A week on Saturday (the 31st Augugst) I will attempt to run my second marathon distance to celebrate my birthday. Thankfully I’m not doing it alone. I have a good number of friends and family joining me for bits of the run [..]

DDBD 2013

DDBD 2013

So some of you may remember that last year I had this crazy idea to run a marathon on my birthday. I started in Dorchester and finished at the Cove Inn on Portland after 26.2(ish) miles of running. Along the way I [..]

Help Needed Staying on Plan

Help Needed Staying on Plan

Ok! Time for a new training plan. I’ve been slowly and slowly becoming more lazy over the last few weeks and it’s time to mix things up a little with a new plan. I’ve been running a set three times a week [..]

A New Dawn, A New Day

A New Dawn, A New Day

I’ve been trying to get back on track after a tough couple of weeks of next to no exercise, illness and poor diet. It’s hard going to try and be good all the time. This week started well with less calories consumed, [..]

My Dirty Little Secret

My Dirty Little Secret

I have a dirty little secret. I have an addiction. It sometimes keeps me awake at night and distracts me during the day. I am a running shoe addict. It started off small, my first pair, they felt so comfortable. It was [..]

Beauty of the Irrational

I came across this video today on vimeo and thought it worth sharing. Ryan Sandes is obviously as far from me as you can get in terms of running performance and achievements, he looks insanely fit, motivated and looks like he spends [..]

Running: The Idiot’s Guide (PART I)

I’ve now been running for 1 year and 8 months. In that time I’ve run nearly 1,500 miles (that’s almost Dublin to Rome according to google maps). That to most of my fellow runners isn’t a mind blowing feat but for those [..]

I Just thought I’d take the opportunity to update the blog with how things are going on the running front. As usual there is some good and some bad (life in balance huh?).  I’ll cover the bad first. The bad is my [..]

Disco’s Daring Birthday Dash (Event Report)

Well last Saturday as planned I set out to complete my first marathon distance run. A tough 26.2 mile course that would see me climb close to a couple of thousand feet in terms of elevation and also included some 8 miles of [..]

Tomorrow I attempt my first marathon distance run. Thankfully I’m not doing it alone. I have a good number of friends and family joining me for bits of the run (about 20 peeps if all goes well). I’m not sure if I’ll [..]

Disco Birthday Bash (Finishing Line Party)

On the 1st September I’ll be one day into my 33rd year on this planet (yeegads! I still feel 15). I’m celebrating by running a marathon (as life is far too short to not give it a go). It’s a casual affair [..]

Worried Man…Has Plan

Worried Man…Has Plan

Well plans are now in motion, the metaphorical digital gauntlet has been metaphorically thrown down and in about 5 weeks time I’ll be embarking on my first stab at running a marathon (a real one – not a metaphor). OK so I’m [..]

I re-caught the taking photos whilst out on the run bug again recently (especially on longer runs). I post most of them to instagr.am and twitter/facebook but I think I’ll post the odd favourite here to pad out my current lack of [..]

Disco’s Daring Birthday Dash

I had quite a fantastic idea today (no sniggering at the back)! It was rather inspired by the activities at the weekend on the Liberty Loco. My birthday is fast approaching and as some of you know I’ve spent a good part [..]

Yesterday I embarked on a running event with a difference. The event was organised by Peter Herridge who regularly records and uploads a mostly running flavoured podcast called Spikes.  The idea was to have a social run (not a race) from Ham Hill [..]
