It transpires that Amy's Ant is a type of fly used in fishing. I never knew that.

Amy Goes the Extra Mile
Posted Jun 12, 2004
*jogs into a brand new journal thread wearing one red sock and five white ones*
My Sport Relief (http://www.sportrelief.com) pack has arrived so it's time to get down to some more serious training. The idea this time is that I a timed mile in Roundhay Park, Leeds on Sport Relief Day (10th July) and collect sponsorship money for doing so. When I've run the mile they'll give me another red sock to prove that I've done it. Personally, I think they should give me an additional five socks but that's probably just me .
The most observant and least drunk amongst you will notice that July 10 is also the date of the h2g2 meet in London. Obviously, I won't be attending the meet but I'm going to take advantage of the coincidence by asking those attending the meet to sponsor me and to give their money to Ormondroyd U95721 who will have my sponsor form with him.
If you're going to the meet and would like to commit yourself in advanced to sponsoring me - or if you have other means of getting sponsorship money either to Ormy or to myself - please post in this thread and I'll write your h2g2 nickname on my race number as one of my 'Mile Mates.' So, in a way, you'll do the mile with me. And you get to drink while you're doing it. Who could say fairer than that?
I was about to say that you won't go all red and blotchy either but that probably depends on how much you drink.
If you'll excuse me, I'd better go and practise.

Amy Runs for Life

*jogs through in her new 'Run for Life' t-shirt*
The t-shirt and natty hat have arrived so it's time to start training in earnest. I'm wearing the t-shirt - I may as well, before it goes in the wash - but not the hat. The streets of Leeds aren't ready for an ant in a bright pink hat just yet.
Day 1: Run 1 minute, walk 1 minute for 10 to 15 minutes. How hard can it be?
