For the past year or so I’ve been working on putting together a virtual run to support Baby Loss and Sudden Infant Death Awareness Week. This is usually run between the 9th and 15th October. As I’m fundraising for Kicks Count this year I thought what better way than to put together a virtual 5k/10k […]Read more "Baby Loss and Sudden Infant Death Awareness Week – Memorial 5k/10k Run/Walk."
Ah Liverpool, A place I’ve spent many an hour. On Sunday 28th May though I was to spend quite a few hours here as I was taking part in the Liverpool Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon. We rocked down in DH style on the bus setting off in the early (just after 5!!) on a bus […]Read more "Liverpool Rock ‘N’ Roll Marathon review – Sunday May 28th 2017"
I’ve been a massive fan of Lancaster Three Bridges since I happened upon it in 2012.

Itch scratched and all that. But there’s something about the marathon that keeps […]Read more "The perfect ten?"
When I ran my second marathon at Chester in 2014 I crossed the line in 3:49.22. Naturally I was looking for an improvement when I signed up to my first Spring marathon at Manchester in 2015. Sadly it wasn’t meant to be… I crossed the line in 3:54.07. Another attempt at Manchester a year later […]Read more "Manchester Marathon Review (Sunday April 2nd 2017)"
The Wilmslow Half Marathon was never really on my radar. I’d provisionally decided to do the local duathlon on Sunday 19th March just to keep my legs ticking over but then I found out that there were a fair few local runners heading down to take part in the Wilmslow Half Marathon. I was further […]Read more "The Wilmslow Half Marathon Review – March 19th 2017."
