The day after the day before. Tired. Mixed feelings. Another Oxfam medal but it doesn’t seem so special when we didn’t finish as a full team. On the other hand I am proud that the three of us picked ourselves up and managed to get in under last year’s time after we lost Jo at 65km.

Perfect weather for a long walk but this afternoon just a stroll along the beach to get some fresh air. I even had a swim in the sea – surprised how warm it still is. Hopefully get a chance to have another dip before the end of the weekend.  One more sleep.

Last weekend there was a street art festival in Hamilton. Walls were identified around Hamilton East and in the town centre that were ripe for artwork. We saw this space on Grey Street being painted on Friday night. Today I sought it out to see the result. Stunning! I love that these artworks are tucked away…little treasures and splashes of creativity in the drabness of the city.
