Really Interesting and Lovely Things I Saw on a Run Today, Part 2

As I mentioned in another post a few months ago (yes, that’s a long time. I’m sorry but I’m just inconsistent, I promise to get better) I have begun the act of running which is a form of exercise (those words in italics are the original Latin spellings) and have vowed to inform you of all the interesting shit I see whilst plodding and spluttering around.

Yesterday I went for a very intense run indeed, featuring lots of really fast running but then some slow running.

Really Interesting and Lovely Things I Saw on a Run Today:

The ghost of my dead grandfather.

Wow, that’s a bit macabre isn’t it? How on earth did that happen? Well, as I mentioned this was a very intense run and I didn’t have enough to drink, unfortunately. So after about 20 minutes I began to become dehydrated, and then I began to hallucinate. And there he was. I’ve never actually met my grandfather as he died before I was born so don’t know what he looks like. But it was definitely him; he was old, wearing a hi-vis North Face cagoule (as they were very popular during WW2) and was walking a ghost dog that was barking and trying to sniff my arse.

It was definitely him. I’m sure of it.



Hi, i’m  Fionn Shiner (pronounced Finn oddly enough), a 20 year old Second Year Student at the London School of Economics, studying Politics and Philosophy. I’ve spent most of my life in Birmingham, although was born in Liverpool, but now I live in London (obviously).

So, how this blog will work is that I am going to have running short stories about various different characters. Their stories will be updated from time to time, whenever I see fit. So far, I have started two; JP and Bernard’s Watch(ing you). Please check them out. They’re at the top of the page.

I hope that the writing is fun, I certainly enjoy writing it, but I am aware it is essentially a useless pastime that is not furthering or developing humankind.

I’m not helping anyone really, am I?
