So the gallery is back following a New Year break and Tara has set what is no doubt going to be a very amusing prompt; body parts. Of course a certain filter needs to be applied here in choosing a photo, I’m sure I have some from stag weekends that contain body parts…. Anyway here’s 2 photos’ from me, strangely enough both of my feet, I don’t have an obsession or strange fetish, just the 2 that sprang to mind. I warn you though; the second photo is a little gruesome.
Firstly, as some of you may know I’m a bit crazy and run to work every day; it’s about 3 miles each way from the train station to the office and despite the ‘extreme’ weather (i.e. it was cold) I haven’t wimped out of running yet. It did get a little interesting as the snow got compacted and turned to ice, in fact on more than one occasion I did some impressive ballet pirouettes and also a couple of one foot slides. I also on the whole wore shorts to run in, which is fine for the running bit, but as soon as you stand at the station for more than 2 minutes you start to shiver uncontrollably. Anyway, I tweeted this at the time, but here’s the evidence of me in my shorts and running stuff in the snow!
My second contribution is the worst injury I sustained in almost 20 years of playing rugby. So pretty good really considering some of the injuries my friends had; but painful none the less. This believe it or not is ‘just’ a sprained ankle! I went over on it when tackling someone and the joint dislocated slightly. Our physio took great pleasure in clicking it back into place and by the end of the day I could barely walk on it. It took me about 2 months before I could even start running again!
