Salisbury parkrun

4 laps of the pirate ship, followed by coffee and cake. And that, parkrun lovers, is why Salisbury parkrun was a winner! Why Salisbury parkrun? With some of our parkrun crew on the PB hunt, Salisbury parkrun had been flagged as both flat and fast. […]

Running Bratislava

Running Bratislava

When you can book a return flight to Bratislava, albeit in January, for only £25, the only question is why wouldn’t you? I agree that it’s possibly not the most popular city break destination. But with an open mind and a sense of adventure we […]

Newbury parkrun

Newbury parkrun

Sometimes you just want to run on a trail somewhere beautiful. Luckily for that, there’s Newbury parkrun. Why Newbury parkrun? With the option of almost any parkrun between Baskingstoke and High Wycombe, I panicked. The pressure of choosing just one, was too much. I sent […]

St Albans parkrun

St Albans parkrun

I’ve never been much of a saint, but for St Albans parkrun, I was prepared to make an exception! 5k of running at its saintliest, and more importantly, the letter ‘S’ ticked off my parkrun alphabet. Why St Albans parkrun? To be perfectly honest, because […]

Brokenhurst Parkrun

Brokenhurst Parkrun

The New Forest is one of my favourite places to run, and I’m going to let you in on a secret…… Brokenhurst Parkrun is just a little bit special. Why Brokenhurst Parkrun? When your birthday falls on Parkrun day, it would be rude not to […]

Training Weekly: Chicago week 12/16

Training Weekly: Chicago week 12/16

After Sunday’s disaster, and a second failed long run in as many weeks, I’m not sure where all this is going. Will I end up making it to the Chicago start line? Right now, I really don’t know. But I am determined to find a […]

Training Weekly: Chicago week 11/16

Training Weekly: Chicago week 11/16

So, this good week, bad week cycle is getting old now. Fingers crossed it does at least mean this week should be a better one, but it also means Chicago falls in a ‘bad week’, and I really need to break the cycle. Over the […]
