“Excuse me mate, you’re pissing on my trainers.” “It’s only piss, get over it.” Awesome…there really is no come back to that. This was the start of my 15th marathon experience. I’d come a long way since my first back in Chester in 2013. Back then I finished in a respectable 4:20.47. Sure, it wasn’t […]Read more "Manchester Marathon – 7th April 2019.

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"

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. Itch scratched and all that. But there’s something about the marathon that keeps […]Read more "The perfect ten?"
When I ran my second marathon at Chester in 2014 I crossed the line in 3:49.22. Naturally I was looking for an improvement when I signed up to my first Spring marathon at Manchester in 2015. Sadly it wasn’t meant to be… I crossed the line in 3:54.07. Another attempt at Manchester a year later […]Read more "Manchester Marathon Review (Sunday April 2nd 2017)"
