Promises, promises

The day after I started blogging, unknown to me, the warm and generous Jenny Davidson of the admirable blog Light Reading wrote this post:

Link: Light reading: Things I really must do before I die.

In this post, she firmly comments that she is not going to run a marathon because she does not like running.

Less than a year later, she has just run a half-marathon. Congratulations to Jenny, a most lovely, interesting, literate and erudite blogger. Jenny will always be held in the highest esteem on this blog as she was the first person ever to comment on it.

OK, as she has gently reminded me, "lipstick, anyone?"
