Like an old slipper

John Duff has returned! He appeared at my car window in the Rothbury car park last night, all ready to run then took some pictures of us on the way round!

Pulling a face!

He’s had an amazing time in Australia and New Zealand having been to all sorts of places we went in 1996 twas an evening of nostalgia as well as the usual gasping.

He’s not like an old slipper – that’s the hop and skip down from the summit cairn of Simonside. Love it – feel like every footstep is familiar. We could have gone further but ran out of daylight or rather ran into darkness. Memory map says about 13 miles, disappointingly but we’ll see what Nick’s widget says. Still about 2500ft though.

Edit: The widget said 14.11 miles. Better.
