Cross Country Runs

Remember cross country runs at school? The sleet and the biting wind. Having to wear mesh micro-shorts and a cotton T-shirt. The teacher with the clipboard. The shame of the results posted on the cork noticeboard for all to see. Crafty smokes. Sheltering behind hawthorn hedges and blanketed horses.

  1. Coming from inner-London, we were bussed out to Surrey for cross-country. I used to hide behind a hedge halfway round, wait until the leaders were coming after the second circuit, then slip in behind the front pack. I once came fourth, and the PE teacher told me I had ‘potential’. 🙂
    Cheers, Pete.
