No, I haven't joined a cult. I just thought it was a funny title. You see, during my 5k run yesterday where I once again managed to keep my 5k time to under an hour (not by much but it was still under an hour so I'm pleased) amidst the general rubbish people feel the need to throw onto the side of the road -no I don't know why they do that either, it's disgusting and Dhiny and I are planning on plogging soon - I found something next to a road sign.
A little pink toy hippo (pictured), it was wearing a scarf but the scarf was snagged on something and I couldn't untangle it. I always think it's a shame when stuffed toys are left out in the rain, I don't like it when they're tied to places road traffic accidents have been either btw, left there to just go moldy and fall apart when they can be washed and donated to a charity shop for another person to take home, so I tucked said hippo into my pocket and it's now in the washing machine.
I've decided it's now my running mascot, lol and I don't know, maybe the 'finding a random hippo' made my run go quicker because the silliness of it made me laugh.
Also, let's face it, who before they started C25K hasn't felt like a bit of a hippo? I know I have.
