    50-minutes-5-miles-and-a-lifetime-of-night-terrors

    The lunch time run. Preserve of the athlete, the chiseled definition of dedication and commitment. Turns out it’s the preserve of the unfit and the less than alluring masses determined to fight age off with a particularly fragile stick.

    A quick 5k I told myself. I had an hour and thought I’d plod around, maximizing my time in a slow, endurance building jog. I hit the Bracknell suburbs and the first thing I noticed was the stairs. ...
