"Mamma, -du er som ei ku!"

"Mamma- du er som ei Ku!" -sa dattera mi til meg, da vi vandret rundt med klirrende medaljer hengende rundt halsen, etter Oslo Maraton, -forrige helg. For selv om jeg ikke greide målet mitt om å løpe alle distanser, fikk jeg likevel samlet en hel haug med lekre medaljer etter først å ha løpt 3 for alle fredag kveld, Oslo Maraton og 10 for Grete, lørdag den 16.september. Å gjennomføre hele Oslotrippelen har nemlig vært noe jeg har hatt lyst til helt siden første gang den ble arrangert for få år siden. ... read more »

A Marathon Run and Done.

Regular visitors will be aware I’ve been engaged in a final edit of the last two books of the fantasy trilogy, A Seared Sky, following publication of book 1, Joinings, by Fantastic Books Publishing at the end of March this year.
