This one, a gem found in a Roman ruin in Budapest. Martial, a first century Roman poet writes:
To trifle in the various sports to which every open space is devoted, when one can run, is sloth.
(Martial, XXXII 5-15)
By the sounds of it, Martial quite enjoyed sloth, and until the fair weather shines, so do I! But having taken a season or two off playing hockey to run long distance, I think it may be time to change the running pattern to build up to next hockey season! Looking forward to training runs on the Welsh border, in Scottish Highlands, south Spain, Morocco and along the banks of the Lee, over the next few weeks, thanks to kind people giving me free places to stay. Thanks all!
