On the Run

Running is Kas’ great passion, and to some extent it’s a passion of Kev’s too. And the girls dabble in it a bit every now and then. Going on the run keeps us off the streets, although technically, I suppose it keeps us on the streets. Running provides multiple benefits to both physical and mental health, as well as providing the opportunity to spend ridiculous amounts of money on shoes.
Here are a few of the events we’ve visited recently.
We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves…The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this craving for freedom. No one can say, ‘You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that.’ The human spirit is indomitable.

Kas entered the 2015 Manchester Marathon. Technically, I suppose, she entered the 2014 Manchester Marathon and then deferred it for a year.

We’d heard from friends who’d done their other events that the Rock ‘n’ Roll running series were excellent to enter.
