Slippery Nipples and Slobbery Dogs

Posted on: 14 May 2021

G’day Runsters,

My Sunday started with me applying Vaseline to my body, some of it in unspeakable areas. This means two things, a) my London Marathon training distances are increasing and b) I’m too curvy to run those distances without chub rub.

Thanks to this slippery assistance I was able to go the distance and hit my target of 7 miles.....slowly of course, stopping briefly to speak to friends and to pet the pictured Basset Hound. I ALWAYS stop for Bassets. It’s the law!

Sunday’s musical highlight keeping me rolling along was slightly different but very welcome. My favourite radio show team (Radcliffe & Maconie) were interviewing Tim Booth who just happens to be the lead singer of ‘James’, my favourite band. I think all of these elements (along with perfect running weather) played no small part in getting me to my goal.

Keep on running!
