‘Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.’
(Lord Tennyson 1850)
Yup, new beginnings and snow, Tennyson captures the current UK mood pretty succinctly.
Welcome to an LGN 2010 fresh running start.
Life is full of choices and in the land of instant gratification your resplendent health and friendship are two of life’s few essentials that can’t be purchased and that makes them all the more special.
So to kick off your year with a positive decision and or a NY resolution, LGN is very happy to offer you two key choices to help forge your 2010 destiny.
Deep Pan versus Thin Crust:
1. Pizza Express 2 for 1 offer – with a delicious Capricciosa pizza & 900 calories awaiting you via http://www.pizzaexpress-offers.co.uk/
2. LGN Run Club discount 10%+ and free video biomechanical analysis at Runners Need http://www.runnersneed.co.uk/home.aspx
Hypothermic Hermit versus Happy Homo Sapien Horde:
In an urban community where population density is often population anonymity, how about ditching the iPod and running social at the weekend? Go on mend some bridges for 2010 call that friend and run together for both warmth of bod and heart.
If your friend is unsure then we suggest a sing-a-long to the following lyrics written by 4 lads after they completed the Merseyside Half Marathon in 1969 and wanted to capture in music their friendship enhanced endorphin post race high.
‘Oh I get by with a little help from my friends’
Mmmm, I get high with a little help from my friends.’
