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 a bit every now and then. It keeps us off the streets. Technically, I suppose it keeps us on the streets. 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.

Reading Half 2014

Reading Half 2014

Kas's free entry into the London Marathon that she won came with side entry into a couple of "training" half marathons. This was one of them.
Brighton Half 2014

The long awaited trip to Brighton for Kas to do the Brighton Half Marathon.
Berlin Marathon

Berlin Marathon

Kas decided she'd really, really like to run the 40th Berlin Marathon on her 40th birthday weekend. It seemed like a reasonable idea.
Kenilworth Half 2013

Kenilworth Half 2013

We had a quick dash up to Kenilworth so that Kas could run the half marathon there. I toyed with the idea of running too but then Kas told me there's no medal. No medal ? No run.
Bedford Parkrun

Bedford Parkrun

A happy combination of circumstances for us today - a long run, a parkrun, and a couple of caches.

A very warm day for running - good job we were only watching.
A Day of Sport

A Day of Sport

Ami had an athletics event up at Stantonbury Stadium this morning. MK Dons had a home game in the afternoon. We went to both.
Newcastle

Newcastle

It was a day for doing a bit of caching to contribute to "The Matrix", so we planned a bit of caching in Newcastle after Kas did Parkrun.

I took my new (ish) camera down to MK parkrun this morning.

Saturday morning in Measham and time for the weekly ritual of doing parkrun.
Lisbon Half

We both entered the 2012 Lisbon Half Marathon, which meant (obviously) that we had to go to Lisbon. We decided to take the kids with us.
