I went into my local Spar for some secret chocolate for after lunch (sssshhhh don’t tell anyone) and the guy serving me said:
A bit surprised, I almost said, yes I did a marathon a few weeks ago, how did you know?
But then I realised he was probably talking about the GSR so I told him I’d paced at the 10k.
Then he said he’d done his first 10k in 52 minutes… I praised him for a job well done and then I noticed he was proudly wearing his ‘Finisher tshirt’.
Then he started asking me about running clubs and it went on from there.
I recommended the Bella Harriers or the Glasgow Running Network depending on what level he wanted to start at. And I also gave him my card for my blog. ;-P
I’ve posted about people knowing I’m a runner before. When I’m in my casual gear, but not my sports / running gear. My salomons and my runners physique must give it away! 😉 I must still look like a runner! Funny. 😉
