    The Beatles

    Saw some vintage cars and a film crew outside Croxteth Hall on my run the other day. Turns out they were filming for a new movie called The Midas Man, about the life of Brian Epstein.

    Gigs I have been to recently thread

    Great show, Afterglow and Duchess were the highlights for me. Nic Collins was excellent. Watching clips on YouTube again now. Always like that getting out from the floor seats, even though they have side exits they send everyone down that back exit.

    Haha, I wouldn't say amazing but it is giving me motivation (I even took my running gear to Lanzarote the other week and managed to get out every morning of our holiday - would never have dreamt of doing that in the past). I only started really getting into running at the start of lockdown - I had done a little bit of running in 2019 and I had done a couple of parkruns at that stage. I have been working from home right through so it was a reason to get out of the house each day and "away from the desk" and have Croxteth Park literally on my doorstep. Its now just become routine and a change of lifestyle (especially as I turned 50 last year) - I lost 2.5 stone from March to July last year and have managed to keep the weight off. Had a few leg issues this week with two runs finishing with pins and needles so I thought the streak would be over but today was day 257 and in the back of my mind now I am aiming for 365 days. Finished 52nd in parkrun the other week out of just on 400 people and brought my PB down to 22:35. Running my first official half marathon later this month - looking forward to that!

    Pretty chuffed to have reached this land mark today - 250 consecutive days of running at least 5km a day. Tempted to try and push for 365 now…..

    Can't wait for the 3rd October! The reviews and social media comments all seem very positive.

    Crappiest place you've been to in the UK

    No, Lloyds. Our IT centre is near the civic centre

    Crappiest place you've been to in the UK

    Had the “pleasure” of working there for the last 20 years. I’m that fed up of working from home, I’m actually looking forward to going back there!!!

    Digital tickets 21/22 season

    My son been using my season ticket last few seasons. He’s away so thought I’d take a game in. Downloaded the season ticket to my phone on Thursday night, no problem. Goes for a drink with a mate and as I walked up to the turnstiles went into my Apple wallet and no ticket there! Logged into website and I couldn’t download ticket as it was detected on another phone. Had to go to ticket office where queues were ridiculous. While waiting my son somehow sent ticket my email and I was able to add to wallet again but then had to rejoin queue at turnstiles. Just about got in for kick off but there was still massive crowds outside the Kop

    Nike deal

    Fit me ok! TBH, they're not as skin tight as the photos look. As I said, only bought them for running in colder weather - cheaper than going out and buying from elsewhere!

    Nike deal

    I just ordered a tracksuit from there the other week. Tracking showed it leaving China on Monday 9th. Got a text and email from Royal Mail on Friday afternoon (20th) that it had cleared customs and it was delivered Saturday morning. Excellent quality for £20 - will do me for running in the winter.

    I know - we saw the funny side, eventually!
