Dodging the Bullets on the Painthorpe Run

So another day, another run and another night of perfect weather conditions. Cold, clear and bright. Also perfect for launching missiles at unsuspecting runners. No I’m not kidding. Jack’s rugby training was on  giving us a chance to do our usual route round the nearby villages and estates, now most of these areas are really nice, some parts of it are even picturesque (especially during the day when you can actually see!) Unfortunately the actual rugby pitches have ‘Scratter-Ville’ located to one side. The kind of place where anything goes, and usually does. Come the summer months big and little Scratters alike  rob everything from the slates on the clubhouse roof to the rugby posts, drive mini scooters through training teams and when the weather warms up……………….Tatt fest,flabby bodies overfilled with special brew, on show for all to see (and thats just the women!) the BBQ overflowing with Asda’s best steak (robbed). A real eye opener.

So, back to tonights run, we hadn’t even made it to the end of the carpark before a missile came hurtling towards us, I saw it out of the corner of my eye and thankfully it just missed. So where did it come from. Just some scratter stood on his doorstep chucking his can away. ‘Sorry, I didn’t expect anyone to be running past’  he grunted. Oh well thats alright then………. Crash helmets next week.Still another great run, some great chat- huge bingo wings and massive calves tonights favourite topic!!! One day we’ll be happy with our finely toned (sort of)  figures. Tired legs for the last couple of miles though, think Janathon is starting to catch up. Still another six mile in the bag and a weekend off to look forward to. 

Super League starts tomorrow
