    Beautiful Day, Beautiful Person, Beautiful Game

    Beautiful Day, Beautiful Person, Beautiful Game

    A very gentle run / walk round and round Clissold Park this week, due to Paul being a little up against it physically and emotionally. Featuring what it’s like to lose someone you love, what happens when the football people fight the power, pirates at play, Rob’s heavy training-and-gaming schedule, and the grubby underbelly of the Vaporfly generation.


    In memory of Kathleen Berry.

Great Listen

Love listening to the banter between these two. Particularly the descriptions of the areas they are running around in London.
