Marathon training this time around has fairly taken it out of me. I think the year has caught up with me somewhat as I have trained variations in distance as well as different disciplines as I transitioned into Triathlons. Next year my focus will be on endurance and long distances so 10k’s, and to some […]Read more "Looking Towards Dublin Marathon 2015."
Last year I uttered the immortal words… “One and out.” I was referring to running a marathon of course.

2012 has been by and far one of the most challenging and rewarding years in my running life so far.

Once we’d […]Read more "THE THAMES PATH CHALLENGE (50K) 2012"
Well, seen as I have nothing really much to report until my ½ Marathon in Warrington on Sunday I thought I might post a review on a book about running (well to be strictly true it’s about triathlons) that I finished not so long back. The book in question was IRON WAR by Matt Fitzgerald. […]Read more "IRON WAR BY MATT FITZGERALD – A REVIEW"
It was Sunday 12th August 2012 and the day of The Cross Bay Challenge had finally arrived. I had been looking forward to this run ever since I’d found out about it and realised that it was a feasible run to include around my work commitments. It was a moderately early start of getting up […]Read more "Running on Water – The Cross Bay Challenge 2012."
