Murphy's Laws of Running

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, December 03, 2005 with 1 comment
...the minute you sign-up for a race and pay the cash you either get injured or catch a cold.
...it rains on your long run days and is sunny and fine on your days off
...triathletes, when your running is going well, either your goggles break during the swim, or the chain snaps on your bike
...when your swimming, running and cycling are all going well, you head the wrong way in the transition
...you think of the tactics you should have used, after the race is over
...the photos they publish of you are always less flattering than the ones you take of other people
...in an otherwise empty locker room, any two individuals will have adjoining lockers.
...when you find the perfect running shoe, it will be discontinued
...when you run your fastest time, the electronic timing will have failed
...the handicap race you excel in will be the one where Mr Burglar turns up for his annual victory
...the older you get the faster you were
