Scottish Athletics bans the use of headphones during road races. This is a major issue to me because, instead of listening to music, I have to listen to Andrew’s chat.
This is his “banter” from Saturday’s Loch Leven half marathon.
He spots a tree – “Look there’s a tree!”
He spots a hill – “Look there’s a hill!”
He spots a sheep – “Look there’s a cow!”
Animal recognition isn’t one of his strong points.
Quite frankly, after his umpteenth, “Look there’s a ….” I was quite happy to let him run off. So, at mile 9, I decreased my speed and let him go ahead.
He thinks he ran off because I was tired. Yes – I was tired of his chat!
