Everyone is entitled to a recovery day after a tough, long run and on Monday I was treated to just that!

It may have been the 10th anniversary of this race but it was only my second time running the event.


Well, what can I say?  I absolutely love this race.  I know I have not run many marathons but this race is my favourite by far.  It has a fantastic atmosphere, the rout...

Often people of York, myself included, forget what a privilege it is to live in such a wonderful City.  We have so many fabulous sights right on our doorstep and we do not take the time to explore these.

Well, it is that time again....the opening of the London Marathon ballot.


Every year I enter, every year my decline arrives in October!


I have now entered the race about 10 times in all and I have ran it just the once, back in 2010.  It was in fact my second marathon a...

Well, good evening fellow runners.  Today is a good day.  Not only is it my wedding anniversary (18 years to the day), I thought I would also use this special day to launch my web page.
