Forget to recount a rather amusing story from this morning
I was running up Hipps Hill in Valley Gardens which was thronged
with folk looking at the spring flowers. A young girl, 6 or 7, was coming down
the hill with her parents and she smiled at me and then turned to her parents
and said in that voice, which is supposed to be a whisper but in fact carries
very clearly- “he’s doing very well for
an old man!”
Cue much embarrassment from her parents which I defused by
saying “that’s the nicest thing anyone has said about my running for a long
time” . Smiles all round.
