Kitted and packed up

As is the norm in the Smallwood household we are totally disorganised when it comes to holidays or outings this year being no different. Having only booked an annual holiday 10 days ago there was frantic action in the house as we dragged luggage from the attic, the washing machine and iron were on over drive.

The delightful Mrs S scowled as I ducked out for a last minute 11 mile run with Duncan returning muddy and wet after a brilliant run in which our feet made the decisions as to where to go which ended up never being more than 3 miles from our homes.

On my return I found that everyone had a pile of clothes ready for packing except me who seemed to have nothing but my running kit comprising:
  • 2 x running tops
  • 2 x shorts
  • 1 x shoes
  • 1 x Buff
  • 1 x race vest
  • 1 x Garmin 305 GPS
The exasperated Mrs S was not pleased so frantic activity resumed as I found clothes and shoes. 

Time to rest, eat and drink but also to get in some much needed runs along Spanish beaches and hills I can't wait.


  1. Lol, I bet Mrs. S cant help but look exsasapatted some times :-)

  2. My same behavior: last minute workout and always the last to pack.
    Enjoy your vacation.

  3. hope the holidays are a relaxing one for the family
