It’s been another great year in terms of my running. I set goals at the start of the year and I managed to hit them all. January saw me take part in the Inskip Half Marathon and set a new half marathon PB of 1:33.18…and ended up with a snazzy new bobble hat. February saw […]Read more "2017 – A review of favourite/notable races"
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old, Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning We will remember them.” The Windmill 10k has become another favourite on my racing calendar. 2016 was the first year of […]Read more "Windmill 10k review – Sunday 12th November 2017"
Much like my previous post about the Carlisle Tri Club 10k, The Appleby 10k has become a staple of my running calendar.

I’ve only missed it once since then (we broke down on the motorway) but we’ve made it a real family outing over the years, even including one outing with my DH family. It’s a pretty simple 10k as things […]Read more "Lancaster Three Bridges Review – Sunday 30th April 2017"
Having come off the back of the marathon leg of The Lakesman my plan was always to do a few 10k’s as I started building up to Chester Marathon in October. The best thing about the 10k’s that I had chosen were that they had fun runs setting off before the main races. This meant […]Read more "Review: Appleby 10k (26th June) and Workington Festival of Running (3rd July)"
Wednesday 1st June was the beginning of what would be a packed week of competing. It was a last minute decision to run the Carlisle Tri Club 10k due to the fact that I had to work a night-shift following it. But in the end I just decided to man up and get amongst it.
