As a runner you are part of the landscape. And as a part of the landscape you hear the most interesting things!
I was doing my Granny's Run (eight kilometers to a Granny's), when two postmen cycled past me, in mandarin colored jackets.
'Don't you understand anything?!' postman no.1 exclaimed.
Postman no.2 shrugged his shoulders in a gesture of helplessness.
'Do you have any money on you?' postman no.2 continued in strict tones
Postman no.2 nodded like a good little boy.
'Well then! You just go out and buy the missus some flowers, and you're right as rain again!' postman no.1 declared proudly.
Postman no. 2 gave him a doubtful look, and I could see he wasn't at all sure some flowers would make everything alright again.
Seeing his doubtful look postman no.1 repeated his earlier statement: 'Don't you know anything?!'
Talking busily they slowly changed into two mandarincolored spots on my horizon.
Who says running is dull?!
Well I do, but it's also full of treats and surprises!
