A bakers dozen plus a bit

The Hague Half Marathon is only 8 days away. This time next week, I'll be trying to remember that I should be driving on the wrong side as myself, Mrs HMC and eatingtrees hit the road.

I didn't get out last weekend as I was, along with the rest of the household, fighting a cold so it was an absolute must this weekend. With an audiobook in my ears I headed out on the normal route knowing that I would need to stop slightly short this weekend. Due to tiredness? aches? time taken? Nope. I needed to stop at the bakers to get an unbelievably good farmhouse loaf. It is bliss.

Cut it thick, add some bacon, spread and ketchup and a big mug of black coffee and you have the breakfast of kings! I was going to take a picture of the monster sandwich but I thought it would be a little cruel to all the people eating cereal this morning. However, exactly what I deserved after 13.96km in 1:13:25.

Right, I'm off to do some more planning for the trip. Have a good weekend all.


  1. Jaysus, I'm reading your post late at night, after coming in from a long day's work and a bit of a social excursion, and now my mouth is watering for some loaf, bacon and ketchup...but there's not a sausage or rasher in sight!

  2. Drooooool. Looking forward to reading about your mega weekend and half-marathon.
