Almost naked and running in Trafalgar Square!
We had to go into London today and after our appointment at LAMDA we found ourselves strolling through Trafalgar Square when there was a bit of a rumpus.
"Oooo look at those runners Doug" said Rachel
"No no don't look Rachel" but it was too late, he had gone past.
And then a few more, all in their bright red skimpy Speedos and little else. Flippin' 'eck I thought, I'm not gonna run through here wearing only those. It's December. Talk about temperatures and brass monkeys. Still, they seemed to be enjoying themselves. "Don't look Rachel but again I was too late".
Mind you, dressed like that you'd have to run around just to keep warm, although it has to be said we do seem to lose quite a bit of heat through out heads and at least they were wearing the latest in Santa's thermal running gear.
No, no way, you wouldn't catch me doing that. I know I'm a committed runner and I'm planning to run everyday over Christmas but not like that. Call me a prude if you will, see if I care. Turns out it's a flash mob called Santacon and has been gaining in popularity over recent years, helped by social media.
