I’m not running a bloody marathon.

Nothing to say on my own behalf this week, this is much more amusing and what I would have said if I was witty😆😆


It’s over two years since I last wrote this blog. Let me explain.

I got cold feet. Not literally. (Although my circulation’s not what it used to be.) I was in love. Deeply in love. And then that love died as quickly as it had started.

I had fallen head over heels in love with running. Once I’d got my first sniff of SiS gel, I collapsed blissfully into the arms of a relationship that I never thought I’d be worthy of.

About mawil1

I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme.

    Damn that Catford Gyratory! Great post though, made me laugh. Runing is just running …. lets not take it too seriously and enjoy (except for the bits that hurt (and secretly we enjoy those too))
