Hail the Electric Energy and Physical Force of the Commonwealth Games!

We caught our plane out of Scotland very early yesterday morning after 3 mini-hours of sleep.  I send big compliments to my son, Joe Welstead, finalist in a thrilling 50m Breaststroke race swum between the Commonwealth’s greatest :  World Record Holders, Commonwealth Games Record Holders, Olympic Medalists, World Class Athletes… you guys had us mortals at the poolside roaring with respect.  Thanks.

 Peace and Love from this happy, delighted mama who was so happy to be there watching you!  Couldn’t have grinned wider or shouted louder.

Mama runs, Joe swims

OMG morning run through vines and fertile fields with the Apennines ahead.  Uphill return with heart pounding hard and happy, warm as the sun.  My waggy tailed dogs good company.  Following Joe in the British Championship 50m breaststroke final tonight.  YeeeeHa!
