Non-runners can never understand how hard it is to get rid of your favourite pair of old running shoes. We’ve been through so much together.

Christmas jumper

Sunday, December 29th, 2019 | Life, Photos

I’ve never really had a Christmas jumper. I have a Finnish jumper, with raindeer on, that I trot out each Christmas to join in the festivities. But ideally, Christmas jumpers should be horribly loud garish.

When I saw this one, I couldn’t resist:

It reads:

All I want for Christmas is the means of production

For those who do not recognise the quote, that is a reference to Karl Marx.

Of course, there is a huge amount of irony in someone taking the work of Marx, commoditising it into a jumper that they have then sold me using a global marketplace like Facebook. But surely Marx himself saw this coming?

2019 UCI Road World Championships road race

The final race of the World Championships was the men’s elite road race.

However, as it started from Leeds city centre, walking up to The Headrow at 9am did not seem too big an ask.
