Looking around London at the moment, you would think that the entire city has gone for an extended jog. Dusting off the cobweb infested trainers and hitting the park, the sidewalk or the riverbank with reckless abandon. I hate to be a spoil sport but I can’t wait for the omg-my-saddle-bags-are-hitting-my-ankles resolutions to be over in a few weeks.
