Better Late Than Never

by Russell Turner - 20:55 on 21 July 2018

I don’t often forget about a gig. I blame the confusion on my shifting around this week’s runs. Fortunately, after the concerned phone call from Keith, wondering where I was because I was an hour late for set-up, I was able to reach Silver Sands at Lossiemouth in time for our two 45-minute sets – which started late anyway because the bingo ran late. We know our place.

It’s a pity it didn’t turn out to be a good one. School holidays mean that the audience members were a lot younger than at our last appearance and the adults were less inclined to let themselves go. That’s the way it is sometimes. Jenna didn’t care – her Orkney admirer had come down for the weekend so she was happy.

The rearranged runs meant I had my middle one today (ie not easy and not long). I settled for a fast 5k, and despite humidity and the late night would have hit a new PB if I’d not had to stop 0.3km short because I was desperate to pee. I blame Matchgirl, who says I don’t drink enough water.
