I don't usually do this ... but it's been quite a week, so here's a quick pictorial record ;-)
I blogged about this on the evening of 25th - you can see the post here ...
... I'm still somewhat over-the-moon at having completed 26.2miles, in 4hrs.49mins., in my 50th-year!
Life in the old-dog yet :-)
MONDAY 26th MAY
Again, I couldn't resist blogging this picture on Monday night ...
... the pint-and-a-fiver that I'd waited 30-years for - and had to run a Marathon to receive!
Best pint ever :-))
TUESDAY 27th MAY
Full Council week, this week - as mentioned in an earlier post - and that always means a Group Meeting on the Tuesday evening.
Just couldn't stop myself from taking my Marathon medal, and Garmin watch, into work so that I could show a few colleagues!
WEDNESDAY 28th MAY
What can I say - glad this didn't happen last Wednesday before I had to run that Edinburgh Marathon ...
... but cycling home this evening - in the pouring rain - had a bit of a nasty tumble, with the road-surface coming off better than my nose :-(
Here's the gory-outcome, prior to the application of copious make-up :-((
THURSDAY 29th MAY
Full Council today - not a day I can relax; with lots of interest in the Leader's Report as usual ... with plenty of questions from all sides of the Chamber.
Face still pretty sore from yesterday :-(
FRIDAY 30th MAY
Even with the sore face, it's Friday now and I just had to smile ;-)
Significant day for Edinburgh - after years of disruption, and acknowledged hardship for many - the Edinburgh Tram was given a soft Press-launch ...
... this is my first ever selfie (honest!) on my inaugural tram trip - just passing St. John's Church at the West End of Princes Street.
SATURDAY 31st MAY
First fare-paying passengers on the tram - from 5am this morning ...
... I didn't attempt that, but here I am at the Saughton Halt, on my way home from a friend's 50th Birthday celebration ;-)
Platinum ticket in-hand!
SUNDAY 1st JUNE
It's Sunday - so it must be the annual "Kirking of the City of Edinburgh Council" ...
... as friends and colleagues know, I'm not that religious - but do try and attend this Service, and the Remembrance Sunday Service, each year!
What a week.
