…for my eight marathon of the 26more ‘year’ and my personal tenth marathon. Into double figures tomorrow… I haven’t really got time today for my usual pre-marathon 3 miler so I waited until it was dark, and therefore cooler, last night to get the miles in. Weather forecast for tomorrow is not great, a very […]

It’s my third year running in Manchester and I have to say, this is my favourite 10k. True, it’s expensive, but it’s also very well organised, flat as a pancake and simply huge with 40,000 runners this year! This is the biggest 10k in the UK. They close Manchester city centre down for the event […]

Some months ago my colleague James though it would be a good idea to challenge all of his colleagues to a 10k. He’d had an email from the Civil Service Sports Club inviting him to the Queen’s Jubilee 10k in Battersea park. Obviously I was happy to offer him some competition, others were less keen, […]

Having spent last night in London at a family celebration and then driven north, battling the M1 roadworks to arrive at 2:30am, I wasn’t looking forward to the alarm. At 5am! A couple of hours sleep is not what I need. I woke up, bumbled about making little sense and could not stomach breakfast. Not […]

This will start well and might eventually descend into a rant. Sorry, but that’s what it needs! Leaving the house this morning was tough. It was raining, cold, windy and generally horrible outside. And I had another marathon to run. Not the best day for a very long run eh?! We parked the car and […]

It’s raining today. Good practice for tomorrow I suspect. The forecast is grim for the Manchester marathon tomorrow. Rain and windy is the expectation. If it is right, it’s going to be a long cold run! My friend Keith dropped me a text last night to say he’s finally given in and signed up for […]

In the quest for a more relaxed week of running I joined Dave and Paddy, running with the middle group at our club run this evening. The group often breaks into two, unintentionally. Dave, Paddy and I had a great run with the back half of the group, taking in Farnham park along the way […]

Today is anti-marathon day at Allow me to explain. I’m not running London this year but I have a Good for Age time to claim a place for 2013. Given I ran a marathon last weekend and will be running another next weekend, this is a good thing! I hereby label today anti-marathon day. […]

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 […]

Today I entered another marathon. No, I’m not trying to sneak another one in, I’m trying to space them out a bit instead. I entered the Wales Marathon, starting in Tenby. It’s a really hilly one and no doubt will be a challenge for me, but it’s probably better to do that and drop the […]
