Berlin, Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Jakarta, Bangkok, Cairo, London…

So I’m still pretty new to this whole ‘blogging’ thing, so I’m super psyched when I see people have clicked through for a snoop.  Over the last few days, however, I have noticed a worrying trend in the ‘tone’ of google searches that somehow lead to people discovering my site.  These are not the kinds of people I want to have flipping through old posts and checking out route maps to try to decipher where I live (I’m just going to save you the effort and say it’s at least a 5 minute warm-up/cool-down walk from any start).  I present to you, dear reader, exhibit A:

Now, I have named the site medal slut, and I am sure somewhere I have posted about the half marathon, or the Loch Ness Marathon in Inverness, but I did not expect to be linked with some lonely soul’s late night need for release.  For the record, I typed ‘slut in inverness’ into google and realized that my page doesn’t crop up until the seventh page of results – this dude had perseverance!  Still, I thought it must be a one off, and I had a chuckle.

Enter, January 10th!  Without further comment, I present to you exhibit B:


Now I’m not going to get all ‘Oh my god, groooooooss’ with this.  I’m going to milk it.  I am a slut for the medals, but I’ll tell you now, I am also a slut for the views.  Let’s work it google.  ‘Slut’ is always going to be there, so to capitalize on lonely perverts all I need to to is name drop different cities!  Kaboom!

In other, more relevant news, a punishing 3 days, being back at work and jet-lag have caught up and bitten me in the ass – hard.  A few years ago I would have hauled my bad-ass self to the gym and worked out until I puked instead of resting, but age and wisdom have been bestowed upon me (thanks to an injury that informed me in a loud, booming voice that I was not, as I had previously believed, immortal) a sensible inner voice, and I am taking what I believe people refer to as a ‘rest’ day.  I will, obviously, be hittin’ it hard tomorrow!
