A Run With A Man And A Van

I’m really making an effort to get out and run after work more. Because of work if I were to run before, I’d have to get up at 4.30am and to be honest, I’m just not that committed! I’d rather have the extra hour in bed.

So the other night, despite it being dark and windy and wet I still went out for a run. As if by magic though the rain did stop which I was pleased about. I’d decided to try and stay away from the sea front as the wind on the front is always a lot worse. As I was running I didn’t think the wind felt too bad. I was beginning to get really hot so I thought I’d pop through to the sea front to let the breeze cool me a little.

I ended up regretting it. There is parking all on the sea front and I ran past a man having a wee up the side of his van! It was pretty grim but he must have been desperate as it was actually making a bit of a gushing noise! Sorry if that’s too much information haha.

My luck took a real down turn when the weather decided to hail too. It was like lots of tiny pins stabbing me in the face! Luckily I was already on the return leg of my run but I really could have done without it!

I got back and I’d clocked up a 5K. A quick selfie, because if you don’t take a selfie, did you even go for a run? Then I had a hot bath to try and warm up after peeling off my wet clothes. I have to admit, I’m so ready for Spring. I’m tired of running in the dark, wind and rain!

  1. Well done for getting out there. I totally agree I am very ready for spring now- lighter evenings especially.
    How gross! I hate seeing men weeing by the side of roads or at races- just wait until you are close to a toilet! Once I saw a person doing a poo in a field – they were very close to the road (and pavement) that I was on, and it was just the weirdest thing, especially as there was a petrol station up the road which probably had a toilet.
