Running on - shadows of echoes of memories of songs

Running on
3 miles in 29 minutes, not far or fast but fairly respectable given a) not being used to running at night, b) new insoles which still feel a bit weird, and c) persistent stomach cramps which I was kinda hoping the running would cure, but eh, never mind. At the end I was still thinking "hmmm, actually, I could happily run a bit further" and decided against, which was probably the right decision. I'm doing the Town & Gown 10K on Sunday, and various lovely people have between them already pledged £210 in sponsorship money which doesn't depend on how fast I run, though gives me an incentive to keep going. Would be nice to do it in under an hour, but the only thing I have promised myself I will do is finish.

I never thought I'd prefer to go running than go to a gig with addedentry, but given how muggy it is outside at the moment I can think of quite a few places I'd rather be than in the Cellar Bar... In the bath, maybe, with a mug of peppermint tea and a good book. Yes. I grow old, I grow old.

G'luck with the run. I feel rather lazy for having not entered this year's Great Manchester Run.

If I offer you a tenner's sponsorship, can you let me know some way of getting it to you?

That's generous of you - thank you! Not sure how best to send it but if you email me we can probably sort something out...

Good luck for Sunday! Have I already agreed to sponsor you? If not, can I?

Thank you! You're not down on the sponsors list but on the other hand your husband has already sponsored me twice what most people did, but on the other other hand I don't want to do that thing where I assume that the two halves of a married couple are actually the same person/bank account, but on the other other other hand now that sounds like I'm asking for money, and, oh, hell's bells... yes! If you want! But you don't have to! But nor does anybody! Whether or not their partner(s) has/have/had! And vice versa! Twice!
