Ten breathtaking miles in the snow
I went for a 10 miler today in the snow. It was one of those fantastic runs that you remember for years afterwards. It was cold (sub-zero) but crisp and dry, not damp at all. The snow was pretty thick still, about 10cm off pavement. I ran one of my usual ...

Buntingford 10
Did the Buntingford 10 in a respective 1:15:36 today. Better than I had expected given that I was dragging all these extra kilos around. There must be something about the hills on this course that makes your fats bits drag, I experienced the same sense of ...
