Race For The Prize *

For some strange reason, I entered a seven-mile race, which took place in Leicestershire yesterday. My aim was to finish. My second aim was to finish in under an hour. I did both - 59 mins, 55 secs. I was well chuffed. That I came in 266th place wasn't a problem as there were around 420 in the race. I have never done any running other than the odd workout on a treadmill before.

That is to say I'm very impressed.I can't run 3 miles without breaking into a can of lager.

Sheesh, it shames me how short the distance is I can run - it's about as far as from a theatre seat to a stage door... ;)

JJ - well, not much. And thanks.

Martin - so I wouldn't catch you running 7 miles. What, you quicker than me?

Martin - oh, I see what you mean!

lisa - but what if the theatre seat was in Glasgow and the stage door was in Covent Garden? Now, that would be impressive!!
