Singer Ellie Goulding is preparing for her own “hunger games” – taking up running for several years, especially sprinting, to be ready for the end of the world.
“I go running – so I’ll be ready when the world ends. Running is hugely important in my life and has been since I was 18. I woke up one morning and decided that running should be my thing. For me, it’s about more than keeping fit.
“I’m preparing myself. As a kid I’d lie awake at night and convince myself that a meteor was about to hit the Earth. It’s my fatalistic streak, which I’ve inherited from my mum.
“I firmly believe something cataclysmic is going to happen in my lifetime and I have to be prepared to run for my life when the time comes. Next year I hope to run my first marathon. Unless the world ends before I get the chance.”
How many of you have taken up fitness to help increase your chance of surviving the apocalypse…if it happens?
