Janathon 2015 – Day 3: Worms


Mrs Dan declared that I needed to be home, showered, and ready to go out for 10am. I calculated that a 10 mile run would get me home with 20 minutes to get changed and ready for shopping duties. I plumped for the same 10 mile route that I ran …

Janathon 2014 – Day 2: Octopus’s Garden

Octopus lunch, student runners and the perfect afternoon of running. A slow start to the day as the kids sat around playing Nintendo games and the adults lazed around on the heated carpet. The TV was on a survival show where a pair of women and men were set on …

The Perivale 5

Long run (part 1), just in time, racing, through the line and the long run (part 3). It’s nice not having to wake up at stupid-o-clock to make my way to a race. It’s also nice to support one of our running club neighbours. Ealing, Southall & Middlesex AC were …

Royal Parks Half Marathon (2013)

The sun rises, drunks ahoy, Muppet pacing, YES YES YES, gingerbread girl, squirrel head, nutrition nightmare and how do I get home? I entered the Royal Parks Half ballot on a whim and then promptly forgot all about it until an email arrived to confirm my place. It then took …
