I went for a run this morning…

…unlike my normal MO, I can’t prove it, ‘cos my GPS went wacky and then my running app crashed when I got home, before I could save the data. I am somewhat miffed that having mentally prepared for getting up at 0-My-Goodness-600h, and then actually done it, got out of the house in a timely […]
