Unbelieveable. Trainspotting comes to Croydon.
I was running along last night in the local park minding my own business, then out of the blue, well, the bushes on the other side of the road to be precise came a frickin paintball! Caught me right on my side!
I couldn't believe it. I stood there stunned for a minute or two, watching two figures in the bushes jump up and run off! I almost decided to give chase, but thought better of it after a couple of seconds, as I'm not sure what I would have said to them if I caught up. But I was fuming.
Calmed down today but I am left with a big welt on my side where the said paintball found it's mark. Ouch.
I'm sure it was "only kids" having a bit of fun so feel a little more forgiving today, but at the time, oh if I'd caught them...
The upside was that the adrenaline hit made the last couple of miles of the run pretty easy! Which was nice, I suppose.
