Christchuch...

Has been really hit.  I've spent some wonderful time there, it's where P and I got married and we have some great friends (and followers of this blog) in and around the city.

We're too far away to offer any real help but we've dontated to the NZ Red Cross and hope that it makes a tiny difference.  (here if you want to help too).

Paula and I are thinking of everyone there and hoping all our friends are safe and well.

I've got blisters.

but at least I haven't got a splinter like this bloke....

wouldn't let me embed :(

It takes two...

At least it did for me today.  Bobby and I hit a half-marathon today with the aim of getting sub 1:15.

We didn't quite make it.  Bobby dragged me round, set the pace, shielded me from the wind and bigged me up when I was grunting.  Even then I cracked first and slowed us down to a 1:16.

Had a great time though :)

Cheese eating surrender monkeys... or rock hard but bonkers divers...

you be the judge....



There are many many things that scare me a great deal.  Diving in freezing water under the ice has got to be near the top of those that would make me lose control of my bladder....
