Not a reference to the ice-cream but something we came across on holidays.

There was a ‘romantic’ festival in the village we stay in on one of the Saturday nights.

My eldest kid asked me what romance was and I told her:

It’s what mums and dads had before the kids were born.

Anyway, they had all sorts of things associated with romance – the following photos should give you the idea.

Some of these images (like the BSA bicycle) are not that romantic but there was a fair dose of nostalgia ladled on as well.

On the running front I’m on the cusp of starting on a another 3 months of marathon training. The Dublin Marathon is about 11 or 12 weeks away so I’ll need to start on the LSRs in a serious way soon. I did a 14 and 16 miler while I was on holidays so if I keep that up I’ll be able to have a reasonable day out in October.

  1. Just catching up on your holiday exploits. I think the advert is for an anti-ageing cream. You too can look this good at 70. The first return to LSR’s is a pain in the butt. Enjoy.

    • The long run last night didn’t go as expected! A week of low nutrition took it’s toll and I bailed out just before 7 miles. 3 weeks of bread sticks, pasta, pizza, beer and wine meant that the LSRs on holidays went well, despite the heat, – loads of fuel in the tank. Now it’s porridge and a cheese sandwich as fuel for a LSR – need to put more fuel in the tank!

      Congrats on the Tri win!
