Update: Smug is in London and will probably run the Serpentine 5K on Friday. The event was sold out but still open for sub 17 runners so Smug turned Smug and sent them an e-mail asking whether he were eligible to run the race. Got a reply from the race director who’s saying that Smug is “very much welcome to run the race on Friday”. So now Smug is really excited and nervous and really feels that he has to run faster than ever. If the race doesn’t go according to the plan, I guess I could always blame everything on the jet-lag, which in fact is still hitting Smug pretty hard.
