Today I went to the Great Yorkshire Run (10K) in Sheffield to cheer on my friend Fiona, who has done it on six consecutive occasions and got a medal today. By her own admission Fiona is "not very good" (I don't quite believe that) but that's not the point. She is a runner and she gets out there, along with about 6000 others, and does it.
Next year I'm running too. I can already do 10K (whisper it not, faster than Fiona) and Laura has told me I'm a runner.
Next year I'm running too.
