My First Time

Yeah, like I’m really going to put that up here, although for those that are curious it was at the rear of Morrison’s supermarket by the bins. πŸ˜‰ Oh! we had such class in the 70’s! Nope this is my first 10k race since the Achilles nonsense, it appears to be improving. So I’m hoping to comeback faster, stronger and fitter… hmm! Although there are some who say my footwear was to blame, I’m not so sure πŸ˜‰

They have organised a 10k race in Hull called the Haltemprice 10k with up to 500 runners. If your worried about social distancing its okay we set off in three’s at five second intervals. Obviously we 500 will not get close to one another during the 6 mile run. Okay maybe we’re invoking the rule of Trump here. I do mean Donald not the noise I make during Pilates by the way.

I’m nearly ready, the safety pin check has been carried out. For the uninitiated these are for pinning the number to your vest not for the nappy but I guess I’m not to far away from that one? I used to watch the first Rocky film before a run (don’t ask) Later I switched to Chariots of Fire. These days it should probably be Grumpy Old Men πŸ˜‚

Anyaways I’ve got my lovely running partner, Jo to keep me company, now I can strongly recommend running with a younger woman. There again I can strongly recommend doing anything with a younger woman. 😘 I have my race number already, Yoga commences straight after this post and it’s carb loading Pizza for tea (dinner to you posh lot). Enjoy your weekend you lovely people and keep safe.

    I’m sure you know how a song can get stuck in your head, Charlie, and how hard it is to winkle it out. Morrison’s supermarket by the bins is the image forever more imprinted on my brain. I’m going online with my shopping.
    Lovely pics, Charlie, I’m impressed with those muscles. Good luck with the race. πŸ‘

    Really, I think you should get red nappie pins to go with the footwear. Just a suggestion.

  7. Based on what I’ve seen of your legs before, you shaved them for that picture didn’t you? I am rarely lost for words, but today I am sitting here in silence staring at the screen…

    Behind the bins, huh? TMI, dude!

    That guy in the tutu with the platforms…MAN. He has better looking legs than I’ve got.

    Watching Rocky run up those stairs…in hi-tops, no less…oh, yeah…

    Glad you are healing nicely.
