The marketing folks at Great Run have been working overtime. This year the Great Edinburgh Run was re-branded “The World’s Favourite Race”, with T shirts to prove it. It is indeed a great city course, but somebody forgot to organise the weather. Again. So there I was, amongst about 4,000 fellow runners, jumping up and […]

Preparations for this one were far from ideal. After a great month of running in August, expectations of achieving a good time in my first half marathon for a year were soaring, but that all dissipated when I came to a grinding halt in September. That, and a jet-lag inducing trip to Boston for the week […]

I seem to have spent a lot of time whining on this blog recently. Injuries, lack of running opportunities, blah, blah.

The first part of my training plan for the Paris Marathon went precisely how Hal Higdon would have liked it to have gone. Bring it on, I thought. A little early, as it turned out, as when embarking the second part of the plan, several life-factors conspired to rob me of energy, making each run […]

Spot the difference I checked in early for the inaugural Livingston 10K fun run and was presented with my number – 95. That looks familiar, I thought. A quick iPhone google later confirmed it. I was to be Lightening McJogger for the day. How could I fail to record a PB now?! Clutching my celebrity […]

I have spent the best part of this week in the Boston area. I expected a change of scenery but got more than I bargained for, as it turns out that GoogleUK’ing “Weather Boston” brings up Boston UK not Boston US. So I was prepared for 18 degrees but not the volcano-like 35 degrees that […]
