Here at the Science of Sport, we take a reasonably serious view on sport, since we try to analyse and dissect what goes into what you see. Of course, we try to keep things light and easy to follow, so that the science is interesting, but it’s still pretty factual. But we’re as open to some humour as anyone, and that’s why this blog, Half-fast, is a must-read. We got a good post from Vanilla for our Comrades behind the scenes story, and so I checked out this blog – hilarious! It’s really great entertainment, videos and all! So check it out, you’ll enjoy it for some light relief and Vanilla is a runner I’ve no doubt we can all relate to as well!
I hope you don’t mind Vanilla, but you had a quote that I thought was absolutely priceless, so I’d like to include it in our blog. If that’s a problem, just let me know and I’ll take it down.
“Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a lion or gazelle – when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” – Unknown
Check out the rest of the blog for some great articles – it’s a little different from the science, but great reading!
