I went a run today

I went a run today. I ran for 4 miles round Edinburgh. It took me around 31 minutes. I wore a blue helly hansen top, a blue pair of tracksters and a pair of Saucony road shoes which I bought a few months ago from Adrian at Run and Become. After my run I had a shower and went back to work.

Everyone happy with this post?

I liked the last one better, mate. Don't let the humourless anonymous numpties get you down. Ain't it remarkable how easily cowardice comes to some people?

Tried a pair of Saucony Hurricanes about three or years ago. Didn't get on with them at all, so chucked them before they were even properly trashed and went straight back to Asics 2000 Series!

Been working late at school tonight and just about to take a torchlit run up to the Penstock. With Asics 2130s on my feet. :-)

it is nice, but not very funny

Debbie Martin-Consani said...

WTF? Tracksters? As in those Ronhill ski-pant things..?

Debbie Martin-Consani said...

Ps: Have you let Mrs B out of her straight jacket yet :-) The last I heard from her she was off to have a stroke!

You clearly need to use emoticons more ;-)
Also you should maybe avoid mentioning brand names lest you be seen to favour WHW entrants who wear the same kit as you :-(
It's nice to know your top and tracksters were colour co-ordinated :D

Don't you mean "I went FOR a run today". What a numpty.

allybea said...

Been telling him for years to co-ordinate his colours. Glad to know he's listening to something I tell him!

BP back to normal after a stiff G&T :)

allybea said...

Nope it's going back up again.

These anonymous comments are becoming nasty and vindictive and personal.

Brian Mc said...

What on earth is going on? I read the WHWR forum last night and caught up on all the hoo-haa that followed Ian's previous post about race entries.

I suspect that the lack of personal attribution inherent in electronic communication between people who have not met is at the heart of this. If you haven't met someone and talked to them personally you have no emotional connection to them and don't know whether to trust them or not. Consequently messages are mis-interpreted with meanings and intentions misconstrued very easily.

The best way out of this would be for the anonymous objectors and Ian to meet. I'm 100% certain after a pint / coffee / orange juice (not necessarily all in one glass) that all problems would simply evaporate. Is this possible?

Let's see if 'anonymous' misinterprets this comment then: Fuck off you twat.

You can always count on the Subversive one :-)

Lee Maclean said...

Debs- he asked me if he should post that one. I said no... he had already posted it!! I should have known better ;)

MM x

Debbie Martin-Consani said...

Lee,
I nearly fell off the seat laughing.
Marco had to talk me out of posting quite a few things on the forum yesterday. And I promised Ian I wouldn't fall out with anyone. If only had the Subversive way of words. Actually maybe I should have signed in as him :-) :-)

You big Poof, real men wear shorts.

allybea said...

I am crying with laughter here, snot running out my nose and generally snorting louder than Ian does at 3am.

Ok I'm bordering on hysteria here now.

Debbie Martin-Consani said...

From the guy who runs in those silly five-finger shoes...Now that's funny :-)

Anonymous said...

I don't know where to start...

Firstly blue?? White makes the tan stand out. Always go white..

Anyway, don't think I can make the race next year, gutted to miss; mates wedding and I'm best man so a 'should not miss' date.

Good luck with it all; ignore and keep posting what you want; loads of comments = good blog post.

Cheers

Iain Ridgway

Hi Ian, as you know I follow your posts regularly and have been doing do for years with hubby after I read about your exploits in the Independent but I take offence at Subversive Runner´s comments. having just come back from holiday I catch up to find this filth. Totally inappropriate and I wont be reading again. Good luck

Subversive Runner said...

Dear Susan, you'll probably not read this as you've said you'll not read Ian's blog again but I'll say it anyway.

I apologise if my language offended you. However, I felt it quite appropriate to use such Anglo-Saxonisms in response to anonymous and ignorant comments being made on Ian's blog.

Filth? I think that's a little bit strong but each to his own. By the way, have you ever seen Billy Connolly?

I suggest you keep reading Ian's blog and boycott mine www.subversive-running.blogspot.com

There's LOADS of filth on there!!
