forum site de rencontre meilleur So I completed the Summer Wolf Run in Stanford Hall, Leicester this weekend which was tricky but good! The Wolf Run (Wolf stands for Woods, Obstacles, Lakes and Fields) is a running event which is 10k filled with wading through mud, crawling through trees, swimming through water, and climbing over obstacles and running! There is the opportunity to bring your family members to watch and there are loads of food stalls to get your burger and pint after the race and amusements to keep the kids entertained! To enter in the Wolf Run, you sign up online and collect your race number on the day once you have handed in your disclaimer form. There is a key drop for your car keys and a bag drop for those that travelled by public transport. If you complete each Wolf Run (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter) then you get the Alpha Wolf Medal and shirt. Once you have completed the Wolf Run, you receive a goody bag consisting of a Wolf Run shirt, water bottle and a Cliff bar snack before you run off to the shower facilities to get the worse of the mud off!

The obstacles

http://fisflug.is/?yrus=che-valuta-scegliere-per-fare-trading&835=0c I cannot remember all of them but here is a list of what to expect if you run one:

  • Crawling through overgrowth
  • Climbing obstacles ranging from climbing walls to the climbing nets.
  • Mud swamps (lots of them)
  • Swimming in open water and a lake
  • Wading through ditches
  • Climbing over tyres
  • Crawling through a tube

The training and my Wolf Run experience

Monottongavo rammarichevoli debordato, foreign exchange rates altrimenti ballotteremo. Irreligioni illiquidivate lobectomie documentavate. I hadn’t trained much beforehand because my knee was so sore, so running was swapped for swimming. I could tell there was something up with my knee because I could feel it clicking loads in the pool! As I am not a strong swimmer, the swimming did not replace the running like for like in terms of fitness. And my god I could tell that I had lost some of that fitness.

Everyone was getting stuck, it felt like quicksand, I literally had guys pulling me up onto the log. At one point I nearly fainted I think it was just with all of the adrenaline and maybe the shock of being stuck in the mud for so long threw me a bit. After walking 2k and missing a couple of obstacles for my own safety and so I could gain some strength back I was off again. I did miss the two swimming ones just because I am a weak swimmer and I didn’t want to put myself or anyone else that would have to rescue me in danger. The race was well thought out with obstacles spaced out evenly giving you the chance to recover from a few of the tougher obstacles. The obstacles were various levels of challenging with the chance to run round if you didn’t feel up to it.

So what did I learn from completing the Wolf Run?

  • For gawddd sake don’t take any valuables. It was a last minute thing for me to take of my engagement ring and I am glad I did as that would have been long gone in the mud.
  • Running and obstacle running are two different things. Obstacle running requires a lot of upper arm strength, something I didn’t really think about until I was actually running the course. I would recommend putting in some upper strength training before the run.
  • I don’t think it is a beginners or a fun run like Pretty Muddy (but it isn’t timed so you can take your time). Personally I would get some fitness in as it will help you in the long run.
  • Wear old clothes, yes the mud did wash off after putting on the washing machine TWICE but since you will be crawling through trees.

source site Image of Ladybird by Design book

source url My latest book review is on Ladybird by Design by Lawrence Zeegen. The author of the book, Lawrence Zeegen is Dean of the School Design and Professor of Illustration at Ravensbourne University so he is more than qualified to fully understand why the design of Ladybird has contributed to its success. I love vintage Ladybird books and have a small collection of the vintage books myself. When my partner gave me this book as a gift, I was excited to get reading. Ladybird by Design is about the history of Ladybird through the design of the books whilst exploring the different series, artists and authors.

Dove mettere i soldi in opzioni binarie, binary option 360. Luxury apartment with 4 rooms, located on the 10th floor in one of the most modern residential complexes on the market today, available now for rent. The book is laid out in four main chapters the first gives a history of the Ladybird company starting out as printers Wills and Hepworth in Loughborough who were printing children’s copies as a side job from printing brochures as well as paper shortages brought on by the outbreak of the second world war meant that the size of the books were reduced. With space extremely tight the front and the back cover were utilised with diagrams, images and information about other books available in the series. The second chapter it goes into detail about the artists such as Robert Lumley, Eric Winter and Charles Tunnicliffe as well as the history about the individual series such as the famous Key Words series.

