I know I’m lucky and have a pretty good life and I know this because my problem is so first world trivial. Im getting fed up of the Judge. Judge Judy that is. The lady is literally the only person who always speaks sense I think but I’ve been stuck in my chair all week. […]

9 lessons learnt from the back

9 lessons learnt from the back

On Sunday at Bath Half marathon the last 248 runners didn’t get a medal or t-shirt.  The race had 15,000 entrants but ordered based on a dropout rate that assumes that at least 2,500 runners won’t turn up.  A risky business, I assume to reduce overheads, increase profits and limit the risk of being left […]

Ragnar is coming to the UK

Ragnar is coming to the UK

You know when you did a race two years ago and you’re still getting junk mail.  As i do Loveto.run and Medal.watch I keep myself subscribed to it all for race dates and possibly medal reveals.  This is why I got an email from Brighton Marathon today even though I ran it in 2015 and […]

Start spreading the news… the New York marathon lottery is open

Yes, that’s right, it opened yesterday for entry into the draw and will remain open until the 17th February. I vowed not to do any marathons in 2017 after doing so many last year (but still next to nothing compared to some of the 100 marathon club people).  23 in a year was hard work for […]

Perspective, pigeon hearts and what it means for running

I was looking at old photos yesterday and it got me thinking about change.  Photos I took years ago that I once thought where pretty good look mediocre to me now.  The photo hasn’t changed, just my perspective based on experience.  At the same time you can also find hidden gems that you never even […]

Loveto.run in fashion – Primark’s latest sporting spring look

I love the new colour schemes for ladies sports clothing at the moment. There’s a lot of pale orange and grey that almost looks like dance wear.  This grey top is £5 and has a mesh weave on the back. I tend not to like running in t-shirts because I get too hot so I’m […]

13 medal crazy Disney adventure

13 medal crazy Disney adventure

2017 is hopefully going to be a pretty chilled year in terms of running.  A few races a month and a focus on training to improve speed.  I really want the sub 25 5k and then maybe work on my 10k and half times too.  For people who know me it probably sounds really out […]

Dopey 2018 – How to secure early entry

I know it’s crazy to be talking about entering a race that’s a year away. Honestly I do. Yet I’ve just spent the evening being giddy because I’ve managed to secure entry for the 2018 Dopey Challenge. General entry opens on the 14th February, Valentines day, and Runner’s World VIP will be a few weeks […]

A new year for the fridge

A new year for the fridge

Last year I did 96 races.  My fridge was constantly covered with race bibs ready for the next race but 2017 is going to be a little different.  There are no race bibs on the fridge because for the first time in a long time i don’t have a race for over four weeks and […]

I think we need to talk about our relationship

Hi Err sorry  to blurt it out like this but I may have to leave you. It’s not me, it’s kinda you. Sorry. It’s just that there’s three of us in this relationship. You, me and them. I have some pretty big issues with them, serious issues, and so it might be better if I […]
