Mr JCR contacted Alzheimer’s Research to tell them about the 2018km challenge I am undertaking and they duly provided a tasteful tee-shirt for me.
Here I am this morning braving The Beast from the East Part 2 – the bulge around my middle is the hidden pouch pocket, stuffed full of middle aged woman’s essentials – namely tissues for the ever-present running nose.
Witnessed by our friends N&A, there weren’t that many people around to be bothered by the picture taking or the video of me looking at my most inelegant.
Today’s run 11km+
I met 3 other runner’s similarly attired all who gave a cheery wave – Londoners aren’t that friendly normally.
An articulated lorry stopped to allow me to cross a junction even though it was his right of way.
Two hi-vis men allowed me to pass near a building site
The Beast from the East Part 2, has brought both snow and a flurry of good manners today.

I think he’s taking a break – so squats and something tempting with kettlebells will have to happen.
