Pitsford 10k

A fresh Sunday morning in Northamptonshire! And our running with my running club Olney Runners. The club organised a 10k race (basically one lap of the reservoir) for club members, their friends & family. But this year also opened it up to other local running clubs. What makes this such event is that all proceeds, […]

6 of 6 Crashed and [Wo]Burned

Last Saturday, all tattooed and keen, I made my to Woburn for the ‘Woburner Middle Distance’ race. Full of big hopes, feeling very good about it, and actually on top of my game. Confident that I knew what I was supposed to be doing. The old body felt like it was in good enough shape […]

Not the attitude really ;)

Let me start by saying that I know this is wrong attitude!! What is it you learn in sales 1-0-1, never start with a negative… Guess that was another day I just wasn’t listening!! So having broken into this little mini ramble perhaps I should get to the point?

2 of 6 Centurion Triathlon – battling on.

The Centurion Triathlon is a non-standard distance event offering either 100 km or 100 mile races. Originally I entered the 100m as a ‘test’ event before Alpe D’Huez, but as that is now scrapped I decided to be a wimp and changed distance to 100 km. Given the weather, this turned out to have been […]
