Hi Folks,

With the global news dominated by deeply troubling stories, this seems like a good time to work hard at seeing the lighter side of things. We hope that you’re getting some solace in the ongoing Commonwealth Games. It’s great to see England top of the medal table– not a common sight, but certainly a welcome one!

Her Majesty the Queen also provided a moment of levity when she got in the frame (accidentally or otherwise, you decide…) for a “selfie” during the opening of the event. In all seriousness, though, it’s wonderful to see these athletes coming together for such a major event on home soil, and truly heart-warming to see the appreciation of locals and visitors for the support of our armed forces. It’s a great reason to be upbeat just now

More record-smashing news from Team Doyle!

After a gruelling run and walk he beat the Guinness World Record for a half-marathon with a 20lb backpack by 37 minutes finishing in a time of 2 hrs: 23 mins: 35 secs. After a short break the former boxer and Paratrooper then decided to attempt the cross country marathon carrying the same weight finishing in a time of 4 hrs: 09 mins: 57 secs.

Doyle said “I have to admit the heat got to me from the early stages and the ground was hard under foot. The hilly inclines and the heat from the sun made me feel sick and dizzy during both events. It was my experience and the support of my team who got me to the finish line. As a genuine endurance athlete you have to adapt and block out all the pain. I am looking forward to my next Guinness World Record cross country marathon where I’ll be carrying a 40 lb back pack!”

In the last seven months Doyle has achieved 31 fitness endurance records, achieved a career 342 records and currently holds 210 strength speed stamina feats.

Joke: The Pirate

A pirate walked into a bar and the bartender said, ‘Hey, I haven’t seen you in a while. What happened? You look terrible.’

‘What do you mean?’ said the pirate, ‘I feel fine.’

Bartender, ‘What about the wooden leg? You didn’t have that before.’

Pirate, ‘Well, we were in a battle and I got hit with a cannon ball, but I’m fine now.’

Bartender, ‘Well, OK, but what about that hook? What happened to your hand?’

Pirate, ‘We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight. My hand was cut off. I got fitted with a hook. I’m fine, really.’

Bartender ‘What about that eye patch?’

Pirate, ‘Oh, one day we were at sea and a flock of sea-gulls flew over. I looked up, and one of them pooed in my eye.’

‘You’re kidding,’ said the bartender, ‘you lost an eye just from bird poo?’

Pirate, ‘It was my first day with the hook.’
