Famous Grouse Fell Race

Took part in the Famous Grouse Fell Race

Great event tough climb, but worth it,

Move to the Dark Side!

Joined Dark Peak Fell Runners - the Dark Side

I have completed a few races recently

Cardington Cracker - finished 12 mins faster than last year - picture above!
Worksop Half Marathon - finished in 1 hr 49 min - PB
Matthew Walker 10k - 51.05 PB

I seem to be a bit of a plodder, so need to work on my speed during the winter....

It has been a while - Home Coming

Its been a while since i have blogged on here, things and running have been going really well,

I tried and failed last year, but this year on the 20th November i ran home solo, from Derby to Nantwich, it took me across Derbyshire/Staffordshire and Cheshire, covering 53.18 miles and 7000 ft of ascent, all of which i covered in just under 11 hrs.

This after a lot of planning and training must be the hardest thing i have ever done,

I spend a few minutes thinking about this from time to time and if anybody says to me that they have had a hard week at work..... then try this.
