I seem to have spent a lot of time whining on this blog recently. Injuries, lack of running opportunities, blah, blah. So while the story still feels a bit more “travel” than “running” I am happy to say that the feet have been hitting the path much more regularly of late. This summer we decided […]

The Great North Run is not a beautiful race. There are many other races which have better scenery, more attractive vistas and more variety. The Great North Run is all about the occasion, the atmosphere, the scale and the support, and on that score, nobody does it better. I entered this race way back at […]

Ah, Dundee. City of Discovery. This would be the first time I had run the same race a second time, after clocking a PB (at the time) last year. Arriving at Camperdown Park the feeling of deja vu was strong as I walked, with all the experience of one who knows, past the queues waiting for […]
