Next Race: Sidcup 10, can’t believe my good fortune

Sidcup10‘There’s a race on Sunday isn’t there in Sidcup’ said my other half through a weary haze of cold and flu like symptoms. ‘Yes’ I replied, I think there is, ‘but I’m not doing it, too soon after the last ultra’. Strangely she seemed annoyed and so I probed further, ‘why?’

‘Oh, well Sue and Kirstie were hoping to catch up, you could run the race while we walk the dogs’

Well blow me down, you could have knocked me over with naught but a feather. No sooner had she she finished the word race than I had my debit card in hand and was at the computer signing up for a 10 mile road race in sunny or probably quite watery Sidcup. I’m now blogging about it because I fancied making some pre-race visuals (hence the graphic above) and also I can’t believe my luck. Mindue I think I’d have preferred a 10km as the chest infection is still bugging me and I haven’t run much this week but you never can look a gift race in the mouth… can you?

Happy running chaps.

    That is some luck. I need a few of those gift horses. Good luck.
