I did this for my upcoming race, the Thames Trot 50 … most of the route of which is still underwater due to the recent torrential rains. I made a list of negatives, then tried to answer these with positives.
However, the idea of two lists – the positive and the negative - was scuppered by a friend who told me to throw away the list of negatives. I did so.
I was left with this. It doesn't make a lot of sense but maybe you can work out what the negatives ... were.
Positive: Wearing flippers is fun. It would make it a lot more interesting than a normal 50 miler wearing trainers.
Positive: Can always resort to a cork. Although maybe immodium might be a better idea. Would be embarrassing having to admit to the reasons behind shooting a fellow runner with a cork accidentally.
Positive: Although snow was forecast a few days ago so that'll make a nice change.
Positive: I'll have pick'n'mix sweeties.
Positive: Will have crème eggs.
I like this idea of positive only lists. In fact it all sounds positively jolly. Sweets, flippers and accidental shootings.
