A rainy run for Paula

Like many people, I spent last Monday staring at the rolling news coverage of the rioting last week. On Tuesday, I was dazed to read an email from Adele sharing the sad news that one of our committed Athoners, Paula Butler, had died suddenly while out running. It seems so very wrong.

Old Bag Running, abradypus, Fortnight Flo, Cake of Good Hope, Insert Clever Running Pun Here and Shazruns have already taken up Adele’s suggestion that we each dedicate a run to Paula, so here is mine.

Tonight was three miles down the canal, in the rain, with the excellent company of my very good mate. The run itself was nothing spectacular, but one of the best.
