Asics GT-2170 Running Shoe Review

Asics GT-2170 Running Shoe Review Thumbnail

My very first running shoe was from the Asics GT range and ignoring the occasional dalliance with ultra minimal barefoot shoes, and condition specific trail shoes, I've stuck with Asics all the way. I'm afraid to say that as the years have passed my wallet has expanded and I have been persuaded to part with [...]

Garmin Forerunner 310XT – The Review

Garmin Forerunner 310XT – The Review Thumbnail

Having abandoned treadmill running in favour of the great outdoors it wasn’t long before I began to bemoan the loss of my preferred running watch the Garmin Forerunner 305. I long for pretty maps to illustrate my outdoor running routes and spur me on to explore my surroundings and for that you need GPS. Fortunately [...]

This time last year I came face to face with the world renowned shambles that is the British London 10k. Fortunately, this time round I was invited to join the Surrey Housewives Set in their annual attempt to show Michael O'Reilly how mass participation events should be organised. Under the auspices of SHS1 the humongous [...]

Garmin Forerunner 405 – The Review

As you all know, I think the Garmin Forerunner 305 is the best thing since sliced bread but I'm so fickle it's taken barely a thought for me to stick it on ebay and swap it for the new version - the Forerunner 405. I'd like to say the new and IMPROVED Forerunner 405 but [...]

New Shoe MoJo

I cut last weeks long run short to attend pressing matters at the allotment so this week I thought I'd reverse my priorities - head to the plot first and then leave the afternoon free for running. After a few hours of digging in the wind I couldn't decide if I was more in need [...]

Return of the Civilised Running Commute

I've finally managed to wangle a work placement within a civilised radius of my home, so that means the running commute is back! I've been looking forward to this for ages, at last I can enjoy some scenic running routes rather than suffocating myself on fumes as I run along the edge of the A4. [...]

Better Late than Never

Better Late than Never Thumbnail

As usual I wake up on race day, filled with absolute dread. Looking back it seems quite an appropriate apprehension. The British London 10k had already been billed to me as being just about the worst race in the UK calendar and with just moments to go before the start I found myself enveloped in [...]

A Half Commute

My regular running commute has been on the back burner for a while. I started at my new placement a few weeks ago which has pushed the required running distance to 13 miles, part of which covers a portion of the West's very own murder mile, or in fact murder 12 miles. Needless to say [...]

Gadgets & Gear Thumbnail

I’m a self confessed gadget freak and another close shave with ebay and a ridiculously expensive but absolutely essential running watch has triggered the creation of this page – my homage to sports gadgets (specifically running gadgets), gear and utilities that you can almost not afford to live without. There is a link to all [...]
