from the start . .
Rima set off a little later than planned, she still took a moment to
Hug the Photographer for good luck (you should try it some time!!)
before heading off, tugging her tyre (specially decorated for
Mothering Sunday) behind her . .
gradually, once they were good and ready, everyone got under way . .
seems to think that poking her tongue at cameras brings luck but I
prefer the good old-fashioned hug!
I'd be smiling at the start of 27 miles around anywhere, although I
guess there's more chance of a smile at the start than at the end!!
preferred to stand still and pose . .
runner started off as she meant to carry on and followed the
shortest line from the very start . .
invisible Nordic poles!!
