    Well it's that time of year again....when the cold Sou'westers start blowing horizontal rain mixed with salt spray over the sea wall at Southsea....and 15,000 lycra clad loonies set off on a brisk ten miler around Portsmouth !

    Anyone else running the Great South this year?


    I squeaked in with a last minute place courtesy of SSAFA .

    (Who? Read all about it HERE ! )

    Be interested to hear who else I might bump into in my usual spot - at the back with all the shuffling wheezy types :)

    Good on yer H-H,

    forecast for tomorrow down here on the palm-fringed South Coast Riviera is...ah...1 degree C and possible showers :)

    Looking forward to a slow jog around Pompey, goaded on by the intoxicating rhythms of the Portsmouth Batala Samba band ( and the mad Irish on the corner of Churchill Avenue!)

    Any SSAFA supporters in the area - come on down ! ( but bring a brolly.....'cos if it doesn't rain I'll eat my shorts.....)
