Dad Running a Half Marathon? Surely not!

Apparantly true that Dad is planning to run a half marathon next year around London, and is looking for volunteers to join him! He mananaged 9 miles at the weekend and seems to be taking all this quite seriously. The chocolate has remained untouched at my bungalow for some time now, and I’ve witnessed him eating green stuff and fruit!.

Please send a comment if you fancy joining him on his marathon adventure. I am not expecting many responses!

  1. Wow, Tom are you sure Dad is OK?? Has he also left the ‘London Pride’ untouched?? If yes, call an ambulance right away.

    I hope you and your family are well.

    Love n hugs xx

    1. Debra is very worried about him! He has already lost 11lbs, eating Alpen for breakfast and had an omlette yesterday at Byfords instead of a Full English!
      It would be wrong for me to comment on the London Pride question?! xx

  2. Hey Tom. Tell your dad that I am more than happy to run the half marathon with him. It would be an absolute privilege (and also help me train for my Half Ironman in September 😱 – crazy I know!) Let me know when it is and I can put it in my calendar and meet you in London. Lotsa love to you all. Caroline xxxx

    1. Message from Dad!
      Hi Caroline, great to hear from you. I will leave it to you to tell Debra!. I am planning to run The London Landmarks Half Marathon next year. This year it is in April. There is a website with all the details on it.
      Keep an eye on it, and we will liaise again once the details for next year come out. Keep in touch.

  4. It’s going to be a poor weekend when he comes to nether heyford, no black pudding , sausages or bacon, just HP sauce on a crisp bread. does he prefer Pepsi max or diet coke

    1. Dad say’s you can eat and drink anything in moderation!
      The bad news for him is apparently champagne is about the most healthiest alcoholic drink you can have….and he is married to Debra! Better thah cider I guess!

  5. Half Marathon …… I’d have had money on him being a Mars Bar or Twix Man.
    Marathon… if you’re old enough to know … you know!!
    Good luck to your dad Tom!

    1. According to Dad, Marathon ended up as Snickers? A bit too chewy for me, I am more a Wispa person!
      You would have easily won any bet putting money on a Mars or Twix Man… up to a month ago!.
