  1. Lunch time run

    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. ...

Anyway, to cut a long story short we had too many on our side so I agreed to referee (see picture below).

    So, I need to get this off my chest and I'm not sure how erudite I can make it. The most over-rated bag of colossal tripe I've had the misfortune to have to read.
