we had a wonderful holiday weekend.  on saturday i ran in the bluegrass 10,000 race and managed to complete it in a personal best time of 44min14secs (that’s 7min10secs per mile for those of you who still like to measure things in miles).  it felt good to pound it out with 3,487 other runners and i came in 223rd overall.  we also enjoyed walking the parade with our friend Chris Ford who is running for our district council seat.

today (sunday) has been sabbath-y with some shopping and gardening and a lovely afternoon/evening of rest and books-on-tape (roald dahl).  finally resetting the rest-clock after a wonder-full month.  now we are looking fwd to a visit from the Turners of London and Kath’s (Geoff’s mum) visit in August.  hooray for summer!
