AMAZING day all round…. having run almost 20 miles from the Staines area and had some lovely company along the way including the fantastic Paul Jones [family friend for almost 30 years]!! We arrived!
Orlando then, as ever the professional actor, whipped into the loos, changed into jeans, watched 2 overs and sprinted off for a TV casting!! Let’s hope its his lucky break 🙂
Met @runningactress bearing cake and other goodies and settled down to watch the match!!
Aside from it being freezing cold…. Seriously – JUNE???? felt more like February! We were frozen to the bone. But very happy as England and Sri Lanka both had cracking games!
And then off again to run another half marathon before kipping down under the stars? or rather the dripping wet trees….
Or so it felt. Lack of sleep, couple of wrong turns, long grass meaning some paths almost impossible to run along… But still we made it with 10 mins to spare before the start of the Bristol game!!!
And who was there to meet us but the lovely @runningactress and mummy Brooke!! Bearing cake and other yummies.
Had a lovely mention on the radio from the @tms lot – thank you!! And met some cool people at the game – including a couple of Cricket coaches from Cardiff.
Shame the match was stopped due to rain :(. Good innings from Sri Lanka!
Also an awesome naval dude going by the name of “Fred Perry” sponsored us a tenner!! @lordstaverners – bring it on!!!
Finished on 275 miles today – and 3 matches down!
I did also try to snog this lovely lady in my sleep, #sexyslugfuntimes
Wow what a match!!! Made all the aches and pains and niggles worth it…
Dream come true – we had a shout out from the TMS box…. Maybe we can pop by for tea and cake… Thanks to @runningactress for her fab tweets…
Go Team Brooke.
Oh yeah, and Monday was WET! Swimming through the canal more apposite than running. Perhaps we should have made this challenge a duathlon
Almost forgot we met lovely Stu and Nate along the way on Sunday – any little hellos like that are really good. So come find us along the canal, or at a match [but only if you come bearing cake…]
