On Monday I picked up this hippo on my run and carried it home under my arm. I must have made an odd sight! Tonight I picked up a slide that I had seen last night and wondered about. It was still there so I decided to take it. My new running partner, my neighbour, encouraged me to take it and then said I looked like a thief. It’s hard to run gracefully with a plastic slide under your arm, I found.
It was great to run tonight, around 5k including a stretch on the grass of Peckham Rye. And, for the first time since I left my last job in October 2012, I had a running partner for the whole route. Even though we went fairly casually and my endomondo app/gps cut off some of the route, I enjoyed myself. Roll on Parkrun on Saturday!
