This afternoon I visited a sports shop. Running trainers start at £25. Not bad, if you don’t think you’ll quit by the end of the week. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if I quit by the end of the day, so needless to say, I left the shop empty handed. Instead I agreed that if I make it to week eight then I will buy myself some fancy, branded kit.

Side note: On my way home from the sports shop a runner passed me. He wasn’t wearing running trainers. It made me feel better.

I’m running on behalf of the National Children’s Bureau. Donate here!
