In response to your question, Old Black: yes, I am signed up for the Great Edinburgh Run in May. Paid my money and everything so I am committed to training for it. My brother and sister-in-law who live in the Lake District are also coming up to Edinburgh to run it. My sister-in-law is apparently already running 6 miles at a time on the treadmill, so obviously I hate her. Well, okay, I don't hate her but I am already thinking up excuses for when I come in half an hour behind her in May.
A few of us at work are also toying with the idea of doing the half marathon version of the Moonwalk this year. Haven't decided for certain yet - the idea of paying £40 or so to walk 13 miles at night wearing a decorated bra still seems a bit odd, even if it is for charity. I'm told it's a great experience though so we may well take the plunge. I gather men can take part in it too (unlike the Race for Life) so I might be able to persuade Husband to participate (though I seriously doubt we would get him into a decorative undergarment!).
Finally, it would appear that today is National Delurking Day. Chris at Rude Cactus says so, so it must be true. I am nothing if not unoriginal....I mean, fashionable, so I'm joining in. If you read this, go on , leave a comment. Just a little tiny one. Even if it just says "Hi!" or "Your blog is rubbish. I'm off!" Humour me. That means you too, husband. I know you're out there.
