I love Brooks running shoes. Brooks Ghost 5s were my first ever 'proper' running shoe, and were followed by Ghost 7s and 10s for all of my long runs; with the Brooks Ravenna, Launch and Glycerin models being used for shorter and training runs. I treated myself to a pair of Launch 7s last April,… Continue reading New Brooks Ghost 13 trainers
Organised by Crowborough Runners, the Crowborough 10K and 5K returned in 2019 for a 33rd time, with Chip Timing provided by Nice Work. For some unknown reason I’d never considered taking part before, and had heard that the route was quite tough; but have just moved house into Crowborough town and thought that it only… Continue reading Crowborough 5K 2019

Emails from the race organisers… Continue reading Running the Richmond RunFest Half Marathon
I ran the London 10,000 for the first time four years ago and it holds some great memories: it was the first time I experienced a big, well-organised running event, and it had me hooked. I took part during 2013, 2014 and 2016 and couldn’t wait to return in 2017. The trains were all out… Continue reading Loving the London 10,000
