Outings on my motor cycle and age weighted athletics results

I'm still not doing many miles on my motor bike so not long ago I set off on it to have a look at a couple of parks where there are parkruns. Finsbury Park is very convenient for me, I can jog over to it before the run, but it does have some killer hills on the 5k route, indeed I'd go so far as to say there are no flat bits, and climbing the steep one twice, once on each lap, must add considerably to the time taken.

N8 T-Shirts

Today I'm wearing my all-time favourite t-shirt, a red one with this on it:



I got it in Portobello Market, of all places, about five or six years ago. It's getting a bit faded already, and there are several holes in one side, so I have just been doing a quick bit of googling to see if I…
