I’m only assuming he was a non-runner, but this morning a homeless guy unloaded at me about my purple shoes with orange laces.

“F&%k, F&%k, F&%k, F&%king purple shoes. Purple! F&%k, F&%king purple…”

Take heart, JXT. I've never seen a man with purple shoes and orange laces lose a race yet.

DadAgain your comment reminds me of something you often hear from an air headed / drunk / overly medicated spectator...
"You're all winners!"
So in that sense maybe i did win.  In a sense more embedded in reality I came in under 260th.

"You won't out run the flies at that pace" Wow! How rude. I may be slow but at least I am out there and faster than you dawdling along with your dog!

^^Don't worry claudicles, the flies down here seem to be moving a lot faster than me too! And I like your attitude. The rude bastard was probably jealous.

If anybody said that to me, I'd reply "So do I. Then I could sue the owner for millions!"

^ I always think of good things to say in hindsight, but never in the heat of the moment. Porpoise Spit cross country is a bit gladiatorial at times. If they don't like the way you run, the thumbs down is given, and they send in the lions and hyenas into finish you off.

"We thought it was you."

I suppose I should congratulate Squinty-face McTavish on having a thought, I hope it was an intelligent one.

'i hope that you have made a new years resolution to act your age and stop all that stupid running......no, replies i, i hope your new years resolution is to finally get of your ass and use your useless legs before they fall off.

I passed a family on the mangrove boardwalk.

A youngin says. "He's a big runner man." "Can we catch him?"

"Better not." Says mum.

Perhaps a future runner, the competitive spirit in one so young.

I had just finished my run around traralgon this morning, and was walking the last few hundred meters through the park near my accomodation. A guy all rugged up walking toward me on the path said 'you wouldnt happen to have a spare cigarette would you??' I replied increadulously 'do i look like a bloody smoker!!!!' Thats several times now when i have been out running i have either been asked for a fag or a light. Geeezzz

It's a pickup line, SK. Take it as a compliment, someone thinks you're "a bit of okay."

So I ran the Gold Coast Half marathon as Teddy my alter ego.

I got lots of encouragement.

"You got this Teddy."

"Looking good Teddy."

"Go Teddy go."

At about 17km I wasn't looking so good, and a couple sitting watching the race reclining in banana chairs look at mr and said.

"That's the death stare." Good call.
