School Sports Day

Another valuable lesson learned today:

If you have spent 3 or 4 months doing long slow runs in preparation for a marathon, don’t run in the dad’s race at the school sports.

And if you do, don’t try and sprint it in jeans and a tee shirt.

And if you do, don’t complain that your hamstring is very sore afterwards.

Your wife will think your an idiot and your kids will ask you why, after all the running you do, you didn’t win.

Or come second,

or third.

I think I was fourth.

  1. Yes, another very good excuse to run slow, I like your style.

    • Rick, your perception skills are top class. I. Realise that I used to do the same in school. That said, my right hip flexor is as tight as a gnat’s chuff this morning.
