Danger Run

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

About a week ago, I signed up for a 10km fun run that starts and finishes on the other side of the canal from me. It is currently 9am on the morning of the run and I have just discovered that I need a doctor’s certificate in order to participate. In France, you can smoke and drink as much as you want but you can’t even contemplate doing any sort of sporting activity without consulting your doctor to see if you might die from it. I had stupidly not read the fine print on the email I was sent and this morning have discovered the truth, after leaving a party early last night and avoiding not drinking too much etc etc. Plus I was all excited as I have never done a fun run before and 10km is a nice challenge for me. I’m going to try and get in anyway but it is highly likely I’ll be refused. I guess if they refuse me then I’ll just do my own 10km run and it’ll be a much nicer course than the one they have set out. So NER to them, stupid French.
