Half Year Update

The end of June seems to have come around with shocking speed!
So sitting here tonight at the end of a long day with a school occupying the Centre (will post separately on this) it seems like a good time to have a quick look back over the year to date.

Its a bit of a cliche but Centre life has been both rewarding & challenging. The Centre is doing well but we haven't been immune from recession and it seems we have had to work much harder to keep things moving along. Still the schools, youth & church ministry is alive, well & growing.

Kay is doing very well the treatment is working but has its consequences for her. Overall she has had a very good 6 months for which we are massively grateful especially considering where things were at last Christmas.

I am delighted to have completed everything I had planned to do this year opposite NGB awards, completing Mountain Leader (summer) - see previous post & adding Level 2 (vertical) mine exploration routes to my "list" The extra time spent in the fells, which are effectively our back garden, has been a real highlight of the year to date.

Progress on the running front has been slow, mileages are well down on what I'd hoped for. This is partially due to injury (just coming to the end of an eight week lay off) but the time working on the above NGB's has also been a factor - there is only so much time available!. Anyway I'm planning to run again later this week, which could be decisive & am still desperately keen to take part in the OMM this October..............................................................................................
