Crossing the line at the end of the Great North run I felt elated, 10 mins later I was sick and feverish. Any fitness I had in September disappeared over the next 5 weeks as I feebly battled a chest infection. Now that I’ve more or less cleared my chest and started venturing back onto [...]

It’s Christmas!

You should see the floor of my flat - tis littered with no end of exciting possibilities. I could of course take a snap and show you but then you'd see the truth, which involves an awful lot of boxes, wrapping and all those other things that I haven't quite got round to putting away [...]

Worrying Developments

I am slightly concerned about two new obsessions that seem to be gaining a foothold. Firstly you may have noticed that a whole load of ultrarunners have suddenly gatecrashed my blogroll and therefore my regular reading list. Yesterday my new book arrived, Ultramarathon Man by Dean Karnazes, and I stayed up til 3am to finish [...]

Psychic Bloglines

What's happened to Technorati lately? I use it to keep track of recent posts in all my favourite blogs but it is just not playing fair anymore. It's telling me that a lot of my fellow bloggers haven't been active in over 100 days when I know for a fact that they've been at their [...]
