The honour system7

In the three-mile race, a teenage girl with a bandage around her knee was ahead of me. Then she gave up.

The race counted on the honour system. Otherwise, in five or six places you could have taken a short cut.

The first mile, according to Pahar, I did in under eight minutes. But then the second mile was slower because at least twenty times I had to run through puddles.
