booktrunk - might be worth having a look at city council reg's and seeing if you can pitch a tent on a bit of the park that isn't official campsite. Or you could ignore local bylaws and do a bit of late-night stealth pitching.
Hmmmmmm…………….wardrobe. Yellow and black. Will be easy for the search and rescue team to find in the dark.
I've succumbed to a dose of whichever random lurgy the weans have had this week. Nothing major, just feeling really wabbit (a wee bit of language practise for those of you of a southern persuasion ). Still, better to get it out of the way now than in a week's time. I am so looking forward to the next 10 days of winding down (not that I've done much to wind down from!). I'm on holiday now until after LN, so lots of early nights, good food and a wee bit of jogging in between.
Been AWOL from the thread for a wee while. Had a marathon meltdown after a particularly crap run, and decided to withdraw from the race. Hadn't done anything like the training I'd originally intended, and my plan went down the pan a long time ago. I felt I was putting myself under so much pressure to do something which just wasn't working this time around, and which I didn't have to do. I felt so much better with that pressure off. So I had a few blissful days with not so much as thought about running.
And then a bit of a lightbulb moment, and the realisation that I just couldn't do it. I couldn't back out . Stubborn old cow.
I am now in a Zen-like state of calm and acceptance about the whole thing. It will probably be a whole new world of pain. It will take a loooooooong time. But it will be done. In my finest Pirate threads.
And then I'm going to get fantastically rubbered. On one beer.
