My Blog

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Not exactly sure what I'll be posting about, but will be centred around preparation for the marathon - fund raising ideas, run routes, things that annoy me when I am running, etc. Will look to update and maintain every other day (or until I lose interest).

My reason for starting a blog is to keep you kind people who have (or will) sponsor me ( informed of my progress in preparing for the marathon. Additionally, once my running career is over I imagine I will look back fondly on the drivel posted.

Lastly, I appreciate any support you can provide. It would be great if you could donate but also any tips you could give for fund raising or preparing for the run would be much appreciated. If you want to join me on a jog, let me know - cheers!

Do not read while driving

Jesus, Mary and Joseph I'm tired!  Hence the late post, I figured if I posted last night it would have been half arsed and not provided the top quality drivel that you have come to expect.

Ran 3 times last week with the big one coming on Saturday - 16 miles (2 hrs 15 mins thereabouts).  It was fun and enjoyed the majority of the route especially the Thames - pretty cool Christmas fair on by Southbank at the moment.  One thing that did occur to me when I was constantly dodging the legions of tourists was that I'd be pretty much a pro at British bulldog now ( ).  I did feel pretty ill after the run, very hot/dehydrated - next time I will take on more fluids and perhaps buy a utility belt to use (like Batman).
The knee (see last update, I wouldn't say the knee is getting worse but its certainly not getting better. Still hurting, had to stop and stretch the knee when I got off the tube this evening :(.
Its getting noticeably colder now and am considering wearing my running gloves.  You won't catch me in leggings though not since the police pulled me over the last time.

I was a bit of a social animal this week kicking off with the office Christmas party on Thursday.  I won't go into much detail but for those who were there - dancing girls, inflatable tommy guns and Gerald owning the dance floor.
Saturday night was a birthday party - congrats Nick (well played on the poker, as long as Scottish doesn't win).  Turns out I can't really handle my drink (which is strange considering I am a 1/4 Irish) and felt terrible the next day.  I tried to make up for it by taking in some culture.  Went to the latest exhibition at Tate Modern ( - big paintings.  Then went out later for cupcakes ( - small cakes.

As ever I appreciate any support ( ) and please enjoy the rest of the week!
