What can I say? This was one of my best runs. After Ross and being under prepared I got myself sorted and in two weeks turned it around. While 5km is not long it is a fast run, and I wanted to feel confident on the flat loop and be able to push myself. I … Continue reading Crank-e 5k: 16/9/18
It was all going well until it wasn't. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it all falls in a heap. And sometimes it gets all muddled up. Which is what happened for my last race.

I've learnt over the last twelve months how to manoeuvre these roads and be as safe as possible until the last … Continue reading Night running – be organised and be safe
This year I have had many awesome runs, many less than ideal runs. I've run over 915kms as if writing this, I've run PB's and completely fallen short of them.
