Why are we waiting?

Many months ago, we were told to expect a baby. Today. Well, it's not here yet, and I want to know why. It's probably got something to do with NHS cutbacks.

Vikki continues to be in good health, if a little tired and fed up, and as far as we can tell, the baby is doing fine, just not quite ready to make an appearance yet. I'm guessing we'll see some action at the weekend, but I know nothing, so don't hold your breath.

First Run of 2008

Wendy, Margaret, Christine, me, Dave, Ruth, and Carole after the race

Today, we were in the wee village of Lumphanan for the Detox 10K, the first 10K race in 2008 in Scotland. It was cold and damp, but there was a good atmosphere and we enjoyed our day out. There had been warnings about the hill at the start of the course, but it didn't seem that bad. What really got me was the muddy farm track at about 6k which seemed to drain what little energy I had left. I finished in 55:23 - pleased at a new PB, but disappointed that I haven't beaten Vikki's best ;) and with a fair bit of work still to do to get down to 50 minutes.
