Two Fat Ladies
So we reach run 88. It was an evening run with Gaz and Frank, and we extended it to include both Friezland Lane , Top Mossley and up through Lydgate, heading back down through Greenfield and into Uppermill via the Bridle path. At the start, I felt sluggish if truth be told. I dropped back to a comfortable pace, however shot past them post desperate for somewhere to stop for a wee.
