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.

Itch scratched and all that. But there’s something about the marathon that keeps […]Read more "The perfect ten?"
