New Year's resolution - I've signed up to my first marathon

Most of my previous new year’s resolutions have involved cutting down on swearing and eating less chocolate.

While giving up one led to an inevitable increase in the other, this year’s resolution will leave me too tired to swear but able to scoff plenty of chocolate without putting a single ounce in weight on.

I foolishly said I’d run a marathon this year, in front of other witnesses at the bar on New Year’s Eve. Next morning I was not only weighed down with a hangover but the realisation of just how far 26 miles is.

And so, sober and showered, I can look forward to the Manchester Half Marathon on April 8. More here
