Canicross

I hesitate to post this in the 'Sports' section

I do Parkrun sometimes on Saturdays. For those of you that don't know, Parkrun is running for people who can't run. In the same way that Sunday League Football is football for people who can't play football.

Recently we have had an insurgence* of Canicrossers.

Canicross is Cross Country running with dogs on leads.

It was particularly bad a few weeks ago when all the doggie types were in the area for Crufts.

It's bizarre. They are nearly all tiny women being pulled along by huge dogs, and unsurprisingly they record fast times (unless the dog has a Gove somewhere and they have to stop and pick it up).
It's also impossible for anyone to hear the Race Director's announcements as they are all howling in synchrony*. That's the dogs not the women.

I expect it will be in the Olympics soon.

*apologies if these are made up words but i think you'll get the drift.

Seconded.

FAO LD, that's not a chase in Huddersfield. It's foreplay.

Back on topic:

I've seen it in Roundhay Park as well. Most of the runners are beetroot red from running and the dogs just have that "Fucksupwiyer?" look about them as they are still ready to run some more. I always see running as a solitary pursuit, at least that's how I enjoy it. But Roundhay has that glut of middle class cretins who aren't interested in doing anything unless its in a group. Be it rowing on the lake, running, or biking. And they wouldn't dare step foot out of the door without all the latest kit on. All the gear and no idea! Knobbers.

Top tip. It was funny the first time. Don't over-milk it.

If one did run (one doesn't, as one has people to do that sort of thing for one), I can't see it working with Lady Sooty and Lady Belle on the lead, seeing as they'd be stopping every five yards for an intensive sniffing session.
Grind

I'm pretty sure I was the only human out walking their dogs for the last four months or so here when it's been a bit parky, but even I've noticed a few "dope on a rope" labradoodle-fecktard Lycra-Clad exercise pairings of late.
sheeps

I played Sunday League football and I was brilliant.

Kinky Friedman, novelist, and leader of legendary C&W combo, the Texas Jewboys, used the euphemism 'taking a Nixon' for having a shit.

I can recommend his books. But not necessarily his music.
