That Was Great

The Olympics have just finished and there are a lot of glum people at work. I’m looking forward to the Paralympics now which is just a week and a bit away. It was great to see so many people out running over the period. I’m usually quite cynical when we get the New Year runners and don’t see them in February but this was different. I saw parents out running with their kids and it was obvious it was a new thing. Great stuff.

I haven’t posted in ages but i have been out running around. I have no plans at the moment but i am seriously looking at doing a triathlon sometime next year. Time to dust down the speedos and get the bike out.

The people who do these things sent me a lovely pair of Polaroid sunglasses. I don’t usually wear glasses when i’m out running but these were of a different quality. Slightly heavier (in a good way) than others i have tried and when i put them on i did let out a surprised “oh!” because these sat very nicely on my big nose. There was a good gap for ventilation something i suffer from horrendously because of the amount of sweat i generate. It was so nice running without squinting and i thought they looked ok. I was going to say cool but a bloke in his late 30’s saying that is not cool. Now a part of my running kit and good for everyday stuff.
