Odenwälder Herbstlauf


I did the half marathon of the Odenwälder Herbstlauf today. I had been aiming for a time of less than 2 hours, but given that it was so warm (26°C), and some inconsiderate planner had put quite a few hills in the way, and my training partners won’t run a whole kilometre without piddling and sniffing (three whiney excuses) I was quite pleased in the end that I finished my first half marathon at all. The time of 2:03:02 gives me something to improve on for next year.

Yes, of course

This puts my mind at rest. Any reservations about the Kurpfalzschule's ability to tutor my child in the language of Shakespeare are now banished :-)

My old mountaineering boots didn't make it back from Chamonix

If you look closely, you can see the word "Made in Italy" on the sole.

Ice Cream in Marlay Park

Kieran and his siblings tried out the playground in Marlay Park, Dublin. All went well until his grandfather decided that children need ice cream once the sun shines.
As the picture shows, Kieran's enjoyment of said ice cream is way ahead of his proficiency in directing it to the correct area of his face.
