Flat rat

Today I ran to Regent's Park, did a circuit, then sat outside The Boathouse Cafe to stare at the lake. It was all very lovely till a small child pointed out a huge dead rat on the decking next to the pedalos. It was massive. And it was very flat. I can only assume it had been taken out in a freak pedalo accident. And, to add insult to injury, it was covered in bird poo. Thankfully, the child also pointed out some pretty green parakeets, which were much more pleasant on the eyes. We discussed whether it might have been them who defiled the unfortunate rodent. Poor old ratty. Nice run though.

(Stats: 5.45 miles; 55 minutes; 10.04 minute/mile.)


  1. Perhaps the rat expired due to malnutrition after waiting for you to complete a circuit?

  2. Haha... You're probably right!