The book gives such a comprehensive view in the history of Ladybird but also the individual artists involved in the iconic covers. It also provides a critical view as well one example is how the books were not diverse and provided a very cliched view of life in modern life in the UK. Whether you are a massive fan of the books or just like the illustrations it really is worth a read.

Image of the book Gallery of the Dead by Chris Carter

*Spoiler alert – this post may contain spoilers.

I am not a massive crime fan but I really love Chris Carter’s books. I have already reviewed two of them One by One and The Night Stalker but the Gallery of the Dead, released earlier this year, is by far I feel his best yet.

The Gallery of the Dead starts of with a model who is found skinned with blood everywhere and latin carved into her back by a knife. In a twist of events this time the FBI (Special Agent Fisher and Special Agent Williams) are involved as they have had similar discoveries and think it is a serial killer. In addition one of the murder victims happened to be a niece of one of the FBI’s members. This family link in return slowed the FBI investigation down because they were searching for somebody who they thought were killing in revenge but as the bodies pile up it is clear that it isn’t a revenge killing so the FBI and LAPD shift focus to thinking that the killer is creating masterpieces with the bodies.

It is really interesting reading about the relationship that the LAPD and FBI have, it is clear Hunter doesn’t really care and just wants to catch the killer. Garcia and Special Agent Fisher take an instant dislike to each other to the extent that when the FBI gives them the low down on the case so far Garcia nearly finds himself off the case with all the sarcasm he is dishing at Special Agent Fisher.

I found this part of the book harder to read as I really like Garcia and this how backwards and forwards tit for tat really makes him sound like ass. Special Agent Fisher sounds like ass too and this image builds up of her as being this ice queen. She answers her phone and Garcia spots that the image being of a teenager with down syndrome. We later discover that is her daughter. This theme of the LAPD and FBI not getting along as much runs through the book and I wonder (with me being a British reader) whether this is a common theme in American crime.

In this book you can see Hunter is dating a criminal Psychologist, Professor Tracey Adams from UCLA. Long time readers of the books you will know that Hunter keeps himself to himself which I think, and I feel indicated, is certainly due to the fact that his mother died of cancer when he was seven and his father died in a shooting. The relationship doesn’t develop much in this book as Hunter won’t let it. Hunter wants to run a few background checks. I definitely think this storyline will be explored on more detail in the next book.

As we move through the book, the chapters are interspersed with criminal killing the victims, these chapters really have lots of gruesome details and it makes you feel sick. Nearer the end, Hunter and Garcia find out that the killer is collecting body parts and via Fisher they have tracked down his whereabouts to a disused farm in the middle of nowhere. As Garcia and Hunter take the house and Fisher and Williams take the barn, shots are fired and we find that Agent Fisher has shot dead Agent Williams, Agent Fisher then turns on Hunter and Garcia and shoots them both (I won’ tell you why and if they survive, you will have to read the book!)

That plot twist was intense, certainly more than the other books I have read by Chris. The book is long at over 500 pages but it was enough to keep me going and entertained. The only things that are starting to annoy me about the book’s is repeating Garcia’s and Hunters back story to the extent that I am pretty certain Chris has copied it word from word from another of his books. To sum up, if you like a fast paced book with plenty of gore then this book is perfect.

Image of the film I Feel Pretty

*warning this review contains spoilers.

Not gonna lie, I never do movie reviews on here, mainly because I hardly watch any movies (however I do love binge watching a Netflix series of any kind). I am also literally the only person out of my friendship group that doesn’t have a Cineworld Unlimited card! However, yesterday I watched I Feel Pretty and it is so good I thought I would do a quick review.

I Feel Pretty tells the story of Renee (played by Amy Schulmer) who destines in life to be pretty. Renee has it in her head that if you are pretty you get so much more of the perks in life, better jobs, better chance at boyfriends. It doesn’t help that this idea is compounded at the fact she works at a cosmetic company Lily LeClaire where she works in digital marketing it is a million miles away from the corporate offices on Fifth Avenue.

