Is running ladylike?

I think not but, more fool me, I've signed up for the sport relief mile and so really thought I'd better have a go at running.
I honestly believe I've never run a mile non-stop, certainly not since starting secondary school - and when forced to d cross-country, my friend and I just used to run around the corner, walk and chat for most of the sourse and the jog hen coming back into view.
So...... training!
Blimey it's hard work but I can now run a mile as long a sI have some 'walky bits' in the middle and have been working on extending the length of time I can run without stopping and/or collapsin.  I'm up to 1/3 mile now whih sounds good until you realise the mile has to be run in 2 weeks and 2 days.  Not that I'm counting or anything!
IF you'd like us - "&son" is running too we'd really appreciate it.  We have a just giving page  here

So that's why I've not been crafting lately - I've been running instead but I'll be back soon (maybe with blisters!)
