Year draws to a close

Has been a bit of a learning year for me on various levels this year. Have fallen short of my running target for the year and haven’t really improved. Too little running and too little focus have been my big problems. Have managed to do two more ultras this year and knocked over 30 minutes […]

Home stretch…

Getting close to my first half marathon. Tried the get a decent run in last Sunday and again failed. Confidence for this weekend was low.
