Thanks James Mills 

I got a random standing ovation on my run yesterday. Going down a trail I saw a group of 8 walkers coming towards me and instead of just moving to the side they created a tunnel and cheered me through. Very random but made me smile for the rest of the run.

And for making us laugh...Treadmill fails from Daz Reevel
