After a really good morning of studying, I dropped a banana and a Snickers round to Liz's as a good luck token for the Great Manchester Run tomorrow, then zipped round this route on my bike. It started to rain pretty hard as I pulled through West Didsbury, and by the time I got to the section between Palatine Rd and Hardy Lane I was soaked. Fuck it, I thought, I'm already wet - so I'm going to take on every puddle on this side of the river. Fun fun fun.
The cargo pants didn't cope too well with the mud. Nor the yellow hoody. I had a big dirty stripe down the middle of my back. It smelt like victory.
