Aliveandrunning June 7 2014 Juneathon Day 7




These landmine looking doughnuts were actually on sale at my local Tesco. I wouldn’t be surprised if people were actually buying them (using their hard earned money obtained by actually working hard}. It’s hard to imagine anything more over refined, food wise. But, then again, munching these may be just the thing to get you in the mood for the Footy to come. Just be careful not to swallow the football and choke yourself to death. Mmmm…..those food dyes look so scrumptious.

Thanks to certain people in Devon sending Cambridgeshire many buckets of rain, the parkrun course got a drenching but, thanks to my intervention by making sacrifices to the gods, the deluge didn’t happen until the last parkrunner came home. We repaired to the park cafe and drank coffee in the actual open air and then the Devon rain came down with a vengeance. Boy, did I do a lot of socialising today. I’m not a natural but I made a sustained effort and actually enjoyed chatting. The reason for this is that the vast majority of runners are very nice people and having now done 181 parkruns (mostly at Cambridge), I know a great many of them.

  1. Oh what a shame it was not there in time, will send quicker next week! Well done on the socialising not something I do well either but am always glad when I make the effort

    • The person who brought the Krispy Kremes into the office is too far gone and cannot be saved. Although you did a terrible thing by consuming one of them and claiming it was “delicious”, you can be redeemed by repenting your bad behaviour and repeating in your head “I wish they had offered me brussels sprouts.” Additionally, keep fresh carrot sticks in a cool box at work so if this deluded person offers you more doughnuts, you can go on the offensive and brandish your vegetables assertively. I trust this is helpful.
