Coming First in Something

Okay, it might not be a marathon, 10k or even a 5k but I’m coming first in some ways. When I originally started this blog I would go onto Google and do some different searches to see where I came (if anywhere) in the list/results.  I used to just search on “virtual runner” or “the […]

Friends & Family

Won’t be long now (scary) and I’ll be in Canada visiting family and attempting my very first marathon. Besides being excited (and scared) about the marathon, I’m also excited to see my family.  We tend to only visit Canada about once a year and we never got to go to Canada last year because we […]

Rob is back

I can’t believe it.  After months of being completely out of touch, my mate Robby Kilborn has finally contacted me via facebook to let me know he is still alive. My friend Rob has been travelling by dogsled all the way across northern Canada to Alaska, USA! He sent me a message to say “I‘m […]

Running Clubbed

I went back to my local running club last week on Wednesday night for the first time in a long time (since early last year). A good friend of mine went with me to see what it was like and he joined the “special” group for the 1st timers to learn the track rules and […]
