Find a way to toughen up your hands. A friend of mine used to smack his palms with a hammer handle to toughen them up. Also, hold an icecube in your fist before and after runs. It'll help to minimize blisters in my experience, though I'm not sure why or how.
I spent most of my money on booze, broads and boats. The rest I wasted. - Elmore Leonard
I had always thought that there was nothing quite so sad as an abandoned boat.-Terry Hayes
