Many have said this is the coldest winter they can remember, and certainly the Northerly winds have encouraged use of the electric blanket. What a good investment that proved to be! The weather certainly brought out extra aches in my (recovering) ankle injury, but a session of Traction with my Sports Therapist at last allowed me to walk with bearable pain, so from February 21st I have managed at least an hour a day, with the bonus of a 5.5 mile walk with our regular Saturday group on 25th.That alk was followed by an excellent Thai Green Curry at Cosmos Lodge near Monagrouli, on the old Nicosia Road. Highly recommended.
On 24th February Episkopi Hash celebrated their 2500 run in Cyprus, and 60 members and partners enjoyed a function at the Atlantica Bay. A 12 hour day for me, but ankle held up very well.
March sees me hosting runners at Oasis for Paphos Marathon on 11th and Limassol Marathon on 18th, so hope to see some of you there as spectators if not competetors.
