    Masters Champs, Monkton June 17th

    Saturday was a great day for me. Always banging the drum for the masters league, but Saturday wasn't the league, it was a one off championship meeting, and although I only tend to do one event at the league meetings, this time I did two. It was a shame, that there was only Shannel and I competing... Continue reading »

    Trench foot? Worse than that!!!

    It didn't really fall well for me, I have had a few races lately, and it was the day after Blaydon races, but when I was telling Stephanie that the younguns were doing the THREE PEAKS OF YORKSHIRE, she just said. "Great, why don't we do it as well?" And sometimes you just know there is no point in arguing.

    It... Continue reading »

    It is 3 years since I ran this race, just a few weeks after my attempt at London marathon, if I remember right, it was a nice day then as well.

    I wasn't aware it was on, but was messaged by Kirsty who was wondering if anyone else from the club would be running. I messaged a couple of the... Continue reading »

    NEMAA T&F Match 1

    Great to be back on the track at Monkton, I am not a big fan of the track, but I do enjoy supporting the masters events. There is a masters event for everything there is in the senior leagues, sometimes though it is just incorporated in another event.

    Anyway, I have been banging the drum at... Continue reading »

    What do Grangemouth, London, Madrid and Manchester all have in common?

But , this week my diary is chocker with racing, I ran the Neptune relays on Wednesday evening and last night (Friday) I ran a trail race at Soooth Sheelz with Lee Drummond. I am doing the Sand Dancer... Read more »
