I had intended to run this but I took a sick day… I was not too well.

Snail statistics
"Warriorwomen running" has a blog post where she talks about her training partner crushing snails on the run. Her run summary goes:

Day 12 Tally
Snails squished: 6
Runs: 9/12
Run Distance: 2.08k/19.7k
Alcohol Free Days: 4/12

So I suggest that when the snails emerge after the next lot of rain (which we have been promised but which never seems to happen) I want to see a "snails squished" tally in your statistics too. Thank you.


  1. I'm horrified!! It's not so long ago that my FB facebook pic had me as a snail. We may be slow, but us snails deserve more than that ......

    P.S. Thanks for all the reminders re XC champs. It looks a decent sized field for Vets :-)

  2. I favour protecting all tortoises. So you're safe Janene.
