About yesterday…

On my run this morning, I was pumped, like eye of the tiger, chariots of fire pumped. It took all my effort to hold back from gunning the entire way, it's great when this happens. There is one reason for this...yesterday was the Boston Marathon, and it was fucking incredible. I don't want this to... Continue Reading →

Another one bites the dust.

It is Sunday March 31st. Nine minutes ago I should have set off at the Bedford Autodrome Half Marathon. Instead, I am sitting in London, post breakfast bagel, with a coffee in hand, wondering what could have been...again. I'm certainly not complaining.

Things what I did 2.0

As I mentioned before, times and pbs hold as much significance as you choose to give them. As I also said, I personally like knowing what people have run when I read their blogs. With that in mind, my current personal bests. 5k: 17:55 10k: 37:55 Half Marathon: 1:25:18 Marathon: 2:57:32 53 Miles: 10:49 100km:... Continue Reading →
