Run! They’re chasing you! Run!

4 March, 2009

My housemates and I had agreed to go running tonight, so I’d been psyching myself up all day. One by one they made their excuses, but it would have been a waste of perfectly good psyche to not go, so I went anyway.

    • Yeah. It’s quite embarrassing.

      Shoes, music and the cover of darkness, this is the way 😉
