It goes without saying that I’ve fallen in love with Chester Marathon. After all, it was my marathon debut in 2013 and I’ve been back a few times since. My finish times for the event are as follows: 2013 (Marathon debut) – 4:20.47. The wheels fell off around 18 miles and I didn’t, yet, have […]Read more "Chester Marathon review – Sunday 8th October 2017."
I haven’t blogged for a few weeks (maybe a few months). In all honesty I’ve been rushed off my feet. Not only have I been training for marathons but I’ve been studying a nutrition diploma. I’m now fully qualified and looking to put my new skills into action by becoming a nutrition coach/advisor. It’s going […]Read more "It’s been a while…"
The course was short. The T-Shirt was ill fitting. The medal wasn’t anything to write home about. Goodie bags were thrown in the mud and left for participants to collect themselves.

I’d be training […]Read more "HELL ON THE HUMBER (HOTH) REVIEW – AUGUST 19th/20th 2017"
Over the years, despite a brave outward façade, I’ve often struggled with self-doubt. I always find, however, that the self-doubt is always in fierce competition with my desire not to be outdone. Which is exactly what brought me back to Ullswater Triathlon this July. After a less than stellar outing the year previously where I battled […]Read more "Ullswater Triathlon Review – Saturday July 8th 2017."
Much like my previous post about the Carlisle Tri Club 10k, The Appleby 10k has become a staple of my running calendar. This is mostly down to the fact that they run a fun run before the 10k which I’ve taken part in with my son for the past three years. Previous attempts had seen […]Read more "Appleby 10k Review – Sunday 25th June 2017."
