It has happened to me more than once: there I'll be, arriving at a restaurant looking for a nice cup of coffee after a 10 miler. And the owner will look me up and down and say: 'Hello, out for a nice WALK?'
That is nót what a girl who has just conquered 10 miles likes to hear!
But I'm trading up in the world, because last Sunday when I stumbled into a local pub the waitress gently said: 'Having a nice jog?'
So at least I've been promoted to a jogger.
Maybe next time they'll see I'm a runner!
