Are we doing something special on the occasion of becoming an "old age" pensioner? :) deep can this be?
 Nope, the same old, same old...just wading a little "deeper" into life.

Pretty deep!
On the rare :) November day that it does rain in Scotland, the internal "sunshine" always appears...during the the early morning run.

It's a gift we've given to one another, almost every day, for a very long time.

On this day: 11.31 km and 15,109 steps of pure, albeit wet, joy.

And it makes turning 65, and becoming a certified OAP rather fun - and then, of course, there are all the discounts for we "older" folks!

I love what writer and runner Ben Cheever says...

"Running is my anchor. 
It's not what I do, 
but it's what makes everything else I do okay."

And now...a celebratory bowl of soup at TISO in Perth. :)


  1. Happy Birthday Duncan, wishing you many more to come! :o)

    Best wishes

    1. Many thanks for your good wishes, Ian. With all the places to paddle, I'm clearly going to need quite a few more years. :) Warm wishes, Duncan.

  2. Happy B day D, Glad you braved the outdoors and even got your feet wet...I know how you love to play in the water...and well maybe even the mud!

    1. Thank you for that, L. You know how much I love to play in the water. Haha! Just be thankful you weren't there...someone else would have gotten very wet - and muddy! ;) Warm wishes, D.

  3. Good to see you are still "young at heart", running through the puddle. Most pensioners would have taken the drier side, but where is the fun in doing that.
    Hope you had a good Birthday.

    1. Haha! Thanks cousin. I must admit, choosing the "lesser" travelled path gets me into deep water now and again, but I figure life's supposed to be an adventure. I usually get back to shore. :) Warm wishes, see you soon. Duncan.
