Hit the road, Jack!

Today’s run was an almost unmitigated disaster: lethargic, slow, grinding, and about as far from enjoyable as you can get.  Until forty-six minutes in, when I ran past a party and got a thirty second blast of Hit the road, Jack! 

My form improved, my pace picked up, the nay-saying voices in my head quietened down, and I even stopped fantasising about bus stops.

Temporarily at least.

I’ve rarely been so pleased to reach home.
