Flood Running: Flunning.

Today I decided to run a 10km route my dad showed me before I ran the Wycombe Half Marathon in 2011. After 2km, I was ready to go home; my knees hurt from sliding in the mud, my spine was jarring with every step and the brambles were tearing at my arms. That's when I discovered...

The Same Run As Before. BUT TWICE!

In my quest to get fit for Adventurethon 2013, I decided that running 6km at a time was getting me nowhere fast...so I did it twice. It seems I am actually improving at something!

Running the Super Spartan Race, Midlands 2012

Having noticed my blog was getting a bit text-heavy, I decided to wait a while for the photos from the Super Spartan, before writing an update. However, is has now been nearly three weeks since we ran the course and not a single photo has surfaced. To be honest, this is entirely...
