10k


Be Prepared

Chris is taking part in his first 10k run today.
I will post a few photos a bit later
However the weather is atrocious
so I am just preparing a few things

Extra Warm Jacket (tick)
Flask of warming hot coffee( tick)
Thermal gloves and scarf and blogger sent handwarmers ( check)
Lip salve for chapped lips,( check)
Energy boosting nibbles (check)
mobile phone (check)
Wet wipes (check)
Toilet paper! (Check)
Mini radio (check)

RIGHT, THAT'S ME ALL SET

Dunno what Chris is up to.

  1. From illustration, I note you've only got half a Boy Scout there. As a former member, I reckon Lord Baden-Powell would encourage us all to have a bottom half too. I hope Chris has got legs and they are up to a 10k challenge, and wish you both the best.

    1. Perhaps the Scout pictured hasn't earned his 'Legs Badge' just yet. Hence, the 10 K? hehe

  2. If you are promising to post a few photos later, John, shouldn't there be a camera on the list too?

    I couldn't walk ten K in that temperature, let alone run it! Tell Chris Força! (as we say here) from me.

  4. Really John? Really you are going to sit on your backside the whole time Chris is running 10 K ... you best be having ready for him a hot bath, cuppa tea and a meal fit for a runner when he gets to the finish line. xx

  6. You don't feel tempted to join him then - now that would be something to see a photo of.

  7. Too funny! But I'd probably have something a bit stronger than coffee to sip. Yeah... of course you'll share ;-)

  8. Don't let him forget the vaseline for his chafing titties. When I used to run regularly I'd occasionally leave it behind - and when I realised I'd feel real sore. :-)

  14. Chris is either headstrong or foolheaded to do a 10k in atrocious weather. Give him my best!
    Be prepared to coddle.

    Good Sunday to you both!

  17. Does that mean you ae both doing it and if so will you run side by side or at your own pace? Will you chat or just puff and pant - and most important of all - who will get the meal when you get home??

  18. My better half is often put into a supportive role and if he didn't I couldn't do the things I love. You are a good man John!!! A very good man.
