I'm back yet again !!!!!!

I was a regular on here for a long time, but lost my way so to speak. I have been plagued with injuries, mostly achiles , but I'm back, feeling good and enjoying my running again.

A lot has changed in my life since I last posted, I'm a granfather to 2 beautiful girls, and another grandchild on the way. But the biggest change has been giving up alcohol, i found it had crept up on me and had made me not nice to be around, so on June the 5th 2016, i just stopped, it saved my marriage and my family, I have fallen in love with my beautiful wife again and found happiness with my family.  I lost a stone in weight to start with, I had ballooned due to the inactivity and drinking. Not at my ideal weight yet but I'm working on it.

So! plans, hoping to run London next year, get to my 50th parkrun by the end of the year, and just keep running..

Bad dress rehearsal ???

I've got the Peterborough half this Sunday, last long run over a week ago. I did parkrun on Saturday, another sub 29 minute 5k, so pleased with that, not chuffed though. I have been on this low carb, well near starvation diet really, lost over 7lbs, so ...
