About JovialGnome

Heavily into running 20 years ago with a PB of 1.42.00 in the Shrewsbury Half Marathon in 1985 and 3.48.49 in the Telford Marathon in 1986 - then for some reason I just stopped and have done little or no physical exercise between then and 2 or 3 years ago! I've now moved to Boston in Lincolnshire where I really enjoy looking after my 13 Ryeland ewes and 1 ram and am rejoicing in the distinct lack of hills! I suspect that sub 4 hour marathons are gone forever but hey, I'm having a great time trying!

And so it ends

And a very enjoyable if rather cold parkrun at Great Notley was how my Janathon ended. Wobbled round a very pleasant two lap course in 32.28 which I was more than happy with given how icy it was and if you’re … Continue reading

Only a parkrun to go
