On Saturday one of Mr Uphilldowndale’s running buddies (I’ll not publish his name, I’ll just call him ‘G’) was seriously injured when he was in a road traffic collision whilst out on his bike. We’re all sending our thought’s, love, good wishes, prayers or what ever we have to give, to G, his family and those who care for him. Worrying times and we feel impotent, we wish we could do more.
I came across G a while back here.
We were both on our way to work, he had stopped to admire the view, whilst I more likely, had stopped to catch my breath. We chatted, he was in reflective mood. I told how him how Mr Uhdd was frustrated at not being race fit and was niggled by minor injuries. G offered this advice. ‘Tell him to eat more pies, he thinks he need to keep his weight down but he doesn’t, he need to eat more pies; I know I’ve done it myself.’
So I’m sending pies, or at least the metaphorical health giving properties of pies, its all I can do.
