I may not have mentioned that my chip failed to register at the finish line of this years Brighton marathon. It did fail. It’s taken me a few days to get SportsSystems to review the video and add me into the results. Turns out my chip time was 3h22m38s and I crossed the line in […]

Whilst out running on Saturday afternoon I noticed this sign on Madeira Drive. I quite like it. Anyway the weather forecast at 6am suggested it could be as cold as 4 degrees. Given my ‘half a wardrobe’ approach to packing for the weekend you would expect that to be no problem at all. I had […]
