Hello! Welcome to my blog.
I'm a menopause-dodging tomboy, blessed with a million different varieties of undeserved privilege and yet never short of something to rant and whine about. Wife and cycling companion of eL Bee!, mother and running companion of Valyrian Plastic, connoisseur of Cumbrian roads and tearooms, intermittent knitter of socks, and usually either off my face on endorphins or suffering from withdrawal symptoms.
Do not make the mistake of assuming that my habitual facial expression is a smile.

Q&A is a new system to help us understand each other. It's a bit like the Member of the Month interview system, in that you can propose questions for others to answer.
Here are the questions that this user has answered:
what are your favourite weather conditions to run in? Read all responses
Cool and dry, with a slight breeze. Or a clear, cold day with thick compacted snow underfoot.
What's your least favourite race distance and why? Read all responses
Marathon. Too far to run in complete comfort even after training specifically for the distance, but not far enough to justify *not* running all the way.
What gets you out of the door when the CBA's are coming over the hill to get you? Read all responses
My daughter saying, "Muuuuuuuuuum, can we go for a run?" Otherwise, nothing will get me out of the door if the sofa is beckoning ;)
What's been your best running-related purchase? Read all responses
My Garmin 205. Can't believe I ever managed to run without it.
Which Fetchy do you fancy the most? Read all responses
eL Bee!, of course, by several country miles, since the question suggests I'm only allowed one. But there are some seriously fanciable Fetchies out there ...
When you were at school, what did you think of running? Read all responses
I ran loads when I was little because I was quite an active kid generally, but by adolescence I was the stereotypical podgy geek with braces and glasses and thought of running for its own sake as something to be avoided, even if it meant begging my Latin teacher for extra work during PE periods instead.
