  • Very early start

    My alarm went off at six, and I tried to ignore it. It was damp outside, and my chest was still sore from the last few weeks of coughing. The mere idea of running ten kilometres just to stand around reading barcodes at the parkrun held no appeal. I rolled over and attempted to go […]

Perhaps through guilt, or fear of salmonella, I fried the egg far too long and far too hot, providing […]
