Nike Running Challenge 5k at Ashford

Took part in my first organised running event tonight – a 5k run at the Designer Outlet Centre at Ashford. The 5k started at the Nike Factory store (who organised the event) and was comprised of six laps of the complex. The most I have managed whilst shopping is two.

Posted an official time of 27:42… 8:54 mins/mile @ 6.73 miles/hour. Am pleased with that time and great experience to run with other people around me.

Clearly I couldn’t take my own photos, so Dad was on hand to record it.

The new chiseled me…

Hardcore Vegan…

One lap to go…

All done!

Basking in our glory!

All in all a really good experience and I definitely have a taste for it now. Time to purchase a scrapbook to save all my medals in!

FRIEND Animal Rescue – Leroy

The third batch of photos taken at the FRIEND Animal Rescue Sanctuary in East Peckham. These are all about Leroy!

What do you mean, I have dinner all over my face?

Sleepy…. with raspberry juice on his head.

Very sleepy.

Zzzzzzz.

Leroy LOVES having his neck scratched! That’s a definite bliss-face.

FRIEND Animal Rescue – Ruby, Scarlet et al

Visited a fund-raising festival at the FRIEND Animal Rescue Sanctuary in East Peckham yesterday. I took a lot of photographs, mainly of the gorgeous inhabitants, so I shall post them here in batches. The second batch has a decidedly piggy feel…

It was great to see Ruby & Scarlet out and about, totally chilled, doing what Piglets love to do – stick their snouts into everything.

Pigs do love their mud.

Of course, others love the shade on a hot day…

FRIEND Animal Rescue – Gurtie

Visited a fund-raising festival at the FRIEND Animal Rescue Sanctuary in East Peckham yesterday. I took a lot of photographs, mainly of the gorgeous inhabitants, so I shall post them here in batches. First up is a great old girl called Gurtie who very much enjoyed a cold shower on a very warm afternoon.

Check out their site and the great work they do. Give a donation if you can – they are not just after money – they constantly need building materials, food etc.

James & Laura – First Dance

Had a really nice night at James and Laura’s Evening Reception. I took a load of photos so will sort them out in due course for them, but couldn’t resist posting these.

Big congratulations to the happy couple.
