“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"
It goes without saying that I’ve fallen in love with Chester Marathon. After all, it was my marathon debut in 2013 and I’ve been back a few times since. My finish times for the event are as follows: 2013 (Marathon debut) – 4:20.47. The wheels fell off around 18 miles and I didn’t, yet, have […]Read more "Chester Marathon review – Sunday 8th October 2017."
I haven’t blogged for a few weeks (maybe a few months). In all honesty I’ve been rushed off my feet. Not only have I been training for marathons but I’ve been studying a nutrition diploma.

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)"
The Wilmslow Half Marathon was never really on my radar. I’d provisionally decided to do the local duathlon on Sunday 19th March just to keep my legs ticking over but then I found out that there were a fair few local runners heading down to take part in the Wilmslow Half Marathon. I was further […]Read more "The Wilmslow Half Marathon Review – March 19th 2017."
