Until recently, I'd always thought that all a single woman had to do to meet a man was go along to a pub and sit at the bar nursing a glass of white wine. It is the rule of the Cosmos that single women in pubs are always chatted up. Just start touting your wares on any of the dating websites and the guys'll come a'runnin'. In future, don't moan to your friends about being single. Your friends and family are the people who are most likely to know of a single guy who is going to be on a level with you. All you need to do is start rattling the swill-drum. The general drill is that you start off at about 9am, run for about 30 miles, and then bed down for the night in some chilly school hall. And when I started running these ultras, I realised that the women runners are outnumbered by the men by at least ten to one.
There's a chance, a teeny-tiny chance, that you might meet the guy of your dreams. More likely though, whether it's the pub or the dating site, you'll just meet some rogue who's out for... And what most single women generally want to meet is a guy who is single; and who is not a complete low-lifer; and who might share her values; and who just might, perhaps, be looking for a relationship. But I'd certainly remember all about them if I'd been offered enough of a reward. All across the UK, there is a complete epidemic of these long runs. And then there are the actual ultra-runners themselves, who, though they are invariably lean and sinewy, do tend to be slightly...
We endeavour to put in the groundwork so that even before you meet someone, you know that you will have a few things to connect you in a positive way.
They sometimes ask me if I know of any fellow singles. The supper ends, hugs and kisses all round, and then off I go and I forget all about my single friends' plight. And admittedly a case of Bollinger might seem quite steep - close to £400. I ran a couple of races, the Druid and the Pilgrim. First of all you've got to (quite) like running for extremely long distances.
I know many single men and women who bleat on about their lonely status, and who say they just can't meet a man/woman. Anyway: the point is that I started doing a few ultra-runs.
