the beginning

Living longer Just a quick announcement, from this issue onwards NAG Magazine will be available at all Pick 'n Pay stores. We've also increased our overall print run to meet the demand in some areas. What this means to you is that you should have no more trouble finding the magazine. We're growing and improving each month and soon we'll be so big headed we won't answer our letters anymore.

There is a point to what follows a little further on, so bear with me while I bear my soul. Last year sometime I made a foolish bet with a buddy of mine that I could reach a set body weight in six months, too much male posturing and alcohol being the major contributors. The bet was, I must lose 15 kilograms by December and win R500. Simple enough - December came and went and I'd actually managed to go up in kilograms - those damn Wimpy breakfasts! So the bet was extended to May the next year for R 1000 [plus endless ridicule from said friend]. It's now March, I've started running and at the current loss of weight I should come in close to the target. But all this is beside the point, it's just scene setting for the next paragraph. The point here is that I went out and bought a running magazine, because I'm clueless about my new sport. I'd surfed countless websites but the sheer amount of information there actually makes it difficult to find anything useful. Paging through
