Goodwood marathon – 06/12/20

Regular subscribers will once again note that it's gone a bit quiet on the ol' blogging front in the last couple of months. That tw*tty virus is very much still amongst us, like that annoying hanger-on at a party that you just can't get rid of. I'm struggling with it, as I'm sure are 99.9% … Continue reading Goodwood marathon – 06/12/20

Outlaw X middle distance triathlon – 27/09/2020

Right then sports fans - we've got an actual race to report on! None of this, 5,000 laps of Eton Dorney where your pedal falls off and there only ends up being 4 finishers in your age category. Instead, an actual big event, stacked field, can't sleep the night before because of nerves kind of … Continue reading Outlaw X middle distance triathlon – 27/09/2020

Cape Peninsula Half Marathon – 16/02/20

Good morning/afternoon sports fans. Yet another slightly longer gap between posts. Not me being lazy this time, just no real races of note to report on, and nobody wants to hear 'I ran x miles on Monday followed by swimming x miles on Tuesday etc etc' - people only read to hear about me making … Continue reading Cape Peninsula Half Marathon – 16/02/20

Ucka trail/Frankfurt this weekend..

It's been 2 months since I last posted - an absolute barren spell in the history of this blog. Despite being contacted by both regional and national press, enquiring about my whereabouts and next moves, I've kept myself to myself and tried to sort out some issues closer to home. I've always set myself a … Continue reading Ucka trail/Frankfurt this weekend..

Challenge Roth – 07/07/2019

Challenge Roth is one of the biggest triathlons in the world. It’s been running since 1984, taking place in the small town of Roth, near Nuremberg, in Germany. Ever since I started triathlon it had been on my bucket list of races to do, and when I got the chance to sign up shortly before … Continue reading Challenge Roth – 07/07/2019

Green Belt Relay 2019

The Green Belt Relay. Who can think of a better way of spending your entire day, than being shuttled around the outskirts of the M25 in a minibus, sharing close personal space with 43 other runners who have raced but definitely not showered, before getting a few hours kip and doing it all over again? … Continue reading Green Belt Relay 2019

Wimbledon 10km – 12/05/2019

It's the one they've all been talking about in the papers. In the final week before the race, the media attention was relentless, with a reporter from the Wandsworth Guardian camped outside our house, hoping for a scoop. He managed to get a photo of Katie taking the bins out in her slippers, before she … Continue reading Wimbledon 10km – 12/05/2019

London Marathon – 28/04/2019

Last Sunday I was fortunate enough to line up against (quite far behind) some of the best runners in the world, in my 4th London Marathon. I've said it before, and no doubt I'll say it again - it's the best race in the world. As long as I'm lucky enough to run a time … Continue reading London Marathon – 28/04/2019

Victoria Park 10km/London Marathon preview

Here we go again then. Nearly time for the annual jaunt around the streets of the capital. Without doubt, one of my favourite days of the year and one of the best races on the calendar. Those with excessive time on their hands/jobs they don't really enjoy, can read up on previous editions here; 2015 - … Continue reading Victoria Park 10km/London Marathon preview

Surrey Half – 11/03/2019 (1:30 pacer)

March already? Crikey. Pancake day has gone, colleagues in the office have already given up on their lent targets, and runners everywhere are starting to realise that the spring marathons are just around the corner. Quite unbelievably, someone told me that I needed to blog more. No, it wasn't my Mum, she doesn't count. So … Continue reading Surrey Half – 11/03/2019 (1:30 pacer)
