While everyone's asking "Will Sarah Palin run in 2012?", I'm asking myself if I'll run ever again. I have come to realise that once you miss one training, you start missing many more. It has been 17 days since my last run and I have no desire to pound the pavement at this moment. Blame it on the rain. Or the chores. Or how the sky darkens earlier now than before.
Have I become a has-been like Sarah? There have been reports that she could become a chat show host – as Tina Fey, the comedian and Palin impersonator, pointed out. "I’m either runnin’ in four years’ time or I’m goin’ to be a white Oprah, so, you know, I’m good either way.”
But I'm no diva with no ambition to be a yellow Oprah. I should be running instead.