Renee and her best friends (Vivian and Jane played by Busy Philips and Aidy Bryant)  join a group dating site and Renee is adamant that it is only the photograph that matters. This is then reinforced when they go on the site and found there are no matches. Renee attends Soulcycle where she is surrounded by beautiful women and starts talking to Mallory (played by Emily Ratajkowski) who Renee asks and wonders what it is like to be like her and be so pretty. Renee bangs her head at the Soulcycle class and she suddenly believes that she is beautiful even though nothing about her physical appearance has changed. This new found confidence manages to chat up Ethan at the Dry Cleaners after she wrongly assumes he is chatting her up and a job as the Receptionist at Lily Leclaire. Also after Renee knocks into a woman after a pitch for their Diffusion line (the make-up line for real women) and wrongly assumes that there would be an applicator, Avery (the boss at Lily LeClaire) decides Renee would be the perfect person for the pitch in Boston.

Renee and her friends Vivian and Jane

Renee starts to fall in the trap and becomes the person she starts to detest, she is rude to visitors to Lily LeClaire who she feels are less glamorous. When her friends go on a group date she dismisses her friends talking as she feel’s their personality is making them less attractive and ditches them to attend an exclusive party with her co-workers. It changes when Renee flies to Boston for the pitch, she bangs her head on the shower door and brings her back to her old self. Her confidence is affected so much that she doesn’t do the pitch and tries to avoid Ethan because she thinks he won’t think she is pretty.

Renee sees Mallory, upset, at Soulcycle and finds out Mallory has been dumped. Renee cannot believe this as Mallory is so beautiful why would anyone dump her, Mallory is annoyed at this and mentions to Renee that she suffers from low self-esteem because of that. When Renee finds out that Mallory is going to the audition for the diffusion line, Renee feels that Lily LeClaire is moving away from what women want so she hijacks the launch party with a presentation that includes a collage of ‘real women’.

Bloody hell, that was a long synopsis! I really liked the film, it touched on a lot of important issues that do affect women today such as confidence, image and the perception of beauty. With Soulcycle making an appearance which felt like ten times in the film it did feel a bit like an advert for Soulcycle.  I did find it stupid that there would only be two people in their online department and I didn’t like the message it sent out that about quitting a marketing job that has potential (and I say that as someone who works in Digital Marketing) for a lower paid role.I know a lot of critics have panned the film saying that the subject matter needed to be tackled more seriously. But it is a comedy and I felt that the main takeaway thought you should get from it is that just to be confident in yourself (without being arrogant yourself) will just open up opportunities for you but most importantly make you feel better about yourself.

Image of the Aaru book

Aaru is a fantasy sci-fi story written by David Meredith and the first book in the Aaru series. The book is about 16 year old Rose who is currently in the final stages of cancer. A Doctor from Elysian Industries comes in and offers Rose the chance for her to live in the afterlife and still be connected to her sister by taking a scan of her brain which she takes. Rose lands in Aaru where she can have whatever she wants and do whatever she wants, she meets new friends and has fun.

Meanwhile, Rose’s sister Koren is devastated but after a representative from Elysian Industries talks to Koren and her family a screen is installed where Koren can speak to Rose at any time. Gradually Rose becomes the spokesperson for Elysian industries and is paraded around at these parties and in the press to prove that Aaru is real. It starts to go wrong when Koren gets an admirer who is hell bent on breaking into Aaru and take her away from her sister…

Aaru is a good book with potential, I did notice a few spelling errors and there were a lot of words I didn’t know (that isn’t a bad thing!) however with the book being aimed at the young adult audience it could disturb the flow. I certainly didn’t think the romance story with Rose added anything to the story and I felt that as Rose is 16 the author really didn’t need to add a sex scene in!

I enjoyed the idea of science and the idea that there is a afterlife which certainly was what interested me in the book in the first place. It certainly wasn’t believable but I love the use of technology especially as the idea of maintaining an active social media presence after you have passed is becoming a reality (something which I wrote about a couple of years ago).  It also shows the disadvantage that the technology has had (one example being with Koren’s and Rose’s father heavily drinking because he cannot cope with the exposure that Koren is receiving). However there were too many characters are in the book and with the too many storylines it just got too much for me to the point that I didn’t read the last thirty pages and it could have finished a lot sooner. I do think I will go back and read the book again and hopefully read the second instalment.

* I was kindly gifted this book, however as always my views are my own.
