Sponsored by the letters P, R and S

Today's run was sponsored by the letters P, R and S, namely Puddles, Rain and Sleep or lack of sleep in my case. Why a lack of sleep well my  6 year old decided that 3.30am was a good time to wake up and decide to watch some Alvin and the Chipmunks. This decision was shortly by me saying that now wasn't an appropriate time and sleep was a much better option. Cue 30 minutes of crying followed by 20 minutes of saying she had a nightmare, probably about Chipmunks. That led to a very hesitant "leap" out of bed this morning.

Once I was outside things didn't get much better as it was absolutely heaving it down. To the extent I had to don waterproofs :-( and had to splash through many puddles, whilst avoiding all the lucky people in their cars!

*This really is slow for me, but I blame the weather, the lack of sleep, the darkness, a pain which I hope isn't my hamstring and anything else apart from my running ability or lack of!
