While at running group a few weeks ago I spotted a new runner being introduced to people by another member of the group. I was a little out of the way but I could hear what was being said. I saw that I was being pointed at and the following was said, “That’s Steve, he’s […]Read more "English Half Marathon review – Sunday September 17th 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."

It’s a pretty simple 10k as things […]Read more "Lancaster Three Bridges Review – Sunday 30th April 2017"
I went into Blackpool Marathon knowing that it would be my tenth marathon but also in the knowledge that it wasn’t the marathon I was hoping to do. I was hoping I would be in London for what would be my tenth but sadly London Marathon rejected me (again) so I consoled myself with signing up […]Read more "Blackpool Marathon – Ten in the bag."
Blackpool will see me take part in my tenth marathon. I know, ten. There was a time when I didn’t even want to do one and then, when I did complete my first, I assumed that would be the end of it.
