A running problem

Half the joy of this running gig is imagining the victory photo of me crossing the line, never having to run again, at the end of the duathlon.

What I hadn't anticipated when undertaking this mission is the extreme purple face. I don't want a picture of the extreme purple face. Darn.

No. Purple faces are a bad look.

I loved your cake by the way.

Thanks Caroline.

I've looked up purple faces on The Google. Apparently there is nothing you can do about them except get so fit that your heartrate doesn't increase at all.

Sounds a bit tedious.

Just make sure it's black and white film. The photographer for the Petone Daily Times will be okay, but the glossy monthly magazines aren't.

I AM the Petone Daily Times.

I used to get the purple face thing with two activities - hard core exercise and drinking. Neither were pretty.

See if you can aim for a more red than purple face!
