Bolton Hill Marathon 2014

This weekend was going to be a big “ask” from me. I had booked to do this double marathon on the day of my operation back on 9th December but hadn’t planned on losing so much training time through illness after I had recovered from the operation. I knew the course was going to be [...]

The 2014 Malta Experience

Malta has always been a place I’ve fancied to visit. I knew it had close ties with the UK in its history but was also full of its own long history and beautiful architecture, which I’ve be curious to see. The fact it also held its own marathon in February was a bonus and a [...]

All Going Wrong

Sometimes it feels like your running uphill! I knew the operation on my torn cartilage in my right knee on 9th December 2913 would stop me running through December 2013. So what had been a fantastic running year for me in 2013, with a 3:08 in Blackpool, completing my 100th marathon and completing my second [...]

Winter Sunrise Spectacular

Did anyone else see the wonderful sunrise this morning? In the clear deep blue sky before sun rise there was an immense wafer thin and uniform flat cloud, like an after eight mint covering half of the sky. Its underside was glowing with a colour somewhere between crimson and fuchsia pink. I was totally gutted [...]

The right knee that’s not right
