The Race of a lifetime…

13 Sep

Today I must beat Harry, my life, well at least my dignity depends on it. Harry is my nephew and every year we have an annual running race, as yet I am undefeated. Harry is 11 years old tomorrow, I wish I was racing him tomorrow because the idea of losing to a ten-year old is not so palatable. Harry is also off to the South Island Cross Country Championships. I fear losing to Harry, I fear losing to my nephew before his voice has broken… Gloating in boy soprano is almost unbearable.

There is only one way to beat a ten-year old… you have to burst out of the blocks, puts yards on them early, crush their spirits.

    I suggest spiking his breakfast cereal with 500ml of vodka. That should make an 11 year old run funny. Hell it would make me run funny!
