‘Every Man’ illustrations: running

‘Every Man’ illustrations

by Chris Sav

My running style, like many actions I carry out, can be described as pretty awkward. This leads to me being self consciousness about running in public and risking anyone witnessing a daddy long-legs without wings attempting to move its legs in quick succession. I’m more likely to find a treadmill in the corner of the gym, and attempt to drown out the banal dance tunes blaring from the gym’s speakers with my own equally questionable music. Of course, running out in the open is infinitely better, for many reasons including visual stimulation and fresh air. I often run in my local park, for its beauty, but mostly because a few period dramas have been filmed there. Sometimes I imagine falling into the lake and emerging from it like Colin Firth’s Darcy, but considerably more awkward, under the glare of a perturbed duck.
