Firstly a huge thank you to the response to my last blog. From PMs to texts to comments to messages to conversations, I really appreciate every one who went out their way to acknowledge how I had been feeling, ask how I was feeling, and just offer me friendly words. Genuinely, it's humbling to see … Continue reading Streets of your town – The Paisley 10k 2017
Disclaimer: again none of this will make sense. Spoiler, I ran crap but I’m happy. Go figure. The tunes are on the playlist. Friday came along. Heat 8 of the GAA miler met 1500m. Seeded no. 1 and in the inside lane. And sort of up for it. Now I know my track form, I … Continue reading Fresh feeling – GAA miler meet 1500m and beyond
Disclaimer: No blog posts, tweets, Facebook posts for ages. I know. It's been a rough running time. A lot doesn't make sense. I have no rhyme reason or logic. But all I can do is explain how I am at a certain point in time. Many of you won't in a million years get how what … Continue reading Standing next to me/ Mental – Livi 1500 and part parkrun

Disclaimer and background: As the lurgy continues to ravage my house I found myself with a bit of extra time. So I am writing a blog entry in 2 parts. One on the Sunday, the one after the Wednesday race. It'll be as disjointed as an episode of River City, with less believable characters. The … Continue reading We can’t stop what’s coming – the first 800m race since 1989.
Disclaimer: Aye OK I'm a moan, I'm sensitive, I'm also very tired but I'm not going to change. Note the blog songs are all in a playlist HERE In running, in life, in work, you get weeks that are more challenging than others. Sometimes worlds align and they all batter you at the one time. … Continue reading Pushing on – includes Drumpellier 5k 2017
