed = 20.24

miles to go =  126.69


I’m determined to finish this by the end of the year, but I must remember I actually have until the end of February 2015 so I’m pretty sure I will complete my challenge on time.

A sure fire sign that Autumn is here – a beautiful but frosty morning.
